Nokia Lumia 520 available at AT&T now (as its cheapest Windows Phone 8 handset). Lumia 625 headed to EE, Vodafone and O2 in the UK
Coming as AT&T’s fist Windows Phone 8 device available to GoPhone users, the Lumia 520 is the carrier’s cheapest Windows-based handset ever. It costs only $99.99, no contract required.
The 520 is similar to T-Mobile’s Lumia 521 (released back in May). Its features include a 4 inch WVGA display, HERE Maps, dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm processor, 521MB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, 5MP rear camera, and a 1,430 mAh battery.
US aside, Nokia’s newly-announced Lumia 625 has been confirmed to arrive in the UK via three networks in September: EE, O2 and Vodafone. The 625 has LTE connectivity, but only EE offers such services in the UK for now – so those who are buying the smartphone from O2 and Vodafone won’t be able to enjoy the speeds of 4G (at least not for the beginning). British customers will also find the Lumia 625 SIM-free – most probably for around £200 (since Nokia’s price before taxes and subsidies was set at €220).
With its 4.7 inch WVGA display, the Lumia 625 is the largest WP handset in Nokia’s portfolio.
The company didn’t mention North America among the markets where the Lumia 625 would be available.
