One of Nokia’s popular smartphone/tablet (or phablet) devices – the Lumia 1320 – will finally be making its way to the US this week courtesy of the folks at Cricket Wireless according to a recent announcement by the company.
Cricket Wireless, the prepaid branch of AT&T, will be the only retailer (for now) to sell Nokia’s second phablet in the US and it will be the first phablet to join Cricket’s line-up of devices.
“Our expanding lineup of new and popular phones on top of a nationwide, reliable network offering more 4G LTE coverage than Sprint, T-Mobile, and Metro PCS, period, is a differentiator mobile customers will enjoy every day,” said Andy Smoak, Cricket Wireless AVP of Product. “With the Nokia Lumia 1320 we are providing big value to customers at a budget friendly price.”
The Nokia Lumia 1320, which was originally announced back in October 2013, features a 6-inch IPS LCD display with a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The screen also features Nokia’s ClearBlack display which improves the readability even in high glare conditions. The Lumia 1320 is equipped with a 5-megapixel rear camera that’s capable of shooting 1080p videos at 30fps while the phablet’s front-facing camera is a simple VGA resolution shooter.
On the inside, the Lumia 1320 features a powerful dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot which supports up to 64GB, and a 3400 mAh battery which gives the Lumia 1320 a battery life of up to 21 hours of talk time. Connectivity-wise, the Lumia 1320 supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooh 4.0, and LTE.
The Nokia Lumia 1320 will be available online and at any of Cricket’s 3000 retail stores starting on June 13. Interested consumers can get the Lumia 1320 for a no-contract price of $229.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate Cricket Visa® Promotion Card* or through Cricket’s monthly plan starting at $35/month.
