Amazon has the Nokia Lumia 521 for $130... if you're not in a hurry to get it

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.

The long wait may actually be a good thing, as it could be due to the large success of the Lumia 521. It sold like gangbusters on Walmart's website, and saw similar demand on HSN. And the reason for that is because, despite the low price, the Lumia 521 is a great device.

The Lumia 521 is T-Mobile's "exclusive" version of the Lumia 520, which has a 4" TFT screen, 512MB RAM and 8GB of storage that is expandable via MicroSD. Its top feature is hands down Wi-Fi calling ability. If you are looking for more info, you can read our full review of the Lumia 521 here.
