    Default Selfie lumia 730, 735 & the affordable flagship lumia 830 and also blu win jr

    Microsoft recently unveiled three mid range Windows Phones 8.1:


    This morning, Microsoft announced the budget-friendly 'selfie' phone aka the Lumia 730 (dual SIM) and Lumia 735 (4G LTE single SIM). Selling for around 200 Euro later this month, the follow up to the Lumia 720 looks to be an impressive and fun Windows Phone.

    Shipping with Lumia Denim and Windows Phone 8.1.1, the Lumia 730 features an impressive 5 MP front-facing camera in addition to a 6.7 MP rear camera with an ultra-low F/1.9 aperture. Our hands on video is coming up soon, but for now you can check out our photos!

    Microsoft announced the Lumia 830 at IFA 2014 in Berlin, Germany. The "affordable flagship" Lumia 830 puts a high-end camera into a smartphone that's easy on your wallet.

    Hold the Lumia 830, and you'll find yourself looking at a beautiful 5-inch 720p IPS display (1280 x 720). This display comes with some impressive technology like ClearBlack, Corning Gorilla Glass 3, Curved Glass and more. This all amounts to a display you'll be able to easily use outdoors in bright sunlight.

    The Lumia 830 itself is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and 1 GB of RAM. It comes with 16 GB of internal storage, which is supplemented with microSD card support up to 128 GB and 15 GB of OneDrive cloud storage.

    The big selling point of the Lumia 830 will be its PureView camera. You'll find a rear camera with a 10 MP sensor and optical image stabilization. ZEISS optics ensures you can capture photos like more expensive Lumia handsets. You also get Rich Recording thanks to three microphones. This is recording technology we've seen in high-end handsets like the Lumia 930.

    Full specs for the Lumia 830
    A removable battery, changeable shells and thin design roundup the specs of the Lumia 735. It'll come in orange, green, white and black at launch.

    Look for the Lumia 830 to launch globally in September 2014 at a price point of 330 ($433 USD).

    BLU launched its first Windows Phone, the $89 Win JR, last week, and now the manufacturer has posted first-look videos of the device along with its larger-screened sibling, the Win HD.

    Like the Win JR, the Win HD comes in four color variants. The device will cost $179 carrier-free, and will be available online at Amazon as well as retail Microsoft locations. In terms of specs, the Win HD comes with a 5-inch 720p display, 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 200 CPU, 8 MP camera, 2 MP shooter at the front, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory and microSD slot up to 32 GB along with Windows Phone 8.1.

    There are many more OEMs that are about to sell entry and mid levels WP 8.1 for the December quarter which bodes well for the OS.BLU Win Jr could do very well in Jamaica.

    Got a win Jr. The phone itself is ok but I have a few issues with the OS. Too much limitations. The phone has to be hacked to sideload apps. The apps look ancient although I did find a few interesting app (eg. Bing translator). Overall windows have a lot of catching up to do before they can really compete.
