T-Mobile announces Nokia Lumia 521 arriving in May

We first saw the Nokia Lumia 520 back at MWC, and we were impressed by the little device. We were even more excited when we heard it would be coming to T-Mobile. Today T-Mobile has made the Lumia 521 officially more official with just a tiny bit more information. Beginning in May the Lumia 521 will be available at Walmart, Microsoft Stores, and T-Mobile stores. Exact release date and pricing details were not given. We can expect the phone to cost around $240 without contract.

The Lumia 520 has a 4-inch IPS LCD super sensitive display with 480×800 resolution, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of storage, microSD card slot, 5MP camera with 720p recording, and a 1430mAh battery. It’s not going to knock anyone’s socks off, but it is a very capable low-end device. On T-Mobile’s new contract-free “plans” it will be a nice budget option. If it costs around $240 when it launches that’s a very affordable price for an off contract phone. We will have more information on the 521 as we get it.

    It’s a nice little device for those who want an affordable smartphone. I like it because it doesn’t sacrifice too much for the price. The beauty of Windows Phone is even the low-end devices run smooth as silk!
