Starting November 22nd, you can head over to an AT&T or Microsoft store to get it in matte black, matte yellow, matte white or glossy red. Who’s going to press the ‘Buy It Now’ button and possibly get the device earlier than everyone else?
AT&T customers can pick up the Lumia 1520 for $199.99 on a two-year contract or $584.99 outright. As an added bonus, they will also receive a $20 credit for Windows Phone apps or games in the Windows Phone store.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 features a 6-inch, 1080p full HD display, 20-megapixel PureView camera, and runs Windows Phone 8 with the new GDR3 update. It’s a big device with an incredible screen. It is powered by Qualcomm's quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB RAM. Check out our hands-on photos and video of the Lumia 1520 for more details.
