Report: AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520 set for early November at $699 off contract, comes in four colors

AT&T is on board with picking up the 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520, which is expected to launch in early November according to one of our reliable sources. Windows Phone Central now has some further confirmation from a second person familiar with the matter.

The new info points to a planned Friday, November 8th launch date on AT&T for the colossal Windows Phone.

We can also confirm that the device will come in four colors, including red, black, yellow and white—most of which have already been revealed in either leaked photos or renders. Evidently, cyan for AT&T is a thing of the past as the Lumia 920 was the last phone to feature that hue.

Pricing for the 6-inch tablet with a 1080P display is purportedly set for $699 off-contract, making it easily one of the most expensive Windows Phones to date and equating what the Lumia 1020 originally launched at for Microsoft Stores (AT&T themselves may aim for a lower $650 range for the 1520).

An on-contract price has not yet been discerned, though it is safe to speculate that it could launch at the $299 price point like the Lumia 1020. Considering the high end technology found in the Lumia 1520 and the general price range for large-screen devices, this should not be a surprise.

The Lumia 1520 has yet to be announced by Nokia, but the device is all but confirmed at this point due to the numerous leaks over the last few months. Originally planned to be declared at the end of September that event has reportedly been postponed according to various sources.

Evleaks has recently suggested Tuesday, October 22nd as a launch date, but we’re confident that is simply the big press announcement with availability occurring two weeks later on November 8th. That process will reflect AT&T’s recent Lumia 1020 and Lumia 925 ‘announcement versus availability’ schedule.


Photo via the Verge

The Lumia 1520, codenamed ‘Beastie’ for AT&T according to our source, will feature a massive 6-inch 1080P display, 32 GB of internal storage (with microSD expansion), Snapdragon 800 CPU and a 20 MP rear camera. The polycarbonate design will make it literally feel like a “giant Windows Phone” and the alleged 3400 mAh battery should keep the device powered throughout the day.

Recently, Nokia has been caught testing alternatives to the word “phablet” for marketing purposes. The term phablet brings some controversy as a lot of people have a knee jerk negative reaction to the designation. Unfortunately, a substitute is not as easy to come by.

Since schedules and approvals can shift, the November 8th date should be understood as tentative until an official announcement is made by AT&T and Nokia.

700$ :(
also why give up on the cyan :(

kevin sledge says:

You don't believe a truly stacked phone like this is worthy of that price? I'm seriously asking because I wonder how much Samsung would be able to get away with charging for the galaxy note 3 off contract. I sometimes think we want the best but we don't want to pay for the best, it may not be for everyone but look at it this way, when this phone arrives it should be one less thing people have to complain windows phone doesn't have.

PaulKinslow1 says:

If it has a stylus, maybe. If it has the RT versions of Office and IE, it would definitely be worth that price. If it's just a big Windows Phone, it's not worth that much.

Paul Acevedo says:

Why should we be happy about the $700 price point? That's a lot of money. And we all have different incomes and living situations, so don't judge someone just because $700 seems like a lot to him.

I think phablets should run Windows RT. Not windows phone.

With that price might as well pick up a surface.

L0gic Bom8 says:

Already have the Surface! Deciding on whether to get the phone or not. I'm pleased they added microSD for a high-end device, finally! But if they made it with 64GB and keep the microSD still...Nokia, shut up and take my money! I wonder what the iPhone 5 (64GB version) was priced off contract? Hmm...

Z10YkakPES says:

I think 899 for 5s

zigzagr63 says:

I thought the iPhone 5s 64GB was $1199.

aitt says:

That's just stupidly insane.

wpguy says:

And yet, I bet there would be some who would open their wallets even at that price. And more. Say, $1399, for example:
http://www.amazon.com/Iphone-64gb-GSM-Unlocked-LTE/dp/B00F4799T2/ref=sr_1_1?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1379367407&sr=1-1&keywords=iphone+5s+64gb

NJKevin says:

tissotti says:

Well its not different to any other similary specced phablet and this features 20MP (possibly OIS) and larger screen, so even higher price could have been possible. 

