    Nokia shocked the world today by actually having a Nokia World event in the twilight of their device manufacturing days. With the door on the phone factory about to close – at least the door with the “Nokia” logo on it - Nokia brought some pretty nice devices to the Windows Phone Lumia lineup, including two new six inch phablets and the oft rumored Nokia tablet. The crowd went wild. Go Nokia! Having said that, I have already made my general disposition toward a Nokia phablet known in a previous editorial. I understand the concept of it. I understand the reasoning behind it. I ...

    Nokia World is finally happening in Abu Dhabi, and it's great to see that the company's new products got announced in time before a competing company stole their thunder. Let's begin with the first-ever Windows Phone phablet to hit the market, the Nokia Lumia 1520. The device is now official, and the device is more than just huge when it comes to news, and size. The Lumia 1520 is also the most powerful Windows Phone to ever be announced. As expected, it is a big phone, with a 6-inch 1080p display, which is already bigger than the HTC One max that we recently had a chance to review. It's ...

    Apple's not the only one with big news coming soon, and in just a matter of hours, Nokia's throwing a Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi. There's a lot to cover here, so let's dive right in to the device that feels like it's the nexus of this announcement, the Lumia 1520. Well, it wasn't always the 1520 - not to us anyway. We've been talking about the general idea of a phablet-sized Lumia for a while, and back in August, that started taking shape as a phone codenamed Bandit. Before the month was out, we heard that Bandit might launch as the 1520, and our first look at fully-assembled hardware ...

    If that "Guru" is any indication, Nokia sure intends to have devices other than straight-up phones and tablets to present at tomorrow's Nokia World announcement. Now those accessories it brings to show off look like they could finally include the Nokia Treasure Tag, a Bluetooth-based tracking device we've been hearing about in rumors and leaks since the sunny days of July. With just hours to go before Nokia's event, we see the Treasure Tag make a reappearance, starring in a render alongside another of tomorrow's expected guests, the Lumia 1520. While there have been Treasure Tag leaked ...

    Those of you waiting for a phablet on the Windows Phone platform may be in store for more than just any phablet. We've heard about the Nokia Lumia 1520, and we do know that the company is planning to announce this phone on Tuesday at their Nokia World event. But if this thing were just big, it probably wouldn't mean as much as it does now that we've got some specs to match its size. The device just got leaked in a Chinese online store, and this is definitely going to be a monster. It's apparently bringing a 6-inch 1080p display, which in the chassis of a Lumia is already far from big. Then ...

    Google may be keeping us guessing about product launch dates, but Nokia's been much easier to read: the company has a big event scheduled for next Tuesday, when we're almost certainly going to see the introduction of a number of new models, including the 1520 phablet. With just days to go before that event, some late-stage hardware specs have leaked, preparing us for just what to expect on October 22. Not much of this is too unexpected, but @evleaks asserts that we'll see the phone launch with a Snapdragon 800, 20MP PureView camera, six-inch 1080p display, and 2GB of RAM. Wireless charging ...

    In just barely over one week, Nokia World is set to kick off in Abu Dhabi, bringing us news of what's rumored to be half-a-dozen-some new devices. We've had plenty of opportunities to guess what will be present, and the one real sure thing – the one model no one seems to doubt will actually make an appearance – feels like the Lumia 1520 phablet. Apparently we're not the only ones anticipating its launch, as we get to see in this leak of some 1520 cases. This find is only really tempered by the use of a 1520 stand-in (with the very same screenshot we've been seeing in renders for a ...

    For a smartphone that's still weeks away from being launched, we sure have had plenty of opportunities to check out Nokia's Lumia 1520. So far, those have included both leaked renders, as well as pictures of the hardware in the flesh, and between those sources, they been revealing the handset in a number of color options. Early on, we got to look at a red 1520 running some in-development software, and now that model returns our way, this time showing up in a new render. Notably, this image is of significantly higher quality than the yellow 1520 render that arrived last month, and looks ...

    It all started so simply; we'd seen smartphone after smartphone arrive with displays in the three or four-inch ranges, and larger tablets were clearly a different breed of device entirely. But then that middle ground, previously a no-phone's-land, started to see some activity. Maybe the first model to really get people talking about this form factor was the 5.3-inch first Galaxy Note, but since then we've seen dozens more arrive. Those haven't all been like the Note, which might be best described as a large phone, but have also come as models in the six-inch realm that felt more like small ...

We then talk about the leaked displays of the HTC Butterfly 2, and what to expect from this device. Sony is next as we've got some press renders that point to a smaller, but still powerful, Xperia Z1f. Google follows the news as we've got the company selling apps on vending machines in Japan. We end today's show talking about Android 4.3, and when we expect it to reach your device. All this and more after the break. Stories: - Nokia tablet ...

    September is just about to leave us behind for October, which means that Nokia's October 22 event is finally in sight. While there's bound to be some lower-end Asha business, we're also expecting to finally see Nokia launch some much more prominent devices, including the Lumia 1520 phablet and maybe even that 2520 tablet. Over the weekend, we had the opportunity to check out just such a Nokia tablet in some FCC paperwork, and today we're in the same boat with the 1520, as its own documentation gets published by the agency. We're looking at two distinct hardware versions here, as the ...

