Oh, Canada! If you've been looking for a way to hop onto the Windows Phone bandwagon for cheap, then look no further than your local Rogers, Koodo, or Telus store. Nokia has announced that these three Canadian carriers have just picked up the Nokia Lumia 520.
The ever-affordable Lumia 520 is available starting today on Rogers for free with a three year contract or $199.99 outright. If Koodo is more your flavor, the 520 official launches there on May 9th for $150 without a contract or free on contract (though in reality you can already order one). And if your carrier of choice is Telus, you'll be able to pick up the 520 for $149 with a pre-paid plan.
As a refresher, the Lumia 520 comes with a 5 megapixel camera, a dual-core 1 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 512 MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage (augmentable with a microSD card). This is all topped with a 4-inch 480x800 IPS LCD display (with handy Super Sensitive Touch for gloved smartphone use in the Great White North), though all three carriers will only be carrying the Lumia 520 in black. If black isn't your color, the 520's back is removable and can be swapped out for a different one - white, red, and yellow will be available in stores (though it seems the blue we've seen won't be). And, of course, all of the Nokia custom software is on board, including Cinemagraph and the Nokia HERE collection of apps.
So what do you think, Canada, is an inexpensive Nokia Lumia 520 on Rogers, Telus, or Koodo just the Windows Phone you've been looking for?
