Nokia Lumia 520


Today Nokia officially announced the Lumia 720 and 520 handsets at MWC in Barcelona, Spain.

The two new Lumia devices run Windows Phone 8 and while the 520 covers the lower end of the market, the 720 should be a mid range device. The Lumia 520 is said to be the most affordable Windows Phone 8 device, with indicated price starting at around £120 (~$180) before taxes and subsidies.

The Nokia Lumia spec sheet is as follows:
  • Operating System: Windows Phone 8
  • Networks: WCDMA 900/2100, 850/1900/2100, GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900
  • Speed: 3G HSPA+ (21Mbps)
  • Memory: 512 MB RAM, 8 GB mass memory, support for microSD cards up to 64GB, 7GB free SkyDrive storage
  • Display: 4” IPS LCD WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) 16M colors, 2D hardened glass, super sensitive touch for fingernail and glove use
  • Processor: 1 GHz Dual Core Snapdragon™
  • Camera: 5Mpix autofocus, video recording HD 720p 30fps
  • Size: 119.9 x 64 x 9.9 mm* (*volume thickness)
  • Weight: 124g
  • Connectivity: WLAN IEEE802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, Integrated A-GPS, 3.5 mm audio connector, Micro USB with charging, USB 2.0 High Speed
  • Battery: 1430mAh
  • Audio: single digital microphone, 3.5mm AV connector, MP3 player
  • Colours: Yellow, red, cyan, white and black
    Talk time: up to 9.6 hours (on 3G)
  • Standby time: up to 360 hours
Interestingly the 4" touchscreen can be used with nails or gloves on, using similar tech to the one used in the Lumia 920. There have been some trade offs to keep the price low though: the camera lacks flash and there is no front facing camera.

Are you thinking about buying this affordable Windows Phone 8 device? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