Skunkwurx says:

I know right? I know Nokia is now the one everyone veiws as having "invented" colour bodied smartphones, Cyan was the one that people thought of as a Nokia colour bodied smart phone... Now they are still pushing yellow and red (depending on model)... Will 8.1 bring a new colour? or at least a new primary... make it easy to pick out new models

L0gic Bom8 says:

Hope they make a rich sapphire/cobalt/azure blue color. Like how HTC did with California Blue. I miss San Diego... :'(

Daniel, wasn't the code name "bandit" ?

Jf.Vigor says:

I could be wrong, but I thought that was for the metallic variant

robinthekid says:

Woah. It's almost as there will be another Nokia phone... *fades off into the dark* *I didn't say anything*

Only off-contract. Still much, much cheaper than an iPhone.

alissa_914 says:

Fortunately, they have AT&T Next where you can get the phone for probably about $22/mo.  If I'm not mistaken, I believe that usually means you don't have to put anything down.  I have a Windows 8 tablet (x86) and I don't need a phablet at 6" but I could imagine that watching Podcasts on this thing might be quite nice.....  hopefully, they'll let us attach a bluetooth keyboard to it this time.

lippidp says:

This is great news! I don't want this device, but hopefully the price for 920 and 1020 continue to drop as a result of its release.

Duduosf says:

I like your thinking

Tigueron says:

Contract wise, the 920 is basically free and the 1020 just went down in price as well, my guess was for this phone to take that $299 spot.

Ed Boland says:

Exactly! 1020 here I come!

Drewidian says:

Please let it come out on Verizon at the same time or have a 30 day exclusive so it comes out in early December!

RyanAMG says:

Verizon can have my money now. I hope we don't only get the smaller one from yesterday FCC post on WPC

Nimdock says:

I was thinking hard about getting this phone because it looks awesome.
 
However, the more I think about it the more I lean towards staying with my 920 for a while and using those $700 towards a Surface Pro 2.

DaSchnee says:

I'm fine with my 920 as long as it get's updated

+920. Vodafone, get your thumb out!

EJP86 says:

+1 I love my L920 & am looking forward to the Surface Pro 2.

bilzkh says:

Yep as long as it's updated the 920 is fine for me.

jasvin says:

Same here with my 920..

sunilg1 says:

That's cool. Finally something that can challenge Samy in Big Screen phones.

LepantoESP says:

Does it, however, come with a stylus? IMO you need that to compete in that category

bilzkh says:

No stylus, I hope in the future though.

Just use a normal pencil. Works on 920.

NJKevin says:

Can't we still use a fork, like in the commercial for what, the 820?
 

peterfares says:

I don't want a dumb stylus. I want a Wacom active stylus, like Windows has supported for over a decade and like my Note 2 has. 

aitt says:

Welp. Guess I'll be waiting for the Nexus 5 then. Wont pay that price for any phone.

The comparable AT&T Note 3 costs $299 ($724 off contract), so it's the par for this class of phone.

I'm not sure what your expectations were for a 1080P 6-inch device with every bell and whistle, but if it was less than $299 on contract, it sure wasn't realistic. 

Clavitox says:

He's just trying to troll

aitt says:

You're an idiot if you think I'm trolling

Josh Harman says:

Definitely a troll.

Rishicash says:

Dreaming maybe, but not trolling.

aitt says:

And I wouldn't pay that price for that either. $699 I'm getting a surface pro and utilize my money. Than a phone. $599 is even a stretch.

blackhawk556 says:

Doesn't the note 3 have a stylus and hand wave gimmick? It has more whistles than this phone.

aitt says:

The hand wave gimmick is simple software. I hate Touch Wiz. But that's why Android will have an advantage with customization.

ymcpa says:

It cost $30 more. That covers the stylus. I wonder how many note users actually use the stylus.

aitt says:

I know no one I seen personally. I think it's old technology considering. But that's just me.

Also lets not forget about design note 3 gets a 4 out of 10 while Lumia 1520 looks quite good so please stop trolling shamesung fanboy

jfa1 says:

right now I am thinking that there are not any programs that would utilize a stylus like the apps and programs on the note  note 2 and note 3.  .

