Microsoft Store taking $199 pre-orders for Nov. 15 launch of Nokia Lumia 1520

The big 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520 was officially announced a couple of weeks ago at the Nokia World event, but the company left out two important bits of information at that time about the smartphone; when it would be released in the U.S. and how much it would cost. Nokia still hasn't offered up that info but a page on the Microsoft Store site now has revealed both bullet points.

The page is now taking pre-orders for the 1520, showing that it will be released on November 15th in the U.S. for the price of $199 with a new two year contract under AT&T. If the phone is bought without a contract, the price goes up to $549.

Just a reminder: here are some of the specs behind the Lumia 1520:

  • 6 inch full HD 1080p LCD display
  • PureView 20 megapixel rear camera
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor set at 2.2GHz
  • 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage with microSD slot
  • Colors: Yellow, white, black, glossy red

There's still no official word on when the 10.1 inch Lumia 2520 tablet, also announced at Nokia World, would be released but it is also scheduled to be a timed AT&T exclusive before also going on sale via Verizon Wireless.
