FYI it's already available in the middle east from few days... It has a very good price of 350$ off contract and unlocked... This is the launch price which is really good...

+1520/1320

I'm liking the design of the 1320 more than the 1520. Am I the only one?

If T-Mo US grabs either, I'll be on one faster than Thirsty Nuggas be liking pics on Instagram.

It's true but you'll get used to it. I recommend buying a case with rubberized coating to help with the grip.

Had the same issue before. Try using a matte type screen protector, it works for me. Also, try switching the touch sensitivity to see what works for you. Cheers!

It could be another minor (CPU) / major (screen) upgrade to my 820. But, it is too heavy!!! (220g vs. 160g)

Is the text cutout a problem in all phones with an extra live tile column? You can barely see the '16' in the email notification in that Lumia 1320. Even the Nokia Creative Studio tile is cut off from the end.

Why can't they release phones across multiple carriers like that in the US. They need to launch a flagship both in the US and UK at the same time or very very shortly thereafter. That'll push WP to a new level.

+2520. I really hope that their next wave of Windows Phones start doing exactly that. This year will be filled with too much competition and has too,much opportunity for them to not do so.

Anyone enthusiastic smartphone fan would rarely ever wait for an official launch. Usually these phones are available from 3rd party sellers way before the official launch.

True dat, but as with my ATIV S on T-Mobile there is some compromises...ie no WiFi calling, no sharing Hotspot, plus some apps just don't sync. And yes my ATIV S picks up 4G LTE and 3G via T-Mobile US.

I'm never spending $500+ on a "unlocked phone" ever again. Carrier Branded phones for me going forward.

Perfect timing!! My little brother wants to upgrade his Xperia to a Windows Phone, and I think this is great phone he'll be interested in. His T-Mobile contract ends at the begining of March, so I reckon he'll be getting this on EE sometime then :)

M using L1320 since 1 month and its also my 1st WP device after using BB for 5yrs I can vouch in to say that its a brilliant phone with fantastic feature

Announced 22nd Oct 2013... Now we hear it will be released 24th Feb. Thumbs down Nokia. I waited and waited and waited and ended up getting the Nexus5... Look what you made me do Nokia! I am crossed!
