So, Finnish handset manufacturer Nokia still has some tricks up their sleeves, constantly maintaining a careful balance between a high end model, the mid-range market, while ensuring that the entry level segment as well as emerging countries will also be able to enjoy their fair share of basic communications devices. The mid-range Nokia Lumia 520 that is powered by Windows Phone 8 for a surprisingly affordable price tag of under $200 unlocked was introduced yesterday, and it is nice to see that the device had already arrived over at the FCC for approval.

The Nokia Lumia 520 is also known as model RM-914, where it will carry a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor alongside a 4-inch 800 x 480 IPS display and a 1,430mAh battery. Of course, there will be no 4G LTE connectivity in this puppy, but at least you will be able to enjoy different WCDMA and HSPA+ frequencies, with an appearance happening later this quarter being in the works. Stay tuned! You know something? The Lumia 520 certainly seems to do a pretty good job at offering decent performance without breaking the bank, and could be the starting point for your Windows Phone 8 journey.
