Amazon Prime offers the Nokia Lumia 520 for $69.99
The Nokia Lumia 520 owns about 33% of the Windows Phone 8 market according to a recent tweet from AdDuplex's Alan Mendelovich. The amazing demand for the entry-level model and its T-Mobile branded twin, the Nokia Lumia 521, has helped Windows Phone pick up some traction in the smartphone industry during 2013. Whenever the Nokia Lumia 521 goes on sale in the U.S., whether by Walmart, HSN ,T-Mobile or others, the phone sells out quickly.

Now, Amazon Prime has quite a sale on the Nokia Lumia 520, which is branded with the AT&T name. For $69.99, the phone is yours lock, stock and barrel. In addition, if you are an Amazon Prime member, shipping is free. Insert any AT&T SIM card into the handset and you can get PAYG service using the phone. If you have an AT&T account, you can use the phone immediately without signing a contract.

The Nokia Lumia 520 is equipped with a 4 inch LCD screen with resolution of 480 x 800, which produces a pixel density of 235ppi. A dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor is under the hood with the Adreno 305 GPU crunching the graphics. 512MB of RAM is on board along with 8GB of native storage. A 64GB capacity microSD slot is offered, and a 5MP camera is on back. It's all powered by a 1430mAh battery.

While this is quite an amazing deal, if you can hold on until Black Friday coming at the end of next week, Tiger Direct will be offering the same model for $59!

I have this phone as my backup phone and I must say it is very good! Never lags or slows down.
Just yesterday I completed a long drive and Nokia navigation is awesome. Hats off.

Youtube works perfectly. You can try apps like metrotube, mytube.
Games run smoothly as long as they are optimized. For example, Asphalt 7 runs very smooth.
Temple run used to suck even on Lumia 920 because of poor optimization but after the optimization it runs smooth on even 520.

Build quality is fine but don't expect the build quality of high end handsets.

That's what it's worth, since the Moto G has been released.

Useless for tmobile as the 521 variant is still $96 dollars.

But if you like att go for it.

T mobile coverage if vastly inferior to AT&T.

Love my 521 tmobile Lumina. This phone is fast, slick and consistent.
On top of it, I have the Walmart Family ...
Can not think of a reason to get another phone.
