Yesterday Microsoft opened up pre-orders on the Lumia 1520 through its online store, promising to ship the device on Nov. 15, but it looks like Redmond may have acted a bit prematurely. The page disappeared earlier today, and a newly leaked document obtained by Windows Phone Central reveals that Nokia will release the 6-inch phablet on Nov. 22 instead, alongside the Lumia 2520 tablet and Microsoft’s new Xbox One.
It looks like Nov. 22 will be a big day for both Microsoft and Nokia with a new phablet, tablet and gaming console hitting stores all at once in what could be a coordinated launch. The move shows just how close the two companies have become, even before the Nokia buyout is finalized. It should be interesting to see what Microsoft is able to do once buyout is complete.
Neither company has revealed how much the new Windows devices will cost, though Microsoft listed the Lumia 1520 at $199 with a two-year contract or $549 off-contract in its online store before pulling the page. As for the Lumia 2520, the Windows RT tablet is expected to start at $499 off-contract, putting it on par with the iPad Air and just slightly more expensive that the cheapest Surface 2 model.
