New Nokia Phones and Tablet Take Advantage of Windows 8.1 HD
|Richard Harris in Mobile Tech Thursday, October 24, 2013|
The new HD display offers a new opportunity to super size the Windows phone start screen with room for three large or six small live tiles across. The phone comes with a 20MP PureView camera offering optical image stabilization, oversampling technology to capture more details, and enhanced zoom. Four built-in microphones provide directional stereo recording capability and clear, distortion-free sound for HD videos. The Lumia 1520 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor.
Nokia also unveiled the Lumia 1320, a lower-cost phone without the HD that features a 6-inch 720p screen, 5MP camera, and dual-core processor. It also has 8GB of internal storage (expandable to 64GB).
Nokia also debuted the new 10.1-inch Lumia 2520 Windows tablet. The tablet becomes surface like with the Nokia Power Keyboard, an available wrap-around cover with a built-in keyboard and track pad. The cover also offers five extra hours of battery life and two USB ports.
The tablet’s 10.1-inch 1080p display features Corning Gorilla Glass 2 with almost 180 degree viewing angles allowing a person right next to you to see your screen without getting in your face. The display on the Lumia 2520 also provides a peak brightness of 650 nits with reflectance of less than 6% for the best outdoor reading experience.
On the inside, the Lumia 2520 comes powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset with built in high-speed LTE connectivity. The Lumia 2520 has a 6.7 megapixel rear camera with 1.9 aperture, providing great low light images and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera. Nokia is including ZEISS optics in the Lumia 2520 and special Nokia imaging algorithms to extend the camera experience seen on its phones into their tablet.
While Apple might still be the top dog for app developers, it’s undeniable that Android and Windows phones offer much more bling.
