Lumia 1520 sells out in Indian debut, all color options snapped up
Nokia's <a href="http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/11/25/nokia.phablet.with.20mp.pureview.camera.out.in.uk. australia.soon/">Lumia 1520 handset</a> appears to have seen initial success following its launch in India. The six-inch, Windows Phone 8-powered phablet has sold through all color options in that country, <em>WinBeta</eM> <a href="http://www.winbeta.org/news/nokia-lumia-1520-sells-out-india-all-color-options-out-stock">notes</a>, just days after its debut. The quick sell-through is surprising, given the Indian market's typical preference for lower cost handsets. <br /><br />Whether the sell-through is driven by high demand, low supply, or a mixture of the two is uncertain, but Nokia's <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/301420==http://nokia.indiatimes.com/nokia/lumia-phones/nokia-lumia-1520-black-/10020/p_B20215?utm_source=Nokia_1520_Slidde_Banner&utm_m edium=Nokiashop&utm_campaign=Nokia_Lumia_1520" rel='nofollow'>pages</a> for the handset show that the red, black, white, and yellow color options are all exhausted. The Finnish phone maker offered the devices at launch with a 17 percent discount off the initial price of INR56,539, instead selling it for INR46,999 (around $760). That is still well above the prices of the best selling devices in the country, low-end handsets from Samsung. <br />

The six-inch device is also out of stock on FlipKart, an Indian online retailer offering the 1520 for INR1,000 less than Nokia. <br />
<br />
The Lumia 1520 has now launched in the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom, as well as India. It will likely be among the last of Nokia's Windows Phone-powered handsets. Microsoft <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/301421==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/03/microsoft.makes.big.step.into.mobile.with.nokia.bu y/" rel='nofollow'>has purchased</a> Nokia's hardware manufacturing business for $7.2 billion, and future Lumia devices will be made under Microsoft's brand.
