Nokia Lumia 1520 will hit the shelves in the United States next week for $99 with a two-year contract with AT&T. In the US, AT&T has the exclusive rights to sell the Nokia Lumia 1520. Well, if you’re residing the other corner of the world, you could get your hands-on the unlocked version of the phablet for a whopping A$899. Although there’s no confirmation on when it will hit the shelves in Australia officially or via retailers.
According to the folks at MyNokiaBlog, an Australian retailer Harvey Norman is listing Nokia Lumia 1520 for A$899 in its inventory system. Currently, the retailer priced the Nokia Lumia 1020 41MP camera phone for $833, so the price for the gigantic Lumia 1520 seems quite reasonable.
On the other hand, another Australian retailer Mobicity is currently taking pre-orders for the phablet for $959.95, which is higher than the leaked Harvey Norman’s price. Unfortunately, MobiCity didn’t reveal any exact shipment date or the time period when customers can expect the package to arrive at their doorsteps.
While there’s no news from about the availability of the Nokia Lumia 1520 from Australian carriers, it should be noted that it will make its way to Australian shores in the coming months and users might be able to get the handset at a lower subsidized price. Nokia mentioned at the launch event that the handset will hit Hong Kong, Singapore, U.S., China, U.K., France, Germany, Finland and other European markets by the end of 2013, with other markets to follow.
We’ll update you if we get any other information about the launch of the handset in Australia.
