Nokia Lumia 1320 headed to the UK on February 24th

After launching the Lumia 1320 in China and other parts of Asia in late December and January, Nokia has now set a date for the 6-inch smartphone to debut outside that region. Today, the company announced the Lumia 1320 will be released in the UK and Ireland on February 24th.

The email press release stated that the phone will be made available from a number of wireless carriers in the UK, including EE, Virgin Mobile and Carphone Warehouse, along with many other online retailers; specific pricing was not announced.

The large 6-inch screen has a LCD IPS display with a resolution of 1280×720. Inside, there's a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with a clock speed of 1.7GHz, along with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of on-board storage, with a microSD card slot for adding up to 64GB of additional space. The Windows Phone 8 device is basically a budget version of the Lumia 1520, with a less powerful processor and lacking the 1520's 20 megapixel PureView camera. Instead, the 1320 has a 5 megapixel rear camera.

There's still no word if the Lumia 1320 will make its way to the U.S.

I love the pace with at which Nokia is cranking new hardware, expanding into new markets and spitting out useful apps. They appear to be aggressive and moving at a faster rate than MS.

This is one of the main reasons why I didn't like the MS purchase of Nokia. MS is going to crank out new hardware to coincide with OS versions..see Surface

A standalone Nokia just seems hungry and ready to kick ass and takes names. That is just not the culture at MS.

The 1320 just now making it to the UK months after Nokia first announced the thing isn't exactly "fast". While MS buys the division, if anything with the cash on hand they have they should be able to do two things, first sell the phones for less than Nokia could've, MS doesn't care much for narrow margins since it's got money coming in from the store as well.

Second they can make more and release it in markets faster, Nokia always has a slow rollout of new Lumia phones, I think it's because they are/where cash strapped and moved slow.
