The Nokia Lumia 521
, despite its low-end status, is arguably one of the hottest selling phones in the U.S. A leaked photo tweeted by evleaks reveals that this model is heading to MetroPCS. Considering that T-Mobile offers this model, and the two carriers now are intertwined thanks to T-Mobile's purchase of the pre-paid carrier, it might not be surprising to see this handset branded with the MetroPCS name. Especially since T-Mobile keeps talking about the great migration that it is leading MetroPCS customers to make, over to T-Mobile equipment and plans.
The Nokia Lumia 521 is the T-Mobile version of the Nokia Lumia 520
and is essentially the same phone. The latter model has recently been crowned "King" of WP phones
and is the most searched-for Windows Phone model
. Meanwhile, in the states the Nokia Lumia 521 has sold out on HSN, at Walmart
and at T-Mobile
. HSN yesterday offered the phone for $99.95
with new customers receiving an additional $20 off. Alas, that special price ended as soon as the clock turned 12 Sunday morning.
