Nokia Lumia 520 lands at FCC with AT&T friendly bands

Nokia Lumia 520 lands at FCC with AT&T friendly bands
Although AT&T has never mentioned anything about carrying the Nokia Lumia 520, the smartphone might one day land on the carrier's shelves. Or at least that's what we're inclined to believe now that a Nokia Lumia 520 variant with AT&T-friendly 3G bands has been spotted at the FCC. This particular device carriers the model name RM-915, meaning that it's different from the RM-914 model, which is tailored for Europe and Asia. 

For those who need a refresher, the Nokia Lumia 520 got unveiled at MWC and is touted to be the company's most affordable Windows Phone 8 handset to date. But despite its low price, there are some neat features in its arsenal, such as the SuperSensitive touchscreen and a load of software pre-loaded by its maker. You can learn more about it by reading our Nokia Lumia 520 hands-on

The Nokia Lumia 520 is bound to launch internationally in April, meaning that if AT&T is really going to offer the device, it might release it around that time. A variant of it is headed to T-Mobile bearing the Lumia 521 moniker and (presumably) a low price tag.

USD $199 and you get duo core processor, 4-inch IPS screen, 8GB expandable, lag-free performance; there is no deal better than this, not even those cheap Chinese knock-off phones. There is no Android from Sammy, LG, or HTC at this price range that gives you this kind of specs with lag free experience. I couldnt be bothered by chinese brands like Huawei and ZTE. The phone budget seekers should go for, or it can be a capable back up or 2nd phone.

Exactly at least has a flash on the camera that alone makes it better to me it & the 720 are better.

Nokia really is covering all areas.. I am up for one of my upgrades in July so it will be interesting to see what comes out in the way of flagship phones for Nokia.

Andrea how about using verbs when you type.. You say cheap plastic on the Lumia line? Really? So is the majority of all mfg cheap? There is a Korean brand that might offer cheap plastic but not the fins

Well, Samsung use cheap plastic on their phones because all the expensive and quality plastic are reserved for cosmetic surgery. Well, you know, Korea,,, :D

Baffles me though why they would not include a flash for the camera on this & the 521. Would it really make it that much more expensive.. That has become a must for me. There touting the camera lenses on this model, yet it's pretty much gonna be pointless in low light indoor night shots etc. =Fail
