MICROSOFT DEVICES GROUP CANADA - The Nokia Lumia 635 arrives

It should be no surprise that Nokia had plans to bring new Lumia devices to Canada. The Microsoft-owned Finnish smartphone manufacturer announced earlier this week that the Lumia 635, a refresh of the Lumia 625, is now available on both Rogers and Fido, with availability on TELUS at a later date in August. The no-term price for both carriers is $200, or $0 with 2-year contract commitment. No word on what pricing we will see from TELUS, but you can expect it to closely follow other offerings within Canada.

As for specs, the LTE-enabled Nokia Lumia 635 comes out-of-box with Windows Phone 8.1, has a 4.5-inch 800×480 pixel ClearBlack LCD display, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, a 5MP camera that shoots 720p HD videos, 512MB RAM, and an 1830mAh non-removable battery.
