Short Bytes: As a result of an incorrect listing online, Lumia 520 phone was being sold at a price of $8 million on Walmart. Now the mistake has been corrected and it’s selling at a regular price. Read more to know how this happened.
But, mistakes happen and blunders are unavoidable. After forcing the Windows 7 users to download Windows 10 (and apologizing), Microsoft accidentally listed the Lumia 520 smartphone for $7,989,112.50 i.e. almost $8 million.
This price is ten thousand the price of a brand new iPhone 6S. With features of a modest 5-megapixel camera, 512MB RAM and a 1,430mAh battery, this $8 million deal doesn’t sound much enthusiastic.
Around the launch of Lumia 520, Ferrari launched the LaFerrari, a great piece of mechanical muscle with a price $1 million. Compared to this beauty, once again Microsoft fails to impress with its $8 million Lumia 520 phone.
Well, this price listing was obviously a mistake and it has been corrected. If you visit the Walmart website, it tells that Lumia 520 costs between $79.89 and $112.50. This listing was incorrectly formatted, that resulted in $7,989,112.50 price.
