The price is steep considering that Carphone Warehouse is selling the same device in the UK for just £29.99 ($45).
In terms of specs, the Lumia 435 offers a 4-inch LCD display with a resolution of 800 x 480, dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 CPU, 1GB RAM, 8 gigs of on-board storage along with a microSD card slot, 2MP fixed-focus camera at the back and VGA shooter up front along with a 1,560mAh battery. Not the fastest device in the world, but it will be updated to Windows 10 for phones when the operating system launches later this year.
