HSN drops price of Nokia Lumia 521 to $129.95
In the mid 1980's, before the internet was a household presence, and a razor was something you would shave with, Home Shopping Network was considered an incredible idea. Started on radio, the deals started taking over cable television and before you can say zirconia diamond, competition was all over the place. Stocks of HSN and QVC Network soared before the law of gravity took over. Eventually, the survivors figured out how to co-exist in a world full of internet shopping sites and retailing apps.

Back in April, HSN put the T-Mobile branded Nokia Lumia 521 up for sale at a price of $149. This included a car charger and a screen protector. HSN quickly sold out all 400 units of the phone and followed that up by selling out the device (in 60 minutes) on Walmart and on T-Mobile's pre-paid service.

After selling out on HSN, the Nokia Lumia 521 was restocked by the cable-based retailer. At the same time, we showed you a YouTube video that displayed the hype employed by HSN to sell the phone. An HSN salesman calls the device, "the most anticipated phone about to hit the market," which might have suckered in those who are not familiar with the smartphone market.

Anyway, we bring up HSN once again because the retailer is offering the Nokia Lumia 521 at an even lower price of  $129.95, a $20 discount from its original deal for the phone. Buyers can also arrange to pay for the phone with five equal, interest free payments of $25.99. If you're interested, click on the sourcelink.
