AT&T just announced it will be the exclusive carrier of the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet in the US, at a price yet to be revealed. It will also carry Nokia's first modern tablet, the Lumia 2520, and the rumblings are that we will see both stacked on carrier shelves as soon as November.
Nokia, however, pegged the unsubsidized prices for both the Lumia 1520 ($749), its midrange sidekick the Lumia 1320 ($339), and its Windows RT tablet 2520 ($499). The last two are very competitively priced and seem to have every chance of success for the value they offer.
The Lumia 1520 is priced as a flagship, but given the unique specs it offers, no wonder. Here are the direct quotes from Nokia for pricing and availability:
Presented in red, cyan, white and black, the Nokia Lumia 2520 will initially be available for sale in the US, UK and Finland at an estimated price of USD 499 before local taxes and subsidies. It will be spreading to other markets shortly after.
The Nokia Lumia 1520 is expected to begin selling this quarter in Hong Kong, Singapore, the United States, China and Europe (including Finland, France, Germany, and the UK), followed by other markets; and it has an estimated price of around USD 749 before local taxes and subsidies.
The Nokia Lumia 1320 will be available in a choice of orange, yellow, black, or white, and is planned to be available first in China and Vietnam in early 2014, followed by other Asian markets, India and European markets. It carries an estimated price of USD 339 before local taxes and subsidies.
