Lumia 435 Now Available In South Africa

Microsoft has announced that its first 400 Series Lumia, the Lumia 435, is now available in South Africa at a retail price of R1149.

For the month of March, the Microsoft Lumia 435 will be available exclusively on Vodacom prepaid through Ackermans, Microsoft said.

The 435 features the bright pastel colours we have come to know from the 535, Windows Phone OS and an emphasis on imaging.

The Microsoft Lumia 435 boasts Windows Phone 8.1 with the Lumia Denim update, a 4-inch 800×480 screen, a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 SoC, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and microSD support for cards up to 128GB. There are also two versions, one with dual SIM support, but we’re not quite sure which version of the device is shipping to SA shores yet.

Microsoft is interested in covering the base smartphone user with the Microsoft Lumia 435, as Shaun Durandt, Microsoft’s mobile devices GM for South Africa explains:

It is clear by the unprecedented adoption of smartphones across South Africa that people want a phone that is capable of performing more than just basic tasks, at an affordable price. The advantage of Lumia remains its ability to provide an almost consistent level of usability, even with entry level devices. This performance is supplemented with great integrated offerings like Office, OneDrive and Skype.
