It is official then – Microsoft Corp. has just announced of their latest smartphone, which would no longer carry the Nokia moniker, but rather, it will see to it that the Lumia tradition continues, taking off from where its predecessor, the Lumia 530, left off. I am referring to the new Microsoft Lumia 535 that will arrive in two variants – with one of them sporting dual SIM capability, and both of them will be powered by the latest Windows Phone 8.1 mobile operating system that ensures one gets to enjoy the latest Microsoft experiences without having to break the bank.
For instance, making memorable Skype video calls are now a cinch, as the Lumia 535 seamlessly switches between voice and video with its built-in Skype integration. Apart from that, you will be able to access, edit and share Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents in addition to OneNote notebooks regardless of your physical location, thanks to the pre-installed Office suite.
Other than that, why not take advantage of the 15GB of free OneDrive cloud storage, where you can then save and synchronize your collection of photos, videos, Office documents and other devices in a secure manner? You will also be able to give Cortana a go, as it has been touted to be a truly personal virtual assistant which is capable of anticipating your needs as well as making tailored suggestions.
In terms of hardware, the Lumia 535 will come with a wide-angle 5 megapixel front-facing camera, and a spacious 5” qHD display, while having Smart Dual SIM in one of the variants would definitely pave the way for maximum flexibility. Expect the Microsoft Lumia 535 and Lumia 535 Dual SIM to roll out in key markets this month, where one can choose from bright green, bright orange, white, dark grey, cyan and black shades, sporting an estimated retail price of 110 Euros thereabouts.
