Lumia 1520: The powerhouse phablet


Android phones and iPhones might be getting rave reviews at the moment but I think the Windows Phone is a great platform in its own right. What happens when you combine Microsoft’s mobile OS to an enormous 6-inch phablet? You know its gonna be massive.

All hail the powerhouse phablet…the Nokia Lumia 1520 is the very first Windows Phone with a Full High Definition (HD) screen. The Lumia 1520 does fit into a very defined niche, however phablets are aimed precisely at those who are willing to compromise slightly on portability and screen size so as not to have to buy or carry both a phone and a tablet. Priced at N110, 000, the Lumia 1520, is the first 6” smartphone running on Windows platform, featuring 20 mega pixel camera and the latest imaging innovations from Nokia to make high quality imaging even easier.

Now, this is an area that I am particularly interested in. The camera! The Lumia 1520 tells your story better on a large screen. Nokia Lumia 1520 brings your story better to life with Nokia Camera and Nokia Storyteller allowing people to relive their memories in more details on the 6” 1080p full HD screen.

It captures high quality images with the 20MP PureView camera that combines the latest camera innovations from the Lumia 1020, like enhanced sensor technology, optical image stabilisation, oversampling technology and great zooming capabilities.

You can now get best images with your preferred settings faster and more easily. Nokia Lumia 1520 now introduces the new Nokia Camera that integrates the most popular imaging modes, Pro, Smart, and video into one seamless picture taking experience.

Nokia Lumia 1520 makes people more productive with the Microsoft Office built in and the ease of use on the larger screen.  With the best from Nokia and the best from Microsoft including the Microsoft Office you can do what you want, when you want.

You can view and edit your Word, Excel and PowerPoint files on the move, while keeping the original formatting.

You can also make Lync video calls with an even better experience on a larger screen.

For the busy executive, you can back your documents up to the 7GB of free and secure cloud storage via SkyDrive and pick up where you left with any device. This is truly incredible. You can share  your experience and ideas easily and instantly with friends or colleagues by projecting your phone screen to any HTML5 enabled screen with Nokia Beamer.

You can also beam your phone’s screen to someone far away by sending them a link by email, SMS or via social media. Documents, maps, locations details, or even your camera viewfinder will be shown as you can see it, live and real.

With integrated wireless charging on Nokia Lumia 1520 and the new portable wireless charging plate DC-50 you can truly stay charged wirelessly while on the go.

So, what are you waiting for guys? Go out there and get yourself the new Lumia 1520.
