Nokia Lumia 635 Windows Phone 8.1, quad-core LTE smartphone hits Cricket Wireless on Nov. 7
Cricket Wireless is expanding its portfolio with the addition of the 4G LTE-enabled Nokia Lumia 635, launching the smartphone on Nov. 7.
The Nokia Lumia 635 is expected to be one of the most popular Windows Phone devices on the market, as it comes with good specs and features, an affordable price tag, and the latest version of Microsoft's mobile operating system. The handset has already enjoyed great popularity since its launch, and wider availability should only boost its success.
Starting on Friday, Nov. 7, the Nokia Lumia 635 will be available for purchase from Cricket Wireless stores and online in Cyan, sporting a $99.99 price tag with activation. Moreover, both new and existing customers will be able to enjoy higher-speed data allotments "at the same low price."
"Again this season, Cricket helps customers by offering the newest smartphone technology and monthly rate plans at competitive prices. This means customers can get the great devices they want and also have money to spend on holiday parties and gifts for family and friends," Andy Smoak, head of product for Cricket Wireless, touts in a new press release on Tuesday, Nov. 4. "Our no-annual contract plans starting at $35 per month after $5 credit for using Auto Pay - all in, including taxes and fees - and competitive device pricing make Cricket's offering one of the best values in the market place."
The Nokia Lumia 635 made its debut back in April alongside the Lumia 630, launching with Windows Phone 8.1 on board out of the box, complete with the much-touted Cortana virtual assistant. The two devices are virtually identical, with the exception that the Lumia 635 is 4G LTE-enabled and single-SIM, while the Lumia 630 comes with dual-SIM and only supports 3G.
In terms of specifications, the Nokia Lumia 635 sports a 4.5-inch ClearBlack IPS LCD display with a resolution of 854 x 840 and Gorilla Glass 3 protection, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, a 5-megapixel rear camera with no flash, and no front shooter.
While the handset doesn't come with any high-end specs on board, it does pack some neat software features such as the Lumia Storyteller app, Cortana, Kid's Corner, Xbox Live for gaming on the go, and premium free services including HERE Drive+, HERE Maps, Microsoft Office, and MixRadio.
When it comes to pricing options, the Nokia Lumia 635 will be available on Cricket's Basic ($40, 1GB), Smart ($50, 3GB), and Pro ($60, 10GB) plans, which are eligible for a $5 price cut with monthly Auto Pay credit.
