Nokia India today sent out invites to the press for their launch of Lumia 1020 in India. The event will happen on Sep-26th (this Thursday) in New Delhi. Last month, Nokia launched their Lumia 925 WP8 device along with their mid-range device Lumia 625. Lumia 1020 launch in India is earlier than expected and I guess it will be in the retail stores starting from first week of October.
The main thing that Nokia should focus on Lumia 1020 launch in India is their pricing. Recently, Sony launched their Xperia Z1 flagship for Rs.43,000, LG launched their G2 flagship for Rs.40,000, Samsung is already selling Galaxy S4 for Rs.38,199. Nokia Lumia 1020 is inferior to all these devices in terms of raw specs except the camera. If Nokia lists the device for more than Rs.40,000, I think it would be suicidal. What do you think?
