Microsoft Lumia 550 now available in the US and India
Announced earlier this year, at the same time with the high-end Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, the Lumia 550 is far from being a top of the line device, but it's still notable for being one of Microsoft's first smartphones to run Windows 10 out of the box.

Although Microsoft recently started selling the Lumia 550 in some markets around the world, it didn't officially release it in North America. Still, folks in the US can now buy the handset from B&H Photo Video, in either black, or white, for $149.99 (unlocked). Mind you, B&H says that this is the US version of the Lumia 550, so it should be compatible with the LTE networks of AT&T and T-Mobile. In addition to being available in the US, the Microsoft Lumia 550 was also released this week in India, where customers can purchase it for around $140 via Indiatimes Shopping and Amazon.

Besides Windows 10, the Microsoft Lumia 550 offers a 4.7-inch 720p display, a 5 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera, and a 2100 mAh battery. Powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, the handset also features 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, and microSD card support.
