Nokia said to be shopping for carrier to have exclusive on hero phone; 6 inch phablet coming?
posted by Alan F. / May 03, 2013, 3:02 AM
While the Nokia Lumia 928 is set to be introduced this month by Verizon, this model would seem the logical choice to be the hero phone mentioned by Elop. But with some comments made by Chief Financial Officer Timo Ihamuotila focusing on imaging, perhaps the hero phone will be the oft-rumored Nokia Lumia EOS model which is purportedly a Windows Phone flavored handset with a 41MP camera on back. This would be the same sensor used by the rear camera on the Symbian powered Nokia 808 PureView.
Another interesting piece of gossip came from Mobile Today Magazine, which said that Nokia will launch a phablet in the fourth quarter of this year. The 6 inch device will be priced in a range of £400 to £500 ($621 USD to $776 USD) powered by Windows Phone 8. Nokia's CEO Elop stated that he was willing to experiment with different form factors. "We have a lot of juice ahead, as it relates to the Lumia product lines," noted Elop.

Ok people please stop crying about WP, this is the way it is nothing you can change with your tears! I am glad Nokia did not go for Android, WP is way faster and snappier than Android. And no i do not own a WP device i use ICS and Meego, but i played with some WP devices. My nex phone will be a Nokia.....i am waiting for the EOS. Also i might the Jolla phone.

WP isnt really bad.. i find it bad for nokia! coz we all know that nokia is the REAL LEADER in innovation and they marry software and hardware perfectly that it could last up to 10 years! my sister bought 6630 last 2004 then 3 years after she pass it down to me (since we are not rich and i love having it around!) then i pass it to my father (yes, you heard that right i pass it to my father) and he is still using it up to now!! still rocking!!! WP is bad for nokia coz people know that they are the best in everything mobile related! so an OS that isnt their's is not good for nokia's image! coz its still the best if they have their own OS/software! so i am really angry to nokia to ditch symbian instead of rewriting it, i mean they have sources even back in 2009/2010 when they saw that symbian's sales is climbing down! or just continue meego!! meego is an awesome software even in just version 1! and people and critics alike love the N9!

I hope and pray that WP leaps to the first spot so bad that it'll leave people like you speechless!! I'm tired of reading comments like yours...if they are dying, why is it on the news about the growth of the OS?? You can be an analyst that never has a clue!!

+1. I see more Nokia smartphones in a MS store than anywhere else. Carrier exclusives are hurting Nokia sales. The exclusive cuts out the non-exclusive carrier customers, which is just plain dumb.

I hope Nokia will never user Android, Androis is not a good os in my opinion, and yes i own Droid device. Android is slow, laggy an still has a lot of bugs. And project butter fot JB....please my girl has a Experia T, i upgraded her phone from ics to JB and geus what the phone lags even more, sound is gone often or her alarm is not riging. Or the device changes the time automatically to some random time! So no Android for me anymore!
