Nokia Lumia 830 starts shipping around the world, brings PureView to more people
Microsoft today confirmed that the Nokia Lumia 830 is launching around the world starting this week. The Lumia 830 is Microsoft’s “affordable flagship” - the cheapest handset ever to offer Nokia’s PureView imaging technology. The PureView camera of the 830 is a 10 MP one with Optical Image Stabilization, Zeiss optics, LED flash, and 1080p video recording.

Running Windows Phone 8.1 with the very latest Lumia Denim update, the 830 comes with Cortana, Microsoft Office, Action Center, Word Flow, and 15 GB of free OneDrive storage space. Other features include LTE connectivity, NFC, a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory. The new handset weighs 150 grams, measures 139.4 x 70.7 x 8.5 mm (this making it the thinnest Lumia yet), and includes a 2200 mAh battery.

The suggested retail price of the Nokia Lumia 830 is €330 (which hopefully means less than $400 in US dollars). Several color versions will be available, including white, black, green, and orange.  

Of course, not everyone will be able to buy the handset starting this week. For example, it looks like customers in the US will have to wait until next month to get their hands on the smartphone, as AT&T may not sell it before November 7. It's said that Verizon and T-Mobile are also getting ready to offer the Lumia 830 (this, however, hasn't been confirmed yet).
