The 6 incher, which was the first Windows Phone to raise the hardware bar with both a Full HD display and quad-core processor, is up for grabs via Microsoft’s online store and brick and mortar retail locations for $99, complete with free $100 bill credit.
That’s right, you agree to sign a new two-year AT&T contract, pay MS 99 bucks, and get the money back within three bill cycles as complimentary credit. Bottom line, though technically the Lumia 1520 is not yet available free of charge, in the long run you won’t cough up a dime for the handheld.
Even better, if you hurry, there’s one little extra incentive to board the Windows Phone 8 bandwagon, namely a 50 percent discount on Nokia Flip Covers. Wow, and to think AT&T still charges $200 through its retail network. Also with $100 free bill credit, but obviously, Microsoft’s deal is a lot more advantageous.
Amazon would have been a decent buying option as well if they kept their recent $50 promotion around, however that’s now gone, and the Lumia 1520 costs $99.99 again, no other special offers included.
