The tweet mentions the 521 will initially be available. Funny how the Alan left that part out, especially given how colorful Lumias are.

You can go to the actual tmobile and pay $5 more a month for 100% unlimited.

It's crazy how many MVNOs T-Mobile and Sprint have under their networks they barely can handle their own customers, who's next Home Depot with rugged devices on Sprint? Sears on T-Mobile? No wonder their customers aren't very happy speed wise.
