The Nokia Lumia 520 is on sale from Amazon now, for $99.99
The most popular Windows Phone handset, with over 12 million active units, is the Nokia Lumia 520. The entry-level model is now available on sale, as part of Amazon's "Lightning Deals." These are special offers with deep-discounts, for a limited period of time. For $99.99, you can purchase an unlocked Nokia Lumia 520 in Yellow. That is a $20 savings (or 17%) from Amazon's regular price for the phone.

The Nokia Lumia 520 comes sporting Windows Phone 8, but is being updated to Windows Phone 8.1. That means the phone will support Cortana whenever the personal assistant rolls out from region to region. The handset offers a 4 inch IPS LCD screen with resolution of 480 x 800, for a pixel density of 233ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus CPU with the Adreno 305 GPU crunching the graphics. 512MB of RAM is inside, along with 8GB of native storage. Those needing additional memory can use the 64GB capacity microSD slot on board the device. On the back of the phone is a 5MP snapper sans flash. The Lumia 520 also does not offer a front-facing camera. A 1430mAh battery keeps the lights on.

We've seen the Lumia 520, and its T-Mobile branded brother (Nokia Lumia 521) on sale at various prices over the last year, and the phone usually sells out. If you are interested in purchasing the Nokia Lumia 520, you might want to take advantage of this deal now.

I agree. E has much better display and more RAM. Also feels more premium to the hand.

Facts are facts. 512MB WP phones lag -- and it'll be even worse with WP 8.1.

Fact are fact WP low end devices runs like a dream compared to its Android counterparts. Android is even going so far to make Android one to take on low end WP devices. WP 512 MB are smoother than one GB smartphones.

Are you saying this from your experience or from the experience from someone else? As an Android, iOS and Windows Phone user, my 512MB Windows Phone 8.1 device doesn't lag or have resuming issues as some suggest. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=db0EkwzVUfE http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lWxSf_Nn1uA

Or, if you must buy a phone from the dark side, the Nokia 520 prepaid for ATT for $40. The 520 really isn't worth anything close to $100.

The 520 mentioned in the article is a carrier unlocked phone, not one locked to ATT or another carrier.

The ATT Gophone Nokia 520 can be used on BYOP on Straight Talk, Net10, Consumer Cellaur, Cricket. So it's not locked to one carrier.
