While Nokia huge commitment to Windows Phone can be seen clearly through its four Lumia devices, their Windows Phone’s master plan apparently goes beyond producing just mid and high-end devices. According to Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop, the company is planning to bring the operating system into the low-end smartphone market which is currently being dominated by Google’s Android devices.
With that, Elop have also confirmed that Nokia is planning to have devices with a price point that is lower thanNokia Lumia 610 which is currently priced at RM 699. Interesting enough, this confirmation comes just a week before Microsoft kicks off its Windows Phone Summit in San Francisco whereby it is rumored that the next iteration of the operating system – Windows Phone 8 – will be revealed at that very event.
It might be a little bit too early to see those ultra-budget Windows Phone devices at the developer’s event but still…one can always hope.
