Microsoft Lumia 640 now available through T-Mobile for $130
A leaked internal memo suggested that T-Mobile would begin carrying Microsoft's budget Lumia 640 smartphone from June 17th, and so it has proved. The handset can be snapped up through T-Mo for the price of $130, or $5.41 per month over a 24-month contract. 

The Windows Phone handset is great value for its low price, and seems a very clear attempt by Microsoft to push more consumers in the direction of its mobile platform. WP is, after all, still a considerable way off iOS and Android in terms of reach as Redmond looks ahead to Windows 10. But the Office maker will be hoping that devices like the 640 and its partner-in-crime, the 640 XL, help to boost uptake and enrich its ecosystem. 

The Lumia 640 includes a 5-inch, 720 x 1280 LCD display, equating to a very respectable 294 pixels per-inch. Under the hood, you get a quad-core, 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC, 1 GB of RAM and 8 gigs of on-board storage. That's not a lot of default real estate, but if you do need more, there's a microSD slot that can read cards of up to 128 GB.

Camera-wise, you get an 8-megapixel shooter to the rear, and a 1-megapixel effort on the front. There's 4G LTE support for speedy cellular connectivity, and the entire operation is kept ticking over by means of the 2500 mAh battery. 

So, if you've been waiting for the Lumia 640 on T-Mo, hit the source link below, and if you'd like to know more about this affordable handset, be sure to check out our Lumia 640 review

$130 for a locked phone with hotspot crippled? No thanks.

FU T-Mobile.. They are again treating WP like a red headed step child. The 640 is ONLY available online. Thier excuse is mid and high range WindowsPhones don't sell. Well HTF can they if they dont sell them in the stores. !!!! They did this to the HTC M8 One, the last good WP phone they had was the 925 and that was over a year ago.
