With Microsoft officially unveiling Windows Phone 8.1, you know they needed a phone to go with it. That would be the Nokia Lumia 635, and it’s the people’s phone – a perfectly serviceable, affordable mid-range successor to the Nokia Lumia 521.
The Lumia 635 will have a quad-core Snapdragon processor and a 4.5” display, although Nokia didn’t mention hard specs. We do know that the phone will be LTE-compatible. They have made it clear that the Lumia 635 will be the first Windows 8.1 phone to come to market this year, with the Lumia 930, planned as the flagship offering, following later.
You’ll be able to get the Nokia Lumia 635 this summer through AT&T, T-Mobile, and MetroPCS. None of those telecoms have released specific pricing or availability details yet.
