AT&T’s preorder page shows the phone selling for $199 with the standard two-year contract, $584 month to month, and $27 per month through the carrier’s Next installment plan. The 1520 is available in red, black, white, and yellow. AT&T promises a ship date of November 19.
Microsoft is now offering preorders of the Lumia 1520 via AT&T for the same $199 price tag and $549 off contract. Customers can preorder the phone at Microsoft’s Web site or at one of its retail outlets. The online preorder page shows only black, white, and red as the available colors. But Microsoft has a few perks up for grabs.
People who preorder the Lumia 1520 through Microsoft before November 22 will get a $50 Microsoft Store app card, a free flip cover valued at $39.99, a $20 app card provided by Nokia, and a free download of “Halo: Spartan Assault” for Windows Phone. Those who buy the phone on or after November 22 will score all of those items except for the flip cover. More
