Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet now tipped to be introduced on September 26th
According to a tweet from evleaks, the first Windows Phone phablet will be introduced on September 26th. The unit is expected to sport a 6 inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. A quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor is under the hood with 2GB of RAM on board and 32GB of native storage inside. The Nokia Lumia 1520 will sport a microSD slot.

Speculation has the phablet launching in November and it will be the first Windows Phone model to come with the GDR3 update that allows Windows Phone to support 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution screens, and a quad-core Snapdragon processor. Also rumored to be part of the GDR3 update is a Driving Mode that disables certain functions of the phone while you are driving and the phone is paired with the car's bluetooth radio. A rotation lock which freezes the orientation of the phone screen in portrait or landscape, will also be part of the update along with improved mutitasking capabilities and a revised homescreen.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 closes the specs gap with Android and it should be interesting to see if the GDR3 update marks the beginning of a surge in Windows Phone's popularity.
