AT&T announces Nokia Lumia 635, HTC Desire 610 availability
AT&T remains one of the best carriers to be with if you want to get your hands all over the newest phones to hit the market. Apart from the Amazon Fire Phone exclusive, the carrier has just net itself two new phones, announcing Nokia Lumia 635 and HTC Desire 610 availability on its network.
It will be available on AT&T GoPhone on July 25, and will later make its way over to AT&T online and in retail stores on August 8. The GoPhone pricing is $99.99, while AT&T will sell its version for $139.99 (or $5.84 a month on Next 18, or $7 a month with Next 12). It will come in orange or black.
The Desire 610, by contrast to the Lumia 635, is an Android phone hitting the carrier’s network. Boasting a 4.7-inch 480×854 display and front-facing BoomSound speakers, it’s fairly powerful, though unapologetically midrange.
The Desire 610 will run $199.99 with no annual contract, and can be purchased at AT&T retail locations or its website on July 25. Next 18 will make that $8.34 a month, while Next 12 will make it $10 a month.
Update: The screen resolution of the HTC Desire 610 is in dispute between 540×960 and 480×854. We’ll reach out to AT&T for comment, and will update this post if we hear back.
Update 2: The international model has a qHD resolution, while AT&T has downgraded its version to FWVGA.
