T-Mobile to pass on Nokia's newest models

T-Mobile to pass on Nokia's newest models
Considering that the Nokia Lumia 520 and its U.S. twin, the T-Mobile branded Nokia Lumia 521, are the top selling Windows Phone 8 models in the world, you'd expect T-Mobile to be more receptive to new Nokia devices. Yet, the recent introduction of new Nokia Lumia models left the nation's fourth largest carrier shut out.

The new models included the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, which is coming as an exclusive to AT&T. The Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet is heading to both AT&T and Verizon. And the latter will be eventually offering the highly spec'd 5 inch Nokia Lumia 929. So where is T-Mobile? A published report cites a source as saying that the carrier did not want to get involved in these new releases.

Perhaps T-Mobile would rather stick with what is working, which means waiting for the low-end Nokia Lumia 525. This is an unannounced, entry level Windows Phone 8 handset that provides an upgrade over the Noki Lumia 520 and the Nokia Lumia 521. And based on how well T-Mobile is doing with the Lumia 521, it sounds like something that would be right in T-Mobile's wheelhouse.
