No matter if you’re an Android aficionado, die-hard iOS fan or a dreamer and you continue to root for the underdogs (i.e. Windows Phone and BlackBerry), if you’re the least bit conscious about following the latest news you simply can’t escape the rumor bonanza surrounding the world’s first ever WP-based “phablet.”
Nokia has been reportedly prepping this mystery behemoth for at least nine months, so it could become available any day now. Especially with more and more sources, as diverse as they are trustworthy, confirming the existence of the device.
The latest such “source” has been in touch with the folks over at The Verge, telling them essentially the same things we’ve heard at least once before. That is a. the gadget will sport a large and comfortable 6-inch panel, b. the screen will boast a 1,080p (aka Full HD resolution), c. there will be a quad-core processor under the hood (of the Qualcomm Snapdragon family, though the model is unclear at this point), and d. the exterior will be made of polycarbonate.
Basically the only new thing is the phone’s codename – “Bandit” – , although you can imagine there’s no way Nokia will use that moniker as a final market name. Oh, yeah, and AT&T is tipped to be currently testing the Bandit. No idea if the carrier will get exclusivity over the device, but apparently the Lumia 925, which is currently available only on T-Mobile, should spread its wings towards other US networks soon enough.
