Microsoft Lumia 735 already discounted: now $29.99 at Verizon (on contract)
Available at Verizon Wireless since last week, the Microsoft Lumia 735 is a Windows Phone handset that was previously released in other markets as the Nokia Lumia 735. Initially, Verizon offered the smartphone for $79.99 on contract, but it has now lowered the price to just $29.99, obviously wanting more customers to consider getting the device. However, the off contract price hasn't been lowered, so it's still $192.

The Lumia 735 is a mid-range handset that sports a 4.7-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and has a 5 MP front-facing camera for wide-angle selfies. The smartphone is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor (definitely not among the newest chipsets around), further featuring: a 6.7 MP Carl Zeiss rear camera, LTE connectivity, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2200 mAh battery with wireless charging capabilities (charging pad sold separately). Currently running Windows Phone 8.1, the Lumia 735 will be updated to Windows 10 - possibly starting September.

Verizon's Lumia 735 can also be bought from Microsoft Store, where it costs $49.99 on contract, and comes bundled with free Nokia headphones. Is anyone interested?

kind of hard to fly off of the shelves when they aren't even on them.I went to two corporate locations, and the reps didn't know about the device. kind of a shame even from a consumer standpoint.

640XL still a better buy. $0.99 on contract pricing. $249 (full price). If MS ever decides to put something other than the SD400 in a phone, I'd probably try it out. 640XL with an SD615 would have been an instant buy.
