My thoughts on the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL and why this is a turning point for Microsoft

This morning, Microsoft has ? as expected ? unveiled two new Lumias for the Windows Phone line: the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL.
With the announcement of the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL, Microsoft demonstrates it can handle Lumia hardware (and improve where Nokia failed)
Announcing mid-range phones during Mobile World Congress is almost routine now for Microsoft (Nokia), and this year's additions are not game changers by any means. They will also not quell the masses yearning for a new high-end Lumia Windows Phone, something we do not expect until later this year when Windows 10 is good and ready. Sorry, folks.

Still, I want to talk briefly about these phones and my time with them. In short, I like what I see, and I think Microsoft is paying attention.
