Nokia Lumia 521 First Look (Video)

Advertisement

T-Mobile has already announced that the Nokia Lumia 521 would be coming to their network twice. It should be showing up within a month or so, but we got to play with an early version at the Pepcom Digital Focus event the other night in New York City. It’s certainly smaller than the popular larger phones out there, and definitely smaller than T-Mobile’s Nokia Lumia 810. It really feels great in the hand, but it’s not quite as ergonomically designed as the Lumia 710 was. The thickness and weight feel just about perfect, as does the smaller screen size, but then again I’m the type who prefers a screen size that doesn’t require too much finger stretching for one-handed use. The Lumia 521 only has a 5 megapixel camera with no flash and 7Gb of storage, but it does have a MicroSD slot for adding up to 64Gb of music, videos, and photos as well as a user swappable battery for extending uptime. Of course, this is an entry level phone, and T-Mobile hasn’t announced pricing yet, but we expect it to be in the $200 range with no contract (since T-Mobile doesn’t do the contract subsidy thing anymore.) Check out the video below along with a couple more pictures from our first look at the new Nokia Lumina 521.
