Microsoft wants to fill Walmart's with cheap Lumia smartphones

Microsoft wants to help Windows Phone sales by pumping Walmart stores with cheap Nokia Lumia handsets

Windows Phone isn't doing too well against iOS and Android, we all know that, but Microsoft is obviously working on a plan to push Windows Phone into more consumers' hands.

This plan, according to AllThingsD, is to sell the super-cheap Nokia Lumia 521 in huge numbers at Walmart. Selling them in large numbers will require a cheap price, so how does $150 off contract sound? Considering the iPhone and Galaxy S4 both sell for around $200 or so, on a two-year contract, the Lumia 521 at $150 outright would be quite a steal.

 

The Lumia 521 features a 4-inch 800x480-pixel display, dual-core 1GHz processor and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.
