As we noted yesterday the Nokia Lumia 520 is probably the best value for money Windows Phone device currently available in the UK:
The Lumia 510 remains Nokia's cheapest Windows Phone device on the high street, but there's a strong argument to be made that the Lumia 520 is better overall value. Not only does it run Windows Phone 8, but fewer compromises have been made in its hardware specifications (e.g. 8GB internal memory, better performance, ability to run all but a handful of games), and it is more future-proof than the 510.
This is a pattern of competitive pre-pay and contract pricing is something we will see repeated in other markets. Like its sister device, the Lumia 720, the Lumia 520 is now available in multiple European and Asian markets, with more to follow over the next few weeks. Inevitably, in some markets, launch pricing (i.e. a small premium) is present, but we expect this to disappear over the next few months.
