AT&T Confirms – Will Carry The Lumia 640 and 640XL

With the announcements of the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640XL this morning at Mobile World Congress, one of the first questions that came up was when or if we would see these in the US market.  The answer came almost as quickly as the announcements themselves.  AT&T has issued a Press Release stating that they will carry the Lumia 640 and will be the first US carrier to have the Lumia 640XL in their lineup.  While pricing and release dates were not a part of the announcement, you can expect them to be here pretty soon given that Microsoft announced they are available this month.

The news is welcome for Windows Phone users here in the United States where devices have few and far between from any carrier.  AT&T has been the most supportive the platform, currently carrying the Lumia 635, Lumia 830 and Lumia 1520.  The addition of the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640XL will only solidify that position.  While the pricing and timing of the devices hitting the carrier’s offerings is not clear, the release does confirm that both devices will support the LTE versions of these devices.
