Nokia's new 6-inch Windows Phone is currently available for pre-order at AT&T and the Microsoft Store.

The Microsoft Store, meanwhile, is enticing buyers with $70 worth of app vouchers and free copy of Halo: Spartan Assault. Preorder customers also get a flip cover worth $40 (the fine print).
The phone is also later headed to Hong Kong, Singapore, China, U.K., France, Germany, Finland, and other markets.)
The Lumia 1520 is the first to ship with a new three-column Start screen and latest version of Windows Phone 8; the first powered by a quad-core processor; and the first to sport a full 1080p high-definition screen.
Nokia has also paid a lot of attention to imaging. So the phone includes a 20 megapixel PureView camera that leverages many of the innovations found in the Lumia 1020 x including optical image stabilization, oversampling technology to capture more detail, and lossless digital zoom. Four built-in microphones provide directional stereo recording capability. The Lumia 1520 has 16 GB of onboard storage, and supports microSD cards up to 64 GB. AT&T said today it was also planning to offer an expanded-memory Lumia 1520 with 32 GB of internal memory in the near future.
The Lumia 1520 also debuts alongside a roster of new Nokia photo apps. The new Nokia Camera, for example, combines two of Nokia's most popular stand-alone apps - Nokia Pro Camera and Nokia Smart Camera - and makes it easier to switch between camera modes and preview setting changes in real-time.
