However the sale may start from 18th Feb 2016.  Lumia 650  Lumia 650 has all promising features and it fills the gap nicely between the new generation Windows 10 powered budget Lumia 550 and the flagship Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL.

Perhaps among the technology companies, it is Microsoft that has generated much interest and curiosity in the last few months ever since Windows 10 was released for personal computers on 29th July 2015. Many Microsoft/Windows fans have been actively participating in 'Windows Insider' program which is a 'first of its kind' involvement of fans particularly by the tech giant Microsoft.
