HSN Nokia Lumia 521 [hsn.com]

This is a great deal for a solid mid/low-level smartphone. Looks very handsome with tons of bright color options. Tons of colorful accessories. Has great reviews, IMO way better than the android smartphones sold at this price point. The Lumia 521 is the lowest priced windows 8 smartphone yet. Solid phone as a first smartphone, for parents and Kids. A proper smartphone with very few compromises at this price.

if you have a bank of america card and log into BOA's website, you can get $10 off any purchase as well from HSN to sweeten the deal - comes out to $ 139.95 Thanks downluda

Will definitely buy one at this price. Last I heard this was going to be $239. At $150 it's a steal. Might have to upgrade my Dad's Samsung Focus i917 as well.

w00t! 5000th post!

Can I use this phone with all the DROID app's ? It does not has expansion slot, right?
Just about time I can kick Virgin Mobile 3G, $25 a month good for nothing to the curb.

windows phone has its own version of some android apps but definitely not all of them. If there is an app(s) that you need to have, you'd definitely want to check to see if windows phone offers those first. This does have a MicroSD slot according to the specs but you can't store apps on there

without contract, the phone is yours. That is why it is a steal. This phone is a gem - most bang for buck.

It has an expansion slot(64GB). Here are the Specs [phonescoop.com].

Yes, you can use all the apps. It comes with 8 GB of internal memory which you dont get with entry level android phones. Temple run has arrived on wp8, instagram is there as instagraph. You have all the apps that you will need. And, Nokia music remains one of the best features of these Lumia phones.
