Nokia Lumia 521

It looks like Amazon is taking a page out of its fellow mega-retailer Walmart's book by dropping the price of the Nokia Lumia 521 to only $130. It comes with free shipping and is eligible for Amazon Prime shipping. So what's the catch? Unfortunately, if you want to snag this hot little number from Amazon, the projected shipping time is 1-3 weeks.

Another week, another unboxing and first impressions! If this didn’t take so much work, we could get used to this many devices coming out (mostly from Nokia).

This week is the low-cost but high-value Lumia 521, T-Mobile svelte variant of the Lumia 520. The phone ranges from just $30 on T-Mo’s “uncontract” to a still super cheap $150 with no strings attached. Do we really need to point out how crazy low that is for a brand spanking new Windows Phone 8 device in 2013?

Head past the break for some luscious shots of the 521 (if I can brag about my camera work) and our unboxing/hands on with the device, along with my initial thoughts.
