Finnish phone maker has taken the wraps off of Nokia Lumia 620.
Marko Ahtisaaari, The Exec VP of Design at Nokia was speaking at the LeWeb conference when he unveiled the cheaper and smaller hand set – which is such a rarity.

Ahtisaari said “We knew there was space in the portfolio for something more compact, something that fit beautifully in the palm of the hand. But something that still had the camera, a solid camera, and the signature apps that Nokia is noted for. And as well we wanted something that would take our pure color story and just give it a burst of playfulness — mix it up a little bit.”
This device also comes with NFC for linking up with accessories such as speakers, an “especially loud speaker” on the back of the phone, a “very fast” five megapixel camera.
According to Ahtisaari, the phone will cost $249 (before taxes) and will ship in January, to Asia-Pac, Middle East and Africa first, with Europe and Canada following after that.
