Microsoft Lumia 550 with 4G LTE with Windows 10 goes on sale at $139.

Microsoft’s Lumia 550 with 4G LTE and Windows 10 has gone on sale, starting with Europe. At its recent hardware announcement, Microsoft showed off its new Surface devices along with a focus on two Windows 10-powered smartphones, the Lumia 950 and 950 XL.

Microsoft has launched the new Windows 10 Lumia 550, a $139 LTE smartphone that sports a 4.7” HD display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 (1.1 GHz quad-core) processor. First announced back in October, the Lumia 550 is only available in Europe from today, but Microsoft says that it will be arriving in other regions globally “in the coming weeks.” The main selling point of the device, besides its low price point, is that it comes bundled with all the usual Microsoft apps and features, including Office, Cortana, and OneDrive. However, it doesn’t pack the most powerful of specs — it comes with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage (expandable up to 200GB with microSD), and a 5MP camera (2MP front-facing). Lumia 550 has a 4.7-inch HD screen (16:9, 1280×720, 315 ppi) with Glance feature that lets users see their time, date, notifications, and calendar entries without having to unlock or activate your phone.

The new operating system strives to unify the mobile and desktop experience by letting developers build apps that work across all Microsoft platforms, including phones, tablets, PCs, Xbox, and Internet of Things. Coming to the cameras this affordable smartphone seems to fall a bit short of the competition with a 5 MP auto focus camera on the back and a 2 MP snapper up front.

So far, Acer is the only other company to have announced a Windows 10 mobile phone, though Alcatel OneTouch will likely have its own cheap handset by year-end. These services are also available on iOS and Android, however, so it’s mostly just a cheap phone that will probably run smoother than your average budget Android handset.
