Microsoft Lumia 830: A closer look at the new 'affordable flagship'
Microsoft's Lumia 530 - a new ultra-affordable Windows Phone that will slot in below the 630 in its range - will reportedly be made available on Cricket Wireless, in addition to T-Mobile, in Q4 2014.
Cricket Wireless will offer both the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S with a "no contract" plan, which includes unlimited talk, text and data (sort of) for $55 a month starting June 22nd.
An executive at Cricket Wireless says that the US wireless provider will "likely" sell smartphones based on Windows Phone 8, claiming, "'I've seen Windows Phone 8, and it's pretty impressive."
