Microsoft unveils new Lumia 535, their first branded Windows Phone

Microsoft finally unveiled their first non-Nokia branded Lumia device today, the 535, including a familiar look but with Microsoft logos everywhere.
At $140 USD (110) it is clear the device is aimed at everyone, and it will be an upgrade from previous 5-series Lumia devices.

Microsoft's latest has a 5-inch IPS display, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 200, 8GB internal storage (expandable to 128GB with microSD), 1GB RAM and dual 5MP cameras. It also includes dual-SIM capabilities for European and Asian consumers who can take advantage.

The device runs on Windows 8.1, and as expected, Microsoft has bundled its suites including Office, Skype and OneNote.

Microsoft is releasing the phone in China, Hong Kong and Bangladesh this month, with a more global rollout expected before the end of the year.

FAIL!!!!!

When American companies launch products in other CONQUERING regions, say...CHINA/HONG KONG.....it's always an epic fail and boggles my freakin' mind! China doesn't like MS for the Windows 8 and surely will kick this out knowing that the Xiaomi is only twice the price of the Lumia super-basic model 535 but offers 5 times the power/features. (Twice the price being 300 measley bucks for a pimp phone)

FAIL!!!!!
