Blu shows off its new Windows Phones, Win JR and Win HD, in new videos

Earlier this week, the first Windows Phone from Blu Products went on sale, at the remarkably low price of just $89 off-contract. The company - based in Miami, Florida - has a strong following in many parts of the US and Latin America, selling millions of devices across 40 markets. 

The Blu Win JR

In a pair of official videos, Blu has now shown off now just the Win JR that launched this week, but also its larger sibling, the Win HD, which was first revealed by Microsoft at the Computex trade expo in Taiwan earlier this year. 

Key specs of the Blu Win JR, shown in the video above, include: 

  • 4-inch WVGA (800x480px) display
  • Quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB onboard storage (plus microSD support up to 32GB)
