Lumia 521 on offer for $130 at Walmart, selling like hotcakes

The Lumia 521 from Nokia is on sale on the Walmart website for just $129.99, but has sold out almost immediately. The deal was covered on SlickDeals with subsequent updates that the online store reported the Windows Phone to be out of stock. The Lumia 521 is proving to be a popular device indeed.

It shouldn't come as such a surprise with the low price and brand name pretty much selling the product to consumers. A Windows Phone 8 device for under $150? One word: bargain. While stock levels dwindle over at Walmart, the Home Shopping Network has once again got some units in stock and ready to ship. The network is selling the Windows Phone for $150.

Be sure to keep an eye on the Walmart website for when the device is available once again.
