One response to “Microsoft Reaffirms Commitment To Basic Phones. Announces Nokia 130”

    It seems that by killing Series 40, Microsoft spared Series 30. It sounds like Windows Phone 8 on the Snapdragon 200 is their Series 40 replacement… but I’m surprised, as 200 chips only rival Series 40 phone prices in US/UK where the prepaid carriers subsidize the device costs.

    By killing Series 40 and sparing Series 30, Microsoft has left quite a gap with the $50 to $100 phone market (again, outside the USA where Windows does fill that audience).

    It’ll be really interesting to see if these Series 30 devices get Skype working well, and other MS services.
