Microsoft opens pre-orders for Nokia Lumia 635 in the US, asks $99 for AT&T's version, and $129 for T-Mobile's

Released earlier this month in Europe and Asia, the Nokia Lumia 635 is now available to pre-order in the US. At the moment, customers can find the handset only online via Microsoft Store, but that’s not a bad thing at all - because Microsoft lets customers pre-order AT&T’s Lumia 635 for only $99, and T-Mobile’s variant for $129. Both prices are available without contract, and are lower than the smartphone’s official recommended retail price ($189).

The Lumia 635 is the cheapest LTE-capable Windows Phone ever (and we included it in our list of best LTE smartphones under $300). It obviously runs the latest Windows Phone 8.1, while also featuring a 4.5-inch ClearBlack display with 480 x 854 pixels, 5MP rear camera, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, and 512MB of RAM. The smartphone comes with 8GB of expandable internal memory, plus 7GB of free storage space on OneDrive.

Microsoft says that the Lumia 635 “ships when available” - so for now it can’t provide an exact launch date. In any case, the handset should be launched starting the coming months. Customers will likely also find the new device in AT&T and T-Mobile stores. MetroPCS also announced that it would offer the Lumia 635 later this year.
