The Lumia 1520 launch has been pushed back to November 22, and the device will now launch alongside the Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet and the Xbox One.
November 22 is going to be a busy day for Microsoft.
The AT&T version of the Lumia 1520 was ousted by Microsoft earlier this week, and while it has been revealed that the device will launch on November 15, that date has been pushed back to November 22. The day also marks the launch of the Xbox One console in the U.S. It looks like Microsoft also intends to launch Nokia’s Windows RT tablet, the Lumia 2520, on the same day as well.
Inventory listings indicate that Verizon will start selling the Lumia 2520 tablet from November 22, with the carrier getting red and black color variants, and 32 GB internal memory and LTE. The tablet will retail for $499, although Verizon intends to sell it for $399 as a Black Friday deal.
AT&T will start selling the 16 GB Lumia 1520 for $199 on a two-year contract, and the device will retail for $549. AT&T will sell black, white, yellow and red color variants. The Lumia 2520 will also go on sale on AT&T from November 22, with the carrier stocking the 32 GB black variant which has LTE. There has been no mention of when the cyan and white variants of the Lumia 2520 will be available.
Finally, Microsoft will launch its next-generation gaming console, the Xbox One, on the same day in the U.S. The Xbox One will come bundled with a new Kinect 2 sensor, and will cost $499. Launching these products a week before Black Friday means that they will come with additional deals and offers, which will be disclosed in the coming weeks.
