First Look: T-Mobile’s Nokia Lumia 521

T-Mobile previewed its new budget Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 521 just over a week ago on the Home Shopping Network. And while this $150 phone (that’s without a contract) won’t hit stores until May 11, we have one for an early look. Here are some of our early unboxing pictures, including some side-by-side comparisons with T-Mobile’s older Windows Phone 7-based Lumia 710.

We’ll have more information in the coming weeks as we put this thing through the paces.
