Whether you like it or not, inexpensive devices like the Nokia Lumia 520, 521, and 625 are going to help grow the Windows Phone platform. The Lumia 520 is already the bestselling Windows Phone to date by some measures. Starting tomorrow, you can get the Lumia 521 at MetroPCS here in the United States. Details after the break!
You might not be aware, but MetroPCS is now owned by T-Mobile here in the United States. T-Mobile is selling the Lumia 521, so it was only a matter of time before the device showed up on MetroPCS. It also marks the first time you can get a Windows Phone 8 device on the network. However, unlike the $149 price at T-Mobile, you’ll be able to snag the Lumia 521 for a very compelling $99. Putting it head-to-head against the $99 price of the Lumia 520 on AT&T’s GoPhone.
MetroPCS getting the Lumia 521 was reported a few days back. What can budget minded folks get on the Lumia 521? Besides a very compelling smartphone experience on inexpensive hardware you’ll be looking at a 4.0 inch screen rocking a WVGA (480x800) display. This is running on dual-core 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of storage that you can expand with a microSD card.
Send your friends and family to their nearest MetroPCS store starting tomorrow to get the device. Otherwise it will be available online next week.
Thanks everyone sending this in.
