    So I'm here at the Bridgewater mall. Since pauls write up about the dell venue pro 8 sale, I've made it a point to get here by 5am. I arrived soon after and of course the mall was closed and dark as a thief's night. Doors opened around 5:45 (but no stores were open) and I went in to relieve myself of last nights dinner and wait outside the Microsoft store.

    Here now, nobody here. I guess I'm the first. Btw this store is beautiful. The electric bill alone must be astronomical with all these screens flashing and devices going. So I guess I'm first in line. Hope to finally get my hands on a 1520 with a $50 app card. Anybody else as committed and cost conscious as I, to wake up early and get on line? (or lack there of)

    You're pretty keen.

    Has anyone else shown up yet?

    Nobody else. Just a store employee who is also waiting outside the store, who had to come in early to prep for the days sale. He said their biggest line was for the dell tablet. And that since ppl need upgrades in order to take advantage of the 1020/1520 deal, he didn't expect big lines for them. He's right. I'm the only fool waiting. But I'm a happy fool

    I would hardly call you a fool - this is an AWESOME phone, and you're saving good money! Not to mention getting $50 (+ the $20 from Nokia?) app store credit!

    Trust me, it's a good day to be a fool if you're a fool =)

    Edit: Just saw this - anyone spot a weirdness in the pic of the '1520'?

    Im going to be there right there with you. But I figure there will be plenty at store opening. The upgrade will make this a tough sell for many.

    Good catch! I'm so glad they created the third row for this phone because two rows at that size looks RIDICULOUS!

    Black. Was considering white like my old 920. But my surface pro is black,and my xbox one is black so... felt like matching the three together

    Anyway - out of curiosity: Did you get the $20 Nokia App Store voucher as well?

    I attempted but didn't work. I spoke to Nokia chat and they told me to wait 3 days for my phone to be activated, whatever that means.

    So happy! A co-worker just came to show me her brand new 1520 she got yesterday at the Microsoft store. I told her I hope she enjoys it as much as I am enjoying mine! Her old phone was a Windows phone as well, but was pretty battle worn (not a Nokia). She was so happy because it was no money up front. Great to see others jumping on the 1520 band wagon!
