    In my opinion the L9 is the best value of the bunch. I guess I just have to get used to the crappy resolution on the 521.
    I know technically the screen resolution isn't that great but I haven't had any complaints while using it. All the Metro stuff looks great on it and I was streaming Netflix yesterday and thought it looked fine. I'm still amazed at how little I feel I'm sacrificing using this as my primary phone... I can't wait to be able to give this phone to a friend when I get my 925 so i can get them hooked on WP8 as well and be able to try out the Rooms feature.

    The last couple of versions don't support this. It has to be rooted.
    Really? Im surprised they removed that... Maybe its now device specific, like unknown sources APK installation was at one time.

    I've dealt with that extensively (moving apps to SD) on an aging Android (~500 MB storage) and out of my app selection, some were movable, some werent. It's a real mess, one I would not want to deal with again. It's a feature on CyanogenMod 9 and 10 for sure, but it doesn't move the entire app, for a more effective method, you'll have to partition the SD and get a 3rd-party tool (e.g. Links2SD)

    Anyway's it's nice to see Wal-Mart pushing it, I'm still skeptical considering my iPod touch 4 was relatively crippled with 256 MB RAM. How big of a deal is the 512MB/1 GB RAM gap? any specific apps for example?

    Every single app I've wanted to download has been available; as far as I can tell, it's games that are going to be the real problem right now. I wanted to get Super Monkey Balls 2 during the red stripe deal thing, but couldn't because of the RAM.

    There is also the Nokia exclusive, Zinio Newsstand, which requires 1GB of ram (though it makes no sense why. I doubt it uses that much ram unless its loading an entire magazine at once instead of only a few pages ahead and behind, in which case that's pointless.)

    Can't even find a Lumia or WP phone on T-mobile website. Microsoft needs to bring more WP to T-mobile, Sprint, and other smaller carriers if they want to gain marketshare.

    I had the L9 briefly . I can't say that is the best value since its likely that Nokia and Microsoft will support the 521....LG already has trouble supporting there high end devices. I can safely bet not much support will be coming from LG OR google for that phone. That alone puts the 521 at a better value for myself personally.

    8x is in limbo (HTC ew...) and 810 has been unofficially EOLed (haven't seen anything official saying they no longer support it. Just know its no longer available online. Brick & Mortar store in-stock sales only). Lumia 521 is officially on T-Mobile the 22nd, with early releases on HSN and at walmart, so of course its not on the site yet. 925 has a coming soon page, but its not in the main phone listing last I looked.
