A budget phablet?

A quick google suggests the 640XL might also be known as Lumia 1330

Looks pretty good and it is a very good price.. US$245.  I have the 830 which is a great phone, but the 640XL looks impressive.

Not sure, but Nathan will be reading this thread or along to read this thread, so he should be able to tell you more.
But according to where I got the specs, the 640XL goes on sale in various markets this month, NZ might be one of those markets, who knows.

Looks like NFC makes a return, 620 had it, it was dropped for 630 and 635, now back again.

Excellent, that looks like it'll be just what we're looking for in a corporate smartphone. The lack of flash and front camera in the Lumia 635 is irritating...
