Nokia Lumia 521 officially coming to T-Mobile
With the introduction of the Nokia Lumia 520, we did tell you that it was expected that T-Mobile would pick up the model as the Nokia Lumia 521. We can now tell you that this is official as the nation's fourth largest carrier released a statement, saying that the Nokia Lumia 521 would offer "a range of high-end features at an affordable price." Whatever that affordable price is will have to wait as the carrier said that pricing and availability will be released at a future date.

While the phone might indeed offer some high-end features, the specs are decidedly not in that zip-code. We're talking about a 4 inch ClearBlack, SuperSensitive Touch display with resolution of 480 x 800 which works out to a pixel density of 235ppi, a far cry below the 320ppi-468ppi range that today's high-end models sport. A dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor is under the hood while just 512MB of RAM is aboard. While 8GB of storage comes on the handset, a microSD slot is available to expand the amount of storage on the device. On back is a 5MP camera that captures video in 720p at 30 fps. There is no flash for the camera on back and there also is no front-facing camera on the handset. The battery weighs in at 1430mAh.

We will have to see how T-Mobile decides to price this, although there is speculation that it could be free with a two-year contract. The Nokia Lumia 520 is priced at 139 EUR ($184 USD) before taxes. That would be a great deal considering that features like Cinemagraph and Panorama would be included as well as the same digital lens found on the Nokia Lumia 920.
