T-Mobile is the first in the U.S. with the Windows Phone 8.1 powered Nokia Lumia 635

Starting July 18th, the Nokia Lumia 635 will be available at MetroPCS stores and via its website, offered at a promotional price of $99. Two days earlier, the phone will be on the shelves at T-Mobile, at the same price. The carrier says that the model is the sequel to the extremely popular Nokia Lumia 521. T-Mobile customers with the Lumia 521 and the Nokia Lumia 925 will have their phones updated to Windows Phone 8.1 via an OTA update later this year.
With Windows Phone 8.1 pre-installed on the Nokia Lumia 635, buyers of the handset will get to experience personal assistant Cortana along with the new Action Center, which shows activities and notifications. And the Lumia 635 is pre-loaded with the apps you want, like Microsoft Office, Skype and OneDrive.

Read this on tmonews hours ago. If you're planning on buying the 635, wait a few days and buy it from MetroPCS as it'll be cheaper.

Yeah, at $99 it's worth it. $168 on T-Mobile is a bit too much though.

Just heard on the news that T Mobile charged subscribers hundreds of millions of dollars, for bogus charges. I'm glad I left that no-coverage network.

True.. Not many people in the US want this... MS needs to hit the ground running with a high end killer device, like the ones you mentioned, and release it on multiple carriers with a huge marketing campaign.. And, by huge I mean relentlessly huge where people can't go anywhere, watch anything, or do anything without a WP device being marketed to them... That kind of marketing has never been done before for WP, and I don't see this device doing a whole lot of good with serious competition from Motorola, and now Samsung, the both who are better at marketing than MS...... .................... Nevertheless, MS seriously got it right with WP8.1, Universal apps, and Cortana, so now that it seems like they have their heads on the outside of their asses they might just get their marketing, and awareness, situated....... As I've always said, WP slow adoption isn't because of hardware, software, APPS, or even selection of devices,,, it's because the average consumer has no GOOD idea that its a viable option... It doesn't matter how good WP, iOS, or Android is if its not "popular" then it won't sell as good as it could with proper awareness... Popularity doesn't, and never will, make a device a good one, but it will make a good device sell well.... Heck, it even makes crappy devices sell well,, as we've seen... MARKETING MARKETING MARKETING!!!!! .... I've been saying it since December 2010..

High end features lol. Nokia has a fail right off the bat not putting a flash for the camera. Even the 620 had that. I'll stick with Moto G LTE. This can't even compete with the Moto G & they had a chance to do so.. & yes I know the price on this is low. I wonder if adding at least a flash would have drove the cost up that much more.. That should be a standard feature.
