The Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000 category was once ruled by Nokia, but off late players like Motorola, Xiaomi as well as Asus have been the big hitters in that price range. Microsoft realizes that the best way to penetrate the South Eastern Asian market is by tapping into the budget category and with the prowess of Nokia, which is an expert at it, the Redmond-based company is making solid moves forward.
