Nokia Lumia 1520 retail availability targeted in latest rumors
Nokia’s rumored launch plans for the Lumia 1520 found themselves getting a bit of a shake-up recently, with the idea of a September 26 announcement apparently ditched in favor of an October 20 event, instead. That delay doesn’t sound like good news for anyone eagerly awaiting to see what a Windows Phone phablet will be like, but the big issue’s not going to be when Nokia goes public with the 1520, but when those Lumia fans will actually be able to get their hands on the phone. According to the latest rumors, AT&T in the States may begin Lumia 1520 sales on Friday, November 8.
There’s no word about an off-contract price point outside of some speculation, but this source does offer a nearly $700 full price sticker for the model. Reportedly, the phablet will be available in just four color options: the red, black, yellow, and white that have each already appeared in their own leaks, and no cyan option this time around (if you were holding out hope). Still, that’s a much broader selection of color options than many phablets see.
We’re still interested in learning about international retail sales for the 1520, and will keep you posted on any rumors that arrive down that road.
