Nokia has a track-record with affordable Windows Phones. The new Nokia Lumia 630 - and its Lumia 635 sibling - follow on from the best-selling Lumia 520, only running Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box and thus benefiting from new features like the Cortana virtual assistant.
HTC has always had a pretty solid grasp on the midrange market, particularly with their Desire line. With decent specifications, low price, and solid build quality, it’s sometimes extremely hard to not think about picking one up. HTC is set out to make that decision a little bit more difficult, now, with the rumor of the Desire 610 making its way to AT&T.
This year for Mobile World Congress was a rebirth of sorts, owing largely to the restructuring of Samsung’s release schedule, Sony’s continued success with their Z series, Nokia’s push of Android, and the next big wave of wearables. We’ve also seen brands like Lenovo and HTC push hard with devices that aren’t aimed directly at the top tier.
Nokia made no bones about the Nokia X being a play for the emerging smartphone audience, and it seems the Android-forked Windows Phone lookalike is off to a good start in China at least.

Two brands are rolling with the Nokia Lumia 635 this summer - two at least, that is - AT&T and T-Mobile. The differences between the two start with their mobile coverage, of course - both brands bring their own carrier-branded apps and data coverage. But the real difference is in the price. When you purchase a Nokia Lumia 635 from AT&T, you have several choices.

After theNokia X, X+andXL, the Microsoft Devices team is back with its fourth Android-based budget smartphone dubbed the X2 Dual SIM, and the best part about it its €99 (about $135) off-contract price. That's very attractive given the range's pretty "inner glow" design, and the specs are also decent for what it is. We're looking at a 4.3-inch WVGA ClearBlack LCD screen, a dual-core 1.
It appears that Nokia isn't coming to Microsoft's developer conference empty-handed. A proposed merger between the two companies is still pending, but Nokia decided to bring in some new hardware regardless. This time, the phone maker has announced the Lumia 930, which is essentially the international version of theLumia Icon.
There has been plenty of talk in regards to the Nokia X and the Play Store since the handset was announced during Mobile World Congress. Or maybe more accurately, the talk was in regards to the lack of the Play Store . While that may be an issue for some, it seems that may not be as big of a deal for others.
There are quite a few top-level apps ready for Nokia X as it heads to launch just one week after it was introduced to the world at Mobile World Congress 2014 .

I enjoyed reviewing the Nokia Lumia 2520 Windows 8.1 RT tablet a few weeks ago and since it’s been over a year, I thought it was time that I reviewed another Windows Phone device as well. Verizon offered to send me the Nokia Lumia Icon (aka Lumia 929), which is available exclusively from them. I swapped SIM cards with my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and have been using the Icon for the past week.
Nokia has just announced a slight variant of its NFC-enabled Treasure Tag. This Treasure Tag Mini still tries to keep track of your stuff, but now only uses Bluetooth 4.0 to do so, If that functionality sounds a bit familiar, it might be because you've probably heard it from the HTC Fetch last year. The basic principle is the same.
Nokia may not be an official part of Microsoft yet -- that should finally happen later this month, if you ask either company -- but that doesn't stop the phone maker from cranking out more devices at the software giant's developer conference.
