    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 ...

    If the rumors we've heard are true, we're only a couple weeks away from Nokia announcing the Lumia 1520, the first phablet-sized Windows Phone model to arrive. At least, that seems to be the best way to describe this behemoth with its six-inch display, but Nokia doesn't sound so sure. Apparently the company's very nervous about the word "phablet," or at least that's the impression some of its feedback surveys have been creating. Nokia's been asking users questions like "would your friend know what you were referring to if you talked to them about a phablet?" and "if a brand new larger ...

    There's one fewer Romanian on this week's podcast, and we're no longer hovering over a precarious microphone stand made of empty shoeboxes and trash cans in a European hotel room - but that doesn't mean this latest episode of the Pocketnow Weekly is lacking in charm. On the contrary, we've called in a silver-tongued devil from Honduras and a smooth-talking geocacher from middle America to provide two very different perspectives on some very high-visibility smartphones. That's right: it's Apple week. That special time of year where iOS makes its way to the top of our rundown and instigates ...

    Nokia's anticipated Lumia 1520 will be the biggest Windows Phone handset to date; there's little argument there. With a six-inch display, likely to take advantage of the upcoming WP8 support for 1080p resolutions in GDR3, this phablet stands to dwarf the rest of the platform's lineup. Besides just offering more screen space, big devices like this also have the luxury of there being that much more room for a jumbo-sized battery - just look at Samsung with its Galaxy Note series, moving up in each iteration from a 2500mAh, to 3100mAh, and now 3200mAh battery. As we wait for Nokia to formally ...

    There are a couple of Nokia Lumia rumors on the interwebs recently. Whether it's the Nokia Lumia 1520 or the Microsoft Lumia phone, depending on what you like to speculate on, since the acquisition, we're talking about a first Windows Phone 8 phablet. We've seen recently some alleged pictures of the phone and now, according to a recent report, it will be announced on September 26. Nokia (Microsoft now) has an event planned for that same day in New York but we'll have to wait and see whether we'll get the phablet or its long-rumored first Windows tablet. On a side-note, the Lumia 720 was ...

    We apologize for the late upload. We ran into lots of technical difficulties that delayed this video significantly. Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Microsoft's Surface 2 event, and some new rumors about the tablets to be announced. We then talk about Amazon and the sad confirmation that their rumors of a free phone are not going to happen.

We follow with the sad news that FCC Nexus 5 leaks were really of another device from LG. We end ...

    Leaks have been coming fast and furious for the Nokia Lumia 1520, expected to be released as the first full-blown Windows Phone 8 phablet. In just over a week, we've gone from our first glimpse of the hardware, to leaked screenshots, and even a press render. Today we get to see things stepped up a notch, with a whole load of new 1520 imagery leaking. This new look at the six-inch tablet already begins to answer a few questions. For instance, that render gave us our first look at the phone's rear, where we caught more than a whiff of Lumia 925 inspiration. We spotted five little dots up ...

    It's only been just over a week since we heard the name Lumia 1520, but the phablet, previously known by codename Bandit, has just been blowing up in leaks and rumors lately. We saw an early shot of what sure looked like it might be the hardware itself, and then got to check out a screen grab sourced from the phone, detailing how the Windows Phone home screen would look on new 1080p handsets. Today, the 1520 goodness continues, with the first press render of the phone leaking. We finally get to see the phablet from behind, and it sure reminds of the design used in the Lumia 925. Looking it ...

    Talk of a phablet-sized Nokia Lumia phone goes back years. For the longest time, it was more in the realm of wishful thinking, but over the past several months, as we've seen a new wave of Lumia hardware arrive, the idea that Nokia might finally be ready to release such a phone really started gaining traction. Sure, there were some early looks that seemed pretty fake, but more recently we've been seeing support for the idea of a phablet-sized Lumia 1520, under development as codename Bandit. We've already had a possible look at the hardware, and today get to check out a screenshot, ...

    The phablet Nokia is rumored to work on, previously referred to as the Bandit, has received a new model name as of yesterday: Nokia Lumia 1520. Today, we're allegedly looking at said phablet in a picture reportedly depicting the phone in real life. While we're not quite sure of the authenticity of this image, it does indeed show a large-screened Windows Phone with the Live Tiles ending two-thirds down (nothing a Windows Phone update couldn't fix though). Interestingly, there's an additional row if Live Tiles available, if you look at the top row. The Bandit, now the Lumia 1520, is expected ...

    Rumors are piling up concerning the future possible Nokia phablet, codenamed "Bandit". We first heard of this codename on August 19, and then more rumors and leaks tried to confirm the codename, and some hints towards a September New York event, where it will allegedly be announced. We could now ditch the "Bandit" codename as recent reports seem to refer to the upcoming phablet as the Nokia Lumia 1520. That's really everything we're hearing at the moment, but, if the Lumia 1020 is any indication (and if we overlook some 909 rumors back in the day), the Lumia 1520 might be the real name. ...
