Moto E is available here for only 6999 INR. Which is the best deal you can find for a branded phone. Lumia 525 has a serious competition now. And Moto E is a dual sim phone with good processor and screen than Lumia 525. MS needs to radically drop the price of Lumia 525 if it wants to remain in market. And make a dual sim variant of Lumia 525, 630 with 512 mb RAM is not enough.

If they do a 2nd batch of these like some rumor says, they should tweak the UI even more and make it look more like WP8.1, it's close but not quite.

Otherwise just push the 530 and 630 lower price wise and drop these later on.

Viral Oza is going to have a tough time to market this against innumerable cheap Android phones flooding the Indian markets.

What if the One Plus, One phone comes out in such a market? Wouldn't that be a flagship REALLY worth its weight considering they are selling them at cost? What chance would the cheapos stand knowing they can get a flagship for 1/3 the cost more hypothetically speaking.
