The Windows 10 phone can be purchased for $139 in Europe and select markets.

We already knew that the Lumia 550, which was announced by Microsoft in October, is launching this month for $139. Microsoft kept its promise and announced today that the promising Windows 10 smartphone is now available in select markets.

The Lumia 550 is expected to be an outlier, thanks to Windows 10 and Microsoft's signature apps and services, including Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) OneDrive, Outlook, Skype, and Cortana, the company's own digital assistant. Windows 10, in particular, is a hit amongst Windows users. For this reason, the industry has high expectations that the Lumia 550 will be a game changer.

Starting today, the phone can be purchased for $139 in Europe and select markets. Microsoft plans to sell the Lumia 550 in other regions around the world in the coming weeks. There are two colors to choose from: matte black and glossy white.

For starters, the Lumia 550 has a 4.7-inch HD display and a feature called “Glance Screen,” which displays time, date, notifications, and calendar entries without having to unlock or activate the phone. It also has LTE support, which presumably makes browsing on Microsoft Edge faster.

Other features include a 1.1GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, 5-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, microSD, and a removable 2100 mAh battery. What are your thoughts on the new Lumia 550? Do you think it will beat the iPhone and other flagship Android devices in the market?
