T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 521 launching in May
T-Mobile USA has unveiled that its Nokia Lumia 521 would be available starting next month (May). The new Windows Phone 8 device will be offered via its own channels, Walmart, and Microsoft Retail stores. Pricing details have not been announced yet, but customers should expect the handset to be cheap.
As you probably already know, the Lumia 521 is exclusive to T-Mobile. Even so, it resembles the Nokia Lumia 520 (which was just released in the UK) a lot, hence it offers: a 4 inch IPS display with 800 x 480 pixels, 4G (HSPA+, not LTE), Nokia Drive, Nokia Music, Cinemagraph, 1.2MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss lens, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1430 mAh battery, and MicroSD card support (up to 64GB).
We don’t know if the Lumia 521 will be available in other colors than the one pictured above.
Another new Nokia WP8 device that’s headed to T-Mobile USA is the Lumia Catwalk (that’s just a codename). This should feature a 4.5 inch OLED display with 1280 x 768 pixels, 8.7MP rear camera, 1GB of RAM, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 16GB of internal memory, and a 2,000 mAha battery. The Catwalk might be officially announced on May 15, and it could go on sale starting late June, or early July.
