Nokia’s biggest smartphone to date, the 4.7-inch Lumia 625, might never land on American shores, but since its price tag is to redefine budget consciousness, it’s bound to make huge waves in Europe and Asia.
Especially that the phone’s makers have decided to put the thing up for sale earlier than it was initially announced. Specifically, the Lumia 625 is already out and about in France and will be up on British store shelves as soon as August 28.
Les français (that’s French for “the French”, by the by) can score the mid-range Windows Phone for just €1 with Orange contracts or €289.90 outright, which is roughly 380 US bucks. Meanwhile, blokes on British shores should get ready to cough up £179 for the device on Pay As You Go (aka off-contract), while on-contract the upfront payment will be £0 with monthly plans of at least £21.
I don’t know about you, but those sound like pretty awesome deals to me, given the Nokia Lumia 625 is no pushover, packing a dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon CPU, 8 GB of on-board storage, microSD support and a 2,000 mAh battery.
True, there are quite a few flaws to go with those strong suits, including 512 MB of RAM and a sub-par 800 x 480 pixels resolution for the large display, but all in all the quality-pricing ratio is rock solid. Isn’t it?
