The Nokia Lumia 530, the company's latest attempt at a high-volume affordable smartphone, has started its journey around the stores around the world. The smartphone has gone on sale in its first market today as its dual SIM version launched in Malaysia.
The dual SIM Nokia Lumia 530 has gone on sale for MYR 355, which translates to about $110 and is close to what the company promised back at the announcement. If anything the price is slightly lower than the $115 pre-tax cost that Nokia estimated last month.
