Whether you choose to go directly to AT&T or you’d rather pay a visit to your local Microsoft Store, the good news is that you can now place your pre-order for the Nokia Lumia 1520 smartphone. This is Nokia’s first entry into the “phablet” range in the United States.
As a quick refresher, the Nokia Lumia 1520 boasts a massive 6.0-inch 1080p IPS touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 and ClearBlack technology. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 800 quad-core 2.2GHz processor, Windows Phone 8 Black, and 2GB RAM. There’s a 20MP camera on the back and a 1.2MP 720p camera on the front. AT&T is currently only offering the 16GB model, but they plan on launching the 32GB version in the future.
The pricing is right where we would expect it for a flagship-caliber smartphone. If you sign up for a qualifying two-year service agreement with AT&T, the Nokia Lumia 1520 can be yours for a penny shy of $200. If you’d prefer to buy it outright, the regular price is $584.99. If, for some strange reason, you’re willing to sign a one-year contract, then the price is $449.99.
The current shipping estimate has the Lumia 1520 arriving on November 19 with in-store availability following shortly afterward on November 22.
