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...

Well here's the real truth people the 1520 is a great phone its camera alone sets it apart from any other smart except the sony experia z1 the galaxy note does offer something that is great with s pen which is amazing if the note 3 had 6" screen I would love it for those who love large screen phones the 1520 will be great. But its a sad thing that Verizon is so week that they can't get the 1520 their version will be the 5" version which isn't bad but Verizon fails to provide great phone choices for the customers like at&t

This is the phone that will replace my Lumia 920. My brother went with the 1020 and ditched his GS3. I'm surprised at the momentum Nokia is getting. Good job Nokia. Good job at&t.

I like what the 1520 offers, but Im not completely sold on Windows Phone yet. Its good to see other other companies cashing in on the phablet craze besides Samsung, but I'll stay with Android and upgrade to the Note 3. Nokia's only issue with the 1520 is the carrier exclusivity with AT&T. I have AT&T and I dont think that the Nokia 2520 should stay with one carrier when they want to make the 1520 a strong competitor to the Note 3, Z1, and the One Max to name a few.

Horribly stupid move to go single carrier in the US.. stupid stupid stupid Nokia. I don't understand why struggling companies do these sorts of things.

As a Note 2 owner, I was going to give the Nokia a look when it comes out. It was either that or the Note 3.. I'm just not sure about WP yet.. but I'd give it a look at least! Not now - thanks Nokia!

Exclusive to AT&T??? B.S. I joined T-Mobile recently because of them revolutionizing the cell phone business (Cancelling contracts, JUMP, etc..) I also became a WP user when my galaxy SIII broke and I borrowed my 13-yr olds Lumia 521 and started to fall in love. I've been waiting for the 1520 to become available on T-Mo so I could give my son his phone back. Well....Nokia has ruined that with the exclusive to AT&T. Sorry son, don't blame me blame Nokia.

The only WP device available now or in the near future on T-Mo is the 925. Am I forced to buying that or go back to Android and get the Note 3?

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Please help

STOP WITH THE ATT EXCLUSIVE!!!! Nokia needs to expand its phone to the other carriers to grow.

I have been waiting for this phone until I found out ATT is neutering it with only 16GB memory and losing the wireless charging built in. Stupid that Nokia gives ATT exclusive when they wont even carry the best version.

If AT&T gets it first I will stick with android forever. They already lost me with not bringing the 1020 to Verizon. Their marketing is complete shut and they wonder why they cant sell phones? I don't buy outdated tech nor lesser knock offs like the 928. I was planning on buying a 1520 for me my wife and my son, but oh well.
