“With smartphones continuing to rise in popularity, there is a growing group of people who want a handset with all of the everyday smart essentials, but without the premium price tag,“ said Karel Holub, General Manager, Philippines, Microsoft Mobile Devices Sales. 

He added, “Whether you’re a first time smartphone user or just want more bang for your buck, Lumia 435 and Lumia 532 present a compelling option by providing everyday smart essentials for our more price conscious customers” said Holub.

The Lumia 435 is now available in GMA and should be avialable in the key provicial areas of the Philippines in the coming weeks. On the other hand, the Lumia 532 series will be exclusively available in Graphics’ Mindanao stores from March 20, 2015, and in key outlets within a couple of weeks.

The other good thing about it is the prices didn't jacked up too much compared to the older Nokia handsets that came here in the country. Good job Microsoft. I personally think that this can catch the attention of those who wanted to try Windows phone and could be a hit too.
