Windows Phone 10

Windows is the world easiest operating system, designed to fit your lifestyle. This will give the user an ecosystem that integrates many mediums from their office, home and into the palm of their hand. With Windows 10 the experience is even more seamless and personalized as ever as the familiarity from handheld to the PC domain makes it for a user-friendly experience, the Win JR LTE and Win HD LTE include features such as Live Tiles that surface information important to you; Action Center, which show new activities and notifications at a glance; and Senses, a suite of features that takes the work out of managing data use, storage space and battery life.

BLU Win JR LTE

The Win JR LTE features an upgraded display performance with a vivid 4.5" display and IPS technology. Dual camera support with a main 5.0 mega pixel autofocus camera plus LED Flash on the back, as well as a front facing camera for Skype video calls and self-portraits. Details are in the design, with a beautiful cross hatched pattern along the color matched metal finishing on the side keys ensures a continuous and streamline design. The finishing touch is a round curve design that provides maximum handheld comfort and a compact appearance. The BLU Win JR LTE is already shipping and available now, unlocked with Dual-SIM support, for $99.99 online through Amazon.com and MicrosoftStore.com, and will make way shortly thereafter to all Microsoft Retail Store locations nationwide in the USA, as well as Canada.
