Microsoft India sends out media invites for May 12; Lumia 630 launch likely

The Windows Phone 8.1 devices might hit Indian shores soon! We’ve received an invite for a media event in New Delhi on May 12, 2014. While the invite comes via Nokia’s long-standing agency, the invite bears a Microsoft logo, implying the new hosts.

Incidentally, Nokia India has also listed Lumia 630 (both single SIM and dual SIM variants) and Lumia 930 on the website recently. Announced at the Build conference in April this year, just before the acquisition of Nokia’s devices business finished, these devices are Nokia’s first series of Windows Phone 8.1 devices.

One, this could just be a showcase event and a later availability may be announced. Nokia recently did a media event for Nokia XL where the product was showcased but no availability or price was announced. Yeah, funny, I know.

Second, while I know from sources that this is a Lumia 630 event, I’m not too sure if the Lumia 930 would be showcased/launched as well.

Anyway, we’ll be there at the event, and will get you all the dope on Monday. Stay tuned!

Winnabe says:

I'd say medical ? Or non-med ? I have my IIT entrance !! :))

S Vaibhav says:

Wow, you study at IIT?! Awesome! What was your rank in JEE?

No man !! I'm hoping to get into iit, its on 25th :-P am expecting a top 50 rank btw :-P so i should get Bombay csc (really want that, its the aim of my life :-P)
Till now sirf aieee/jee mains ka result has been declared, I'm Punjab topper in that..

S Vaibhav says:

Congrats! Hope you get ur seat. I am studying for the AIIMS exam which is on June 1, hope I get through ;) By the way when are the board results coming?

Thanks ! :) same for you, do well ! :) i have some dear friends too in med here.. How was your pmt ?
And boards results coming on 26-27th may, rumoured.. Read on the internet.

S Vaibhav says:

Thanks, PMT went well. How much are you expecting in board? :-o

Something like 97%.. Maths and computer, i should get full, for chem also i can hope for full. Messed up physics a bit so about 95-97, English 92-94 :-P

S Vaibhav says:

Wow, that's....., superb dedication bro! Hope I met you someday as a great personality LOL :D By the way is VIT good for engineering(bio tech)? I got 11,120 in the VIT entrance, what about you?

Many of my friends here did give VIT, but i didn't.. Actually i cant survive in south India, probably that's why :D i hate south indian food :))
It is a good college for engineering, especially for south Indians. Anyway, if you can get a med seat, then i think that's great enough ;) otherwise, yes its a good option as far as i know :)
And btw, i dont know how i do it, but i do get marks somehow :)) more to do with concepts.. Got them really strong :) my marks dont matter even, I'm still a normal guy, techie, fun loving, friendly, talkative.. Not that big a nerd as my marks make me seem :)) still.. A little nerdy.. Its necessary for studies.. ;)
Anyway, best of luck for all your remaining entrance tests ! :)

mpt15 says:

I want a mid range phone! I want to replace my Lumia 800.

Any rumours if upcoming devices? Release dates?

S Vaibhav says:

Buy the Lumia 720/925/1520, these are the best devices in India imo.

mpt15 says:

But I was going for a new release in the 8xx range. Will hold out a couple of months and if there's nothing new, I'll get the 925

8XL will sound good as successor of 8X.. Lol

And when lumia cyan would be available?

I'd say June start for 920, 1020, 1520, and june mid for 520, and june mid, 2015 for 620 :-P

Guys what's expected btw ? About 930 launch ? I really want it to be available latest by first week of June.. What are the odds ?
