The recently announced Lumia 435 from Microsoft is beginning to roll out, with Ireland being the latest country to get the device. UK based retailer Tesco Ireland is selling the Lumia 435 for a bargain price equivalent to $84, which is no surprise as this is a entry level handset. The decently spec'd (for the price) device is also running the latest version of Windows Phone, 8.1 with Lumia Denim, and will also be in line for Windows 10 for Mobile when it launches later this year.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.
