After instant rebate, the Microsoft Lumia 640 will be just $39 at MetroPCS
This morning, we told you that T-Mobile was selling the Microsoft Lumia 640 for $130 (or $5.41 a month over 24 months). But T-Mobile's pre-paid subsidiary, MetroPCS, might have a better deal to offer those hungering for the handset. One image from a leaked internal memo shows that the device is on the way, set to arrive at Metro stores tomorrow. The actual launch date is said to be June 22nd.

Another leaked image from a company memo shows that the Microsoft Lumia 640 will be priced at $129 for customers of the pre-paid carrier. But a $90 instant rebate means that you'll be paying $39 for the phone.

The Microsoft Lumia 640 features a 5-inch, 720 x 1280 resolution screen protected by Gorilla Glass 3. The pixel density works out to 294ppi and the device is driven by a Snapdragon 400 chipset. The latter contains a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU and the Adreno 305 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside with 8GB of internal storage. Need more memory? That is what the 128GB capacity microSD slot is for. A 2500mAh battery keeps the lights on and Windows Phone 8.1 is pre-installed along with the Lumia Denim firmware update.

Seems like a good deal for those who prefer to pre-pay for their wireless service. Either way, you most likely will be running your Lumia 640 over T-Mobile's network.

Next they will be standing out in the street begging people to take them. Better yet they will throw in a child from a third world country to go with that phone. Nah, I am just messing with you. They would never give a free child away, just the phone ;-)

Why do they do this kind of deal just for METRO customers when we all know it's the same network? Can't people just bring it over to TMO right away?

I think this is a plot against At&t. They are releasing their XL version the same day. Metro Lumia 640 $39. At&t Lumia 640 XL $250. It's better but not $211 better.