LepantoESP says:

I know it as a fact that some people prefer to write in with a stylus than to type in with your fingers. Natural input does have its users.

nelsonecm says:

You should see the prices in my country, for example the iPhone 5 costs like 930 dollars, the Lumia 920 almost 700 dollars, of course off contract.

ahmedjan87 says:

Somewhere in the middle east, right?

pulkit10 says:

I agree...it is a 6-inch phone - what did you think it was going to cost? All the extra stuff in there adds on and increases the price. Simple math, really.

I'm having a hard time deciding if it is worth dropping the extra dough to pay out my 920 and get this one. Will end up costing around $400...

peterfares says:

I bet the BOM went up a whole $30 over a 925.

Jazmac says:

I bet Flipboard will look great on that.

Yes it will. I can't wait for Flipboard on that massive 6inch screen.

blackhawk556 says:

Big titties as well

Clavitox says:

I'm sure your spell check changed tiles to titties right? :P

dmw_4814 says:

Did someone say the Lumia 1520 is coming with a pair of large female breasts?!! Is there going to be a hot, sexy female attached to them?

Where do I sign up, Nokia?!!

Now, THERE'S a way to increase your phone sales! :-)

CobraJ82 says:

I'm definitely in.

DaSchnee says:

It's always hilarious to me when Americans complain about their cheap prices. This thing will most likey cost 699€ (933$) in Europe, which is a reasonable price in my opinion.
 
EDIT: What happend here? Where is the comment i actually replied to?

Zaklinac says:

Well, in my country people who run the official Nokia shop are insane, new Lumia 820 was for 449e and new Lumia 920 was for 599e ! I just bought new 820 from Poland for 300e and later 920 for 350e. This little beauty will cost probably around 749€ in my country... o.O

Fritzly says:

The issue is not the price itself but paying that price for a device depending on AT&T, or any other carrier, for updates. I would rather buy, as I always did, an branded device and cut off the middleman.

Zaklinac says:

Censorship everywhere :)

mister2d says:

I don't buy it.

I hate the sound of the 'word' phablet, why not go with:
Under 5" - Smartphone
Over 5" - Superphone

You think Superphone sounds good? Hmmm...

clappenings says:

How about BigBadAssPhone

MadSci2 says:

"BUFFone". (Look up B52 for the original meaning of "BUFF") :D

walter1832 says:

Take a page from Ninendo.  Superphone XL

TechieFan says:

I like the XL, maybe Lumia XL  or BAP (Big Ass Phone)?

OMG55 says:

How about simply "JUICED" or "LumiaOnTheCream"....This thing might end up facing charges in front of a government judiciary panel : )

For marketing purposes - Yes. It would create the division needed between the two and it wouldn't be tied to any one brand or OS. It also sounds much better than phablet (IMO).

kingkoopa09 says:

Superphone could be a great marketing scheme to get both the new size phones and windows branding

Bee Mon says:

How about megaphone, hmmm nope that's taken. How about phonebook, ok that's not going to work. OK this is my last suggestion... Tabphone?

Tigueron says:

How about MegaPhone with really loud speakers!

Jeebus137 says:

Over 5" - Smarterphone

walter1832 says:

If it's under 4" - Mildly retarded phone? or the PC way, Mildly mentally challenged phone

Lenin17301 says:

It's good is a Mildly retarded phone, never go full retard.

subphone
subsonic/supersonic, etc

Micfur says:

When I filled out the Nokia survey I wrote in Lumia Magnus, its not very good but its all I could come up with.

How about FoneTab.. Phone + size of a Tablet..

aitt says:

Too close to ASUS FonePad

zigzagr63 says:

How about facephone!

GSOgymrat says:

It's a man phone. (kidding)

wpoblation says:

Whats wrong with Cyan? If AT&T doesn't want it, make that color available for other carriers!

I'm going to take a wild guess here: it didn't sell well.

jiayit says:

I dunno, is it THAT hard to just produce back covers of a different dye? Regardless of whether it sells well or not, always better to have more colour choices to appeal to a wider audience.

