The Nokia Lumia 530 drops in on @Meteor_Mobile for €99.99 #Nokia #Microsoft by @jimboireland #WP

The Nokia Lumia 530 drops in on @Meteor_Mobile for €99.99 #Nokia #Microsoft by @jimboireland #WP

The Nokia Lumia 530 is now officially live on the Meteor website,although announced last week by Nokia Ireland it has now finally appeared on the site.

The 530 is the latest device from Microsoft and its the entry level variant in the Lumia portfolio.

Priced at €99 it does come in the bracket as its rival model the 630 and slightly over the older Lumia 520..



The 530 is priced from Free up  on contract here is the options below.



You can check out the 530 at Meteor 

Thanks to Ross once again for the tip..

Pricing for the Nokia Lumia 735/830 appears on #Microsoft by @jimboireland #Nokia #Ireland.

Pricing for the Nokia Lumia 735/830 appears on #Microsoft by @jimboireland #Nokia #Ireland.

The latest Nokia devices from Microsoft mobile have finally appeared close to home giving us some indication as to what we can expect to pay,these are sim free prices which are typically higher than locked devices purchased from a store.

Keeping this in mind there is still little news on who will carry both devices,we know vodafone will carry the 830 and meteor and emobile have said no to the 730 and 830,this may change over time and i can also see the new iphone been pushed very aggressively,this will sure fire up the competition. have now given us prices of both devices,there is nothing on the 730 just yet this is the dual sim version of the 730,this is also advertised on the microsoft store but no sign of the 730,could operators now be interested in dual sim phones ? Up until late they never had interest but maybe things are changing.




The 735 seems to be priced higher than what we have seen suggested already which is around €249 for the 730 take into account this is dual sim..





The 830 again is higher priced that recent prices we have seen,averaging around the €350 mark,The 830 is slated as an affordable flagship so it would need to be lower than this to have any effect on interest as the 930 currently sells for €429 and this is locked but its still cheap..7

Expansys have always been slightly higher with sim free devices in most cases but they offer a decent service to be fair,on top of these prices there is of course shipping charges..

BARGAIN ALERT. #Nokia Lumia 820 sale at @CarphoneIE  #Nokia by @jimboireland #Lumia #CPW

Fancy a bargain,well the Carphone Warehouse has some specials on now with the Nokia Lumia 820,they are outdated now so to speak but these devices can have the latest firmware (CYAN) and would make do for a pretty good second,or spare device to have just in case you ever need it.They are still a modern phone.

The Lumia 820 was launched in 2012 but many today still use them and they are a good device,robust and sturdy and have sd expansion which is a must have for some people.


The Lumia 820 will cost you €249.99 in Yellow with O2 and the Lumia 820 in Black is on €149.99,this is not to be sniffed at by any means,just to note the devices are most likely locked to the respective networks..Big gap between the two prices so you decide.
