Elop Lumia 630

After we had reported that Microsoft-owned Nokia was offering the Lumia 630 up for sale in Asia, it looks like the smartphone is also now available in Russia. Additionally, it looks like the flagship Lumia 930 is also available for pre-order.

The Lumia 630 will be available in Russia in two variants. Starting today, a single-SIM variant will be available for 7990 rubles while a dual-SIM variant will be available over the next few days for 8490 rubles. The phone was made available for pre-order early last month. You can order from this link at the N-Store.

The Lumia 930, which is similar to the Nokia Lumia Icon in the U.S. with carrier Verizon Wireless, will be available for 24990 rubles when it launches. Users can start pre-ordering the phone today as well according to Russian language site WP7 Forums. You can click here to pre-order from the N-Store.

Both the Lumia 630 and the Lumia 930 are among the first smartphones to debut out of the box with Microsoft's Windows Phone 8.1 operating system.

Hopefully Putin will give WP favor over all OS in Russia.

Frank_Yang says:

Does it has any critical difference with icon?

myrandex says:

Superior radio selection and different color choices at the very least.

zicoz says:

radio selection?

ap3rus says:

Yes, like with support of various LTE types.

MikeSo says:

No. Supposedly I THINK there was the possibility of Glance on it down the road, but I don't remember for sure. I might remember wrong.

Hoekie says:

And double tap to unlock

MikeSo says:

I really wish my Icon had that.

chix chix says:

Double tap is so cool feature 


Judge_Daniel says:

I'm very interested in how Xbox Music runs on these devices. I hope WPC can get their hands on some to test out how 8.1 handles out of the box.

rockstarzzz says:

Nothing different to what we have right now on 8.1

Judge_Daniel says:

But we all have firmware optimized for Windows 8.0, not 8.1.

Eddie_Lomax says:

Actually that's something that General Alexander Lebed noted that after the fall of communism, the same people were still around running things...

AV2RY says:

In few months it's price will drop as always for all WP phones. Then maybe I'll get it. Right now happy with my 928

When?? +1520

milfermon says:

I don't really expect the 630 to sell well over there, but then again it wouldn't be the 1st time the Russians surprise me if it did sell well

msirapian says:

BTW, the 630 is launched in France too, my father should get his today

Alovchin says:

Russia has always been one of the key markets for Nokia. Hopefully Microsoft won't forget it. We still don't have Surface 2 in Russia.

In Russia Nokia gift you DT-601 for preorder! So nice, but I'll stay on my 920

DSWNG says:

Finally! Prices in Russia are higher than in Europe, but at least preorder for 930 is finally opened! Reserving one for myself right now!

MrDaedra says:

Lol, they've always been higher due to taxes. Watch TV more, dude.

sdharwadkar says:

What will be the price of Nokia Lumia 930 in India and when will be launched in India?

Duduosf says:
