Nokia Lumia 520 is now available in the United States
posted by Victor H. / Apr 11, 2013, 4:15 AM
The Lumia 520 has already launched in the United Kingdom and other markets. It features a 4-inch WVGA display, a 1GHz dual-core processor, and a 5-megapixel camera. But most importantly it comes with Nokia’s free HERE Maps with offline navigation and the Nokia Music app with the Mix Radio free music streaming service.
The Lumia 520 sold at Expansys will work with AT&T and T-Mobile in the United States, but it is fully unlocked and not carrier branded. T-Mobile has announced it will bring the Lumia 521 in May. The Lumia 521 a very similar model that you’d be able to purchase with a subsidy on the carrier.
We already have the Nokia Lumia 520 in our offices so stay tuned for an in-depth review coming soon.

I think it doesn't make sense buying this phone with contract when it's available cheap off-contract.

T-Mobile changed their plans and all plans are contract free- the phone isn't subsidized as stated in the article or with a contract. You can either buy it outright or pay it off on an interest free installment plan that is billed as a separate line item on your phone bill. Nokia is selling the 520 for about $180 overseas, so the 521 should be similar.

That's because people were complaining about accidental press on the touch buttons.
