Microsoft has had its own smartphone division for half a year now after buying Nokia's devices business. However, while big markets await that killer flagship, Redmond is continuing to dabble in the entry level, a price bracket that has admittedly served Windows Phone better than others. The latest handset is the Microsoft Lumia 435, and in the world of Lumia the lower the number the lower the specs, so this 435 is a budget device.Truly budget too with a price tag of 69 Euros ($81), so once again Microsoft is going after emerging markets and leaving the money spinning regions to Apple and Android. As you would expect for this ultra-humble price tag, the Lumia 435 comes with some low end specs. Those include a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 with 1GB of RAM, a 4-inch LCD 480p screen, a lowly 2 megapixel rear camera, a VGA fronty, 8GB of on board storage, a micro SD card slot, and a changeable 1,560 mAh juicer. The device rocks Windows Phone 8.1, comes with the Lumia Denim update loaded on, and also has other goodies such as free 30Gb of OneDrive cloud storage, Nokia?s HERE Maps and HERE Transit.
