Nokia Lumia 1320 is now official for Cricket Wireless; phablet launches this Friday
The Nokia Lumia 1320 phablet has been officially announced for Cricket Wireless. The pre-paid carrier has recently been acquired by AT&T and has re-launched 3000 stores throughout the country. Nokia has two models that are considered phablets, and the Nokia Lumia 1320 is the lesser-spec'd model of the two. The device will be a pre-paid exclusive to Cricket in the U.S. when it launches this Friday, June 13th, priced  at $229.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate in the form of a Cricket Visa Promotion Card.

The Nokia Lumia 1320 offers a 6 inch screen with a 720 x 1280 resolution and a 245ppi pixel density. A dual-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 processor is under the hood, along with the Adreno 305 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside along with 8GB of native storage, and a 64GB capacity microSD slot. A 5MP camera is on back and a .3MP snapper is on front. A large 3400mAh battery keeps the lights on.

Every 12 months of on-time payments gives the Cricket customer a $50 credit toward a new phone, and service plans start as low as $35 with a $5 credit for auto-pay. Four lines can cost as low as $100 using a multi-line account. If you haven't checked out Cricket in some time, you might want to look again to see what changes AT&T has brought to the pre-paid carrier.

Hmmmmmm... Not a bad way to get one if it's unlockable... I'd rather have a 1520 but a 1320 wouldn't be a bad alternative.

well... the Moto G costs $99 on Cricket after the rebate. Anyway, for people already on Cricket, the 1320 is a very nice option.
