Nokia Lumia 1320 available to pre-order in the Philippines and Russia

Nokia Lumia 1320

Waiting in the Philippines for the Lumia 1320 to be made available on Globe? Hunkered down in Russia and you also want a Lumia 1320 to keep you warm? Good news as that budget phablet is headed to both countries in the near future, with preorders going in both regions. We'll tell you where to find 'em.

First up is the Philippines. The wait is almost over as the mobile operator has launched pre-orders for the Windows Phone phablet. The Windows Phone is free on Plan 1299, opening up a world of possibilities, including some HD Xbox Live gaming as highlighted on the order page.

If you're not familiar with the Lumia 1320, you're looking at a 6-inch 720x1280 display with a dual core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon CPU, 1 GB of RAM, micro SD expansion, 3400mAh battery and a 5 MP camera. The Lumia 1320 is meant to contrast with its pricier sibling, the Lumia 1520, but be available at a more affordable price.

If you want to get involved with the phablet club, head on over to Globe and place a pre-order.

Regarding Russia, you can now preorder the Lumia 1320 from Nokia themselves for 14990 rubles ($428 USD). The presale was picked up by WP7Forum.ru, who have a few more details on the offering. No release date is yet set for that phone, but we imagine it is just around the corner.

Its a nice phone, saying this as I myself am using it. For those who are crazy for the 6" Lumia 1520 but can't afford it, I would say give the Lumia 1320 a try. :)

The features you will definitely enjoy are :

1) 6" Gorilla screen

2) 1GB RAM

3) 1.7 GHz dual core processor

4) Glance screen

Ohh and I forgot to mention that the battery life is excellent. I hardly need to charge this phone. :)

Isn't it only a hundred bucks less than the 1520? If so, is that really worth the differences?

In India 1520 sells for double the price of 1320.

akshaypn says:

I agree...I am enjoying it more and more day by day....

PipoDj says:

woah so my tip got in. Anyway i am kicking myself in the butt right now. I have placed pre-order on the Lumia 625 a week ago and i got confirmation that i can receive the device anytime next week.... about a few hours after i learned about the 1320 getting to Globe. 

atherosxd says:

If only it is available last month. this might be the one I will get

Micropel says:

I may just get one as a back up phone

I got mine from hotgadgets; been using it for a week now and I am really satisfied especially with the battery life. Screen is great, nice color reproduction (better than what I expected), and super sensitive.

Orna Mintal says:

How much is it? The tipidcp account of hotgadgets does not list the 1320 as one of the items it is selling.

rain620 says:

The big upset: I'm still locked with my 620 from Globe.

PipoDj says:

Give it up man... Sell it haha
Or you can have an early upgrade

edwaine says:

I-benta mo na! Hehe

rain620 says:

I tried to call Globe to inquire about recontracting but they're closed. I can give up my 620 for his big bro! Sana eligible ako.

And France for 299€ at RueDuCommerce & Matériel.net ! "Le Nokia Lumia 1320 en précommande à 299€ chez Rue du Commerce et Matériel.net"

Very attractive price! :D

thegromble says:

I love my 1520 but I do admire the rounded corners on the 1320.

Blacklizted says:

What about the 1520? I'm 6 months past my lock period and waiting for an updated Lumia lineup from Globe.

PipoDj says:

I would suggest you tweet them but then well they don't usually respond haha

rain620 says:

I hope it will be available unlocked in the Philippines. I'm tired of all Globe's bs, it's our very own version of Verizon tbh.

PipoDj says:

teka, you mean they don't unlock their devices even if the contract has expired?


rain620 says:

I'm not sure with that. What was saying though is that the 1320 should be available on retailers. Actually, it is. I checked expansysph :))