That's now how it works or what is the concern.

Different colors equal different SKUs. The more variants you offer, the more you have to stock and the more complicated inventory becomes for AT&T with little for a return.

If cyan simply does not sell well, it does not make financial sense to order it and try to stock it for a small minority of people. If devices don't sell, AT&T is stuck with the inventory.

aitt says:

I prefer the Nokia cases like for my 920 anyways.

Hard to say that Daniel, especially when you had to special order it from the website, my local store did not have cyan or yellow in stock when I went to purchase.

They usually only carried one or two per store at any given time. Large metro areas would sometimes have up to 6 in store, but at&t has never had the faith (or sales) in WP to stock many more than that.

Exactly, so not producing cyan phones brcause AT&T said so sounds foolhardy, Nokia should check in a market where they have more volume and see if cyan or blue would be popular, I bet they would be.

clappenings says:

Jeez I thought you'd said $699 ON CONTRACT for a second. *takes heart pills

Jeff Kibuule says:

I wish that T-Mobike got some of the same Windows Phone love. In fact, id love to buy the phone directly from Nokia or Microsoft if it meant no ugly carrier branding.

tribexx says:

D@mn these carrier exclusives...

pulkit10 says:

Hoping Rogers gets this before 2025. Judging at the pace they're picking up Nokia phones, it'll probably be a lot later.

MBaughan says:

It could be worse.. I'm with Telus and their current top-of-the-line WP is the ATIV S... I bought an ATIV S for my dad, and the screen shattered the first time he dropped it. His new 620 is built like a brick though.

MrSimmix says:

Did you call it a tablet? It's probably just a typo.

4bh1sh3k says:

I hope it comes to India soon after US release.

ejb222 says:

Well they may have dropped cyan but why elimanate blue all together...isn't that like 90% of people favorate color?
EDIT: They must be waiting for WP Blue to release...then they will flood the market with all sorts of blue phones
 
 

Jf.Vigor says:

Very good point. Cyan doesn't work for me, but blue sure does. I was just saying the other day if it came out in blue I'd wait overnight for it lol

Tigueron says:

They are probably reserving it for the 8.1 launch device lol

WilliamC1972 says:

Come on, T Mobile!!!!!

T-Mobile is on "Time Out". They always get the low-level entry phones first then may be one top-of-the-line phone for the year.l

PS..im on T-Mobile and hope to Jesus I'm wrong.

rodneyej says:

This will be mine❗ But after seeing how big the Samsung Galaxy Mega was yesterday, and realizing that there is no way in hell the 1520 is going to fit in my pocket, I've decided that I'm going to have to keep my 920 for my main device, and get the 1520 for my toy... Kinda makes me want to just go tablet... The fact is that I don't need my laptop, a pro tablet, a huge phablet, and my 920.... I love these kind of dilemmas... Isn't this AWESOME❓... LOL❗❗❗❗❗❗

TechBizJP says:

Its kinda exciting to have toys like these. A Smart Phones 4", 6" and a 7" tablet, and Laptop or a Surface Pro..

rodneyej says:

I love it❗❗

Jf.Vigor says:

#firstworldproblems ha!

rodneyej says:

Lol.❗❗ "Oh the humanity❕... Where in the world am I going to put this phone""" Lol❗

I'm getting bigger pockets...no!
Actually my suit jacket will let me slip in a 7" tablet so a 6" phone is too small !!
cool

pmich says:

I like the black with black icons.  How come we don't have that on the current 9XX generation?  and no "ease of access - high contract" isn't the same.
 
 

Jf.Vigor says:

That too is high contrast buddy

Josh Harman says:

It's not on this phone either, look closely, it's clearly in high contrast mode.

Hey guys just wait 45 days and this baby will probably drop a hundred or two. How do i know? experience from my 1020. =(  They should just start at a reasonable price, such as 550 to 600.

budney says:

True, that's why I will wait til the beginning of the year to pick one up. And by that time I hope their is a unbranded/unlocked version that will work on AT&T. I have not been happy with the way AT&T has handled updates for the 820.

