Nokia to bring 4G, 3G mobile phones to India at lower prices
Nokia has indicated to lower prices of 4G and 3G mobile phones in India to leverage operators’ plans to launch high speed 4G services and boost its market share in the country.
Microsoft’s Mobile Device Sales, Corporate Vice President Chris Weber said -
“We want to continue to push point lower and lower than anything we have today. That’s the statement for both 3G and LTE (4G) because that is the thing which gives us scale of the ecosystem. We are also trying to push price point even lower on LTE devices like 635 to take advantage of that opportunity. The goal is to make sure that we have a full portfolio that plays into that opportunity.”
The company has plans to launch its latest 4G enabled phone Lumia 830 priced at around Rs 26,000 before taxes by October, as per sources. Microsoft Devices also unveiled another 4G enabled handset Lumia 735 priced at around Rs 17,500 but sources were not sure about company’s plan to launch this model in India.
Consumers may get about 10-12 times more Internet speed on mobile phones in 4G compared to average speed they get in 3G services. So things are finally looking bright for consumers.
