Just found this...
As usual, the Nokia phones first come at AT&T network and this time would not be different as rumors claimed. It is reported that Nokia Lumia 1520 will be released on October 22 and arrive in global market include Canada on November 8.
Looks like AT&T is getting the nokia lumia 1520 on Nov 15th.
i will be disappointed if rogers isn't getting the phone on the same day or at least close to it.
i know a bunch or people that want it as well so rogers will definitely get some new subscribers if they get it on time.
Hello to you,
And, yes, there's no shortage of statements and opinions and such out there as to the Lumia 1520 being released in Canada. I definitely want this phone. My original was a Lumia 920 and I liked, a LOT, the hardware and the Windows Phone O/S but gave the phone to a lady friend and bought, in its place, a Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I definitely wanted the larger display and was willing to try the Android O/S. I discovered that while I really liked the size of the display I really DISLIKED (1) the fact that the display could not be used with gloves on [ I'm a cyclist ], (2) the display was almost unreadable outdoors in sunlight, (3) the Android O/S in general and (4) the phone's physical Home button [ much preferring the Lumia's virtual buttons ]. The 1520 IS coming to Rogers according to 'teaser statements' on Facebook. It will be the perfect phone for me! SO looking forward to it!
Not sure what to do now. I've been until the impression Rogers has not been interested in getting the 1520. But my gut tells me they will... eventually.
I pre-ordered the international unlocked 32GB 1520 (with built in Qi Wireless charging unlike the AT&T model) but paid a hefty price for it. In fact so much that I feel guilty about it lol. It's also supposedly in stock and shipping around the 25th of Nov. However, I'd much rather have it from Rogers because I can just upgrade for a quarter of the price I paid. But my concerns are I don't know when it will arrive on Rogers. And secondly, I don't know if they will be like AT&T and trim the storage to 16GB and lose the wireless charging features. So now I'm expecting this international model and I don't really know what kind of service to expect with it. This one comes with the following bands:
2G Network GSM 850/900/1800/1900
3G Network HSDPA 850/900/1900/2100
4G Network LTE 800/900/1800/2100/2600
So I'm a bit torn.. Do I keep my overpriced pre-order in case Rogers takes a month maybe more or trims the features like AT&T? Or do I cancel it in hopes that it's out in a few weeks? Hmm.
BTW, I read today that someone was told by a 3rd party Rogers employee that Rogers will be getting the 1520 before the end of the month or 1st week of Dec. But I feel like we would have heard something official by now if this were the case.
I too would love to trade up my Nokia 920 (which I love) for a Nokia 1520 (which I crave). My biggest question is whether or not it will be the full international version (32 gb memory, built-in Qi charging) or the crippled American version (16gb; no Qi charging). If the latter, I'll stick w/ my 920.
