Nokia Lumia 1520 can be pre-ordered in Switzerland
The Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet can now be pre-ordered...in Switzerland. The 6 inch Windows Phone 8 model is priced at 849 Swiss Francs ($950 USD) from Swiss retailer Digitec. The first phablet to be powered by the Windows Phone platform will be available in black, white, red and yellow. The device should ship around the end of next month. In the U.S., the Nokia Lumia 1520 will be an exclusive for AT&T.

To refresh your memory, the device offers a 6 inch LCD screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920 and a 368ppi pixel density. Powering the phone is a quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with the Adreno 330 GPU handling graphics. Inside you will find 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. A 64GB capacity microSD slot is available to expand storage, and a rear-facing 20.7MP PureView camera features OIS for photographs and video capture. The 1.2MP front-facing snapper lets you take "selfies".  A phone like this needs a large power source which is why a 3400mAh cell is packed inside.

The GDR3 update comes with this phone out of the box, which means features like the orientation lock can freeze your phone so that it always displays in portrait or landscape, multitaskers can close open apps from the multitasking page by clicking on the "X" on the upper right corner of the app, and Driving Mode will automatically intercept calls and texts sent to you while driving. A pre-written message can be sent via SMS to the person trying to get in touch with you, telling them that you are behind the wheel of your car and cannot answer a call or a text.
