    I want to get the 1520, but I am planning on holding out for the 32 GB variant. I'm hoping it isn't too long after Nov 22nd. Just wondering if anyone has heard anything.

    Say 32 Hail Marys to Saint Happening and you might get your wish. Even if it does come it will be without proper Qi charging which is de facto world standard.

    Well, they already said it is coming. So I'm not worried about that. And as far as wireless charging, I couldn't care less. I had it before on my Palm Pre, and i gave it up. It's a nicety that I can do without.

    Apparently I missed that little piece of news. When did they say that? Maybe if we complain enough they'll offer it with Qi. Just a thought.

    Nokia Lumia 1520 now available for pre-order from AT&T, starts at $199 and arrives November 22nd | Windows Phone Central
    "And there’s a little nice surprise from AT&T. While they may still be omitting wireless charging for the Lumia 1520, they are planning on offering a 32GB version of the phone in the near future. No words on pricing or availability for that. When we learn more we’ll definitely share with you guys."

    I doubt complaining will change their minds about the Qi charging since the reason they removed it was because of PMA. I assume the only reason they originally omitted the 32GB was for price, then once they saw a backlash, they figured people wouldn't mind the premium for more storage.

    I just pre ordered a 1520 at a Microsoft store. What surprised me was they asked if I wanted the 32 GB or 16 GB version.

    When I mentioned it shouldn't be available they checked and seemed to confirm that it wasn't available yet. So it does seem it is in their system.

    Yea I do remember seeing that blurb but with no hard detail I figured ATT was just pandering to try and reduce the flack for declawing a fantastic phone. I guess we'll wait and see.

    I think if anything, them saying they are going to release a 32 GB version and then backtracking would cause even more of an uproar then just releasing the 16GB and calling it a day. I would hope that AT&T isn't that bad. But who knows.

    I already figured I'd get a card for photo/video and just live with the 16 GB. I couldn't pass up all the extras that come with the pre-order.

    How is it possible to backtrack from a rumor?

    It isn't a rumor. It is right on Nokia's official post announcing the AT&T pre-orders.

    "in the near future" ... just like in the coming weeks. Like I said, I'll believe it when I see it. Anytime 2 companies, or more, are involved promises are empty until they start shipping. Not that I don't want this to be real I'm just realistic.

    Right. I'm agreeing with you. My only point is that it was stated in an official capacity, not a rumor. Also, if it never materializes (which may happen), it will be worse than if they never mentioned it in the first place.

    releasing their version of the 1520 was worse than if it had never happened in the first place. The scam PMA Incipio case was just insult to injury.

    ^ this. althought I did buy the incipio cyan case (non charging) and a sandisk extreme PRO 16gb card. so, cyan and 32gb total for me I can live with it. it's just, I SHOULDN'T HAVE HAD TO when nokia already built the phone I really wanted.

    Spot on. It kills me to see what ATT did to what would have been a killer device. They made it worse and they didn't have to. Good job ATT. rolleyes

    You guys are getting off topic. We all know that AT&T "ruined" a stellar device. We get it. But I was asking more for information, because, contrary to popular belief, I would rather "feed the beast" and get a device I want, with all of AT&T's features, than spend extra money for a device that is essentially the same but with one additional feature that I don't really care about.

    Doubt it... that would require Nokia making another Qi less variant

    I have 14 gigs of apps now that are ever increasing. A few more games and 16 gigs won't cut it despite the size of the memory card

    Will start mining the gossip mill. A 32GB 1520 will, most likely, truly depend on the response to the 16gb 1520. If it sells beyond expectations, maybe that 32 GB shows up. If the 1520 doesn't sell above expectations with the cheaper price tag, then most likely this is one of those "kinda promised but not really" devices that may never come out.

    Basing a release on the success of a crappy device is pretty ridiculous
