Nokia unveils Nokia Lumia 1520, 1320 phablets and Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet


As per the schedule, Nokia has unveiled a new Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet as well as two extra-large smartphones (phablets) – Nokia Lumia 1520 and 1320 today in Abu Dhabi event and we expected it.

In the last major event of Nokia, before the completion of acquisition by Microsoft, along with the new hardware, Nokia also introduced an unique feature in Windows Phone handsets, which can change the focus of any objects of a photo after it’s taken.

Microsoft has signed the agreement to buy Nokia for approximately $7.4 billion, which will be completed in early 2014. The release of these new large smartphones and a Windows RT tablet will assist Microsoft to wage war against the competitors – Apple and Google. Although Windows Phone handsets share is increasing in European countries, the improvement is moving slowly towards the market capture.

Both the Nokia Lumia phablets has 6-inch displays, which allows an extra row of app tiles on home screen than small-display-based devices. Company also noted that the extra space would help the users to type via touch keyboard easily and it aims to target the phones to business users with productivity apps. Moreover, Lumia 1520 high-end smartphone has 4 microphones for recordings.

The all new Beamer app to stream phone contents to a web browser on another screen via Nokia’s own servers. Refocus app lets you to decide which part of the photo to be focused after taking the photo. This app is not just another editing app, but the device takes series of photos quickly with all possible focus lengths and the app will find it.

Price and availability:

Nokia Lumia 1520 is priced at $749 before any taxes or subsidies and will be available in this quarter in US, starting with AT&T, whereas the Nokia Lumia 1320 is priced at $339 before subsidies and it may not be available in US.

This is the first ever tablet produced by Nokia and the only Windows RT tablet other than Microsoft’s own Surface 2. Dell, Asus, Lenovo, Samsung and Acer all tried to bring their Windows RT tablets initially and later stopped producing RT based tablets and may be they don’t ave any plans too (as of now!).

Windows RT build to run on ARM chipsets to ultimately offer better battery life than full Windows 8 tablets running on x86 processors and the sad part is RT doesn’t support all the programs which can be seen in Windows 8 software. Lumia 2520 seems distinctive than Microsoft’s recently released Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablet – lighter, compact and with optional 4G SIM card support.

Price and availability:

The Nokia Lumia 2520 is priced at $499 (expected price) and it will be available in this quarter in US starting too with AT&T.
