Nokia brings #smokedbyWindowsPhone to Pakistan


Its only a few days ago that the Nokia Lumia range came to Pakistan, and it seems with the introduction of the handsets the inevitable Smoked by Windows Phone contest also followed.

Nokia has been running the Nokia Lumia Challenge in Dolmen Mall, Karachi, offering those who think they are faster than a Nokia Windows Phone Rs 1000 (around $10) to demonstrate it.

The Nokia Lumia 710, Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 900 have been priced at Rs26,000, Rs40,000 and Rs52,000 respectively.

Pushing Nokia’s Windows Phones into areas where the company has been traditionally strong will do a lot to support their Q3 2012 sales, which is expected to be a low point before the introduction of Windows Phone 8 handsets in Q4 2012.

Thanks Umair for the tip.
