Windows Phone 8 has definitely made an impact. It’s not for everybody, but it’s a great mobile phone OS and the Nokia/Microsoft is looking fruitful.
It’s also very easy to use – and that’s why we think the 4-inch Nokia Lumia 520 could do rather well, as a low budget handset for those who don’t want an over-complicated or over-equipped smartphone. Continue reading
