  1. I think Microsoft made the right decision by maintaining the Nokia brand name... Friends like how much do you think this phone could worth?

  2. The recently Nokia X cost around 20k so I expect the price range not to be too different

  3. Taking a look at the pix here, I'm not sure there would be any much difference between the Nokia X series and this new Lumia. How much?
