Cricket Wireless, a prepaid subsidiary of AT&T, announced Tuesday that the Nokia Lumia 1320 will be joining its lineup beginning on June 13. The six-inch phablet runs Windows Phone 8 with 4G LTE support, and is one of the first supersized devices offered on the service in the US.
AT&T bought Cricket’s parent company Leap Wireless last July for $1.2 billion, and just recently relaunched the Cricket brand using its own, broader network.
The Lumia 1320 itself isn’t the highest-end Windows Phone device, but it’s something of a step up over the usual Lumias available on prepaid brands. It comes with 1280 x 720 display, a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, 8 GB of storage with a microSD slot for up to 64 GB more space, and a 5-megapixel camera that features HD video recording and autofocus. The phablet is also equipped with NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 4G LTE and DLNA connectivity. As it’s a Windows Phone 8 device, the Lumia 1320 also comes with various Microsoft apps like Office and SkyDrive.
The unlocked Nokia Lumia 1320 will arrive in bright orange for $279.99 (off-contract, of course), but comes with a $50 mail-in rebate until July 10th, dropping its price down to $229.99.
