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.

THIS IS LUMIA
But. If you really wanted a list of the specs and not just to yell "OMG 512 RAM THIS SUCKS".. Here you go :)
There's a Phone Arena video review up on YouTube, for the Lumia 620 (that packs in the same RAM size as the Lumia 521), where the reviewer states that gaming on the 620 is compromised and laggy, since most of the best games on WP8 need about 1GB of RAM to run well.
Couple hours later, someone else posts it, and it's front page. I was really angry at myself. Lol.
No one knows if the phone is selling lke hot-cakes since it's not clear how many people were actually able to buy the phone from Walmart or if walmart even sold a single one. Out-of-stock doesn't always mean it was sold.
Also, Walmart phone description says this has FFC. Obviously mistake. Wonder how many people may return the phone(if anyone actually purchased one) knowing that it doesn't have FFC(and made their purchase decision based on Walmart's phone description.
Look at this chart. 520 is already running away with the race.. I am sure it may be stock issues but there is a lot of stock being sold though.
