Nokia unveil mid-range low-cost phones at MWC

Nokia have shown off its new Nokia Lumia 720 and Nokia Lumia 520 mid-range low-cost Windows 8 phones at the MWC in Barcelona

Nokia has used its keynote presentation at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona to show off the Nokia Lumia 720 and Nokia Lumia 520, two mid-range, low-cost Windows 8 phones it hopes will reach "more people in more markets".

"The momentum behind Nokia is gathering pace," said Stephen Elop, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nokia. "The launches today reflect our commitment to broadening our devices and services portfolio to meet the demands of people and businesses around the globe."

The Nokia Lumia 720 comes equipped with a 4.3-inch display, 1.0 GHz dual-core processor, 512MB RAM and 8GB of storage. The Nokia Lumia 520 for its part has similar specs, but comes with a 4-inch display, and is easily Nokia's cheapest Windows 8 handset, priced at just €139 (around £122)

Along with the new Lumia handsets, Nokia launched a couple of new 'low-end handsets - the Nokia 105 and the Nokia 301. The former is pitched at first-time phone buyers and it offers internet, email, FM radio, a speaking clock and a flashlight. When it's released consumers can pick it up for just €15 (around £13). The 301 handset has a decent 3.5G connection and it comes preloaded with Nokia's Xpress browser.
