Trade In Your iPhone 4S for A Lumia 1020 or Lumia 1520 At AT&T… For Free!
Gabriel Roşu / 4 years ago
Windows Phone is steadily gaining ground in the smartphone market, and while it is also subtly trolling its competitors when it has the chance, it does it yet again, but this time it’s not Samsung, but Apple.
AT&T have apparently made a deal with Nokia, and implicitly Microsoft, for curious users who have never tried Microsoft’s WP8 operating system before to try it for free. The catch is that you will have to bring your old iPhone 4S and exchange it for a Lumia 1020 or a Lumia 1520 with a two-year contract with AT&T.
When looking back and seeing that the Lumia 1020 for example was valued at a $300 price tag on-contract, Microsoft, as well as AT&T, is really hitting it big with this new deal. However, users should also take into account a major gap that Windows Phone currently has, and that is the applications inside the Store.
If you are not that interested in having loads and loads of applications on your smartphone and enjoy what Windows Phone 8 as well as the Windows Phone Store has to offer, then you are set! However, Microsoft is working on closing the application gap on the platform, but like all things, it takes time. In the end, who knows? Maybe WP8 Store will be packed with application next year. It all depends on Microsoft to make life easier for developers to build and publish their applications on the Windows Phone Store.
