Nokia Lumia 521 to launch on T-Mobile early on April 24th

Earlier this month, T-Mobile announced it would start selling the Windows Phone 8-based Nokia Lumia 521 sometime in May in the U.S. in its own stores along with Walmart and Microsoft Store locations. Now a new report claims that T-Mobile will start selling this smartphone a bit earlier than May.

TmoNews.com reports that they have received a leaked document from T-Mobile that shows the smartphone as going on sale on April 24th. The smartphone, a variant of the Nokia Lumia 520, will have a four-inch screen, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of storage, a five megapixel camera and support for 720p HD video recording. Pricing for the Lumia 521 has yet to be revealed, but it is expected to be on the low end of Windows Phone smartphones.

The same report also claims that the Nokia Lumia 810, which T-Mobile put on sale in November as one of its two debut Windows Phone 8 products, has apparently reached its EOL (End of Life) stage and will officially be taken out of T-Mobile's smartphone lineup in May. This would seem to confirm the earlier reports which showed that the Lumia 810 was only available for sale on its website as a refurbished version.

I think this phone is great. My mum saw Nokia Drive (why did they change it to "HERE" drive -.-??) and she LOVED IT. I'm going to suggest she gets this because it does everything she needs, and the price is ok for her (she wouldn't justify the $600 for a 920 for example).

There is PLENTY of room in the market for an affordable, yet still highly functional, phone =)

only 512mb of ram|? what the? 1gb should be standard

This isn't a high end phone. And quite frankly I'm sure it'll run just fine with it's 512MB for most users. Some things might take a few extra seconds to load but overall it should give you the same fluid experience that all Lumia devices have.

Nokia now knows that they can't make large profits just by selling expensive smartphones. This phone is good but not great I would go for 720.

If I have to choose between mid range android and windows phone I would choose windows(lumia) because I am bored with android.

Wow how many types of lumias are there?

5, from the 520 to the 920. I don't count custom carrier spinoffs like the 521 or the 810/822 etc.
