Can't upload photos can't upload video...all the apps are incomplete..other than that.its ok....lol...Not!!
It seems that they - whether it's Microsoft or Nokia's doing - are only interested in gaining (more of) a foothold in some markets, perhaps like the USA. I need to publicise the fact that here in South Africa, the retailers are still selling the Nokia 520 (don't obviously get the 521 here) for almost the equivalent of US$200 (two hundred!), and they won't budge much on that price.
Furthermore, they aren't even prepared to replace the 520 with the 525 - going back to the end of Nov 2013, please note the arrogance of a spokesperson of Nokia, based here - they wouldn't even publish the name of the person ; well stuff them! They can keep their precious phones, if this is their attitude. I for one certainly won't be buying a phone from the Lumia range.
Quotes from article:
Nokia has no intention to bring the Nokia Lumia 525 to South Africa’s shores, a spokesperson for Nokia SA has told MyBroadband.
“The Nokia Lumia 520 is a key device for us locally and we are fully committed to driving its continued success along with our operator and retail partners well into 2014,” Nokia said.
What I think is that SA is a market they intend getting rid of excess stock of the 520 in, even though it's been successful around the world, especially Europe & South America from what I've read. They must have left-overs now the 525's been introduced, and have to get rid of them somewhere. As implied above, won't be supporting a phone-maker with that sort of vile underhandedness!
I like it. But I buy it. Because I lived in Vietnam. SO, I can buy it ? how is it of article.

WP is just more straight and says it!!
You have to remember that this phone isn't running on the Metro PCS network. It is running on T-Mobile's Network.
regs, 15 Jan 2014It's not a price. It just first payment of credit loan.Nope, its not on any contract. There are 2 android phones also for the same price.
So Microsoft will pay phone makers to make windows phones and to consumers to buy windows phones.
I guess the only option left for them to make some return,would be higher cut in App store purchases and phone adverts. Considering apple and google are already making a killing each year via this route, it doesn't seem a bad medium-long term strategy.
However, WP users should get ready for shelling out more on App purchases, if its indeed true.
boosook, 15 Jan 2014Microsoft will end up paying users to use to WP...Nice assumption. Where did they all come from?
