Nokia Lumia Black update bringing new Camera, Storyteller and other features to existing WP8 Lumias

Most of the great apps and features we saw upon the introduction of Nokia's Lumia 1520 and 1320 phablets, are going to arrive for other Windows Phone 8 Lumias as well in early 2014, along with Microsoft;s GD3 update, said Nokia:

This will happen later on, it won’t happen immediately. Some of the key updates for Windows Phone are in GDR3, so the notifications, some of the underpinnings behind it will come through across all devices and be combined together with the Black update.

And we’ll have stuff like Nokia Camera, Storyteller, the lock-screen will be integrated as well – it will be even richer, so you’ll have messaging, email, you’ll have notifications – so we’re really looking at how do we reward our existing consumers.

no GDR3 will come preinstalled on the 1520 and 1320 while if you own any other wp device you have to wait till next year

So WP8 now seems very Nokia-oriented. Great way to kill of business partners Microsoft.

Nokia Lumias have Play To for broadcasting to Smart TVs. I don't remember if the microUSB is MHL, but it probably is. Look it up if it matters.

To me, the Lumia 1520 is the ultimate personal and business phone. Note 3 & 5S cannot compared to this Jedi Master :)

I beg to differ completely. Specs are great, but when it comes down to it Note 3 simply can't be touched.

only thing note have on it is a stylus....it is beat in every field to having real colors to having a bigger battery, to using same chip and we all know Microsoft os is very light so using the same chip that keep note 3 from lagging on a phone that do not lag will only give this phone a performance boost only windows phones can have

the note 3 doesn't lag. the note 3 is smooth and the lumia 1520 is going to be smooth as well so what do you expect? Touchscreen on the lumia to speed up by x100? They're both great devices.

Well 5s is no where in the list....One max only competes in design and fingerprint scanner....ZU lacks in camera, more like a tablet...note 3 competes due to s pen features with android ecosystem...otherwise the camera, battery, speaker, radio, screen size, wireless charging features makes note 3 inferior

Note3 has samsung tag of fame....fame is not long, like case with famous celebrities ....someone always gets better....keep eyes open
