The Nokia Lumia 520 now available in Canada

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 
more. 
The Nokia Lumia 520 will be launching in black. However, customers can easily 
match the phone to their personal style with exchangeable covers in yellow, 
red and white available at local retail stores. 
The Nokia Lumia 520 is available today at Rogers (please visit rogers.com for 
full pricing details). The device is also available at Koodo on May 9(th) in 
black for $150 or $0 on the tab. On May 17(th), it will be available at TELUS 
in black for $149 with a TELUS pre-paid plan.
