Since the acquisition of Nokia, Microsoft is being very smooth and careful in replacing the Nokia Brand with its own. Microsoft did not make any sudden turns, instead it strategically started taking over the Brand name and replacing it with its own. In yet another smooth move to claim the remnant Nokia customers, Microsoft now offers to trade your old Nokia Asha mobiles for a brand new Lumia 435.
The Asha series was Nokia’s entry level smartphones with a OS of its own. It had its own bit of success but before it could mature, the Microsoft takeover happened. Now it is obsolete. If you still own a Asha device you would naturally want to move on to a better smartphone OS. At the similar price point of the Asha devices, there is no other alternative except the Lumia entry level mobiles.
So Microsoft offers a chance to upgrade to its brand new entry level Lumia mobile, the Lumia 435. Here is the offer details.
|Price of Lumia 435||Exchange offer||Price after Exchange|
|Asha 500, Asha 501, Asha 502 and Asha 503||5999||1500||4499|
|Asha 305, Asha 306, Asha 308, Asha 309, Asha 310 and Asha 311||5999||1000||4999|
Apart from the exchange offer, Paytm offers Rs 1250 cashback on recharges through the Paytm app on the mobile during the offer period. The offer is valid till 15th April 2015.