Jf.Vigor says:

Yeah but then by that time there will again be another new must have phone

Yes...the 1130 and the 1830 with the Pelican Images 4x4 camera array - just 399 on-contract
pick your screen size 4.7" & 6.3"

Blacklac says:

If AT&T is actually good with updates, that is an exception. They are terrible updating most phones. Highly annoying as they seem to get awesome phones. I buy whatever phone I want regardless of AT&T or VZE, and I'm always drawn to AT&T phones and they never update them.

Jf.Vigor says:

I SHOULD wait consdering that I'll be getting a $500 console 2 weeks after,  but it's not in my genes to wait. So I'll be getting it day 1 like the enthusiast I am

JoeDizzle33 says:

$6500 is expensive for a console. Does it come with a 4k tv?

Kanshin says:

I will upgrade my Fiance's 920, to my current 1020, and pick up a 1520 to support Windows phone and have a 1080p screen.
Windows phone needs a much needed status symbol phone- all metal, 4.7-5 inch 1080p display, 41mp camera, microSD, a 64gb option... nfc and the rest of the Nokia best on breed options found on the rest of the Nokia models. Price is no object as it is not for everyone.
Current Lumia line up Windows phone progression- purchased- Lumia 900, 4 Lumia 920's(4 lines), 1 Lumia 1020, Future owner of a 1520, and hopefully the status Symbol mentioned above. :-)

Manny C says:

Awesome. Out of curiosity, what color are your 920's?

Kanshin says:

My first and main line was a Yellow 920, I have a Black 920 on my second line, a White 920 for my business line, and my Fiance has the Red 920.
All of them are beautiful!
I upgraded my main line to the Black 1020 and picked up 2 Wireless charging covers- one Yellow (for the stand out days) and a black one for when I want a change. (I always use the yellow though :-))

Manny C says:

That's sweet. I never thought I'd be into the yellow 920/1020 but as soon as I saw them in person I fell in love, they looks great!
:D

Kanshin says:

Agreed, the yellow really makes a statement! People really notice it. I was at dinner a couple weeks ago and sat at a table right next to John Cena of the WWE and his girlfriend Nikki, I was taking some pictures with the 1020 and John asked if that was the new Nokia 1020, and asked about the picture quality, I took a picture with them and my fiance and showed them the Lumia 1020 awesomeness! :-)

Jf.Vigor says:

Pics or it didn't happen

Kanshin says:

Here is a highres link to the John Cena, Nikki of the WWE and my fiance Beth, taken with the Lumia 1020.
Make sure to click the 3 dots on the bottom right, view sizes, and click- view original, to see the full high res picture. It was dark in the restaurant, of course the Lumia1020 came through! :-)

Enjoy!

Manny C says:

Wow, that's unbelievable! That's a pretty good looking picture as well. Awesome you got to talk to him a bit about your Lumia!
:D

Jf.Vigor says:

Wow totally awesome man

Tjalsma says:

Sorry if this has been asked but do we know if it will have wireless charging? If so, this may be my next phone.

In Limbo says:

As long as they don't call it a phucking phablet . . .

JSax1 says:

I want this phone, but if there's no cyan, I'll stick with my 920. I have a cyan charging plate, headset and headphones... And I like having these matching accessories. Why would they drop the color but keep red and yellow?

Micfur says:

I hope it goes to other carriers just as the 925 went to att after T-Mobile had it exclusive for a bit. I really want T-Mobile to carry this monster, my wife is feed up with her Note 2.

kullkid92x says:

Daniel, can you extend a bit more on the "suggested Tuesday, October 22nd as a launch date, but we’re confident that is simply the big press announcement"

So are you agreeing with evleaks here or have your sources told you an earlier date for the announcement event? and if so, what date is it? :P

PG2G says:

Sounds the confusion is because some people use 'launch' to mean announcement whereas other use it to mean release. Seems like eveyone is on the same page to me

sl#WP says:

Oct, 22,  launch(whatever word they use) it, not avaiable. Nov.8 available. You can order before Nov. 8 I guess.  

cdb033 says:

My dream phone!!!

strikeIII says:

I'm definitely going to wait to see what they fix or enhance with GDR3 because to have all those live tiles on the screen only to be restricted by MS Push Server then what's the point. You'll be paying more for a gimped larger Lumia.
 
