Almost as soon as Microsoft and Nokia finished unveiling the Nokia Lumia 635, T-Mobile announced that it would be offering up the mid-range, LTE, Windows 8.1 device on its own branded network and on MetroPCS. The device features a 4.5″ ClearBlack display and a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor. It’ll be available in five different colors, but if you get bored, changing it as easy as buying a new rear shell in a different hue. It’ll also be the first device launched globally with Windows 8.1 and will feature the newly announced Cortana digital assistant.
An uncompromised Windows Phone 8.1 experience with fast quad core processor, bright colorful design with changeable shells and 4.5″ ClearBlack screen.
Lightning-fast 4G LTE makes it quicker and easier to connect with the people and things you love online.
The same apps and experiences as high end Lumia’s including free Global maps and navigation, free Nokia MixRadio streaming, and Nokia Camera.
Live Tiles for instant information from apps, one easy swipe to important notifications with Action Centre, Microsoft Office, OneDrive, and faster ways to connect with Word Flow and Whatsapp and Instagram
A more personal and proactive assistant with Cortana
Nokia announced that the pricing would be around $189. T-Mobile is yet to announced an official release date, or pricing. But it will be available at some point this summer. T-Mobile expects the 635 to be even more popular than its predecessor on the Magenta-flavored network, the Lumia 521.
“The Un-carrier’s all about removing crazy restrictions and delivering total wireless freedom and flexibility,” said Jason Young, senior vice president of Marketing at T-Mobile. “With Windows Phone, we can offer customers another great choice in mobile platforms. And we’re excited to bring to both T-Mobile and MetroPCS customers the combination of next-gen software, great features and fresh design that Nokia’s latest Windows Phone has to offer.”
