Nokia's most affordable Windows Phone 8 smartphone
TORONTO, May 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Nokia today announced that the Nokia Lumia 520
will be available to Canadians across three carriers, including Rogers, Koodo
and TELUS. This innovative and affordable smartphone offers free navigation
and exclusive digital lenses, features normally found in high-end smartphones.
The Nokia Lumia 520's 5-megapixel autofocus camera uses the same digital
camera lenses as those on the flagship Nokia Lumia 920. The Cinemagraph lens
adds simple animations to still photographs, while Smart Shoot creates a
single, perfect shot from multiple images, even removing unwanted objects from
the picture. The Panorama lens provides an easy way to capture
super-wide-angled photos of any beautiful scene.
It packs a punch with the 1 GHz dual-core SnapDragon S4 processor, making it
possible to share photos and any other content at very-fast speeds. There is
also plenty of room to store photos, with 8GB internal memory - double most
smartphones in this price range - and support for micro SD cards up to 64GB.
What's more, the sensitive 4-inch touchscreen allows you to use the phone even
with gloves on or with your fingernails.
"By offering better experiences at a more affordable price, the Nokia Lumia
520 is a perfect phone for Canadians wanting a taste of some of that high-end
innovation that Nokia is known for without the high price tag," said Matt
Rothschild, Vice President, Nokia North America.
The smartphone also provides free access to the world's best maps and location
experiences, including HERE Maps, HERE Drive and HERE Transport. These
applications offer extensive mapping services such as search, satellite,
journey planner for public transit, downloadable maps for offline use, and
