Microsoft Launches First Non-Nokia Smartphone Lumia 535Microsoft

Lumia 535 has become very popular for several reasons and the most significant reason among them is that it is the first Lumia handset minus Nokia. Officially unveiled on 11 November, this phone is yet to hit the Indian stores.

Apparently, Microsoft has started sending invites for the launch event scheduled for next week and is expected to happen on 26 November.

The invites sent by Microsoft carries a puzzle like quote saying "Five Days to Magic of Triple 5." The Lumia 535 phone carries a 5x5x5 proposition, with a 5-inch qHD screen and 5MP front and 5MP rear camera on board.

The latest Lumia device carries a Microsoft logo instead of Nokia on the top-front and middle of the back.

The Lumia 535 is a dual SIM Windows phone, which is expected to arrive in an affordable range. With an ability to make Skype video calls and seamlessly switch between voice and video with built-in Skype integration, the Microsoft device can also access, edit and share Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents and OneNote notebooks wherever you are, with the pre-installed Office suite.

The US giant also features 15GB of free OneDrive cloud storage with Lumia 535 for saving and syncing multimedia and office contents.

Available in bright green, bright orange, white, dark grey, cyan and black, Lumia 535 Dual SIM is expected to arrive at an estimated retail price of ₹8,450 (110 Euro) approximately.

Nokia has recently hinted to come back again in the consumer market by launching their first ever Android based tablet N1 last week.
