The Nokia Lumia 521 will make a great backup for my Nexus 4. It’s exactly what WP8 needs right now. Beginner-level smart phones. Nokia has indicated that the retail price will be under $200. I’ve read specific references to $185. Since T-Mobile is separating their phones from their plans (“Uncarrier”) we’ll see what the thing ACTUALLY retails for.
T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 521 will have a 4-inch display with 800 x 480 pixels, 1 GHz Dual Core processor, Adreno 305 GPU, 5MP rear camera, 521MB of RAM, MicroSD card support (up to 64GB), 8GB of internal memory, and a 1,430 mAh battery, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, A-GPS, Bluetoth 3.0 and Windows Phone 8 OS. Now T-Mobile just needs a high end phone, they have low end, mid range.
