Lumia 530 out at T-Mobile on Oct.15, Cricket tomorrow

02 October, 2014

Back in July, immediately after the Nokia Lumia 530 was announced, T-Mobile confirmed that it would sell this device. And now the time has come for us to get an actual release date.

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.
