    Well to my understanding the 32gb international model comes with built im wireless charging (from what I've heard anyway). Yes it is missing the 1700mhz Lte band for AWS but it has the 2600mhz band which Rogers rolled out last year. I live as downtown as I possibly can so there's no reason why I shouldn't catch that 2600mhz band 95% of the time. The estimated shipping date by the way was also recently updated. It originally said November 23-25. Now it only says November 25.
    It has an LTE 2600 band but which one. There are 2 different versions. Rogers uses the advanced 2600. I don't know which one this is.

    I didn't know there was more than one. To my knowledge it should work. Worst case is I send it back.

    It's worse than that. LTE is crazy. There are 2 bands to every frequency. Assigned to the upper and lower range. Then there is more than one way for them to implement it. The normal way like under band 4 which had a maximum speed of around 50mbits or advanced like they are using in the 2600 range with speeds up to 100mbits.

    I spoke to a 3rd party customer satisfaction survey rep, acting on behalf of Rogers and I was told by him that the 1520 would be released by end of this month or in the beginning of the next.

    I would love to believe that. But I think I'll have to see it to believe it. If that's true I'll cancel my pre-order for the international model in a heartbeat.

    Is this the unlocked international version that Negri is also selling, or is this a model for Rogers/another Canadian carrier?

    I am in USA at the moment, and would love to pick up the 1520 before I return to Canada. Is there any US model that would work on Telus because, you know, they are not exactly leading when it comes to WP8.
    Thanx.

    Unlocking the ATT model should work on Telus. Or you could buy the international unlocked model as well once it's available.

    Hello fellow Canadians. The phone is already available in Canada for $885 and ready to order according to expansys.ca

    Nokia Lumia 1520 (Unlocked, 32GB, Black) #LUMIA1520BLK - EXPANSYS Canada

    I am not sure which variant this is, though. I am interested in the RM-938 variant which comes with the 1700/2100 AWS band.

    Shall I buy, or wait for the Rogers variant which will most probably be RM-938? Hmmm ...

    The one at Expansys is RM-937 with the Euro/Asia/Oceania bands rather than RM-938 with the North American bands.

    I would wait it out a few more weeks and sew if Rogers announces it. Trust me, I know how hard it is to be patient right now. I originally preordered the unlocked model but cancelled it last week after I realized I was spending $900 on a phone that will potentially come here for substantially less.


    Give it till mid December and if nothing has been announced yet I'd look around for a compatible unlocked model.

    Agree. I will be waiting for the Rogers variant. I can pass the time with my new Xbox One anyway :D

    The provided link is for any here who want to know about the Lumia 1520 Model variants and the Networks and Connectivity detail...

    Nokia Lumia 1520 (RM-937, RM-938, RM-939) - Reviews and Full Specifications

    Additionally, from Engadget.com as of mid-November 2013...

    At the time of this writing, the Lumia 1520 has only been announced on one US carrier, but it's widely available in other parts of the world. There are three different model numbers, each offering compatibility with different networks. Each variant has quad-band GSM/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900) and at least four HSPA+ bands (850/900/1900/2100), but AT&T's model (the RM-938) comes with a fifth band for AWS, technically making it compatible with T-Mobile's HSPA+ network. Only two of the models come with LTE: the RM-937, which features compatibility with five bands (800/900/1800/2100/2600), and the RM-938, which offers support for a different set of five bands (2, 4, 5, 7, 17). Those mainly serve AT&T and T-Mobile in the US. (Update: We didn't clearly state another pair of differences on the AT&T version versus the global units. The AT&T option only comes with 16GB internal storage and wireless charging requires an optional cover, whereas the global models are 32GB and have the capability built-in.)

    My question is... What would Rogers add to their version of the Lumia 1520 [ if ] that the Expansys.ca Lumia 1520 would be missing?

    Supposedly, there's a RM-938 US variant is on sale on eBay:

    Nokia Lumia 1520 Black 32GB RM 938 Unlocked 6" GSM 3G 4G Windows 8 Cell Phone | eBay

    I say "supposedly" because the specs in the description don't math the official RM-938 specs.

    For interested Canadians, a Toronto-based company is currently selling the RM-938 model of this phone, which according to their website and the specs they listed works also on carriers like Wind and Mobilicity.

    Canada GSM | Nokia Lumia 1520 6 inch Phablet Windows 8 20MP Unlocked

    For $599 CAD this sounds like the real deal. I contacted them and they told me it's possible to purchase and pickup the phone directly in their office in Mississauga, saving on the shipping cost.

    If by April 19 no new/better Lumias are announced I will most probably be going with this one. My pocket is ready!

    I bought an RM-937 from Easy Cell in Richmond, BC. The phone was pricy but I wasn't going to wait on the off chance a Canadian carrier releases it. Sold the Note 3 and don't regret it for a second. LTE works fine with Fido too and I get 32gb of storage, which is expandable, and Qi wireless charging. Perfect!
