“The Lumia 635 represents the next stage in the evolution of both the Windows
Phone OS and the best-selling Lumia 521,” said Jason Young, Senior Vice
President, Marketing for T-Mobile. “The Lumia 635’s advanced features,
functionality and design – combined with its amazing price point – make this
an absolutely screaming deal. And, once again, the Un-carrier is first out of
the gate, offering up the Lumia 635 weeks before the other guys through both
T-Mobile and MetroPCS.”
The Lumia 635 is the proud successor to the Lumia 521, one of the best-selling
Windows Phone devices ever for both T-Mobile and MetroPCS. With its
lightning-fast quad core processor, the Lumia 635 moves at extreme speeds for
a superior experience—all on a beautiful 4.5” screen. The device also comes
loaded with a myriad of new features:
*Enjoy the all-new Windows Phone 8.1 experience. The latest operating
system from Microsoft, Windows Phone 8.1, includes features such as Action
Center, which shows new activities and notifications at a glance; Sense, a
suite of features that makes managing data use, storage space and battery
life easier; and a fast built-in keyboard with shape writing.
*Meet Cortana, your personal digital assistant. She gets to know you,
anticipates your needs and respects your privacy. Available only on
Windows Phone 8.1, Cortana’s your smartphone assistant who can set
reminders by time, location and people, so that you remember to
congratulate your best friend on their promotion the next time they call.
Simply ask Cortana for help.
*More of the apps you want. The Windows Phone apps portfolio is constantly
growing, and your Lumia 635 comes pre-installed with many of the popular
and useful apps including Microsoft Office, OneDrive, Skype, Camera,
MixRadio and Storyteller which work seamlessly to make the Lumia 635 a
great tool for work and play.
*Live Tiles. Keep up to date with the things that matter most to you – like
timeline posts, status updates, and much more – making your start screen a
reflection of you.
“We are thrilled to partner with T-Mobile to bring the Lumia 635 to the U.S.
market and to T-Mobile customers for the first time,” said Matt Rothschild,
Head of North America Sales, Microsoft Mobile Devices. “With high-end
features, hundreds of thousands of apps available through the Windows Store
plus the latest Windows Phone 8.1 experience and Cortana, theLumia 635 is
undoubtedly one of the best affordable smartphone available today.”

Phone 8.1 later this year.
