First Nokia Lumia 1520 Bandit screenshot surfaces: Live Tiles galore
The Nokia Lumia 1520, Nokia’s (or should we now say Microsoft’s?) first phablet is expected to get official soon, but the first screenshot allegedly coming from the device earlier referred to as the Nokia Bandit has leaked out. And wow there is a ton of Live Tiles there!

The Lumia 1520 will support six small live tiles in a row, up from four in Windows Phone devices so far. This is a 50% increase in the maximum number of apps you can fit on its display.

Question remains whether we can really trust that this screenshot is coming from the Nokia Lumia 1520. It’s hard to say, but given the good track record of @evleaks who obtained the image and its realistic looks, we’re inclined to think it’s true. The image also agrees with a previous leak allegedly showing Nokia’s phablet.

The Lumia 1520 is expected to sport a 6-inch 1080p display. Nokia is expected to unveil the device at a huge event in New York at the end of September.

Live tile on that big screen look stunning.
But we need something more than that else it will be same as people would say about iPhone "another row of icon" instead it will be tiles.
i hope some standout phablet features like a pen/stylus with cool features.

Personal opinion, i'm no longer interested in it. Since nokia phones are not made by nokia anymore i feel i'm no longer attached to the brand. Looks great tho, hope it sells well

To me, it looks ghastly (not as bad as a pregnant Kim Kardashascream, but a close second)! Why can't Microsoft just give us Windows 8 on a damn phone with "Desktop" mode, why does it have to be so contrived and hideous, oh, and impractical!!? Please, Steve B retire soon; let a younger generation (with hair) taketh over?

It was called windows mobile man.. It didn't work. I agree Steve needs to go though, bring in some all star stud that's young and has new ideas

Actually, it was working until they screwed up with Windows Mobile 5 and followed that up with Windows Mobile 6. Windows Mobile 2003SE was successful, even at the height of Crackberry addiction, of course, before the iThing. One huge mistake Microsoft (Steve) made in addition to WinMo 5/6 was allowing the OS to be certified for smaller devices; after the Audiovox 6600 (or, Blue Angel for some), Windows Mobile Smartphones got smaller and were plagued with a host of hardware issues and, hence, they lost marketshare. I said it years ago, someone (I'm not going to say who but, you know who) should have been fired back in 2008 for not doing enough market research to establish what the consumer wanted in a smartphone. That's why that dreaded iThing was so successful at first; it was certainly iNnovative for its' time (not anymore though), you could do just about everything on it, e.g., surf web, email, play music (with good sound), watch videos/movies (with good picture quality - for the time), text without a problem, etc; you could do everything on it that Windows Mobile was struggling with [dangle preposition]…

Here are just some examples of Windows Mobile Phones gone wrong:
HTC 6700 / XV6700
HTC 6900 / XV6900
HTC 6850 / XV6850 Touch Pro 1 (disaster)

Here are some reviews on good old PhoneArena going back to as early as November 2008 (read through them):

I thought the Touch Pro 2 (XV6875) would vindicate Microsoft - NOT; sent mine back after one week.

Logged in just so I could like this. I mean seriously. the screen is large enough, the device should be powerful enough, why not put Windows 8 on it? Scaling should be fixed with Windows 8.1 and the whole "phone" aspect (with regards to hardware) shouldn't be too difficult to impliment, right? It would be so powerful yet so compact!

Yup, I've been saying that for 6 years now. We'll just have to wait for the Balld'man to retire.

Nope, they will retain the nokia lumia name. People will be confused after flooding the market with the Nokia name. It won't be easy just to change the name.

Since the deal will not be approved or finalized by the time this is announced, I imagine this will still be a Nokia branded device.

Have you ever heard of Google RAZR when Google bought Motorola? The same thing will go with this deal. Nokia will always be Nokia, just like Motorola will always be Motorola.. MS is doing it the Google way, not the Apple way. Meaning, different OEM partners for their OS, but has one "owned" manufacturer.

The customized home screen looks great. I don't really think
a 6" phablet will fit a windows phones.

Cool & Wow, see those lovely-lively tiles on such a giant screen, just awesome.

I'm damn sure that the phone's name will remain 'Nokia Lumia 1520' only and not MS Lumia 1520.
