T-Mobile USA has unveiled that its Nokia Lumia 521 would be available starting next month (May). The new Windows Phone 8 device will be offered via its own channels, Walmart, and Microsoft Retail stores. Pricing details have not been announced yet, but customers should expect the handset to be cheap.
As you probably already know, the Lumia 521 is exclusive to T-Mobile. Even so, it resembles the Nokia Lumia 520 (which was just released in the UK) a lot, hence it offers: a 4 inch IPS display with 800 x 480 pixels, 4G (HSPA+, not LTE), Nokia Drive, Nokia Music, Cinemagraph, 1.2MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss lens, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1430 mAh battery, and MicroSD card support (up to 64GB).Read more

T-Mobile has announced that it will be partnering up with Nokia to bring the Nokia Lumia 521 to the United States around May. It’s aimed at the entry-level market, meaning it will most likely be extremely affordable for those who want to take advantage of T-Mobile’s brand new, contract-free value plans and its monthly phone payment options. While T-Mobile hasn’t released the pricing for the Nokia Lumia 521, we imagine the monthly payments to be very cheap.
So what kind of specs can you expect with the Nokia Lumia 521? Well it has a 4-inch 800 x 480 resolution super sensitive display, meaning it can still read your touch inputs even if you’re wearing gloves. It has a 1GHz dual-core procesor, 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot for expandable storage, 512MB RAM, 5MP rear-facing camera capable of shooting 720p video, and of course it’ll run on the Windows Phone 8 OS.Read more

An August 2011 model BlackBerry Curve 9320 got us Rs 7,000 off on the purchase of a brand new Apple iPhone 4. A newer and costlier phone would have got us an even better deal. This is Apple’s aggressive new ‘Buy Back’ scheme launched across various stores in NCR. By exchanging an old smartphone , you can now buy an iPhone 4 for just Rs 19,500.
As per the scheme, all smartphones, even brands like Micromax, Lava and Karbonn, can get you a minimum Rs 7,000 off on the purchase of the iPhone 4 model. All the customer needs to do is fill a Buy Back form and pay the remaining amount through card. Apple’s EMI scheme is available along with the new Buy Back offer.
The offer started late last week and has already started pushing up the sales of Apple’s 2010 model. Even today Apple has splashed front page ads in some dailies. Read more

If you are getting ready for a new phone you could be considering the Apple iPhone 5 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as they are both flagship devices. So which one might be right for you?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has Android Jelly Bean, while the Apple iPhone 5 comes with iOS 6. Both of great and each comes with pros and cons. iOS 6 is the most stable and it is easy to use. iOS devices that are second hand sell well too. The App Store comes with finished apps and there is more than at Google Play. The App Store apps come with cost while over at the Google Play Store they are free, if you don’t mind ads.
Android is always being updated and Jelly Bean was a big jump. However it can be confusing to learn, but it is worth it in the end. iOS are very simple and updates are easy, but on the downside it is restrictive.Read more

Starting next month, mobile provider Digicel Group will sell its own Android smartphone, the Digicel DL600, in an apparent attempt to grow and monetise Internet usage.
It’s Digicel’s first branded phone using the Android operating system developed by large US-based search provider Google, but not the first mobile phone to wear the telecoms’ brand. The first were issued six years ago.
“While this is the first Android smartphone to be branded Digicel, we also released the Coral range of handsets in 2007,” said Group Commercial Director, Brian Finn in response to Financial Gleaner queries sent via its communications department.Read more

It was recently revealed that US mobile telecommunications network Verizon will launch a social gaming software built into the smartphones that they sell. The platform that the portal will be running on is the ever popular Playphone.
The question that comes to mind when you find out about this is why didn’t Google think about it before? The answer might plague me a bit but I think it’s because Larry and Sergei were a bit too busy to notice that people used Android to do a lot more than just play Angry Birds. That’s not for me to discuss.
The truth of the matter is that anyone with a smartphone was, and still is, able to download the Playphone app from the Google playstore but Verizon did the imaginable. Yes, the imaginable. The Verizon team felt that it would be easier for the phone to come with the app pre-installed so as to make it easier for the user to start it up as opposed to buying it from the playstore and fumbling from one screen to another just so that you can try and set it up.Read more

The Canvas HD A116 remains the undisputed champion in the sub-Rs 15,000 price bracket and we know that for a fact because Micromax isn’t able to keep up with the demand of the phone.
