While early reports had the Nokia Lumia 521 launch over at T-Mobile on April 24th, that date has come and gone with no new Windows Phone in sight. The reason, T-Mobile will now launch the Lumia 521 on April 27th during HSN.com's Innovation Weekend. You'll need to check local listings for showtimes.
The Windows Phone 8 device will be bundled with a car charger and screen protector during the event for $149.99 with free shipping with a flex pay option available.
Following the HSN debut, the Lumia 521 will be available at Microsoft Retail Stores and Walmart beginning May 11th. The Lumia 521 will run $149 through the Microsoft Retail Stores (not sure about online availability) and available through Wal-Mart's exclusive T-Mobile no contract $30 per month unlimited web and text plans.
The Lumia 521, a custom variant of the Lumia 520, packs a mild 4” 800 x 480 display, 512RAM, 8GB storage,a microSD slot, 5MP camera with 720p video recording, 9.9mm thick and HSPA+ 21Mbps connectivity.
We are being told that the Lumia 521 will be available at T-Mobile retail stores soon. More than likely a few weeks after Wal-Mart and the Microsoft Store enjoy a little exclusiveness.
Here's T-Mobile's presser on the release.
