The already best selling Nokia Lumia 520 is about to get another acceleration in sales due the upcoming deals. Amazon is now selling Nokia Lumia 520 for $59.99, down from its regular price of $99.99. Apart from Amazon, TigerDirect will be offering Nokia Lumia 520 for $59.99 from this Friday.
I think Lumia 520 with 4-inch IPS display, a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera Offline GPS and a Snapdragon S4 processor is a great deal for $59.99. What do you think?

Amazon has quite a few apps available on Windows Phone, including a Kindle app and Amazon Mobile. It seems we will soon be able to add a much in demand app to the list, with Amazon, apparently in response to user demand, saying they are working on an Amazon Instant Video app.
Amazon support writes:
Thanks for suggesting that we add Amazon Instant Video App for Windows Phone and Windows RT.
We are receiving so many requests from our customers to make the Amazon Instant Video app available on Windows Devices. Rest assured our development team is already working on this with Windows guys to make this app available in the near future.
Amazon is the second part of the Netflix/Amazon video streaming duopoly, and it would be great news for Windows Phone to also add that solution to the platform.
Thanks Gaurav for the tip.

The HTC 8X is a pretty fine Windows Phone, despite not having access to all of Nokia’s software tweaks.
Amazon is now offering the sleek Windows Phone 8 handset for only £159, not much more expensive than a Nokia Lumia 520 while offering much better specs.
With only 15 left in stock this deal will be going fast. Find the handset at Amazon here.

The Nokia Lumia 1020, with was introduced at $299.99 on contract on AT&T, is slowly edging to a more palatable price.
The handset is now available on Amazon for $249.99 on contract, with the commitment-free price remaining a pricy $669.99.
The handset is in stock, and I think it is testament to the slow sales of the handset that there were no issues with the device constantly being out of stock such as was the case with the Nokia Lumia 1020. It is however slowly edging into Amazon’s Best Seller list, indicating the price cuts is having an effect.
The handset can be seen at Amazon here.
What do our readers think will be the ideal price to charge for the 41 megapixel handset to boost sales? Let us know below.
I think even by Windows Phone standards the $299 Nokia Lumia 1020 is moving slowly, based on the absence of the initial shortages which seems to plague every significant Windows Phone launch.
A lower price will probably help, making it good news that Amazon.com is edging the price down 10%, from $299.99 to $269.99, of course on contract.
The commitment-free price is actually higher however, at $699.99, but if your goal is to get your hands on the handset as cheaply as possible Amazon, for now, appears to be the place to go.

The Nokia Lumia 521 recently debuted on Amazon, and it seems the handset is receiving a good reception, even at its $186 price point.
In fact the handset is currently sold out on T-Mobile’s website, showing the appeal extends beyond the world’s biggest online store.
Microsoft recently highlighted the success of the Nokia Lumia 520 series, noting it was selling better than any other low-end Windows Phone, including the well-received Nokia Lumia 620.

Amazon has an entry for an accessory bundle for the upcoming but still unannounced Nokia Lumia 928, featuring a case which is clearly designed for those renders that were leaked (right) rather than the Nokia Lumia 920 which has been jimmied in there.
This can be seen by the much larger flash cut-out, presumably for the Xenon flash, and the again much larger speaker hole cut-out.
Current rumours suggest we will see the device debut on Verizon within the next few weeks and certainly before the end on the month.
The accessory bundle can be seen at Amazon here, while it remains up.

Blackberry Z10 fails to break Amazon Top 100 Best Sellers, being outsold by Blackberry Curve and Torch
It seems Windows Phone fans have even less reason to worry about being overtaken by the new Blackberry OS, as the newly launched Blackberry Z10 failed to break even the 100th spot in Amazon’s AT&T Best Seller list.
The list, which is populated by numerous Windows Phones and has the Black Lumia 920 in 4th spot, in fact does have a few Blackberry models – the Blackberry Torch 4G 9810 (currently unavailable) in the 21st spot and the Blackberry Bold 9900 (also unavailable) in the 38th spot.
In fact the first Blackberry you can actually buy is the Blackberry Curve 8520, at 67th spot on the list.
The new Blackberry Z10 is of course available on Amazon, and in stock, for a solid $199 and 48 hours after launch only has 9 (of course glowing) reviews. Pity it is being outsold by the Sony Ericsson W580i, made by a company which does not exist anymore, which hold’s the 100th spot on the list.
Of course one may argue that Blackberry fans had very little need to go online to secure the phone, with plenty of stock available in store, but with many AT&T retailers having between 0-4 handsets available, the lack of shortages either online or in store tells its own story about demand in the USA. With only a 0.9% market share in January, according to Kantar, it seems the new OS and handset did little to improve the situation.
Our readers may wonder why we concern ourselves with the fate of the Canadian OS. The reason is unfortunately sad but true – for Windows Phone to succeed Blackberry has to fail. There can not be two 3rd place operating systems, and many question whether even a 3rd place OS can be viable at all. If Blackberry 10 came storming out of the gate it would have been bad news for Windows Phone – diverting the attention of developers, carriers, the media and buying public.
Fortunately that did not happen, leaving Windows Phone free to continue slowly climbing the market share charts, something which Blackberry has learned over the last few years to only do in reverse.
