FINNISH PHONE MAKER Nokia's Lumia 1320 phablet has gone up for pre-order at Carphone Warehouse, which will start shipping it on 27 February.
At Carphone Warehouse, the Nokia Lumia 1320 is available to pick up on the EE, O2, Orange, T-Mobile, Talkmobile and Vodafone mobile networks.
For those who don't care about 4G, the cheapest tariff is a 24 month £21 Vodafone contract, which comes with 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 250MB of monthly data. With 4G included, the most affordable tariff is at O2, which is offering the Nokia Lumia 1320 for £27 on a 24 month contract. This comes with unlimited texts and minutes, and 1GB of data.
Carphone Warehouse is promising to send out orders on 27 February, despite Nokia having announced last week that the Lumia 1320 will start shipping on 24 February.
The Nokia Lumia 1320 is also available to pre-order SIM-free in the UK, priced at around £280. Once on sale, the handset will also be available through EE and Virgin Mobile directly.
The Nokia Lumia 1320 is a more affordable version of the Nokia Lumia 1520. The device has a 6in 720x1280 resolution display and a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, a downgrade from the quad-core chip found in the more expensive Nokia Lumia 1520. Unsurprisingly, the handset runs Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 mobile operating systen.
The Lumia 1320 also features 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage expandable up to 64GB via microSD card, a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 3,400mAh battery, which according to Nokia will provide enough power for over 20 hours of constant talk time.
