tmo-fcc-520Nokia’s most affordable Windows Phone 8 device in the market to date is the Nokia Lumia 520, which is the moniker that it is called worldwide, but if you so happen to reside in the US of A and are a T-Mobile subscriber, then be prepared to pick it up as the Nokia Lumia 521 from that part of the world. While no specific release date for the Lumia 521 has been shared just yet, its official release should not be too far away from the horizon, as the Lumia 521, going by the model number RM-917, has just picked up FCC approval earlier today.

Of course it does not come as a surprise to us that the Lumia 521 will feature AWS connectivity, and it will, in all probability, be marketed as a 4G HSPA+ capable device. Just for a refresher, this entry level Windows Phone 8 device comes with a 4” display at 800 x 480 resolution, dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n connectivity, A-GPS, Bluetooth 3.0 support, all running on a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm processor, Adreno 305 GPU, carrying a 5-megapixel shooter at the back, 512MB RAM, a microSD memory card slot to augment the 8GB of internal memory, and a 1,430 mAh battery.
