AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520 launching Nov. 22 for $199.99, 32GB model coming soonAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Remember how I told you earlier this week to circle Nov. 22 in pencil as a possible Nokia Lumia 1520 launch date? You can now switch to the pen, because Nokia just announced that the Lumia 1520 will be available from AT&T on Nov. 22 for $199.99 with a two-year contract. The Lumia 1520 will also be available through AT&T Next for $27.00 per month or $584.99 without a commitment. Customers that'd like to guarantee their very own Windows Phone phablet can pre-order the Lumia 1520 starting today by hitting up AT&T's website or an AT&T store. Nokia also says that a version of the Lumia 1520 with 32GB of built-in storage, double that of the model launching on Nov. 22, will be sold by AT&T "in the near future."
AT&T, Microsoft and Nokia are also teaming up to include several goodies with each Lumia 1520 purchase. Consumers that buy the new handset from AT&T and activate it by Jan. 9 will receive a $20 app credit for the Windows Phone Store. AT&T is also giving Lumia 1520 owners 50GB of AT&T Locker cloud storage space, while Microsoft is giving away free copies of Halo: Spartan Assault.
Meanwhile, anyone that buys a Lumia 1520 from Microsoft will get a free $50 Microsoft Store app card in addition to the aforementioned $20 voucher and copy of Halo. And as if that wasn't enough, Microsoft will also throw in a free flip cover worth $40 with any pre-orders placed through its online or brick and mortar stores.
With its 6-inch 1080p display, the Nokia Lumia 1520 is the largest Windows Phone to date. Support for phablet-sized displays only recently came to Microsoft's mobile platform with the debut of Windows Phone 8 Update 3, which also added support for Qualcomm's quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. The Lumia 1520's got one of those at its heart, and the giganto-phone's also got a 20-megapixel PureView camera on its backside, a microSD card slot and a beefy 3400mAh battery. If that all that adds up to make a device that you want to cram into your pocket, then you can hit up the AT&T and Microsoft Store links below to get your pre-order on.
