Microsoft Devices Group Canada launches the affordable Lumia 635 that holds unexpected power

TORONTO, July 31, 2014 /CNW/ - Today, Microsoft Devices Group announced that the Nokia Lumia 635 is available to Canadians. The Lumia 635 offers an uncompromised Windows Phone 8.1 experience at an affordable price.

The Lumia 635 brings the same capabilities as high-end Lumia smartphones, including Microsoft Office, Nokia Camera, MixRadio streaming, and global maps and navigation from HERE, which save time and money. With its 4.5" ClearBlack LCD screen and a Snapdragon quad core processor, the Lumia 635 offers a beautiful display to watch videos and play games with no pauses or hiccups.

"With high-end features, thousands of apps available through the Windows Phone Store plus the latest Windows Phone 8.1 experience, the Lumia 635 is undoubtedly the best affordable smartphone available today," said Matt Rothschild, head of North America sales, Nokia Products Ltd, a subsidiary of Microsoft Mobile Oy.

The first Lumia smartphone to be pre-loaded with Windows Phone 8.1 in Canada, the Lumia 635 introduces one of the best Windows Phone experiences ever. Windows Phone 8.1 allows typing by swiping with Word Flow, the fastest keyboard. You can see all of your chats, social updates and settings with just one swipe in the new Action Center and make your start screen distinctly your own by adding a background photo to see your real-time Live Tiles come to life. The Lumia 635 also comes with a black matte replaceable shell so you can easily swap shells and choose from bright and glossy green, yellow, and orange to further personalize your Lumia experience.

The Nokia Lumia 635 is available in Canada starting July 31. At Rogers and Fido, the device is now available in black, with an exclusive green glossy shell in the box. Please visit www.rogers.com/lumia635 and www.fido.ca/lumia635 for full pricing details. At TELUS, the device is available in black in August.
