Nokia Lumia 520 available from just just €129 in Ireland
Just as the Lumia 521 is selling away in the US, the Lumia 520 is now available in Ireland for a low price of just €129. O2 Ireland even has a deal open for just €109, but has since sold out. Either Nokia is once again having issues with producing enough units or we're seeing signs that the Lumia 520 is going to perform rather well.
If you're in Ireland and are looking for a new Windows Phone, you may want to check out the Lumia 520. Vodafone and Meteor also have the Nokia device listed.

I think that's an awesomely smart move for WP.
I think we are in the beginnings of a global Nokia surge with WP8. At the beginning of the year, people were writing Nokia's epitaph and also doing the same for WP. At the end of the year the surge in both will be a major story and we'll hear about what an ingenius move the Nokia to WP decision was for both MS and Nokia.
I know I LOVE my Nokia 822, though I may buy a 928 when that comes. But my experience with Nokia is beyond excellent. I have no interest in any other phonemaker at this point. Nokia has got me as a loyal customer.
and I don't think that there is a shortage because the new ad duplex numbers show that the #1 phone is now the 520 and its not been out very long. which only tells me that its selling extreamly well.
Sold out on the HSN and now at Walmart in just a few hrs. For a Windows phone 8 that runs way better than any android 3.0 or earler its a very good price. and it will also be getting the windows blue update.
I would love to see this phone on all the little phone carriers in the US. this would be the #1 selling phone. People on MetroPCS are there because its cheep and the cheap androids that they sell are Really JUNK.. for more than 125..
Once the no-app reputation has gone away and the market share becomes suitabily high, developing the latest apps becomes a given rather than a hand me down.
Me and my wife when to dinner last night and she has a yellow 920 and the waitress said to her WOW you have that phone. She said it looks so easy to use. and asked her if she liked it and of course she said YES I love it.
She said she has a droid but likes the look of the windows phones. there is defenetly more and more people getting windows phone but they are getting more androids too . we just need the people in the stores to push the windows phones more..they are not helping.
