Nokia Lumia 520 Hands on Meeting & Review!

Nokia Lumia 520, was recently unveiled in India as the 'cheapest Windows Phone 8', along with Nokia Lumia 720. Well, the live tiles, vibrant colors: cyan, red, black, yellow and white, crisp display, makes it the most affordable WP8-powered smartphone.

Bloggers' Mind @ Nokia India did extend the invite to Bangalore Bloggers to experience the speed, on 5th April, at The Oberoi, Bangalore. Also, we were in for a Surprise.  Life is a series of surprises, that's what keeps it kicking & interesting!!!

Being a Nokia Windows Phone 8 device, you also get Nokia's built-in navigation apps, now renamed HERE Maps for general mapping and HERE Drive for turn-by-turn navigation. A huge advantage of both is their support for offline mapping. In Maps, for example, you just need to go to Offline Maps in the menu and select the maps you want to download to the phone's internal storage, which will save you any worry about getting lost in low signal areas or racking up huge data costs when abroad.
