The Nokia Lumia 520 and Lumia 521 are currently on sale on Amazon US. The two Windows Phones are Nokia's most affordable smartphones running Microsoft's mobile platform. The main difference between the two are the mobile operators - one being AT&T and the other on T-Mobile. Head on past the break to see the deals and pick up your own.

Update: Both phones are currently unavailable. Hopefully Amazon opens up more stock for orders later in the day.

Nokia is currently sponsoring drama on Channel 4 here in the UK. This campaign covers the popular TV show Homeland and the Finnish manufacturer has tasked consumers to send in their most dramatic shots on Twitter, using the hashtag #nokia4drama.

To get more folks involved in the run up to Christmas, Nokia is asking everyone to tweet in their "Christmas S-elfie' to be eligible for a chance to appear on TV.  Not only will you grow a following with your dramatic expression aired on TV, but there's a Lumia Windows Phone (hint: Lumia 1020) up for grabs too.

If you have a PureView Windows Phone (Lumia 920, Lumia 1020, Lumia 1520, etc.), chances are you've been enjoying the Nokia Camera app. But folk who own a Lumia Windows Phone that does not sport PureView camera technology have not been able to enjoy the same experience. That is until now.

Nokia previously stated at its conference in Abu Dhabi that all Lumia Windows Phones would soon be able to be loaded with Nokia Camera, not just handsets in the 92x series or higher. The company has today released a beta version of its popular camera app that includes support for more hardware. The only requirement is either the Nokia Amber or Nokia Black firmware update (according to Nokia's website).

Target is having Nokia’s best-selling Windows Phone 8 device in their stores next week for just $59.99. Let us remind you that’s the price without signing a two-year contract.

Set up in 2006, the Chennai factory is one of their largest manufacturing units employing 5800 people and producing 200 million phones a year.

One of the big selling points in buying a Lumia Windows Phone, besides the unique and excellent design, is the customer support that Nokia offers. Whether they have had issues with firmware, a defective unit or just general feedback, the Finnish company has always treated their customers with respect. That hands-on sincerity has not gone unnoticed by many and it’s something that Samsung could learn a thing or two about.

Recently, an owner of a Galaxy S4 claimed that his phone caught fire during the battery charging process. The video was posted on YouTube and it quickly went viral. To be fair to Samsung, such events are super rare and are always plausible with electronics. There’s no indication that this is widespread event. Rather, it looks to be an isolated case of some defective hardware.

Do you want a Nokia device running Android? According to The Verge, Nokia has been building it under the code name, Normandy. It runs a forked version of Android on some really low-end hardware similar to what Amazon does with the Kindle Fire.

The Verge’s sources say:

Normandy is designed as an Asha equivalent to push low-cost devices with access to more traditional smartphone apps — something the company has struggled to achieve for its Series 40-powered Asha line.
