Nokia Lumia 1520 lands in Australia

Nokia Lumia 1520 lands in Australia
The Nokia Lumia 1520 is the current Windows Phone flagship model with specs that match any high-end Android device. That is due to the GDR3 update from Microsoft which debuts on the phone. A rather lo-res picture of the Australian Harvey Norman catalogue shows off the 6 inch phablet with a price of  $894 AUD ($819 USD).

Those purchasing the device from the retailer will receive a $20 app credit, according to the listing. Despite the appearance of the Nokia Lumia 1520 in the catalogue we should point out that Nokia Australia has yet to officially release the model. Actually, the buzz around the Australian water cooler is that Nokia will make the phone official in the country on Monday.

Besides Harvey Norman, other retailers in the country are said to also have the Nokia Lumia 1520 in stock, which should make fans of the platform in the region very happy heading into the holiday shopping season.

We often get phones before other countries, but as an Australian, I can confirm this is very expensive approx $US822, or GBP505 (todays ex rate), Harvey Norman is hardly the place to pick up a bargain, especially when they are the only store with stock. Give it a few weeks for other local "bricks and mortar" retailers like D!ck Smith, JB HiFi and All Phones to sell them and watch the price drop.