Plus, a full feature phone like this also needs HDMI out and OTG capabilities especially since it will have a MicroSD slot.

LawnPaul says:

Needs cyan, needs wireless charging.

saulgould13 says:

I may stick with 920 and simply wait until hype wears off, not sure that price point hits the Goldie locks zone, I'll just wait it out..

Wevenhuis says:

Not happy with this news. We now know its avaiable at at&t aroudn nov 8th. at 699. And we haven't even seen the phone. This could mean a lot more compromises to this phone than what is currently know in the rumours. I'm worried its going to be a half baked product. I'm expecting disappointments in 3 categories. 1 battery life 2. camera issues and 3. OS updates.

Jf.Vigor says:

What??
So because we know the price and date, that means the phone sucks?
Don't understand your logic

Wevenhuis says:

I do not think the phone will be bad, but I'm worried that, knowing the fantastic rumours so far of the 1520, that the fact these things are known (date, price, location) without seeing an official release or show of the product, that many features promised in the rumours could turn out differently. Because the price is known (or fixed now) you can only fit so many features into that phone. I'm only preparing for disappointment that not all the presented features will actually be on the 1520 phone. My biggest concerns will be 1. battery life compromises (much lower than 3400), 2. camera issues (inaccurate montage of camera hardware and software (as experienced in previous lumias; 20 mpix is a new realm within the  lumia line!), and OS (will GDR 3 be stable?) I'm still in debate with myself between the 1520 and 1020 at this moment. With the latest news, I feel that the 1520 is being designed and built relatively quickly campared to the other lumia devices. I just hope that this phone won't be a rush job, purely to satisfy our (and my) lust for the device.

Jf.Vigor says:

Its not a rush job. Rumors about the general distribution release updates have been known since November of last year. Companies have roadmaps and plan ahead. Nokia knew around this time gdr3 will be ready
I'm sure they've been testing the 1520 for months now. You sound like you wear an aluminum hat friend. Everything will be fine and this phone will come out with promised specs. What we don't know, is what else it will come with (new/exclusive apps, unrevealed gdr3 features, etc)

Wevenhuis says:

Perhaps, Jf.  Doesn't hurt though to be on the cautionary side. When I look at my htc Titan running 7.8 as a daily driver, I satisfied with the available apps. Of the top 50 most wanted apps, from memory, I perhaps use only two. Others are third party apps. Exclusive/new is nice but what is most interesting to me of the 1520 is the hardware. The 920 e.a. with windows phone 8 have already established the app ecosystem. I hope you're right my friend and that I can take comfort in your words that all is well on the hardware front.

pmich says:

My birthday is Nov 11...  YES..  now just waiting for some troll to say "No one cares about your stupid birthday"

Happy birthday. Someone must care because I dont!! :)

I care!
I pray God to give us all the possibility to get that phone a day before your birthday
(also cyan, and Qi option, and miracast)

koenshaku says:

I guess I am going to get one of these.. Its a bit of a shame though that they don't have a device in the 5" realm because I have always talked crap about the size of the galaxy note and now I will be toting something as ridiculously large lol.

dmw_4814 says:

I currently own a Galaxy Note 2 (will DEFINITELY be coming back to Windows Phone 8 with the release of the 1520!) and the screen now seems SMALL to me!

bono5112 says:

I think its a fair price for this phone, I want this phone but if I can't work something out with my local ATT store then I guess I wait. People that are saying "its not worth the price" nobody is forcing you to buy it!!! Of course its not worth the price, but it should come as no surprise. Its very comparable in that class of phone.

jtanigawa says:

Will the AT&T version work with T-Mobile's LTE bands?

