Nokia Lumia 521 on T-Mobile Is Going to Be CRAZY Cheap


Nokia’s Lumia 521 is coming to T-Mobile. We heard earlier this month that the phone would launch sometime in May, and at the time speculated a little about the smartphone’s pricing. After all, this whole UNcarrier thing is new for T-Mobile, and we’re still learning what to expect. We guessed that maybe it might go for $50 upfront on the carrier’s installment plan, followed by some pretty low payments themselves. Well, today we finally get the details about the launch we were waiting for, and the pricing is even a little hard for us to believe: the Lumia 521 will sell for just about $150. Total.

The launch itself is a bit unusual, as well. Sales of the 521 will be kicked-off by HSN this Saturday, April 27. Yes, that’s HSN as in the Home Shopping Network. In fact, there it’s even a better deal, as that $150 will also get you a car charger, screen protector, and free shipping.

Next, on May 11, the 521 hits Microsoft stores and Walmart. Microsoft shaves a buck off the price, offering the phone for $149, and while Walmart hasn’t revealed its own pricing, you can bet that it will be in line.

Sure, it’s not the highest-end Windows Phone handset in the world, but if you’ve been at all curious about WP8, $150 for a smartphone from a major manufacturer is an absolutely killer deal.
