Consumers who are searching for a device to purchase during the Christmas holidays can head to Walmart and check out the offer on the T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 521 smartphone. The GSMArena reports Walmart currently sells the Windows Phone handset at $79.95 outright price without a contract.

The Walmart product page shows the purchasing details for the Nokia Lumia 521 4G smartphone. However, it has not been confirmed if the Nokia Lumia 521 being offered is SIM-locked to T-Mobile or not so those who are not subscribed to T-Mobile are recommended to double check first before taking advantage of the low-priced smartphone deal.

The Nokia Lumia 521, T-Mobile's version of the Nokia Lumia 520, became a sellout at $199.99 off-contract price on the U.S. carrier. The Finnish device could be found as well at other retailers like Walmart or the Home Shopping Network with the inexpensive price tag.  

In the Latinos Post report, the Nokia Lumia 521 was declared out of stock on Monday, December 9, at Amazon but the orders were still accepted with the estimated shipping date on Friday, December 13. The Windows Phone handset was initially listed at Amazon with $94.97 price and the latest offer lists the $79.95 price compared to the original price tag of $149.99.

The Nokia Lumia 521 can also be purchased online at the Microsoft Store for $99 price while T-Mobile offers the Nokia device with the full retail price of $126 at the carrier's official Web site. The $0 up front offer requires the T-Mobile customers to pay $5.25 for the next 24 months.

If the customer decides to cancel the wireless service, the remaining balance on the Windows Phone 8 handset will be due. The Nokia Lumia 521 has a 4-inch screen display with 800x480p resolution, 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and 8GB internal storage capacity that can be expanded up to 64GB through the microSD card slot.

Other features and specs include the Windows Phone 8 operating system with Lumia Amber update, 5MP camera with 720p HD video recording and 1430mAh battery. The Nokia Lumia 521 will be receiving the Windows Phone 8 GDR3 update with Lumia Black as well as the upgrade to Windows Phone 8.1 that Microsoft has guaranteed bringing to the existing Windows Phone 8-running handsets.
