Nokia Lumia 1520 hands-on

Nokia's new flagship Lumia 1520 is big news and a big phone. The company's first "phablet" Windows Phone, it marks the debut of official 1080p screen support in version 8.1 of Microsoft's platform, not to mention a further distillation of Nokia's investment into PureView camera technology down into the mass market. It's also the device that Nokia hopes will rival top-tier iPhone and Android handsets that, so far, it has struggled to compete with. Plenty of high expectations, then, but does the Lumia 1520 live up to them? Read on for our first impressions.

Most disappointing, perhaps, is missing out on the PureView camera technology.

That's the kicker - it will almost certainly be bringing on a new edition of Windows, but with the tablet-aimed RT attached to the end.

Nokia six product gush tipped for Oct 22: Sirius tablet, Lumia, dumbphones

Nokia will reveal six new products, including smartphones, entry-level devices, and its first Windows tablet at an October 22 event, insiders claim, a broad refresh of its line as it tries to claw back attention to devices rather than the Microsoft acquisition.
