The Nokia Icon offers the same high end specs seen on the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, albeit with a more pocketable 5 inch screen. An earlier report gave Microsoft's purchase of Nokia's Devices and Services business as the reason for the delay. According to this report, Verizon wants to deal with just Microsoft and not with Nokia as well. This way, Big Red and Microsoft can work on a cohesive marketing plan for the phone without worrying if another company is on board with it.
On the other hand, this could be a spot for the Rich Recording capabilities on the Nokia Lumia 1520. The Finnish manufacturer has already released a short 17 second video for the feature, which should also be found on the Nokia Icon.
- Display 5.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels

- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, Quad-core, 2200 MHz
- Storage 32 GB
- Battery 2420 mAh(16.4h 3G talk time)

He is right. I feel disgusted when I saw Windows Phone logo under the great Nokia name. I love Nokia but I hate Mictobitch

Comments like yours is what annoys me about uninformed individuals who give opinions without actually doing some research beforemaking such comments, had you done that you would have known that all 32,000 Nokia employees are now a part of Microsoft as part of the deal and that they will indeed be working on future Lumias. Now you know cowboy. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/news/press/2013/sep13/09-02announcementpr.aspx

Where did I say that they weren't going to be MS employees? I said good luck if all of them stick around. No matter how you try to put your fanboy spin on it, Microsoft handsets will not be Nokia handsets. Bunch of Herbert's on this site these days...

The engine sound just doesn't make much sense. It would have been more of a teaser to show a brief fly-over glimpse of a part of a device body.

We're all going to laugh at your comment when Nokia unveils their new smartphone with a built-in diesel generator and a 20 liter fuel tank. What we heard in the clip was someone starting their new Lumia, then running away. Huzzah, no more need to worry about battery life! Innovation!

Perhaps the idea is - being that the sound in the back is most probably from a muscle-car engine - that the idea they're trying to go with is - "Do you hear what's coming"- Answer being - something powerful, by the sound of the roars from the engine - 1820 maybe?
