Though I’ve spotted and taken advantage of a number of gadget deals in my lifetime, most of which I’ve also shared with you, I must admit that I’ve very rarely seen one as crazy as the one I’ll detail in the following. And I mean “crazy” in a good way, of course.
Are you ready for this? No, I’m not joking, be sure you’re sitting and you’ve recently taken your heart medication, because otherwise the shock might be too much. T-Mobile’s Nokia Lumia 521 is available via online retailer HSN for the incredible price of $80.
That’s off-contract, outright or however you want to call it. I like to call it “no strings attached”. Right, but it’s impossible for that to be true, isn’t it? No, it isn’t, with the single small catch being you have to hurry if you’re thinking about scoring the 521, as HSN’s deal is time-limited.
In theory, it should all end tomorrow, on July 20, but in order to get the phone for $80, there’s a coupon code involved and that can expire any minute now. In case you do have the chance to use it, it’s “135235” and slashes 20 bucks off the initial $50 discount (the list price is $150).
Running Windows Phone 8, the Nokia Lumia 521 is in no way a high-end device, but for $80 it sure packs an enormous amount of heat. The screen is an IPS 4-inch unit with 800 x 480 pix res and under the hood there’s a dual-core 1 GHz CPU, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of storage and 1,430 mAh battery. Oh, yeah, and you also get a very nice 5 MP autofocus rear-facing cam. Cra-zy!
