now 1$= Approx 63 inr.
now nokia's universal price of l1320 is $339= 21,357 inr. and vat on smartphone is 6% i.e. 1,280 inr.
so l1320 price+vat= 22,640 inr. got it.

Check out the international $ prices & price charged in India (in INR). Convert back the amount into $ & check out the difference between Indian price & international price. I am sure it will be much more. Normal import tax rate for electronic items in India is 30%.

FHD screen (although it's "only" a 5.7 inches one), a much more demanding OS, a quad core processor and an inferior battery but still manages to offer one hell of a battery life, the 1320 might be the smartphone with the best battery life ever! Finally!
I might be able to watch movies/tv shows/anime and read books/manga without worrying about running out of juice and, thanks to the ClearBlack technology, to do so even in the brightest sunny days! Now if only this phone had a better camera... The 1520 has an amazing one but it costs a lot more, plus it will probably have a great but worse battery life...
This is a very nice phone but it will probably launch in India and China first. So for Europe we have to wait longer I'm afraid. Q1 launch in India or China means probably end of Q2 launch here.

Just compared specs on 1520 & 1320 they both
use same 3400mah battery, 1520 has 1080 p screen n quad core chip. My question on battery life. Why doesn't
1320 give better battery life. Just curious!!
This is the story of no Ecosystem.
I swithed back from wp8, its not for me.
Anonymous, 10 Nov 2013Well done,why the pixels of camera so small and use only one led flash.This is not a flagship phone, if you want the flagship with the high end camera then you need to wait for the 1520 variant to come out. This is supposed to be a low cost-middle end phone for the customers that don't want or need all the bells and whistle.
Windows phone 8.0 smartphones may not be upgradeable to 8.1 http://www.computerworld.com/s...eable_to_8.1
i think this device will be a massive hit in asia.
Lets look at the positive and negative sides of nokia lumia 1320
6 inch display
Clear black ips display
corning glass 3
8 gb internal memory
We dont know yet how much free memory from built in rom.and i think 5mp camera is also not so impressive
1gb ram is enough to run enough apps and games and we know dual core processor are also enough to run windows 8.
This phone is intended to asian markets where screen size is chosen for multimedia capabilities
