AT&T brings prepaid Nokia Lumia 520 to GoPhone
AT&T GoPhone allows customers to pickup no-contract phones, including smartphones, on a pre-paid plan. Now the mobile carrier is adding the Nokia Lumia 520 to the program beginning July 26.
The handset, which was announced back in February, has a four-inch screen, 8 GB of storage and is running on a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor.
The U.S. mobile carrier will be offering the Windows Phone 8 handset for only $99 off-contract. "We are excited to launch the first 4G Windows Phone 8 smartphone in our GoPhone portfolio. A diverse device ecosystem benefits everyone, and the addition of an affordable Windows device gives our customers yet another choice that fits their needs", said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president of Devices at AT&T.
The mobile device also comes with the Nokia suite of apps, such as Music, HERE Maps, Drive, and Transit. The phone additionally features other Windows Phone 8 goodies such as Office 2013.
Microsoft claims that "since launching earlier this year, the Lumia 520 has quickly become one of Nokia’s most popular Windows Phone models and it’s not hard to see why". The phone enters a space currently occupied by Android and feature phones.
