The Nokia Lumia 830 is available for purchase at a price of Rs. 28,799 in Bright Orange, White and Black color options.
Nokia Lumia 830 will come with an additional 1 Terabyte of cloud storage on OneDrive, free for the first 6 months and chargeable thereafter at a price of Rs.125/- per month which is an attractive pricing option.
Nokia also announced a couple of accessories for the Lumia 830 like Nokia Smart Wireless Charger for charging sans cables and Treasure Tag WS-10 to keep track of your valuable possessions.
The Microsoft Screen-Sharing for Lumia Phones HD-10 lets people beam any content from their smartphone to an HDMI enabled screen. It is powered by NFC and will be
available in India in last week of October for Rs. 5,999.
Nokia Lumia 830 comes off as a rather peculiar package, the camera technology is one of the best among the industry and build quality is also top notch. There’s nothing to hate about the Nokia Lumia 830. It is one of the very few devices that can claim that title. Pricing could use a little help though considering the fact that Android competitors are catching up to provide a seamless user experience like Nokia does.
