Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet priced officially at € 699.99, release date is in November

Nokia's first phablet effort, the Lumia 1520, turned out to be a large slab, stuffed to the gills with top-shelf smartphone tech like a 20 MP PureView camera, 4 HAAC mics, and the groundbreaking Assertive Display technology.

All that jazz can be yours for $749 without a contract in the US, and yet-undisclosed price with carrier subsidies. What about the rest of the world, though? Well, Nokia's Nstore in Italy just solved that mystery, listing the colorful phablet officially for € 699.99. This is for the 32 GB phablet with shipping slated for next month, and a € 99 preorder tag.
Electronics' prices in USD usually directly translate to the more expensive Euros, but Nokia apparently decided not to be so harsh on Italians with the Lumia 1520. This prices it similar to any other flagship phone or phablet in Europe, so we will follow the sales development with interest, as this might be the last major Nokia handset before Microsoft takes over the smartphone division.

You are drunk.. you can't compare this beast to the N series. If that's the case we should compare it to the note series too

Beast? Just coz it has 6-inch screen? 1520 has almost same hardware components as Nexus (5 or whatever it's called). It will have a better camera sensor and mics. Does that make it double the price? Nope. Nokia is just ripping you off like Apple.

You forget bigger screen and battery. . But I'm sure it helped your case to leave that out. Take your Goggles off.

Good lord - that's almost a grand (USD) for this phone. I don't care how awesome a phone is; theres absolutely no justification paying that much.

That's out of contract, buddy. Phone cost to be produced, and profits are what keep a company alive. $749 isn't that bad for a phone. Go look on eBay as to what people are asking for certain devices. There 'are' justifications for paying that much. If you can afford to pay and want it, then one should pay. If not, look else where, simple as that.

Don't call me buddy. I'm not your friend.

$749 for a phone isn't that bad? Really? I can't think of any more expensive.

I would never buy an iPhone - or any phone for that matter - at full retail. To each their own, but spending 600+ on a phone isn't for me. that's all I was trying to say.

Note 3 anyone?

I pay out of contract prices to avoid being on contract. It's a BIG money saver in the long run. Look it up, 'buddy.'

Lumia 1520 is a beast.

Even at 90fps the optical image stabilization in the 1020 trumps sammys plastic

And here's where I'm curious. Judging from the earlier leak of 7 codenames I've made a list:

Orion = Asha 500
Pegasus = Asha 502
Lanai = Asha 503

Shorty = Lumia 525? (Earlier Shorty was a speakerphone)
Bandit = Lumia 1520
Sirius = Lumia 2520

Rivendell = ???

I wan't to know what that leaked unknown codename is for. Is it for the rumoured second smaller phablet with a 41 MP camera? Is it the full-aluminium chassis some regard as a fake? Is it the Lumia 929?

Come on Nokia, give us a clue!

Maybe the 929 going Verizon. 5" and almost same as the bandit. Just cross your fingers.

And the
So called

Mountain View=?

Android phone? maybe but there is only a small chance.

My best guess for Rivendell is the first Nokia with a light-field camera (Pelican Imaging, PiCam) with their 300 megapixel sensors. Possibly even higher megapixels, since the 300 megapixel version is almost a year old when Rivendell is due for release.
