When Microsoft announced the new Lumia 650 smartphone last month, we knew it would go on sale in Europe first. Availability has since spread but prospective buyers in the US are still waiting for availability. There’s a development for those interested in Microsoft Lumia 650 US sales though, as news on this is incoming.
It looks as though US buyers won’t have to wait much longer following an official Lumia US account conversation spotted on Twitter. A customer who seemed very keen to purchase the device asked about US sales for the Microsoft Lumia 650. In response Lumia US said, “Please stay tuned… we’ll be posting some official updates on social media this week!”
While this doesn’t give us a precise Lumia 650 US availability date, we at least know that we should be finding out about this very soon. Usually we find that this sort of announcement is followed very swiftly by availability, so we don’t expect it to be too much longer until stateside buyers can get their hands on the Lumia 650.
