Nokia announced early Thursday morning that it will bring the Lumia 620 to the United States (though it has already been available here for purchase unlocked). The phone has been incredibly popular abroad, despite its entry-level features, and will make its debut on Aio Wireless.
You may be wondering what Aio Wireless is. As were we, until we discovered a press release noting that the carrier is making its debut today as a value company without an annual contract. It’s activating services in Houston, Orlando and Tampa today and will launch in new markets around the U.S. this year. AT&T has been mum on any reference to Aio, but the firm is an AT&T subsidiary that runs on its network and offers prepaid plans and devices from Samsung, ZTE and Nokia,a mong others, right now. Plans start at $35 and move up to $70 per month and provide access to AT&T’s 4G network but not its faster 4G LTE services.
The Lumia 620 offers a 5-megapixel camera, a 3.8-inch display, 2GB of expandable storage, a 1GHz dual-core processor, a 1,300mAh battery, Windows Phone 8, Nokia suite of pre-loaded and useful Windows Phone applications and more.
