Hear ye, hear ye, all you naughty kids (and grownups) “rewarded” for your less than outstanding deeds by Santa with big, smelly lumps of coal. There’s a way to score something sweet before the year’s end after all.
Amazon appears intent on keeping the Christmas magic going and wants to play St. Nick a little while longer. The online retailer has savagely slashed the on-contract price of AT&T’s Nokia Lumia 1520, and the stellar 6-inch phablet now goes for just $49.99.
The catch? You’ll need to sign up to a new two-year pact with the carrier, as upgrading customers will be asked to cough up twice the dough: $100. A solid deal too, since Ma Bell charges $199.99 via its online and offline stores, both with fresh agreements and for existing network users.
Outright and SIM-free, the Windows Phone continues to be quite pricey, at $629 through Amazon and $585 with AT&T, though there’s really no reason to fear long-term commitments. Sure, you can’t predict how the mobile landscape will look 48 months from now, but trust me, the Lumia 1520 is to definitely stand the test of time.
The thing runs on Windows Phone 8, is powered by a sensational quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, sports a Full HD panel and, the cherry on top, a 20 MP rear-facing camera with Carl Zeiss optics, dual-LED flash and optical image stabilization.
