Nokia believes that you shouldn’t have to pay top dollar to enjoy some of the latest smartphone technology, so on Monday the company introduced two new Lumia handsets that deliver higher-end features at lower prices. The first of the devices is the Lumia 720. Priced at around $329 before taxes and carrier discounts, the Windows Phone 8 handset is designed for those looking for a quality cameraphone. It has a 6.7-megapixel camera on back that incorporates technology to help take better pictures during the day and night. Meanwhile, the front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera delivers HD-quality images and has a wide-angle lens. It’s also the first Lumia device to offer a microSD expansion slot. Other features include a 4.3-inch, 800 by 480 pixel touchscreen, a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and NFC technology.
