Nokia Lumia 505 coming 'soon'

Nokia Lumia 505 coming 'soon'
The affordable Nokia Lumia 505 first leaked out less than a week, teased by Mexican carrier Telcel, and now the device has reappeared and seems to be ‘coming soon.’ The Lumia 505 is an affordable device that never got officially unveiled by Nokia, and for the time being it seems like its launch will only happen in limited markets.

It does pack a lot of muscle for an affordable handset, and most surprising is the inclusion of an 8-megapixel camera. That’s great news for those who prefer smaller and more affordable devices. Here is what is known so far about the Lumia 505’s specs:

- 3.7” Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels
- 8MP rear camera
- 4GB internal storage
- Windows Phone 7.8

The Lumia 505 will ship in three color versions - a black, red and magenta one. Stay tuned, we’ll update you as soon as we learn about its actual price and release date.

4G internal Storage for a windows phone will be equals to about 1G of available user space. This phone has to come with an expandable memory

It's really a mixed bag. "Ooooh 3.7 inches of AMOLED and 8 MP on the back, I'm soooo gonna buy this 'coz it's also really cheap and because Android is sooooo too mainstream!" And then, "4 GB????????? What they want me to store in that sh*t, mah phonebook? AND WINDOWS 7.8??????? THERE'S WINDOWS 8 ALREADY, 7.8 IS LOWER THAN 8 AND THAT MEANS IT'S NOT THE LATEST AND MAH FRIENDS WOULD THINK AM SOOOOOOOOO STUPID 'COZ THEY WOULD SAY IT'S SOOOOOOOO NOT THE LATEST GIRL!!!!!!"

It will also use MicroSIM, I read that it may release with WP 7.5 since WP 7.8 won't be released until next month.

Instead of making high end Lumia phones that are on par with S3 HtcOneX , Nokia are producing more low end phones, how sad™®©

I think you should change your name 'TROLL' to 'HATER'

"DONTMINDMEIMSTUPID" would be more appropriate.

Oh how modest of you :), you know...I always thought that the™®© stands for "™Retradedly Contagious", but I do agree on the don't mind him part.

They just released L920. It would be dumb to announce new flagship phone just weeks after L920 became available on market. And after all, it's Samsung and HTC turn now, to show they can keep up with Nokia.

Surprising that they'd put this out with only Windows 7.8, but I suppose this is only meant to be a budget handset.

It should support micro sd otherwise 8mp camera is irrelevant
