Pre-orders for Nokia Lumia 625 sell out on India's Snapdeals
Nokia has had a big winner with both the entry-level Nokia Lumia 520 and its twin, the T-Mobile branded Nokia Lumia 521. Now, it looks like the Nokia Lumia 625 might be following in the footsteps of the those two models. The handset sporting the largest screen of any Lumia flavored Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 625 was being made available for pre-orders in India from online retailer Snapdeals and has already sold out. Snapdeals was asking for a down payment of 1000 Rs ($16.22) with the remaining amount due upon the release of the phone in the last week of August.

Based on some data from mobile ad network AdDupplex, the Nokia Lumia 625 has already captured 1% of the Windows Phone market in Thailand after being launched there just days ago. Despite the large 4.7 inch screen, the rest of the specs are decidedly low to mid-range. The display's resolution of 480 x 800 results in a rather low pixel density of 201 ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 with only 512MB of RAM. There is 8GB of native storage inside along with a 64GB capacity microSD slot. A 5MP camera on back captures video in 1080 x 1920 at 30fps and there is a VGA front-facing shooter. The 2000mAh battery keeps the lights on.

With its success in the low-light photography niche and in the low-to-mid-range market, Nokia is building up some steam at the right time, just a few months prior to the all important holiday shopping season.
