Microsoft Build kicked off in San Francisco this week and, as a Microsoft-owned company, Nokia was on hand to announce its newest Lumia phones. The company gave us a handful of devices at MWC in Barcelona, but it saved the Lumia line for Build. We've already met the Lumia 930 and the Lumia 630, and now we've got the follow on to the Lumia 625: the Lumia 635.

Not a whole lot has changed in terms of hardware. Of course, we've jumped from dual-core to quad-core, and that's nothing to sniff at. But this is still very much an entry-level device, and the battery has actually gotten a bit smaller. Still, the fact is that Nokia has cut the price significantly. Of course, this device also comes with Windows 8.1, so that means MS Office, Nokia's own Camera application, HERE Maps, and Mix Radio.
Availability for the Nokia 635 is set for this coming summer. It will be available in the United States.
