AT&T to sell Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet Nov. 22nd for $399.99, or for $199.99 with bundle

AT&T has now confirmed earlier rumors that it will begin selling the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet in the U.S. on November 22nd. The wireless carrier will sell the tablet for $399.99 with a two year contract, which is a bit lower than the rumored $499.99 price. AT&T is also offering a deal where the tablet will be priced at just $199.99, again with a two year contract, if it is bundled with a Lumia 925, 1020, or 1520 smartphone at the same time. You can also get the tablet without a contract for $499.99.

The company's press release also states that anyone who buys the 10.1 inch Windows RT 8.1 tablet between November 22nd and January 9th, 2014 will get a $20 voucher that can be used to download apps and content from the Windows Store.

AT&T's Lumia 2520 will be in black, again as previously reported. Verizon Wireless is also supposed to offer the same tablet on their network starting November 22nd, in both black and red, but so far that carrier has yet to state anything official about their plans to sell the 2520.

The Nokia Lumia 2520 will join Microsoft's Surface and Surface 2 as the only devices currently being sold by retailers that run on Windows RT 8.1.

Remember Lumia 900 release last year !!! Within 3 months they made it a brick and released Widows 8.

Windows 8.1 is around the corner by Jan/Feb '14 and the devices released this year may not have 8.1 features (again Nov/Dec - Jan/Feb - 3/4mths gap).

So I feel, folks want to go for a contract on Lumia, wait for 8.1 device come Jan/Feb.

2520 is alone is a nice deal. I feel some other color options will come in Verizon/TMo shortly before holidays.

Rolled the dice for my wife as her 900 had a badly cracked screen, but I'm hanging on to mine as I'm still in a contract AND I want to see what the next devices are -- not to mention the nerf that AT&T did to the 1520.

"The wireless carrier will sell the tablet for $399.99 with a two year contract, which is a bit lower than the rumored $499.99 price"

I'd say that's a lot more than a bit.

$199 is an excellent deal if you were already in the market for a new smartphone as well.

Yup, that looks like a good deal to me. And a few people might pick up a 1520 just to get the 2520 as well. I haven't checked but what's the price for the 1520? $299 with contract? So that's $299+$199 for the 2520 deal, $399 for 2 devices upfront sounds good to me. Specially when just the 2520 alone is $499 and the 1520 is around the $700 price range unsubsidized.

Do you also have to buy two data plans or tethering will be allowed?

I don't know the details but I'm guessing it's 2 plans, one for each device, that's the only way they'll sell a $499 device to you for $199. In the long run you're spending more, you're stuck with 2, 2 year contracts but I'm sure you can turn around and cancel one later on right? What's the minimum time you have to hold on to it before you can cancel in the US? Here in Greece I have to wait 6 months last I checked before I can cancel a contract or change it to something else, like a cheaper one. I also bet there's a fee but it could be cheaper just to pay the fee instead of the contract till it's end, I don't know.

You will probably need the mobile share plan. I think that is $10/mo for tablets.

I do not use carrier branded devices so I am not 100% positive but I guess it is one year , you have to buy another device from the carrier and the contract is reset for another 24 months.

Isn't AT&T offering a minimum $100 store credit for 3 yr old smartphones. I have two (Focus and 900). Is there a limit, if not could I get the 2520 & 1520 for free then?
