Another knock out for Microsoft’s Entry Level Lumias with the New Lumia 540

| April 15, 2015 | 2 Replies

The 5xx series is a great line up for Lumia. The 520 becoming one of the best selling Windows devices was followed up with a rather compromise packed Lumia 530.

What’s this about. Nokia’s direction was pulled quite strongly in the direction of mapping. Part of the reasons to focus away from Android initially was so their own mapping solutions could be used instead of google’s. Bloomberg reported on some rumours that they might sell their mapping business. Navteq was originally bought for 8 billion. […]
