Product Launch - Microsoft Lumia 535 - Let's #MakeItHappen

Hi Guys,

Microsoft SA announced the availability of the Lumia 535 single and dual SIM in South Africa on 3rd Feb 2015, available from R1699 on prepaid, and on contract offers starting from R149 per month. Lumia 535 single and dual SIM features five free, integrated Microsoft experiences, a spacious 5-inch display and a 5 MP front facing camera - all for an affordable price – the Lumia 535 helps people do more of what they want, for less.

1. Make memorable Skype video calls and seamlessly switch between voice and video with built-in Skype integration.

2. Access, edit and share Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents and OneNote notebooks wherever you are, with the pre-installed Office suite.

3. Save and sync photos, videos and Office documents securely with 15GB of free OneDrive cloud storage.

Connect with work and personal e-mail while on the go, with Microsoft Outlook built-in.

4. Showcase photos and videos or get even more productive with Office on the large, 5-inch qHD display.

Fit more memorable backgrounds or add more friends into Skype video calls and selfies with the 5 MP wide angle front facing camera.

5. Never miss a call or text, and be reachable on both SIM cards at any time with Smart Dual SIM for maximum flexibility.

“Many people, especially the younger tech-involved audiences, aspire to own the latest flagship smartphone, but often don’t have the means,” said Patrick Henchie, Head of product, Microsoft Mobile Devices, Sub-Sahara Africa.  “With access to the best services right out of the box, including the Windows Phone 8.1 update, Lumia Denim, Lumia 535 helps people do more of what they want, for less.”

The Lumia 535 is available now, in black and white colors.

The phone has all the Microsoft branding on the shell, on the battery, on the front glass screen and on the body of the phone behind the battery. The phone is light weight and looks fabulous with its big display. The phone is also launching it's own #MAKEITHAPPEN campaign where buyers can pledge for anything they want within the short span of three months and then Microsoft will try to help you do the same. For me I will prepare for Half-Marathon within the next three months #makeithappen @MicrosoftSA

The #Selfie app is still not inverting the picture automatically so the words written, if any are still mirror imaged. I hope its me that is taking the wrong selfies but will try and test if Microsoft sends me review devices soon!
