Nokia Lumia 1520 Price, Release Date, Specs: AT&T Online Offers Phone for $99.99 [Video]
Looks like the Holiday shopping season might have arrived early for mobile carrier AT&T. AT&T cut the price of the Lumia 1520 smartphone from $199.99 to $99.99 as long as the consumer signs a two-year contact with the mobile carrier.
The price cut is a web-exclusive deal as the device is not available in stores yet. According to AT&T, the Lumia 1520 will begin its shipments on Nov. 19, however, it is unknown if the $99.99 price tag will expire once the date arrives.
AT&T's other contract plans do not offer much of a discount. AT&T's one-year contract does not have a web special. It will cost the consumer $449.99.
The month-to-month option with AT&T will cost the consumer $584.99, which is the full price for the Lumia 1520.

According to the online Microsoft Store, the Lumia 1520 will not be shipped until Nov. 22.
