The device will run on T-Mobile’s “4G Network”, but sadly this will not be 4G LTE. Additionally, the device will not have flash with its’ rear facing camera.

All in all, this is a pretty solid budget device. While no pricing has been given, it is expected to cost around $200 with no contract. As far as availability, the Nokia Lumia 521 will be available “through Walmart, Microsoft Retail Stores and T-Mobile retail channels.”