Manny C says:

I'm pretty sure it should, the 920 and 1020 do!

jtanigawa says:

That's interesting because the 520 only supports T-Mobile's 4G not their LTE. I only know this because I got the 520 as a hold over device until 1520 is released. I've been waiting to buy the 1520 ever since I heard the first Nokia phablet rumors. I think $699 off contract is a steal considering non-phablet flagships are usually $700+ on Expansys and that's not including shipping!

Manny C says:

Well the way I always understood it is that you'd have to live in a refarmed area (major cities) to be able to use their LTE if you use an At&t phone, or it might just be the 520 I don't know.
But wow you've been waiting quite a while for 1520, I applaud your patience! Haha. What color do you plan on purchasing?

jtanigawa says:

On the assumption that the 1520 will use the same matte black and white as the 1020, I think I'm gonna have to see the device in person to decide, however I'm definetly leaning towards matte white. I'm also really excited to see if the red is in matte which could also be VERY tempting!

I want this black theme on my Lumia :(

Jf.Vigor says:

You already have it

ImSoWade says:

Just go to high contrast mode in settings

swirl253 says:

I hope VZW gets it first, because AT&T got the 1020, Tmobile got the 925, VZW is inline for the new first phone.

Corvodin says:

I want that thing.

Lenin17301 says:

I have one hope and one doubt, the hope is that it gets released factory unlocked before the 24th of November, and the doubt is, in case it does get released before that date, which color to pick, I already have a red Lumia 920, wondering if keeping with that color, or pick up a yellow one, or maybe black.

ejlee072006 says:

Damn.. $299?? If that will be the case I will settle with the 1020 with updated OS..I knew when the 1020 was priced 299 at launch it was a trial.. They sold,but I could have been 149 they will sell like pancakes

Is that 299$ every month?? >_< I,dont understand how you people work if i work out the price for each month it would be 45 $ each month on 24 month contract so wat am i missing here :/

Wagan8r says:

Am I the only one, who would love to see this thing come in lime green, just like the 620? Not mint, not forest, but lime?

Paul Acevedo says:

I would buy it in lime.

ImSoWade says:

As much as I want this phone I can't see myself using this for the next 2 years its too big for my taste. Hopefully the devices revealed next year will fit the bill

jlzimmerman says:

I want a Verizon variant of the 1020.

Blacklac says:

Come on Amazon, bring the $0.01 Black Friday goodness! Haha. I won't hold my breath.

GSOgymrat says:

This may be the phone I have been waiting for. I really hope it has wireless charging. I also hope Barnes and Noble, who has a great app for Windows 8, finally makes an app for WP because I could definitely read on this phone.

myrandex says:

Agreed. I'm actually surprised given how much Microsoft invested in Nook that we don't have an app yet...

devize says:

Its great that we've finally caught up in the specs battle with Android. No excuses now.

ymcpa says:

How about calling it AIO-All in One. It's a phone and tablet all in one device.

JoeDizzle33 says:

I like what's in the phone, just not sold on its size. Hopefully Nokia is working on something in the 5in size as well.

Darkwolf70 says:

How about instead of Phablet, they call it a Tabone. :-)

heda_p says:

does nokia or ms figured out a competitor for airplay??? (not playto please, need to play any video in any app to stream to TV )

^
This!! Honestly, playto is a joke compared to airplay. You can use airplay only on the apple tv, but what it can do is amazing. AirPlay type functionality with the Xbox One please! And no, smartglass is not the same!

heda_p says:

Not only appletv...airplay works very well with XBMC on windows (its free software) and for some reason not many people know
i wish xboxone have hdmi passthrough support for windows 8 pc (running xbmc) and yes i agree...miracast reciever support which windows 8.1 already have it....
 
 
 

myrandex says:

Poor cyan. Glad I have a 920 in that color, but my matching headphones might not match any future model.

nbolmer says:

No. For that price and size it needs RT at minimum.

WP95 says:

How could they get rid of cyan? I mean a cyan L900 was the best back in the day.

dbgman says:

November? I am already going to shell out $500 for the xbox one in November. Maybe they will do a bundle package!

heda_p says:

check ebay its getting sold for 700+
