* $229 after a $50 mail-in rebate (Cricket Visa Promotion Card)

Nokia’s Lumia 1320 was announced way back in October of 2013, but it is just now reaching U.S. shores. Cricket Wireless announced this week that the smartphone would be available on its network starting tomorrow for $229 after a $50 mail-in rebate. Most importantly, that price is for a device not tied to an annual contract.
 
As for the Lumia 1320, its most impressive spec is its gargantuan display that measures a whopping 6 inches. However, everything else is decidedly “run of the mill” starting with the fact that the 6-inch display is only 720p. Other features include a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB of storage, microSD expansion slot, and a 5MP rear camera.

 

 
The Lumia 1320 of course runs Windows Phone 8, but will be upgradeable to Windows Phone 8.1 when it is released.
 
"With the Nokia Lumia 1320 we are providing big value to customers at a budget friendly price," said Andy Smoak, Cricket Wireless AVP of Product.
 
For those that are underwhelmed with the Lumia 1320’s specs, the Lumia 1520 also features a 6-inch display, but bumps the resolution to 1080p and a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor.

Correction and Clarification

Slight correction and clarification

- A minimum service (e.g. 1 month) is required at time of purchase.
- the $50 rebate also requires service
- this device carries at&t bands and is the latin American version RM-995
- device also has tmo 4G bands

I like the device as a tweener between larger size tablet and smaller phone
- very few tablets will have/support all the sensors at this price point.
- the largest sacrifice is the camera but at this price point it is middle of the pack. no tablet except maybe lumia 2520 comes close
- no one has mentioned battery life. some people are reporting up to fours days with normal use
- if you compare prices, this a good deal
