If you want a super cheap price on a no-contract Windows Phone smartphone, then you might want to check out the Microsoft Store website as they currently have the T-Mobile Lumia 521 on sale for just $49.
Normally the phone costs $69 so this reduced price is a pretty sweet deal, and best of all there are no "after rebate" conditions for this special deal. Just a reminder: The Lumia 521 from T-Mobile features a 1.0 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 512 MB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage, a 4-inch IPS LCD display at 480 x 800 pixel resolution, a 5MP camera on back with no front-facing camera, and microSD support.
The Microsoft Store webpage says the phone is "Windows Phone 8.1 ready". You can go ahead and download the Developer Preview version of the OS for the Lumia 521 or you can wait for the OTA update. T-Mobile will sell the Lumia 521's direct successor, the Lumia 530, later this year.
