Lumia 530 smartphone expected to roll out in August

The Microsoft Devices Group announced Wednesday the August rollout of the Lumia 530, an entry-level device for Windows Phone that delivers the latest Microsoft and Lumia innovations.

The Lumia 530 will expand the reach of Windows Phone as the first Lumia introduced below 100 euros (at 85 euros, or about $114) and makes it easy to switch between two SIM cards. It also includes the latest version of Windows Phone 8.1, with Action Center and the Word Flow keyboard.

Powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the Lumia 530 shows that it doesn’t skimp on features despite its price tag. It comes with a 4-inch LCD display, Skype and Microsoft Office and 4GB of on-board memory, expandable with SD cards up to 128GB. If that’s not enough, users can have an additional 15GB of free cloud storage on Microsoft OneDrive that lets people sync, store, access and share files between Lumia 530 and computers, laptops and tablets.
