Starting this Friday, the Microsoft Lumia 640 will be available for the first time in the United States.
Here’s some good news for our American readers: Cricket Wireless will start selling the new Microsoft Lumia 640 on Friday for $129.99 in Cricket’s retail stores and online at www.cricketwireless.com.
The phone comes loaded with features such as an 8-megapixel rear camera with flash and HD video-recording. Under the hood, the Microsoft Lumia’s 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 1 GB of RAM will give you a smooth web-browsing and gaming experience.
Of course, the Microsoft Lumia 640 runs the Windows Phone 8.1 operating system and will be upgradable to Windows 10 when it becomes available later this year. In addition, the phone sports a 5-inch Clearblack HD display for better visibility in sunlight and is super-durable thanks to Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3.
Free one-year Office 365 Personal subscription
The Lumia 640 also helps you #AchieveMore: If you buy the phone between May 15 and June 30, you’ll get a free one-year personal subscription to Office 365 and 1 terabyte of online storage on OneDrive.
The Office 365 subscription will help you get stuff done through Office applications such as Word, Excel, and Outlook and the capacious cloud storage offered by OneDrive means you’ll always have access to your documents, photos, and more no matter where you are.
In addition, customers who redeem the limited-time offer will receive 60 minutes of Skype calling each month to landlines in more than 60 countries and mobile-phone lines in eight countries including the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Thailand, China and Hong Kong SAR.
A subsidiary of AT&T, Cricket offers 4G LTE connectivity nationwide—boosting the productivity capability of the Lumia 640—and its monthly wireless plans start at $35.
