Microsoft has announced the availability of the budget-friendly Nokia Lumia 630 in the UK. Customers interested in giving Windows Phone 8.1 a run can get their hands on the device for just £89.95, and yes, that's the SIM-free price. It will kick off some competition in the entry-level market, especially after the launch of the Moto E which is already up for sale in the region.
For £89.95, you'd get your hands on a 4.5-inch display sporting a resolution of 854 x 400 pixels, with a quad-core Snapdragon processor under the hood. We understand it comes with a little lower RAM -- just 512MB -- compared to other handsets, but Windows Phone works without any issues even on lower RAM. On the storage side, you get 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card support of up to 128GB.
Other features include a 5MP camera for photos and videos, a 1,830 mAh battery to make sure there's enough juice for the handset, and Windows Phone 8.1. The device will go on sale on May 29th and will be available from most of the retailers such as Carphone Warehouse, Amazon, etc.
Update: Unlocked-Mobiles already have the device in stock in Yellow, Green and White color for 149.98 incl VAT.