    The mobile space is full of profound juxtapositions this week as Apple can't make enough iPhones to meet demand, while BlackBerry can't keep its head above water long enough to sell existing stock. Meanwhile, Microsoft announces its second round of Surface products, while soon to be-acquired hardware maker Nokia (allegedly) prepares its own Windows tablet - and the horrible marriage of smartphone maker HTC and audio baron Beats finally, mercifully, dissolves. That's the big news for the week ending September 27, 2013, and all of it -plus iOS 7 literally making people sick- awaits you in ...

    Nokia's been doing its part in drumming up interest for its October 22 Nokia World "Innovation Reinvented" event in Abu Dhabi, and we've had a few stabs at guessing just what sort of hardware might make an appearance. The obvious contender has been the 6-inch Lumia 1520 phablet, but there are some other options that could very well decide to show up, too. As we wait to see if Nokia feels like dropping any hints, a new rumor is out this morning claiming that Nokia will introduce at least six new models. Yeah, but how many of those are going to be Ashas? This source claims that at a minimum ...

    That "Lumia 1820" may just be a pipe dream for now, but Nokia's got some other hardware that not only seems very much real, but looks nearly ready to launch. Last week, we saw the company start sending out save-the-dates for an October 22 event, where we'd presumably be hearing it announce such hardware. We've still got a month to go, but now Nokia's talking a little more about what it's got planned, sharing news of Nokia World in Abu Dhabi. The new teaser images, above and below, move from the barren sand dunes of last week's installment to the sunny shores of the Persian Gulf. The ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about our iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C first impressions after our review has begun. Then we talk about Microsoft's idea to build phablets using Windows RT. We later talk more phablets, but this time because of the Nokia Lumia 1520. We then move the spotlight to Sony and the sad news that you can't unlock the bootloader on this device, or you can't yet at least. We end today's show talking about the Oppo N1 possibly becoming the first CynanogenMod phone in the market. All this and more after the break. Stories: - iPhone 5S unboxing (Video) - iPhone 5C ...

    It's iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s launch day, and we can't think of a better way to commemorate the event than with a Pocketnow Weekly podcast. Actually, yes we can: it would be great to take a look back at Apple's pre-iPhone days with the spectacular failure that was the Motorola "iTunes phone" of 2005 - fortunately, we already took care of that yesterday. So we'll discuss the MOTOROKR E1 a little bit on today's Weekly, before delving in to the fresh new take on mobile software that Apple's iOS 7 represents. Then we'll revert back to twiddling our thumbs waiting for the UPS guy - but we'll ...

    There was initially, according to rumors, supposed to be a late-September event where Nokia was supposed to show off its upcoming Lumia 1520 phablet. Then reports started landing from all over that said event might have been postponed -- to October 22 -- which turned out to be a date on which Nokia is indeed planning something. Now, according to a recent report, the Lumia 1520 will be landing on AT&T's line-up on a certain Friday, November 8. Unnamed sources also claim knowledge of the color options (red, black, yellow, and white), as well as the price tag. An unlocked Lumia 1520 might ...

    Update: It just came to our attention that October 22 translates to 1022. Could this be a Lumia 1022? ...and, if yes, what would it be? The Lumia 1520? A carrier flavor of the 1020? Speculate on in the comments! Just as we heard more and more rumors concerning a possible delay in Nokia's Lumia 1520 announcement, the recently Microsoft-acquired Finnish phone maker has just posted a teaser on its Twitter which falls nicely in place with all the rumors and reports we've been hearing recently. We're pretty much sure it's about the Lumia 1520 phablet -- even more that a rumor was pointing ...

    The Nokia Lumia 1520 will, if everything goes according to leaks, be the first Windows Phone-powered phablet, a device with a rather large screen that we've seen leaked, rumored, mentioned, etc. a lot in the past couple of weeks. Rumor had it that Nokia was supposed to launch this phone at a late-September New York event but on Sunday we've heard the first report claiming the event was delayed. Now Reuters is chiming in on the matter, citing its own, anonymous sources close to the matter; according to said sources, the event has been postponed in light of the new developments that had ...

    Nokia's rumored launch plans for the Lumia 1520 found themselves getting a bit of a shake-up recently, with the idea of a September 26 announcement apparently ditched in favor of an October 20 event, instead. That delay doesn't sound like good news for anyone eagerly awaiting to see what a Windows Phone phablet will be like, but the big issue's not going to be when Nokia goes public with the 1520, but when those Lumia fans will actually be able to get their hands on the phone. According to the latest rumors, AT&T in the States may begin Lumia 1520 sales on Friday, November 8. There's ...

    Yesterday we've seen an alleged picture of the back of a white Nokia-made Windows Phone, believed to be either the Lumia 1520, or a special model for Verizon based off of the upcoming phablet from Finland. Today, a couple of other shots of the giant phone surface, but not before a bit of info concerning its alleged unveiling: apparently, we're no longer looking at September 26, but next month, with October 20 being a strong candidate. The report claims the announcement was pushed back; that, or the September 26 bit wasn't accurate in the first place. As far as the other pictures are ...

    The rumored Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, which Nokia really doesn't want to call a phablet, has been rumored and leaked all over the place in the past couple of weeks. Rumor has it that we'll see it at the September 26 New York event, with a rather large battery. While we've previously seen it in a leaked render with its yellow coat on, today's leak shows a white version. Of note here is that this particular white unit sports Verizon's branding on the back. Another thing to note is that the 20MP and PureView branding are called on out the back but this might either be a carrier-specific ...
