Microsoft fixed November 22, 2013 as the official date of releasing its soon to be subsidiary’s much awaited phablet, i.e., Nokia Lumia 1520. The product is also being sold through carrier AT&T. Though the official release date of this product, which was announced about a week ago, is yet to arrive, the product is already available in the market. This makes pre-ordering these gadgets a farce.
AT&T mentioned that this phablet would be offered for almost $585, but people could buy it for just a $200 or so if they entered into a two year contract with the carrier. The company’s website gave the details about the product and was accepting pre-orders. Microsoft store has also been accepting orders for this device. However, an AT&T kiosk in North Carolina’s Greensboro inadvertently sold the device for $540. The device is also being sold by other stores but at the announced price.
