    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. The Lumia 635, which just showed up on the doorsteps of rival carrier T-Mobile, packs a 4.5-inch 480x854 display and Windows Phone 8.1. 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 ...

    The Nokia Lumia 635 is probably one of the most anticipated phones of the year. Surely it's not the most powerful or good looking phone in the market, but the fact that costs between $99 to $129 off-contract, and even better, the fact that it runs Windows Phone like a champ, are all reasons to make this phone a success. Recently the device was pulled from the Microsoft Store for reasons that we still can't explain, but the problem seems to be solved today. As of today you can pre-order the Nokia Lumia 635 on the Microsoft Store if you want to use it on T-Mobile. We still don't know why ...

    These last few weeks have seen the Lumia 635 creeping up on us here in the States, following the smartphone's formal introduction back at Build in early April. T-Mobile was quick to announce its support for the 635 even back then, and lately it's just been a question of when the phone would get around to arriving. We saw it make the requisite swing by the FCC in late May, signaling things were progressing on their way towards retail availability, but then just last week we witnessed Microsoft abruptly halt pre-orders; was something wrong? Fret not, as today T-Mobile goes official with 635 ...

    Probably one of the most anticipated Windows Phones of the year, is also one of the most affordable ones, if not the most affordable. The Nokia Lumia 635 made the same amount of headlines as its predecessor did, and obviously that's because you can have a full-fledged Windows Phone for a crazy price tag. What's interesting is that even though pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 635 began a day ago, same prices announced of $99 for the AT&T model unlocked and $129 for the T-Mobile version, also unlocked, the Microsoft Store has just yanked these pre-orders without no explanation. The ...

    The Nokia Lumia 635 may not be the flagship that its size points it out to be, but then again, there is also a market for those that want a decent-sized phone with an enticing price tag. After its recent announcement and launch in certain countries abroad, we're still waiting for it to reach US shores, and obviously there are steps in that process, which have already begun. The Nokia Lumia 635 has just stopped by the FCC, and judging by its frequency support of bands AWS 1700/2100 MHz and LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 7 and 17, this is clearly the same device to support both AT&T and T-Mobile. ...

    What exactly qualifies as a "remix?" How deluded do you have to be to believe in all these "Prime" rumors? Why are we so transfixed by the notion of lasers on smartphones, and so easily taken in by a smartphone commercial, if it's shot like a trailer for Inception? We tackle these questions, and the biggest announcement section in the history of the podcast, in episode 096 of the Pocketnow Weekly. No, that's not bragging – it's just an unavoidable symptom of a month packed with unboxings, hands-ons, product launches, and reviews (both forthcoming and already-published). But even in the ...

    Nokia just introduced its latest batch of Windows Phone models a couple weeks back, welcoming the first of its models that will ship running Windows Phone 8.1. The Lumia 630/635 we've been following since we first heard its codename Moneypenny back in November of last year. Now that it's official, what are we to look forward to from Nokia next? As luck would have it, a crop of new codenames has arrived fresh off the leak wagaon, and from the look of things Nokia is up to its old habits. According to @evlekas, new Nokia codenames include Ara, Leo, Moonraker, Onyx, Peridot, Superman, Tesla, ...

    Nokia's got a couple buns in the oven – and by “buns” we mean Windows Phone handsets, and by oven we mean, well, assembly line, we guess. But no matter how we're referring to them, phones like the Lumia 630/635 and Lumia 930 have just been itching to go public. Earlier we heard that Nokia might have its eye on an April 19 launch event, but just last week we picked up on a new rumor suggesting that the phones could debut quite a bit sooner, and might be unveiled right at the start of the month, on April 2. Sure enough, today Nokia starts sending out invitations to just such an April 2 ...

    When it comes to Windows Phone news, as well as news of the latest Lumia smartphones from Nokia, there are two dates we've been keeping in mind: April 2, and April 19. The former is when Microsoft's Build conference gets underway this year, and sometime during the event (which runs though April 4), we're expecting Microsoft to make a big Windows Phone 8.1 announcement. The latter date is one we've heard rumored for a Nokia event, where it would presumably introduce its first native WP8.1 handsets. Now, however, it seems that those new Lumias may make their first public appearance a little ...

    Well, speak of the devil! We were only just looking at the FCC paperwork for a smartphone that may very well be the Nokia Lumia 635 (assuming it's not the 630 itself), when now a new render of the 630 has leaked, showing us the handset from a new angle and seeming to verify that the phone will arrive without a physical camera shutter button. While technically there's nothing new about Windows Phone models without a camera button (the Alcatel One Touch View from 2012 lacks one), the idea's been gaining a lot more traction as we prepare for the arrival of Windows Phone 8.1. Part of that ...

    Does Nokia have a launch event scheduled for April 19? That's a big fat “maybe” for the moment, but if it does end up taking place, two of the phones we might hope to see are the Lumia 630 and 635. Leaked specs have talked about things like an FWVGA 4.5-inch display, 1GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 400, so while we're looking at lower-end hardware, there's still cause to be excited: dual-SIM support should be available for one model, and both are expected to run Windows Phone 8.1, dropping their hardware Windows keys in the process. As we wait to learn what becomes of those April launch ...

    At the MWC last week, Nokia certainly delivered: in addition to the Nokia X we were all expecting, we also got those X+ and XL variants. But beyond this new Android project, we've also been tracking rumors about a number of Windows Phone handsets, and despite some of them having been hanging around for months, they were no-shows at MWC. Considering that the Lumia 630/635 are supposed to run Windows Phone 8.1, their absence wasn't entirely unsurprising, but we still found ourselves left with a new question: just when would this hardware go official? While it's far from confirmed, today we ...
