Verizon branded Nokia Lumia 1520 in white, preserved on film

Hey Verizon customers, we've got good news for you to chew on this Friday evening; you might have thought that the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet would end up being an AT&T exclusive. After all, the Nokia Lumia 900, Nokia Lumia 920 and the Nokia Lumia 1020 were all launched as exclusives for AT&T...

This looks different than the original lumia 1520. I guess special edition for Verizon. And the original world variety will hit in at&t.

It's nice that Nokia (or Microsoft I guess) is up to date in terms of specs, but a 6" WP8 phablet just seems ridiculous. I've seen all the leaks, and WP8 on a large display looks absolutely HORRIBLE. There's just so many damn tiles, and that's it, tiles. WP on a smaller display, ok, it looks alright, but definitely not on a screen that big. Stick to regular sized phones, WP, you don't belong on phablets.
Note: this is my opinion. Don't get offended by it and try to tell me WP is the best thing ever and will be beautiful on a large display, because that will be just wasting your time.

WP IS THE BEST THING EVER AND WILL BE BEAUTIFUL ON A LARGE DISPLAY!!!
Oh wait, I didn't see that last part, sorry.
Anyways, I'm not convinced by this phone either. The only reason Samsung has made the Note series work is their Note-specific software that actually enhances the Android experience to the point that the Note ISN'T just a large phone, OR a small tablet. Maybe Nokia and MS will surprise us with some neat phablet-worthy features, but I hate to say I'm fairly pessimistic at this point. With MS' track-record, I guess we're lucky that it's even 1080p.

I doubt it... Every WP7/8 phone was exactly the same, aside from the OEM apps like HTC does with their phones and Nokia with the Lumias. I completely agree with Bezerk. WP8 on a 6" screen looks terrible. It's cluttered, which goes against what WP8 is all about. That's why I'm not so excited for the phone at all. Only time will tell I guess.

Oh yeah its about time, please be on 4 major carriers
Cause it would double or triple the sales to bring out the Lumia name

That is not a Lumia 1520! It lacks a camera bulge and the speaker on the lower corner is new. The flash position is different as well!

Nokia alters the designs for carriers.
Ex: Lumia 920 and 928 look very different and only change in specs is xenon flash on 928.
Lumia 820 (ATT), 822 (Verizon) and 810 (T-mobile) look different from each other.
I am sure Verizon would have demanded different design for their version.
