Late last night we reported on the pre-order page for the AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520, the massive Windows Phone with a 6-inch, 1080P display. The listing was interesting because the price and release date were denoted, both of which were previously unknown. However, the Microsoft Store listing may have been posted in error.
First the bad news. Microsoft has now pulled the pre-order, meaning it was likely posted as a mistake. Second, we’ve heard from a highly reliable source that the Friday, November 15th date was the original plan but regrettably, it has been pushed back to Friday, November 22nd. That would partially explain why AT&T themselves do not have a preorder up for the 1520 and why Microsoft has pulled the listing.
The good news is we now know the price of the Lumia 1520 Protective Cover (CP-623). That case is also listed for pre-order with a $39 price tag. The date is also listed as the 15th, but we have a suspicion that the page will be de-listed soon after this story gets out.
The CP-623 protective cover is a plastic hard-shell back cover with a soft, rollout up front cover. Its purpose is not only protect the device, but it can roll up to form a kickstand, allowing you to use the Lumia 1520 to watch videos, etc.
While the release date for the Lumia 1520 and protective cover are still not guaranteed, we do believe the pricing options listed to be accurate. Hopefully AT&T and Microsoft will make an official announcement soon, so that people can start the preorder process. There is no word if Microsoft will honor those preorders from last night.
Update: As expected, Microsoft has removed the Store listing for the CP-623 cover
