New Devices Unveiled At Nokia World Event In Abu Dhabi – Nokia Lumia 1520, Lumia 2520, and Lumia 1320

This is personally, for me, one of the most anticipated events. As an avid Windows fan, I have been waiting for Nokia’s new devices to be unveiled and waiting for the right time to switch. But before that let me give you a heads up. Windows Phone fans, the wait is over. INSTAGRAM is official coming to Windows Phone! Yehey! I think this is the right time for me switch. I am ditching my iPhone and iPad for these new devices from Nokia this holiday season. Anyway, Nokia had an event yesterday at Abu Dhabi and unveiled three new products – Nokia Lumia 1520, Lumia 2520 and Lumia 1320.

NOKIA LUMIA 1520

This is Nokia’s first phablet. A 6-inch screen powered by a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor which also marks as the first Windows Phone device with this kind of chipset found on high end Android smartphones.

NOKIA LUMIA 2520

Another Nokia’s first. This is Nokia’s first tablet. We all know that Nokia never had a tablet before although there are plans in the past it never pushed through. Its running Windows 8 RT which is an OS optimized for tablets. Some apps that runs on your desktop or notebook (especially if you are still on Windows 7) won’t run here. Good to know that Windows 8 apps are fastly growing.
