Nokia Lumia 1520 Phablet for the US: Let’s See What’s in Store

October 22, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Nokia will start sale of the much anticipated and extremely hyped Lumia 1520 in the US in a while.

As is the norm these days, phablets have tread on to much popular territory, and Nokia’s offering in that league is something worth noting.

But then many are concerned as to how big the Nokia phablet would be with regard to sales.

The fairly large 6-inch device has features that give it the capability to move on to big league, in fact.

Moreover, analysts have been weighing the device’s capacity to outdo Sony, LG, HTC and Samsung devices that are already in the market. Big is beautiful in many markets including Asia and parts of Europe, and that could be why many a handset maker had already ventured into making phablets that could satisfy potential owners.

Going by the specs list, the Nokia Lumia 1520 is awesome. With rivals ranging from Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to  Sony Xperia Z Ultra and more, Nokia would indeed have a tough tussle ahead.

But then the first 1080p smartphone running Windows Phone device needn’t be written off too easily. In fact, you can’t.

The NokiaWorld event getting underway today in Abdu Dhabi will showcase the device, which comes with a 6-incher display. What’s more, a 20MP rear camera and a 3390mAh battery add to the charm.

Besides the Full HD display, other noteworthy features include a powerful solid quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor.

On the storage front would be close to 2GB of RAM. The Windows Phone 8 GDR 3 update giving it some extra muscle, the device would also sport Nokia Glance Background.

What we like most about the Nokia Lumia  1520 is the way it has been getting ready to take on the other Android majors.  With the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Sony Xperia Z Ultra and HTC One Max having carved a niche of their won in the US terrain already, we need to see how the non Android device stands up against the Androids.

We have a feeling that this Windows Phone 8 driven Lumia 1520 could be seen by customers as a perfect alternative.

So when it comes to the US  in a a while, we need to expect good customer support for the Nokia phablet.  We need to wait to know what all promotional stuff the company would be lining up for the device in the run up to the big sale.

Stay tuned.
