It was just last week that the Nokia Lumia 520 went on sale as an AT&T GoPhone. The entry-level smartphone was introduced at insanely low price of $99. Un-freaking-subsidized. Not to be outdone, Amazon is now giving it to potential customers for just $90 with free shipping, though you'll have to wait for it to ship in a couple of weeks...
It’s crazy to think that $90 will get you a 4-inch WVGA display, 8GB of internal storage, 512MB of RAM, and a 1GHZ dual-core Snapdragon processor. Topping it off you have Windows Phone that doesn’t struggle on the specs and performs quite well. Compare it to any Android device in the same price category and you’ll see why Nokia’s plan to attack the low-end market will pay off in the long run. Which you can already see happening with the Lumia 520 in places like Finland.
So, which one of you is going to grab the Lumia 520 or refer friends/family to it?
