Nokia Lumia 520 and 720 available for pre-order

Nokia announced the addition of two new devices, the Lumia 520 and 720, to its flagship Lumia smartphone line-up earlier this week at the MWC 2013. Both handsets are now available for pre-order via online retailers Expansys and Clove.

Clove has announced that both the smartphones will be available from 1 April. The higher spec Lumia 720 will be cost somewhere around £300 (including VAT) and will be available in black. The more affordable Lumia 520 will be priced at approximately £170 (including VAT) and will be available in black or white. The retailer also said the full amount will be charged to buyers' debit or credit cards once the price is confirmed by Nokia.

Expansys, on the other hand, has made both devices available for pre-order, but has not confirmed their pricing.

When the handsets were first announced, Nokia said they would launch in Asia towards the end of March, after which they would become available in other markets.
