Report: Nokia delays Lumia 1520 following Microsoft acquisition According to multiple sources, Nokia has delayed the launch of the Lumia 1520 'phablet' following Microsoft's purchase of their handset division.
The phone maker had been expected to unveil the device this month, possibly alongside a Windows RT tablet.

Now, the launch event has been pushed back until at least October, say the sources. Both companies will still operate separately, so it is unclear what has caused the delay.

The Lumia 1520, from what we know via leaks, features a massive 6-inch screen with 1080p resolution, is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB RAM.

On the back, a 21MP PureView camera will "take a dual shot consisting of a 16MP picture and a 5MP one for playing around with and sharing." 32GB internal storage is standard but there is also a microSD slot.

Additionally, the device will launch with the Windows Phone 8 GDR3 update and a 3400mAh battery for extended battery life.

The 1020 is similar..........this one SHOULD have increased RAM to 4GB and maintained the megapixels for the camera. What a step backwards...sheesh!...........expected!
