After months of delay, finally the Lumia 620 will make its way to the U.S. in all its colorful glory. You won't find the device hanging about on wireless carriers such as AT&T and Verizon, however: it will be available on a smaller carrier named Aio Wireless.
If you weren't aware, the Lumia 620 was the first Windows Phone 8 device to come out at a very reasonable cost with all the bells and whistles one would expect from a smartphone. The device's sleek design and changeable back covers are the main attraction here, along with the Windows Phone 8 operating system, since no one had expected Nokia to launch an affordable Windows Phone 8 device so early in the game.
If you're interested, you can pick up the Lumia 620 on Aio Wireless for only $179.99. We are not certain if this is a contract or prepaid pricing, but we're leaning toward prepaid, since the Lumia 620 would likely be less expensive than this on contract.
According to Aio Wireless's press release, "Fast forward into the present you might realize the Lumia 620 is no longer the poster boy of affordable Windows Phone 8 handsets, however, compared to the Lumia 720 and Lumia 520, the Lumia 620 looks better."

Time will tell how the Lumia 620 performs in the U.S.; however, we don't expect it to match up with the performance of the Lumia 920 and Lumia 822.
