Nokia Lumia 1520 delayed; expect delivery on or before December 2nd

Nokia Lumia 1520 delayed; expect delivery on or before December 2nd
November 22nd was supposed to be the launch date for the Nokia Lumia 1520, the first Windows Phone phablet. But some who pre-ordered the 6 inch beast are receiving emails from AT&T or the Microsoft Store stating that the phone has been delayed. To help you cope with the delay, those whose shipment is not coming on time from the Microsoft Store will receive a coupon code good for a $25 discount on their next purchase.

According to one person who received the notice, the Nokia Lumia 1520 will now arrive on or before December 2nd. The delay is being blamed on overwhelming demand. Once your shipping label is printed, tracking information will be emailed to those waiting for the phone. Thanks to the GDR3 update, the Lumia 1520 carries high-end specs that match up with any high-end Android device. While that is positive for the surging platform, a delay for its new flagship device is not. Especially when this information was relayed to buyers the evening before the device was to be released.

Last week, we told you about one lucky person who happened upon an AT&T kiosk in a North Carolina mall that had the phone in stock and sold it to her early. Meanwhile, if you are one of the unlucky ones who now has to wait to receive his Nokia Lumia 1520, let us hear from you in the comments box below.

I ordered mine on the 19th and received it via Fedex on the 20th. I ordered the red one. And I have to say, I love it! I will admit its going to take a bit to get use to the Supersized phone. But its snappy and great for Youtube, games, and surfing the web. People in public are fairly shocked by the size as well but its a great way to show them what Windows phone has to offer.

if you order from AT&T you got yours early, if you order from Microsoft like the rest of us did to get the extra stuff with our phone, you have to wait for your order

I received that email. I'm a new activation for AT&T and if this is any indication of future service , I'll go somewhere else. I hope I'm amazed, because anything less than that will produce a Verizon customer.
