Lumia 530 out at T-Mobile on Oct.15, Cricket tomorrow
The magenta carrier will have the Lumia 530 in stores on October 15. If you want one, you'll only need to pay $79.20. If you can't wait that long, you'll be able to get it from Best Buy and Microsoft Stores starting on October 5.
If even that feels like too much of a wait, then you can buy a Lumia 530 tomorrow, though at Cricket - AT&T's prepaid arm. Over there the price is lower even, at $49.99, but you'll need to activate qualified wireless service when you purchase it. That said, as Cricket is a prepaid carrier you won't have to sign a two-year contract or anything like that.
The Lumia 530 is Nokia's new entrant in the low-end smartphone space, which the company now owned by Microsoft clearly hopes will provide a healthy dose of sales given its low price.
