Being a part of the Nokia Lumia lineup, the 620 has access to the exclusive Nokia Drive app, which provides free lifetime voice-guided navigation and offline access. The Nokia Music no log-in streaming service is also available. The smartphone will be relying heavily on those to help it in its battle with theHTC Windows Phone 8S, which has very similar hardware.
The Nokia Lumia 620 comes with the usual for WP8 smartphones set of connectivity options - Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, GPS, 2G and 3G with HSDPA support. There's no LTE here, but given the handset's mid-range status, that was to be expected.
The Nokia Lumia 620 will be available in a range of colors including, lime green, orange, magenta, yellow, cyan, white and black. It's estimated to cost $249, excluding taxes and subsidies and will begin selling in January 2013 in Asia, followed closely by Europe and the Middle East before expanding further.
