  • The Nokia Lumia 1520 is a 6″ beast and here’s a picture of it

    Nokia's dead right? A forgotten company eaten by the giant Microsoft machine. No, as Microsoft quietly digests Nokia, phones like this, the massive Nokia 1520, leak out of the digital orifices. EVleaks pulled this sneaky shot from the nether and posted it to twitter. Nokia Lumia 1520, 2013 pic.twitter.com/asZhT2YVsH— @evleaks (@evleaks) September 6, 2013 Here's a closeup: Now let's tell you about this phone with a 6-inch display and we reported on it ages ago. The Lumia 1520 was originally called "the bandit" but that's a damn stupid name, 1520 is much better. It sounds enormous. And it is. The 6" display...

  • From smartphone to smart car: Nokia launches HERE Auto

  • Nokia’s Lumia 1520 ‘Bandit’ 6-inch giant reportedly leaked

    If you've read our review of the Nokia Lumia 920 you'll know it's incredibly chunky. You should also know by now that Nokia isn't scared of announcing fat screen smartphones like the 4.7-inch Lumia 625. Today, the Nokia 1520 which is also known as Nokia's Bandit phablet, has allegedly been photographed -- and it's all kinds of big. Nokia Bandit = Lumia 1520— @evleaks (@evleaks) August 27, 2013 Not only does it have a ridiculously scraping-by-tablet-territory sized display, it's also expected to have impressive high-end specs which is something the Lumia 625 lacks. According to Windows Phone Central, it will host...

  • Rumoured Nokia 10.1″ Windows RT tablet is all sorts of wrong

    We didn't like the Surface RT, it's one of the worst mistakes ever made by Microsoft outside of the Zune. It even cost it US$900-million in losses. So why Nokia wants to make a Windows RT tablet, its first official tablet to boot, is a mystery for us. Let's then hope that this rumour, from Digi-Wo stays that way. The report is translated from Chinese, but despite the language barrier, there's no denying the specs. What we have here is a 10.1-inch tablet that will have a 2.1Ghz CPU, a 1080p display with "5-point touch screen body", 32GB storage and...

  • Nokia’s Lumia 1020: a great camera, but is that enough?

    In New York, Nokia’s just launched the Lumia 1020, a massive phone with a 4.5-inch display and a crazy 41-megapixel sensor. It could be Nokia’s most ambitious phone yet, but do you still really care about gimmicky features that you’ll only use every so often? Nokia’s making a play with some serious imaging hardware, but will this be a phone for the everyday user? We posted the specs and hardware earlier, so it’s up to Nokia to wow us with a few surprises at least. Here’s what the Nokia Lumia 1020 is all about: “200 years ago, photography was born,” began...

  • The first Windows Phone with a 41MP camera: Nokia 1020 press pics leak

    Update: Indian tech site Puhelinvertailu has wrangled the leaked spec sheet. We’ve embedded it below. It seems that Nokia just can't keep a secret. From the screen shots and low light test photos to the full specs and the shaky video of the camera, we've been given quite a lot of information on a phone Nokia is only officially launching later today. Windows Phone manager Joe Belfiore was even kind enough to inadvertently confirm that the device will be called the Lumia 1020, by posting photos taken with the phone to his Flickr account. But now there's more: The Verge has...

  • Nokia 207, 208 are its best budget 3G phones yet

    Nokia does a lot to upset us, such as releasing brick shaped Lumia’s into the wild. It also does a lot to make us feel alright with the world, such as releasing the 3G-powered Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 in dual and single-sim flavors (the phones now support micro-SIM only). The phones will cost roughly US$68, will come in red, cyan, white, black and will ship Q3 2013. Nokia’s calling the 207 and 208 contemporary designs for its classic "candybar” range of phones. These are ultra-cheap phones with a 3G kick and for many, this will be their first 3G-enabled...

  • Lumia 920 review: It’s big, it’s really big, but oh so sexy

    Turns out if you say "I haven't used a Windows Phone" loud enough someone will send you one. While floating about in my quasi-world of "I know everything imaginable because my iPhone is awesome" a giant Nokia Lumia 920 landed on my lap. I can't stress this enough -- this phone is big. I am not sure what Nokia was trying to do here -- take us back to the old days where phones were as big as a person's head? Design: it’s all kinds of beautiful Getting away from my size issues for a moment, the Lumia is a breath of...
