One may argue that Nokia were the first ones to introduce a phablet like creature with the Nokia Communicator back in the day. Samsung with their Galaxy Note have been the ones who have taken that badge recently, and while others have their own versions, we were yet to see a Windows Phone version. Not shying away from the challenge, we recently heard Nokia announce the Lumia 1520, which combines a 6″ HD display with a 20MP camera, and that added space on the screen gives you a 3rd column for live tiles as well!
Some of the features are as follows:
Stunning 1080p HD screen – seamlessly combining both work and play
· 20MP camera – capture amazing images, edit with Refocus and document your files using Nokia Storyteller
· Additional 3rd live tiles column – access even more of your favourite apps from the homescreen
· Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor – faster downloads of your files and games
· 7GB of SkyDrive – free and secure cloud storage to access media files anywhere
· Micro SD support – allows for an additional 64GB of storage
”The application and graphics performance provided by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor allows Nokia to continue creating new and innovative imaging experiences for consumers.” said Raj Talluri, senior vice president of product management for Qualcomm technologies, Inc. “The advanced integration level in the Snapdragon 800 processor means less individual components inside the phone translating to lower power consumption and smaller overall motherboard design, this lets Nokia to package all Windows Phone experiences into a beautifully designed product.”
With all of Windows abilities packed into a fairly reasonable, and yet portable screen, is this the closest you can come to having a computer in your pocket? Guess we’ll have to wait till the general masses start carrying this.
Conor Pierce, VP of UK & Ireland for Nokia said, “The Nokia Lumia 1520 is a stunning device, everyone who tries it instantly falls in love with it which is why it has already received great reviews. Aside from its unrivalled camera I also see it being hugely popular in the B2B space, where productivity really matters.”
With all the other features, one thing you can definitely count on is to be blown away by the camera.
Meanwhile, you can find it from £38 at O2, Vodafone, CPW, Phones4u, and retailers such as Micro P from Friday the 6th of December, 2013.
