Lumia 630

As promised a few weeks ago, T-Mobile's website is now selling the Lumia 635, the budget priced Windows Phone 8.1 device from Microsoft. T-Mobile is selling the phone for $0 down and $7 per month for 24 months with its postpaid Simple Choice plan, which means it will cost a total of $168.

T-Mobile is the first wireless carrier to sell the Lumia 635 in the U.S., which is also officially the first phone sold in the country to have Microsoft's Windows Phone 8.1 installed and available for use out of the box. It has a 4.5-inch display with a 854x480 resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor with a clock speed of 1.2 GHz, 512 MB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 128 GB with a microSD card. There's also a five megapixel rear camera.

Just a reminder: T-Mobile will start selling the Lumia 635 in its stores in the U.S. on July 16, and that will be followed by MetroPCS selling the phone for $99 in its stores and online on July 18. AT&T is scheduled to sell the Lumia 635 but a launch date has yet to be revealed.
