Nokia Lumia 1320 phablet on sale in a few days.
The Nokia Lumia 1320 was unveiled as long ago as October last year and we were beginning to wonder when it would arrive in the good old UK.
The phablet will at last go on sale on 24th February with EE, Vodafone, Virgin Mobile and Carphone Warehouse plus a number of online retailers. Nokia did not confirm a price, but it can currently be bought SIM free for around £260.

Conor Pierce, VP of Nokia UK said “Consumers and particularly businesses will love its large screen, warm industrial design and the richer imaging experience it is able to deliver. The Nokia Lumia 1320 brings a cost effective addition to our large screen Windows Phone portfolio.”
The Lumia 1320 runs on Windows Phone 8 and packs a 6 inch IPD display. However, in a cost cutting exercise the display has been downgraded from the 1520x1080 Full HD display in the Lumia 1520 to 1280x720.
The mid range phablet is powered by a 1.7-inch dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor running at 1.7GHz and comes with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, expandable up to 64GB by microSD.
The Lumia 1320 has a 5 megapixel camera which when combined with the Nokia Camera app produces adequate snaps but is not quite up to the standard of the higher end lens that comes with the Lumia 1520.
3G reviewed the Nokia Lumia 1320 recently and our reviewer commented “You get what you pay for with the Nokia Lumia 1320. Having Windows Phone 8 on a 6 inch screen for only around £250 is great, but a lot of corners were cut to manage it".
Were not quite sure what Nokia are up to by putting the Lumia 1320 on sale at the same time as Mobile World Congress kicks off and the day when the Samsung Galaxy S5 is to be announced. The Lumia 1320 is likely to be lost in a storm of high-profile smartphone, phablet and tablet announcements.
