Well how often could they release a high end flagship now that they've got all the screen sizes covered?

Not just 0.5", Full HD also. The 929 will have Full HD 5" screen, but only 20Mpx camera :-(  I'd expect one mid-next year, so will need to get the 1020 in the meantime...

Wonder if Telecom will carry this here? They've taken loads of WP devices.

Hey guys. Requested the unlock. Was wondering if anybody was still interested in this device? Also does anybody have any word on if this will be coming to NZ anytime soon? I am thinking about going from Android-Windows (Havent tried and I want to) but that means dropping my HTC one for something.

Been watching video reviews and reading up on the Lumia 1520. Really want this phone now as it has a great camera, display, battery life and internal specs.

Going to wait till MWC 2014 in February and see if any other WP8.1 device will be announced. Hopefully the Lumia 1520 will drop in price by then at parallel importers.

Expansys.co.nz has it for $800 + GST

Saw this phone at the Microsoft Store in Vegas early this month.

Great looking phone, awesome screen and quality Nokia build.

But for me it is just too big.

I recommend you try to see one before buying as you might find it too big also.

Just my 2 cents.

it seems big, once you use it for a few days, a 625, 920, 925, 1020 seem way too small http://conversations.nokia.com/2014/01/10/lumia-1520-start-screen/

I had word from Nokia not last week ago, that they don't have any plans to release it in New Zealand currently.

Definitely. Wait you have an iPhone??

When I try to use the iPhone review unit compared to the Note, it certainly is small!
