    The Nokia Lumia 1520 will be available for in-store purchase at AT&T starting today and we're hoping that the stock is healthy. Apparently, those who have ordered or pre-ordered online will get their devices at a later date, both from Microsoft and AT&T, according to some bad news people were receiving via e-mail. "Because of overwhelming demand, your Nokia Lumia 1520 order is delayed in shipping. As soon as your shipping label is printed, we'll send you an email with the tracking information. You can also track your order on our site", says the e-mail. However, Microsoft will ...

    The utility of a supersized screen and the powerful simplicity of Windows Phone, all inside the same casing. Nokia recently elevated that concept from outlandish fantasy to full-on reality with the Lumia 1520, and thanks to the fine folks at Nokia and AT&T, we've finally got our own copy of the world's first Windows Phone phablet! We'll be taking the 1520 for a drive over the next few weeks, but we've got to warn you up front: it might take a little longer than usual for our full review to make an appearance. Due to those troublesome "circumstances beyond our control," the Pocketnow ...

    The Nokia Lumia 1520 is the first ever phablet to be powered by Windows Phone 8. Is it too big? Judging by numbers -- with a screen of six-inches in diagonal -- we might be inclined to say yes, but we'll just wait for our full review to draw a conclusion. As far as the technology inside the Lumia 1520, Jussi Ropo, Nokia Display and Touch technology manager believes that “in terms of technology and providing a great experience to our customers, the Nokia Lumia 1520 has the best screen we’ve ever created. This screen is the culmination of everything we know about how to make ...

    At the beginning of the month, both Microsoft and AT&T have started taking pre-orders for the Lumia 1520. The price was $199 with a two-year contract (and additional goodies thrown in by Microsoft and the carrier) but it appears that AT&T has dropped another $100 from its price. If you follow the source link below to the phone's page on the carrier's website you'll see the Lumia 1520 being listed as available for pre-order at $99.99, with the two-year agreement. The $100 difference is an online discount and should you order, "your Nokia Lumia 1520 will be shipped on November 19, ...

    Not everyone sees the world in the same way. Of course that's plainly obvious if you've ever spent time in the dungeons comment sections of the internet, but it's easy to forget that it's also true in a literal sense. Not everyone sees or hears the same way you might … and that's as true for smartphone users as for anyone else. So what kind of considerations go into buying and using today's mobile technology products when you're visually impaired? What kind of brand wars exist in the world of the blind? Are we going in the right direction with audio cues and glass screens, or were the ...

    Nokia is constantly trying to improve its flagship cameras and also, at the same time, re-confirm its position as a leader in imaging technology and innovation with its smartphones. Currently, the Lumia 1020 is considered by many to be the best camera on a smartphone, and the Lumia 1520, coming shortly to AT&T, will bring a similar experience to a phablet form factor. We've been hearing about RAW image output functionality from Nokia's flagship camera phones for quite some time, and today, the Finns have updated their Nokia Camera app to support just that. The change log is rather ...

    It's not Lytro-like light-field camera, but it's as close as it gets, on your regular smartphone, given it is powered by Windows Phone, and it's a Lumia made by Nokia. The Refocus app from Nokia is now available and it allows you to basically snap a picture now, without worrying about focus, and focus on objects later, again and again. In order to get the best results, you should aim to capture "scenes with a great contrast in the depth of field, like macro shots". The way this works is simple: Nokia Refocus captures two-to-eight independent images of the scene, each at five megapixels, ...

    If you are still undecided on whether to pre-order the Nokia Lumia 1520 from Microsoft or AT&T, the carrier's trying to help you with its latest "Mobile Minute" video of the phone. It should help you push that pre-order button, in case you don't want to wait for our upcoming full review of the phone. We'll remind you of the specs: the first Windows Phone-powered phablet packs a quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM. The screen is a six-inch Full HD unit, and internal storage is capped at 16GB, though there’s a microSD card slot to further expand it. The ...

    After some early pre-order hiccups, the Nokia Lumia 1520 is now back on track, and shoppers interested in picking up the first Windows Phone phablet are busy getting their orders in. We know that the phone will be available in matte black, white, and yellow, as well as glossy red, but if you've got your heart set on that yellow option you might want to hurry, as rumors suggest that there might not be that many to go around. One of WPCentral's sources reports that the yellow 1520 will be “scarce” at launch. Already, we see that Microsoft isn't taking pre-orders for the yellow 1520, ...

    OK, here's a little history about the Nokia Lumia 1520 pre-orders in the US: first there was a pre-order page on the Microsoft Store, then it was taken down because it wasn't supposed to go live at all at that moment. Now we've got a pre-order again. Here's hoping this time it's here to stay. There was speculation concerning availability for the phone but now it appears to be official (you know, like the first time). Anyways, here's the meat of it: you can pre-order your Nokia Lumia 1520 on AT&T from the carrier, as well as from the Microsoft Store. November 22 is the availability date ...

    What the heck is going on with Nokia's Lumia 1520 and the phone's retail availability? We just saw pre-orders open, apparently with the intent to make the handset available on November 15, only to have Microsoft subsequently do an about-face, insisting that the orders went live prematurely, and putting a halt to them. So where does that leave us? Well, if we're to believe the latest leak, the 1520 is still on its way, but just a little later than expected, and should be showing up arm-in-arm with the Lumia 2520. Leaks identify the retail launch date for the 1520 at AT&T as Friday, ...

    Remember we told you yesterday that the Nokia Lumia 1520 for AT&T can be pre-ordered from the Microsoft Store? Well, forget it! According to a recent report, the page went live prematurely and Microsoft has since yanked it; it lived about 12 hours. However, all pre-orders for the phone itself, as well as cover accessories, placed within that window will be honored, according to Microsoft, at the time the phone will become available. Meanwhile AT&T and Nokia both confirmed that the Lumia 1520 will indeed be part of the carrier's line-up -- something we knew from the very beginning ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the Nokia Lumia 1520 reaching AT&T very soon at a very interesting price point. Samsung follows the news as we go through their plans for foldable displays, 4K displays and their custom CPUs for 2014 and 2015. We later talk about Microsoft's possible shortlist for their next CEO. Apple follows in the news, this time because apparently the company has increased production of the iPhone 5S and changed the supplier for the 5C. We end today's show talking about Android 4.4 KitKat reaching other smartphones and already being tested. All this ...

    It will be available in red, white, yellow, and black, and you can grab it for $199 on a two-year contract starting November 15 on AT&T. That's the Nokia Lumia 1520, which was introduced at the Abu Dhabi 2013 Nokia World event on October 22. The price is $549.00 if you prefer to grab the unit without the agreement and, whatever your choice, you can pre-order your phone on the Microsoft Store at the source below. There's no word in international availability just yet, and, those of you who opt for the AT&T flavor should know that this particular model doesn't support wireless ...
