Microsoft is trying quite hard to get fully into the Indian market and try and figure out its overall dynamics in terms of sales figures and device popularity. And the best way to do that currently, it seems, is via the company's assorted range of Lumia-based devices.
Keeping up with its Lumia-oriented tradition, Microsoft, which recently acquired Nokia, has now brought out the brand new Windows Phone 8.1-powered Nokia Lumia 630 to keep pace in the market. Apparently, the device is the first dual SIM-supported Lumia device.
While fans already know quite a bit about the new device, alongside its highlighted features and specifications, GizBot recently had the opportunity to hear about the device directly from a Microsoft official and what the company hopes to achieve with it in the Indian market.
Viral Oza, Marketing Director, Nokia India, a subsidiary of Microsoft Mobile, was recently in an interview with GizBot where he revealed a bit more about the device than it has been usually said on the paper.
"From an experince point of view, it (Lumia 630) also comes with the entire suite of Windows services. So, (there's) 7GB of space on one drive, photographs automatically get backed up, comes with integrated skype, comes with Office."
He added that it's a great work and play device and that it's a great thing "to see and edit documents on the phone, and also play Xbox games."
"It has the Nokia camera with fantastic lenses that allows consumers to click great photographs and make them even better. So it has all of that also coming as a package. So if you think about it from an experince point of view, it has the best of Microsoft, the best of Lumia," he added.
As far as device price is concerned, Mr. Oza was pretty confident. "At this price point, the very latest is something that's not available to consumers," he said.
