BLU launches its first Windows Phone 8.1 handset, the Win JR, to compete with the Lumia 530
Called BLU Win JR, the new handset can be bought via Microsoft Store and Amazon. Interestingly, while Amazon is selling the phone for $89, you have to pay $10 more - $99 - if you’re getting it from Microsoft Store. Both prices are for an unlocked unit.
BLU is positioning the Win JR as a Lumia 530 competitor, and points out that its handset offers a few more advanced features, including a VGA front-facing camera, a 5 MP rear camera with autofocus and 720p video recording, and a 1950 mAh battery. That aside, the BLU Win JR comes with a 4-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels, HSPA, 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor, 512 MB of RAM, and 4 GB of internal memory (these are features that the Lumia 530 is also offering).
