A smart­phone for less than R1K

CityPress - - T# -

The R999 dual-SIM Mi­crosoft Lu­mia 430, launched in South Africa this past week, has fi­nally de­liv­ered on the prom­ise Mi­crosoft made when it ac­quired Nokia in 2013. At the time, Mi­crosoft com­mit­ted to tak­ing the man­u­fac­tur­ing qual­ity of Nokia and team­ing it with the tech in­no­va­tion Mi­crosoft is known for.

The new Lu­mia takes the tech pow­er­house’s prom­ise to the peo­ple, with pre­mium Mi­crosoft soft­ware housed in re­ally de­cent, af­ford­able hard­ware. And it looks to be a lot of phone for a rea­son­able price. The Lu­mia 430 comes with a 4-inch screen, 1.2GHz du­al­core pro­ces­sor, 1GB of RAM, a 2-megapixel main cam­era, 0.3-megapixel front cam­era and 8GB of stor­age. It’s great to see more en­trylevel smartphones en­ter­ing the mar­ket, mak­ing bet­ter phones more ac­ces­si­ble. – Gar­reth van Niek­erk Visit mi­crosoft.com for
