Microsoft's planned acquisition of Nokia has been approved by the US Department of Justice and the FTC. With both regulatory agencies approving of the deal, Microsoft needs only the go-ahead from the European Union to make the deal official. Nokia shareholders have already voted in favor of selling its handset division for $7.2 billion dollars. The deal will see the company maintain its networking operations but sell smartphone facilities, patents, and workforce to Microsoft.
The Nokia Lumia 521 is the best-selling Windows Phone device thanks to its low price. Nokia has decided to once again target the low-end market with the release of the Lumia 525, a slightly more powerful version of its most popular phone.
Nokia has yet to release a quad-core, 1080p HD smartphone - until now. With the release of the Nokia Lumia 1520, Windows Phone finally has a device to take on the Android phablet sector.
The Nokia Lumia 1520 will cost $199 on a two-year agreement when it arrives at AT&T next week. Though we're still waiting on an official word from AT&T or Nokia, the Microsoft store already accepts pre-orders for the phone and lists a November 15 release date. The Lumia 1520 will be available in black, white, yellow, and red. Customers can also purchase the phone for $549 off-contract. The phone has a 6-inch 1080p HD display, a 2GB RAM, a 2.2 GHz quad-core processor, and a 20-megapixel PureView camera.
Nokia has already surpassed the 6-inch barrier with the Lumia 625, but the largest Nokia phone at the time had a low-quality display. Nokia today announced the Lumia 1520 and 1320 smartphones, both have which offer the HD displays that 6-inch smartphone deserves.
The Nokia Lumia 1520 will reportedly bring Nokia into the phone-meets-tablet territory when the Windows Phone 8 handset introduces a 6-inch, 1080p HD display. New reports suggest it will also have a 3,400 battery.
The long-rumored Nokia Lumia 1520 Windows Phone 8 handset with a 6-inch device is definitely real based on a new set of images and specs leaked to the media. Here are some photos of the first Nokia Lumia phablet.
Microsoft paid Nokia millions of dollars in "support" payments in the early days of the Finnish manufacturer's transition to Windows Phone, but Microsoft today announced it will pay EUR 5.44 billion (US $7.17 billion) to acquire Nokia's Devices & Services division.
Nokia took a big step forward with the release of the Lumia 1020, but did it move forward far enough for people who might have already purchased the Lumia 920 or 928? Here's a comparison to decide.
Before the release of the Nokia Lumia 625, the largest Nokia screen was a 4.5-inch display with WXGA resolution. A new leaked image reveals what may be the Nokia Lumia 1520, a Windows Phone 8 handset with a 6-inch, 1080p HD display.
