Microsoft's Lumia 530 goes on sale in India, pre-orders open in Europe

Last month, Microsoft announced the most affordable Nokia Windows Phone ever, the new entry-level Lumia 530. Since then, the company has been drumming up interest in the 530 with a series of videos showing off what the device can do

The new handset went on sale in its first market, Vietnam, earlier this month, and has now made its way to more parts of the world. As WPCentral reports, the Lumia 530 Dual SIM is now available to buy in India - on Flipkart, it can be purchased for 8,199 INR (€100 EUR / $134 USD), but over on Snapdeal, it's available for 10% less, priced at just 7349 INR (€90 / $120)

As WMPowerUser notes, the device is making its way to Europe too, as Amazon Italy is now accepting pre-orders for the low-cost handset, priced at €99.99 EUR for the single-SIM version. 

The Lumia 530 features a 4-inch LCD with FWVGA (854x480px) resolution, along with a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 chipset and 512MB, 4GB of storage and a 5MP rear camera.
