Despite unveiling around a dozen new gadgets this past summer, from high-end Lumia smartphones to modest Asha handhelds and to even more basic feature phones, Nokia is going into the fall with big plans and plenty of aces up its sleeve.
The Lumia 1020 is ready to spread like wildfire, a tablet, be it Windows 8 or Win RT-based, is also in the works, while the Lumia 1520, probably the highest anticipated device in Nokia’s history, has earlier today been confirmed as landing on September 26.
Of course, chances are the 6-inch Full HD phablet won’t go up for grabs on the exact same day as its formal unveiling, but who knows, maybe Nokia will get it out by mid-October. Which would be pretty great, not to mention it would allow the 1520 to go head-to-head against Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 and HTC’s yet to be made official One Max.
Meanwhile, those of you that can’t really afford to fork out $600 or $700 for a new top-of-the-line gizmo should also rejoice, as a dual-SIM Lumia 720 is headed towards Asia and Europe, I presume, in a matter of weeks.
Remember, the single-SIM 720 is not exactly a groundbreaking device, but it costs a measly $290 nowadays while packing mostly decent specs – 4.3-inch IPS screen, dual-core 1 GHz CPU, 6.1 MP rear camera, 2,000 mAh battery, Windows Phone 8 Amber.
