Nokia Lumia 530 reportedly headed to T-Mobile, Cricket

A new rumor from prolific Internet gadget leaker Evleaks claims that the still unannounced Nokia Lumia 530 is coming to T-Mobile, along with AT&T's Cricket Wireless. This is the budget Windows Phone product that evleaks first revealed back in March with the code name "Rock". Since then, he has claimed that the phone will go on sale in the U.S. via T-Mobile, but did not give a specific time frame.

However, on Sunday he posted word that the Lumia 530 will be available on AT&T's newly revamped Cricket Wireless subsidiary sometime in the fourth quarter of 2014. That's basically all the information he has mentioned on both the phone and its availability at this time.

Since this is coming from an unconfirmed source, take all of this information with a grain of salt but if true, this could be a major product launch for Microsoft's new smartphone hardware business, since Nokia's Lumia phones have had major sales success on the budget product side.

Let us know what you think about the rumored Lumia 530 showing up on not one but two wireless carriers in the U.S. below in the comments.
