In May, AT&T launched a new subsidiary, Aio Wireless, starting in just a few cities in the U.S. The wireless carrier offered a number of smartphones with no contracts at relatively cheap prices that used AT&T's network. It's the only carrier in the U.S. to sell the Nokia Lumia 620 with Windows Phone 8, and its price was recently lowered to just $99.99.
Today, AT&T announced that Aio Wireless will be available nationwide sometime in mid-September via its online store. That means that more people in the U.S. will be able to purchase the cheap Lumia 620 and that could expand the reach of Windows Phone 8 as a whole.
Just a reminder, here are the hardware specs for the Lumia 620:
- Display: 3.8 inches
- Processor: 1 GHz dual core Snapdragon
- Memory: 512 MB of RAM
- Storage: 8 GB
- Camera: Five megapixels

The carrier is also selling a number of other cheap "no contract" smartphones such as the ZTE Prelude, the Samsung Galaxy Amp and more.
