It will reportedly be a low-end phone for about $325 USD

Nokia is on the verge of releasing another Lumia, but this time, it'll be a low-end model with the largest screen the company has unveiled yet. 

Nokia will launch the Lumia 625 in the coming weeks, which is an effort to offer more affordable Windows Phones. The new phone will feature a 4.7-inch screen, which will make it one of the larger Lumia's to date. 

The Lumia 625 will also have a a dual-core 1.2GHz S4 processor, 512MB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera and a 800 x 480 (WVGA) resolution.


It's expected to launch at about $325 USD in a variety colors. However, a solid release date for the U.S. hasn't been announced yet. 

It's important for Nokia to release less-expensive models of its Lumia line so that it can reach many different people with different price points. 

A lot of the Lumia phones, such as the recently-announced Lumia 1020, are high-end devices that pack a ton of features for a steeper price. For instance, the 1020 -- which will have features like a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core, 2GB DRAM, LTE, NFC and a whopping second generation 41 MP, 1/1.5" sensor with 1.1 micron backside illuminated (BSI) pixels -- will run about $602 USD.

So I happen to like Microsoft products I guess that means I have some agenda or there is some conspiracy there because nobody can possibly like some of their products.

It must be a wide open market to make a better product than Microsoft you should go off and do it and bring them to chapter 11 and show them how its done.

Hating on Microsoft is so 90's but in the 90's they deserved it. Its not the 90's anymore.

"So I happen to like Microsoft products I guess that means I have some agenda or there is some conspiracy there because nobody can possibly like some of their products."

I like their products too, just not the few most recent ones... It's when you aggressively defend ALL of their products and every move they make no matter what that leads people to think you have an agenda, not that you like their products. I don't hate on MS, just point out what I don't like. I don't like the "our way or no way" direction they have taken lately with their products period. You seem to want to defend them taking away options, which is highly suspect to me. "No, we shouldnt have options, we should just eat it and like it"

I happen to like a lot of the Microsoft products right now and the things I don't like I can change. I dont see the need to obsessively complain about things that can be changed. Don't like the factory installed radio in your car you change it Microsoft is no different dont like the start menu change it. Heck I don't like IE and I use Firefox because its much better but IE is progressing. For a while I didn't like Firefox because of the darn memory leaks in it but they seem to have it under control now.

Of all the companies out there when a mistake is made Microsoft owns up to it. Sony, Apple, Adobe, NVIDIA, HP, RIM just all pretend were stupid and ignore or avoid owning up to any mistake. I recently started loving Lenovo but about 2 years ago I didnt. But their customer service has changed dramatically and they own up to mistakes and make good on them.

The XB1 had great ideas and Im glad they are bringing some back especially the steam like options because I love steam I just log into my laptop or desktop and load whatever game I own. I even put it on my kids pc and they will occasionally play a game no need to look for the disc. I will eventually have more than one XB1 and I dont mind buying the game without a disc and being able to install and run the game from any XB1 I log into its great for me. I like that model. I love steam sales I cant wait till the XB1 reaches that model. My family loves dance games on kinect at parties there is literally 10 kids and adults dancing with the players its a good time. Sure it doesn't work for every game but its fun.

Its not for everyone but it works for me and I think Microsoft is producing some of the best products they have ever done. My last OS install the only driver I went to look for was the Graphics card. Back in the day we all searched for drivers audio, network, etc you dont even need to use the mobo driver disc anymore. This is awesome.

No OS, Console, Phone etc is perfect but I certainly believe through experience that Microsoft is putting out great stuff. How can I say bad things about Windows Phone when in nearly 3 years its never frozen, hung, or needed to be rebooted especially when my wife is pulling the battery on her android monthly and getting the black screen of death? I heard about it every time she had to pull the battery how much she hated it and it was a so called device that everyone gave praise to because of the specs yet Ive been able to do everything her android was capable of doing without ever having to worry about pulling the battery.

That's not a valid argument. See what we mean? You just straight up refuse to acknowledge that Windows 8 was and still is a conceptually flawed OS for a desktop PC. It's a mobile touchscreen-centric UI married to mouse and keyboard systems.

The fact that you can essentially hack the OS with third party programs not supported by Microsoft in an attempt to remedy the flaw, doesn't mean the flaw doesn't exist. It's there. Admit it!

Uhh sorry professor but that's not education. A flaw is something that is implemented poorly/incorrectly.

It doesn't have to prevent me from doing something...

Nope. Windows 8 is objectively flawed as a desktop OS compared to Windows 7. Fact!

Serious question. Have you ever used Windows Phone for a length of time?

As much as you appear to announce your hatred for Windows Phone and Windows 8, your comments are always everywhere to be found in related articles.

What is with your constant urge to put the platform down? It's evident that you're a big fan of Google, but just because other peoples' tastes differ to yours, that doesn't make them wrong.

Or do you have a secret love for Windows Phone? ;)
