Nokia Lumia 1520 launch delayed after Microsoft deal

Nokia has apparently delayed the launch of the Lumia 1520, Reuters is reporting. Originally planned for late September, the Finnish company has pushed back the launch by several weeks. Reuters could not confirm a new date, and a Nokia spokesman declined to comment.

The report says that Nokia took this step on the heels of a deal to sell its handset business and license patents to Microsoft. While waiting for that transaction to be closed, Nokia will continue to function as a separate company, though without Stephen Elop, who has stepped aside to avoid potential conflicts of interest.

For those of you living under a rock, you should know that the Lumia 1520 will come with a 6-inch full HD screen, fast quad-core chip (perhaps Snapdragon 800?), 20-megapixel camera on the back, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It was suggested that AT&T and Verizon Wireless will sell the phablet in the U.S.
