Microsoft has cost very tough, that is left of Nokia. Of 18,000 employees of the corporation, which to be reduced the end of the year, 12,500 are former employees of Nokia. In addition, the new owner closed the project Nokia X, and with it will go under the knife and series phones Asha. And it’s a bit strange, because the demand for low cost mobile phones is still here.
One of the designers tried to find a compromise, he introduced the concept of a smartphone called the Nokia Lumia 330. Work absorbed all the hallmarks of the device series Asha, Nokia X and budget Lumia. It is assumed that the price tag on the Lumia 330 does not exceed the level of 30 dollars, for these money the buyer gets a smartphone with a screen diagonal of 500×240 pixels at hardly more than 3.5 inches.
On board budget smartphone are the front and rear camera, a modest, but not the weak processor and RAM module is not more than 512 MB. At the lower end of the body, we see a micro USB port and 3.5mm jack for headphones. And on the back cover is a fairly large speaker grille, presumably, it produces a very loud sound. It is a pity, that Nokia not plans anything like Lumia 330.
