Nokia introduced the Lumia 520 and Lumia 720 at the 2013 MWC, both new mid-range Windows Phone 8 handsets from the carrier. The 720 has a 4.3-inch WVGA display, runs a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, and has 512 MB of RAM. That makes it nearly identical to the 520 in terms of its hardware specs, though with a slightly larger screen than the 520's four-inch display.

    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 ...

    Yesterday we found out that Nokia had won itself an injunction against the continued use of the high-dynamic-range microphone components it had contracted from STMicroelectronics in the HTC One. At the time, all we knew was that it appeared that STMicroelectronics had overstepped its authority in selling these parts to HTC for use in the One. Now we're starting to get some more details into just what happened. Apparently, STMicroelectronics has a twelve-month exclusive contract with Nokia for the part in question, one that was first used in the Lumia 720 – so the microphones in the Lumia ...

    Oh no! Just how many variations on the same design can the market take? I guess the fair answer to that is different from person to person and there's always the good old saying according to which you shouldn't fix something that is not broken (or, in this case, that still sells). Apple's iPhones look fairly the same; of course there are differences from one major iteration to the other (3, 4, 5) but the design principle is alike. Before Samsung launched its Galaxy S 4 I was praying for a new design because the current pebble-like aspect has been used and abused like a good old... Galaxy S ...

    Mobile World Congress 2013 was, as promised, a boatload of fun and a bucket of hot tech-geek action. While we didn't see everything we wanted to, we were treated to an avalanche of smartphones and tablets running everything from Android to Windows Phone to Sailfish to FirefoxOS. We got a gander at some really impressive form factors too, at sizes ranging from the conventional to the fantastic. If you were off the internet for the duration of last week, or if you simply couldn't deal with the cavalcade of content gushing forth from the tech-news spigot, that's okay. We understand. And we've ...

    Technically, the Mobile World Congress may finish-up tomorrow, but with all the big smartphone and tablet events over, we're calling it a wrap. We've had a great time the past several days bringing you news of all the new hardware and software companies came to the event to promote, and as we now begin to recuperate and get back to business as usual, we wanted to take a look back on MWC 2013 and everything it brought us. The week leading up to the MWC was filled with rumors, as we should expect, and while some played out, others fell flat on their faces. LG really got things started early, ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the Nokia Lumia 520 and 720 as they've not got both a retail price and a release date. Then we talk about Windows Phone 8, and how it seems that history won't repeat itself when it comes to software updates. Then it's some MWC oddities as we visit the NWC Medias W dual-screen Android smartphone. Samsung's new wallet service is next, even though it looks exactly like Apple's passbook. We end today talking about the Galaxy S IV and the processor selection we'll get when released. All this and more after the break. Stories: - MWC 2013 News and ...

    We think it's pretty fair to say that MWC 2013 was one part IFA and one part CES: a few stark disappointments peppered among some really amazing stuff. We've seen technology this week ranging from the incredible to the absurd - from the third iteration of ASUS's wild Padfone concept to the improbable debut of a Kyocera Echo lookalike. The big guys have come out to play, too, but they're a little shy this time around: neither Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0 nor Nokia's midrange Lumias blew the roof off the joint. Even a few has-beens came out to confuse us with their wares, some of which will be ...

    When Nokia announced its new, more affordable Windows Phone 8 models earlier this week, the Lumia 520 and Lumia 720, it gave us some initial pricing and retail launch info. Now we're getting new details from retailers, helping us fill in the picture of just how these handsets will go up for sale. Nokia already said that both phones would initially ship sometime in March, but for the 520, at least, specified that it would first go up for sale only in Southeast Asia. Supposedly, the phone would "quickly start to reach more markets" globally, but just where, and when. Well, for the UK, Clove ...

    After closely inspecting the Lumia 720, the highest-end amongst the Windows Phones announced by Nokia today at MWC, we're stacking it up against the now already established and respectable Lumia 920. We're looking at specs, build quality and features as well as software. Of course, the Lumia 920 is a PureView device -- the one with the Optical Image Stabilization capability as its main feature -- and its internals are better than the ones used in the Lumia 720, however, the latter has an expandable memory via the microSD slot. Check out all of that and more in the video below!

    Nokia announced a handful of devices this morning out of which two were Windows Phones, the highest-end amongst them being the Lumia 720. The Finnish phone maker maintained the general design guidelines we're already familiar with from previous Lumia phones, however, tweaking them further with subtle changes. The Lumia 720 packs a 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB internal storage (expandable up to 64 GB), 4.3-inch super-sensitive touch display with ClearBlack technology, 6.7-megapixel sensor with Carl Zeiss optics, and an F1.9 aperture, as well as a 1.3-megapixel webcam.

    We already got a nice look at the Nokia Lumia 720 and 520 thanks to the press shots that leaked yesterday, and today we can follow that up with a couple new pictures of the pair. That's the Lumia 720 up above, apparently with a Carl Zeiss lens for its main camera, and the Lumia 520 below. There's nothing particularly new to see in this set, besides giving us a better glimpse at all the color options that will be available for each, and seeing the rears of each model from a slightly different angle. Odds are good that we'll hear Nokia formally announce these two at its MWC press event on ...

    Of all the Nokia Lumia smartphones we're expecting to see at the Mobile World Congress, the 720 and 520 have been the most well-formed. While we have general rumors about other models like a PureView phone or a 920-ish model for Verizon, the 720 and 520 have received pretty comprehensive spec lists, and already appeared in regulatory filings. Today we get our first look at these two models, thanks to a pair of leaked pics. That's the Lumia 520 up above, and the Lumia 720 below. While these are unconfirmed leaks, this source has been quite reliable (most recently with HTC One images), so ...

    We're coming down to the wire on Nokia's MWC event, with just one week to go until we get to see what's new from the company. Our chance of seeing a tablet may be shot, but there are plenty of rumors about new smartphones that should keep us satisfied. Chances are, not everything we've heard about will make an appearance, but Nokia could still have a good number of new phones to show off. Just how many, though? According to the logs of one ad network serving Windows Phone apps, Nokia seems to have four new models in operation. Two of them are essentially locks: the Lumia 720 and Lumia 520, ...

    Yesterday, we got to check out some regulatory paperwork that seemed to reveal the presence of two upcoming Nokia Lumia smartphones, the 720 and 520. At the time, the only info we had heard about the specifics of these models is that they'd be Windows Phone 8 devices, and have hardware similar to the 710 and 510. Well, Windows Phone 8 isn't going to agree very well with the 510's meager 256MB of RAM, so clearly some changes would need to take place. Today, we get our first sense of just what those changes may be, with some rumored specs for both models. Supposedly, the Lumia 520 will get a ...

We end today's show talking about Samsung's possible new endeavor of launching the Galaxy S IV with Floating Gestures. All this and more after the break. Stories - ...
