Nokia Lumia 521 comes to T-Mobile in May

At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Nokia unveiled its entry-level Windows Phone 8 handset -- the Lumia 520 -- which will run for $185 before any applicable taxes. And today T-Mobile announced that it will carry a branded variant of the smartphone, dubbed the Lumia 521.

Like its international sibling, the Lumia 521 comes with a 4.0-inch display, which T-Mobile says is "super sensitive, a 5MP back-facing camera with auto-focus and 720p video recording and the usual Nokia software add-ons.

That means users will get access to Nokia collection in the app store, which features Burton, Cinemagraph, Creative Studio, HERE City Lens, HERE Drive, Here Maps, HERE Transit, Panorama, PhotoBeamer, Smart Shoot and other exclusive software.

T-Mobile announced that the Lumia 521 will be available starting in May from Microsoft and T-Mobile retail stores and Walmart. The mobile operator says that other details, such as price and exact date of availability, will be announced later on.
