Microsoft Lumia 735 now available from Verizon, 1 year of free Office 365 Personal included
Starting today, customers in the US can buy the Microsoft Lumia 735 from Verizon Wireless (the only carrier that's selling the handset in North America). Previously released in Europe as the Nokia Lumia 735, the smartphone was rebranded, and is now a Microsoft device.

Far from being a high-end smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 735 is offered by Verizon for $79.99 with a 2-year contract, $192 off contract, or for 24 monthly payments of $8 on Verizon's Edge plan. Those who are buying the 735 before July 31 will get a free 1-year Office 365 Personal subscription. Although Verizon is showing multiple color variants of the Lumia 735 on its website, for now you can order only the black version of the phone.

Sporting a 4.7-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, the Lumia 735 features LTE connectivity, a 5 MP front-facing camera, a 6.7 MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics, and a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor. It's also got 16 GB of expandable storage space, 1 GB of RAM, and a 2200 mAh battery.

The Microsoft Lumia 735 runs Windows Phone 8.1, and, like all other WP 8.1 handsets out there, it will be updated to Windows 10 starting later this year. So, is anyone here planning to buy the Lumia 735?
