Finally second generation Windows Phone devices are available in Sudan. The lineup includes such devices as the HTC Titan, the HTC Radar and the Nokia Lumia 800. Well, the first two devices are not novelties, therefore their launch in the region is not something surprising, but the launch of the Lumia 800 sounds a bit awkward.
Sadly for locals the handsets will cost rather high. The high price is due to the fact Sudan offers the handsets unlocked and unsubsidized.
The HTC Titan comes at 3125 Sudanese pounds (around $1170). Unlike the Titan, the HTC Radar is more affordable; it costs 1875 Sudanese pounds (around $700). And the Nokia Lumia 800 is offered for 2375 Sudanese pounds (around $890) — it will be available both in black and cyan.
All three handsets will be offered by Sudanese retail chain Gizmo, which actually sounds American. I wish the prices were less expensive, so that WP handsets were more affordable. Still I bet mainly those who can afford high-end smartphones will own one of these WP handsets.
