Nokia's new Lumia phablets and tablet

Nokia's new Lumia phablets and tablet
Today was not only iPad day. A bit earlier, Nokia held its own special event at which it announced its first Windows Phone-powered phablets and tablet. Starting off with the phablets in the Lumia 1520 and Lumia 1320, Nokia has made sure to have a little something to both customers who'd pay for a premium mobile experience, and those who would still enjoy a large screen but at a lower price.

The Lumia 1520 will be Nokia's top-shelf phablet. It'll sport a massive 6-inch LCD IPS display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920, along with some mighty hardware under the hood, including the Snapdragon 800 chipset and the ambitious 20.7 MP PureView camera. On the other hand, the Lumia 1320 will also offer a true phablet experience to consumers, but at a lower price, due to its 720 x 1280 display, weaker Snapdragon 400 SoC and other features that ultimately prevent the 1320's armor from shining as brightly as the one of the 1520.

Alongside its phablets, Nokia has also introduced its first Windows tablet - the Lumia 2520. It's a 10.1" 1080p tablet, armed with Snapdragon 800, LTE, an alluring price-tag of $499 and what not, but there's a "catch" - it'll be running Windows 8.1 RT, which means users will have access to a relatively limited catalog of software applications.

tbh the only one I'm remotely interested in is the 1520. I'm not sold on anything rt right now but hope it turns out for them. Then there's the 1320... nothing at all interesting for that one.. If I didn't have a phablet already I might be interested in picking up the 1520 but I just got a note 3. Maybe if a smaller variant that could replace my 1020 then. I hope they take care of the gears of death issue that killed two 920 s and one 1020 gets fixed and addressed.

Good stuff from Nokia - I'm a bit skeptical on the tablet ( windows RT) one of the phablets will do well. I don't know about the 1020 but the 1320 looks like it will sell a ton. INokia make some beautiful designed phone with plastic. I don't care what (John V ) phone arena says Nokia was the real manufacture to "make plastic Kool again" not Apple with the 5c. Cringe every time I recall that terribly bias 5c review.

The Lumia 1320 will sell well. However the Lumia 1520 is a beast!! If someone offered me the choice to pick only one phone out of Apple 5S, Samsung Note 3 and Nokia Lumia 1520. I would pick the Lumia 1520 every single time. Look at it, it is a beauty. When i get my hands on one, my life will be that little more pleasurable :)

@wild... Exactly what i was thinking. And i think that will be the flagshp coz its more reasonably sized. Plus its destined for America's largest carrier. Anyways thought i think nokia did a good thing releasing the 1320... Cant say much about the rest of the line-up inspite of the fact that i'm like the biggest nokia fannatic.

Try adding a few zeros to that number. Microsoft will soon own Nokia's D&S, and are going to dedicate hundreds of millions worth in advertising for the WP8 platform. Some of you people just don't seem to get it...
