AT&T begins selling Green Lumia 1520 with 16 GB for $199

As expected, AT&T is finally selling the super bright green Nokia Lumia 1520, complete with Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Cyan pre-installed (you can see what is new in our review). Considering the 8.1 update came out about 10 days ago for the Lumia 1520 that makes sense.

The big question is does the green Lumia 1520 bring anything else for $199 on-contract. Unfortunately, no. This is still the 16 GB version, although you can expand that with up to 128 GB with a micro SD card. There is also no Qi wireless charging, heck, they are not even pushing the PMA charging although we're sure it can at least do that much.

Still, an all green Lumia 1520, especially one as bright as this sure makes a statement. Combined with the fact the Lumia 1520 is still the king of Windows Phone in mid-2014 – for better or for worse – and you have a nice pairing with Windows Phone 8.1.

If you are thinking off contract pricing, it runs you $584, so make sure you are committed for that price, otherwise it is $199 for a two-year contract.

Head to AT&T's online store now to pick one up. It does not look like store availability is present just yet, so online only. Also make sure to watch our hands-on video above to see the green Lumia 1520 from our Build coverage!

Thanks, Alden M., for the tip!
