If your budget is tight but you still want the new notifications and other stuff coming with Windows 10, Microsoft has your back -- depending on where you live. It just revealed the 4-inch Lumia 430 Dual SIM model that's Windows 10-ready for around 70 bucks. For such a price, you'll get about what you'd expect: a WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 CPU, 8GB of upgradeable storage and a 1,500 mAh battery. Unfortunately, the biggest compromise is with the cameras: it has a meager 2-megapixel front/0.3-megapixel shooters that will make for passable selfies and not much else.

As the name gives away, it also packs "intelligent" dual-SIMs and is only coming to regions where that feature is desirable; namely the Middle East, Asia-Pacific regions, Africa, Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus. That doesn't mean you're without cheap Windows Phone options in the the UK and North America, however. The Lumia 530, for instance, retails at $100-plus, but is available on the street as low as $40. There's also the new Lumia 640 and 640XL, though those go for around $100 more. Budget models aside, however, there's still no sign of a high-end Lumia model created by Microsoft without any help from Nokia.
