Previously known as the Nokia Lumia 735 the Microsoft’s Lumia 735 hit the Verizon lineup just several days ago, on June 18th to be exact. It seems that the Windows Phone that was announced by Microsoft in September 2014 didn’t get much attention. In order to attract new customers that could be interested in the handset, the carrier reduced its price cutting it down from original $79.99 to $29.99 on a two-year contract.
Although it’s not unheard of, it rarely happens that a smartphone hits the stores at the same time it’s announced. We usually have to wait a few days or weeks. Sometimes, however, it takes much longer than a couple of weeks for a phone to go on sale. Take for example the Nokia Lumia 735. The handset debuted way back in September 2014 just before IFA but somehow it managed to avoid US carrier stores until now. After nine long months the Windows phone is at last available in the US via Verizon.
Microsoft, the current owner of Nokia, has just added three more smartphones to its list of offerings during the company’s pre-IFA conference, though two of them are almost identical. The super-slim Nokia Lumia 830, Lumia 735 featuring 4G LTE connectivity and Dual-SIM Lumia 730 are to reinforce the Lumia lineup. All of them are mid-range smartphones sporting Windows Phone 8.1 with the freshest “Denim” update designed to improve phones’ camera performance.
