Starting tomorrow, Amazon U.K. will sell you the Microsoft Lumia 535 for $147
Back in November, we told you that the Microsoft Lumia 535 would be touching down in the U.K. Starting tomorrow, the entry-level Windows Phone model will be available in black from Amazon U.K. for a price equivalent to $147 USD. For that price, buyers get to experience Windows Phone 8.1, which includes personal assistant Cortana.

The Microsoft Lumia 535 is equipped with a 5-inch screen offering resolution of 540 x 960. As you might expect, that works out to a rather lowly 220ppi pixel density. A quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 CPU is under the hood while 1GB of RAM is inside. With only 8GB of native storage, odds are that you will need to employ the 128GB capacity microSD slot on board. Both back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 5MP, and a 1905mAh battery keeps the lights on. This would make a great first smartphone for the person making that leap from a featurephone.

Last month, we told you that some Lumia 535 users were having problems with the sensitivity of the touchscreen. That issue has since been corrected thanks to a software update sent out by Microsoft.
