An employee at a MetroPCS store has shared with Windows Central images from their inventory computer. The photos, posted below, reveal details about the Microsoft Lumia 640's impending launch including price.
MetroPCS stores are ready to receive shipments starting tomorrow, June 18. But stores won't officially begin selling them until Monday, June 22. (Some stores may sell them early though once stock arrives.)
Pricing of the Lumia 640 is set at $129, the same price as offered by Cricket. However, MetroPCS is offering a $90 instant rebate knocking the price down to just $39. MetroPCS, like Cricket, does not have annual contracts, but they do require activation of an account to purchase the phone and that applies in this case too.
