    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 ...

    As we spent the morning anticipating on the latest episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, Google's long-awaited Nexus 5 finally got itself announced today. It was a long slog; even earlier today, as the minutes turned to hours and all those "confirmations" started dissolving into the nothingness from whence they came, it was looking like yet another false alarm. But just as we were starting to retool for a November 1 release date, the Nexus 5 hit the Google Play Store. And when units finally start arriving at buyer doorsteps over the next few days, they'll come packing a feature that I ...

    It happens to the most of us: shoot that perfect picture, say goodbye to the moment, and when you revisit the image you just snapped, oh snap, it's out of focus. Nokia seems to have a solution ready with the Refocus feature we've been hearing about since Abu Dhabi. Sami Niemi, Nokia’s director of Capture & Relive software product management, explains: “Nokia Refocus captures different images over the entire focus range. What this means is that you don’t have to worry about getting your shot in focus before you take a photo. You just capture your image first and then play with ...

    On October 22 Nokia announced, among other things, the Lumia 1520, at the Abu Dhabi Nokia World 2013. It is the largest -- six-inch screen -- and most powerful Windows Phone to date, with its quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. It also packs 2GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage (expandable), and a 20MP PureView camera. The phone will be available on AT&T -- with some modifications to its wireless charging system and support -- and today's leak tries to anticipate the look of the color options on the carrier's line-up. Black, red, and white are the shades mentioned and the purported ...

    Some of you might have already noticed that a certain Nokia Camera application will be installed instead of the Nokia Pro Camera on your Lumia 1020 phones. The new app combines the Pro Camera and Smart Camera separate applications into a single one, and, also brings some improvements like the ability to choose quickly between three presets: Auto, Sports, and Night. The app can be downloaded from the Store for Nokia Lumia 1020 and Lumia 925 phones, and, will come pre-installed on the brand new Lumia 1520. With the roll-out of the Nokia Lumia Black update -- formerly known as Bittersweet ...

    I'm writing this editorial while sitting in a Boston-area Starbucks, which means two things: 1) yes, I'm one of those pretentious jerks who writes in public, and 2) I'm seated next to a wireless charging plate embedded in the tabletop. The hardware is unobtrusive, just a glossy disc about three inches across, mounted flush with the table. At first glance, it almost seems like a permanent coaster, a structural suggestion from management encouraging you to "put your drink here." Only on closer inspection does the Powermat branding become evident, with tiny text encouraging the curious to ...

    You'll be able to click this link to join the hangout! Topic Unfortunately we had to skip an episode last week due to some objective matters, but, nonetheless, we're back, and boy, do we have a lot to talk about. A lot of things have happened over the past couple of weeks, and, specifically, this week. The world is now richer with a couple of Apple iPads and Nokia Lumias, and we can't wait to hear your thoughts! However, the other big, and anticipated, bit of the week, the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat event did not happen. Disappointed? Have predictions? Let's talk about that too! Join ...

    Fun fact: flame wars, petty bickering, and troll hijinks aren't just confined to the online world; they find a ready home in corporate tactics as well. That's a reality we were reminded of this week, as Apple announced its new iPad family on the same day Nokia unveiled not just its first Windows-based tablet, but also the first-ever Windows Phone phablets, at its Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi. Predictably, the Apple news obliterated Nokia's announcement in the news cycle - but, the Pocketnow Weekly being a platform-agnostic, equal-opportunity podcast, we're gonna cover both new device ...
