Microsoft starts selling the Lumia 535 in the US
Announced last November as the first Lumia to drop the Nokia brand, the Microsoft Lumia 535 is now finally available to buy from Microsoft in the US. Previously, the smartphone was sold Stateside only via a few third-party retailers.

Microsoft is asking $149 for an unlocked Lumia 535, free shipping and free returns included.

The Lumia 535 offers a full Windows Phone 8.1 experience (including Cortana, Office, Skype, and so on), but it's far from being a high-end device. The handset sports a 5-inch display with 540 x 960 pixels and a pretty low 220 ppi density, and is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor. There are two 5 MP cameras, one on the back (with flash), and one on the front (without flash). The 535 also offers 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage space, and a 1905 mAh battery.

Obviously, the Lumia 535 will be updated to Windows 10 sometime later this year. You'll find out more about the device if you check out our Microsoft Lumia 535 review.

Agreed. They're all too similar. Definitely looking forward to when Microsoft releases the high-end hardware with Windows 10 for Mobile.
