Nokia recently released the entry level Lumia 620 Windows 8 phone to international markets, that ends up being around $236, about half the price of an unlocked iPhone 4. It's getting rave reviews too. I think this phone could Windows Phone back in the game (and kickstart it's own app ecosystem) with Apple absent from this price segment and Android phones in the same segment being subpar. Something to keep an eye on.

What's more, it's arguably more attractive than most Google-powered phones around the same price point and could prove to be a huge hit among smartphone beginners. There's also a good chance that the more-gadget obsessed might pick up the Lumia 620 as a second device to give Microsoft's mobile OS a try -- and with compatibility on two US networks, it might be worth an import. It delivers real-world performance as good as Windows Phones that cost more than double. If anything, it's making us reconsider whether those other rivals are worth the extra outlay.
