Another member in the Nokia Lumia series gets cheaper by Rs. 5000. You can now buy the Nokia Lumia 800 for just Rs. 23,790 available from Letsbuy.com.
It started with Nokia Lumia 710 which is now available for Rs. 15,699. I guess this did help boost up sales and now the Nokia Lumia 800 is available for as low as Rs. 23,790, a saving of almost Rs. 5,000.
There are two reasons why we are seeing a price drop for the Lumia Series. One reason is that sales figures aren’t impressive, reducing the price will help increase it. Another reason is the launch of new handsets that will soon hit the Indian markets.
Nokia recently announced the low budget Lumia 610 handset and another high end phone called the Nokia 808 Pureview with 41 MP camera. By the time these handsets reach the Indian markets, the dealers will try to dispose the older models i.e. 710 and 800 by either reducing the cost or giving some freebies with the box pack.
The consumers has an advantage, they are getting the latest Windows phone from a Nokia brand now at a much affordable cost. I know those of you who had just bought the Nokia 800 a few days back may be cursing their luck.
