Over at the Microsoft Store online you can get an exclusive color option on the BLU Win HD Windows Phone. The new Smoldering Gray color is in stark contrast to the neon-like colors that the Blue Win HD is normally found online or at your local Microsoft Store but for those who want a bit more sedate (i.e. normal) color, the Smoldering Gray option is right for you. The 5″ Windows Phone only comes in this color when you order it online but it is still the same low price of $179 unlocked.
The 6TAG Instagram app for Windows Phone has received a minor update today, bringing support for the new BLU Win phone devices. The update is free and available now in the Windows Phone store. If you aren’t familiar with 6TAG, it is a great Instagram app and far superior in my opinion than the Instagram Beta app (which as far as I know has NEVER been updated).
For day two of the 12 Days of Deal promotion running at your local Microsoft Store, you will be able to pick up the BLU Win HD 5″ Windows Phone for $99, $80 off the regular price of $179. For those who can’t get to a Microsoft Store, you can pick up the phone for $129 online, a savings of $50. This is similar to the savings you could have on the Toshiba Encore Mini tablet today.
The BLU Win HD is unlocked and comes with a 5″ display, 8MP Camera, 8GB of Storage (expandable with up to a 32GB MicroSD card) but the biggest feature is that this is a dual SIM phone for those who want two carriers or travel internationally.
