BELLEVUE, WA – July 1, 2014 – T-Mobile US Inc. (NYSE: TMUS) today announced pricing and availability for the new Nokia Lumia 635, the very first Lumia device offered in the U.S. powered both by the latest Windows Phone 8.1 operating system and America’s fastest nationwide 4G LTE network—designed data-strong.
Available from both T-Mobile and MetroPCS beginning in July, customers will have several options for getting their hands on the new Lumia 635. The Lumia 635 will first be available from T-Mobile from July 5th on the Home Shopping Network to Simple Choice prepaid customers, and online beginning July 9th at www.t-mobile.com at $0 down + $7 per month for 24 months with a postpaid T-Mobile Simple Choice plan. The Lumia 635 will then be available online and at select MetroPCS stores beginning July 18th for a promotional price of $99, and at participating T-Mobile stores nationwide July 16th.
“The Lumia 635 represents the next stage in the evolution of both the Windows Phone OS and the best-selling Lumia 521,” said Jason Young, Senior Vice President, Marketing for T-Mobile. “The Lumia 635’s advanced features, functionality and design – combined with its amazing price point – make this an absolutely screaming deal. And, once again, the Un-carrier is first out of the gate, offering up the Lumia 635 weeks before the other guys through both T-Mobile and MetroPCS.”
The Lumia 635 is the proud successor to the Lumia 521, one of the best-selling Windows Phone devices ever for both T-Mobile and MetroPCS. With its lightning-fast quad core processor, the Lumia 635 moves at extreme speeds for a superior experience—all on a beautiful 4.5” screen. The device also comes loaded with a myriad of new features:
- Enjoy the all-new Windows Phone 8.1 experience. The latest operating system from Microsoft, Windows Phone 8.1, includes features such as Action Center, which shows new activities and notifications at a glance; Sense, a suite of features that makes managing data use, storage space and battery life easier; and a fast built-in keyboard with shape writing.
· Meet Cortana, your personal digital assistant. She gets to know you, anticipates your needs and respects your privacy. Available only on Windows Phone 8.1, Cortana’s your smartphone assistant who can set reminders by time, location and people, so that you remember to congratulate your best friend on their promotion the next time they call. Simply ask Cortana for help.
· More of the apps you want. The Windows Phone apps portfolio is constantly growing, and your Lumia 635 comes pre-installed with many of the popular and useful apps including Microsoft Office, OneDrive, Skype, Camera, MixRadio and Storyteller which work seamlessly to make the Lumia 635 a great tool for work and play.
· Live Tiles. Keep up to date with the things that matter most to you – like timeline posts, status updates, and much more – making your start screen a reflection of you.
“We are thrilled to partner with T-Mobile to bring the Lumia 635 to the U.S. market and to T-Mobile customers for the first time,” said Matt Rothschild, Head of North America Sales, Microsoft Mobile Devices. “With high-end features, hundreds of thousands of apps available through the Windows Store plus the latest Windows Phone 8.1 experience and Cortana, the Lumia 635 is undoubtedly one of the best affordable smartphone available today.”
For those customers who own Nokia Lumia 521 and Nokia Lumia 925 devices, T-Mobile and MetroPCS plan to make available an Over-The-Air update to Windows Phone 8.1 later this year.
