Microsoft's latest low-cost Windows Phone, the Lumia 435, has been given a price and a release date for the UK. The device is now up for pre-order on Amazon UK for £88.49 in black, green or orange and will be released on March 1. And while it's not particularly expensive, it's perhaps a little more than we'd have expected.
That's primarily because the larger, better specified Lumia 535 is now also officially available in the UK and Amazon is selling it right now for £84.95. Considering the Lumia 435 should represent the current entry level to Microsoft's own Windows Phone line, the pricing in the UK doesn't necessarily reflect that right now.
Of course, prices could still change between now and March 1, but for anyone interested it's good to know that it will officially be launching in the UK in the not too distant future.
