T-Mobile to offer Nokia Lumia 521 on April 27th via Home Shopping Network
A tweet from T-Mobile reveals that the Nokia Lumia 521 is going to be launched on April 27th. So far, nothing unusual about that. But the tweet goes on to add that the handset will be offered on Saturday on...the Home Shopping Network. The purveyor of  jewelry, dolls and collectables will be selling the phone for $149.95 bundled with a car charger and screen protector.

That is not to say that the device won't be offered by more traditional outlets. Microsoft's retail chain will have the phone priced at $149 and Walmart will have the phone priced at the same amount with T-Mobile's $30 no contract unlimited web and text plan. This price is the full retail price of the handset and does not require a signed contract.

The Nokia Lumia 521 offers a 4 inch Clear Black display, a WVGA resolution and a 235ppi pixel density. A dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor is under the hood while 512MB of RAM is aboard. 8GB of native storage is inside the device, which can be expanded using the microSD slot on the model. A flashless 5MP camera sits on the back, able to capture video at 720p. Lastly, a 1430mAh battery is powering the device. Nokia Music, Cinemagraph, Smart Shoot, HERE Drive, Nokia Maps and Nokia Transit are all pre-installed on the phone.

I might have picked one up one had they included a flash for the camera! That's still a puzzle to me that they left that off. Ill stick with my Optimus l9

Ya of course I know that :) It's just still funny to me they tout the camera yet leave off a flash for it. That's become a staple for me. This will be pretty useless in low light indoor night shots etc. Like I said ill stick w my L9

Yes, you are right here. The low light photos would be... they won't be! :))) I guess, the prce tag of only $150 makes the reason of not putting LED. read this: ubergizmo.com/2013/04/nokia-lumia-smartphones-shar​e-same-profit-margin-as-26-nokia-105/

I wonder how much it really drives up the cost if they would have included one..
