Nokia Lumia 830, Microsoft’s new affordable Windows flagship smartphone

Fans of Microsoft’s Windows Phone mobile platform can be forgiven for feeling left out with the glut of new smartphone releases every fall. New iPhones, BlackBerries and Android phones are commonplace, but Windows? A little tougher to come by.

Sometimes a return to basics gives you enough features that you can forgo the more expensive models out there.
