6" Nokia Lumia phablet front panel pictured

6We've heard rumors of a phablet in the works from Nokia for a while now. Back in May we even saw a (blurry) glimpse of what appeared to be a large-screened Nokia device, expected to see the light of day as the Lumia 1030. This latest leak which supposedly comes from a factory floor in China...

Another Lumia 920 that is blown up. WP OS is terrible, Lumia 920 users know what I'm talking about. I installed a battery meter because you need to swipe down the top portion of the screen every now and then to see it, so i installed one so it will be a tile on the screen and i found out it only updates the battery meter every 30 minutes.

however Nokia can still embrace both WP & Android, right ?
they can use own Nokia Maps in WP, while use Google Maps on Nokia Android.

Just like HTC, Samsung, LG, they go Android & WP, so I don't see why Nokia cant go both too.

A phablet sort of device needs a strong and diverse app ecosystem/ HD games etc. for rich user experience, something that the Windows platform will disappoint on. Do not see high demand for this product when it gets launched

thats the same reason, Why Nokia is concentrating on WP.

Fate of Tizen,Bada of samsung is the same as the fate of symbian,meego etc of Nokia

To be clear: heard of LAB RATS?

IF Nokia didnot want to compete other OEM with android
they cant outbeat other OEMS with symbian, meego or jolla or whatever

FYI, this is a smartage. symbian,jolla are zombieware now. see a live demo of those OS in your grandpa's hands

Nokia is holding 70% of WP marketshare
Other OEM cant outbeat Nokia in WP marketshare.

IF samsung could beat Nokia in WP marketshare, then YES Nokia too can challenge samsung in android marketshare.
else... NO

To them at the time, dual core probably was quite useless.

As a current Note 2 user, I would consider switching if the Nokia phone comes with a pressure sensitive pen (like the S-pen in Note2) and if the phone supports Miracast (like the AllShareCast in Note 2). I need to use the phone for presentation so being able to output in HDTV is important. At least need HDMI out if not Miracast. And functionalities like Mobizen in Android is also very handy. Of course 41 MP PureView camera is a big bonus.

that looks bigger than the xz ultra. or is it just the hand holding it that's relatively small?

Great to see a Nokia device that DOESN'T have massively thick bezels.

Now all they need to do is improve the appearance of WP8!
