FullHD screenshot of Windows Phone surfaces, is it the Bandit? - read the full textA screenshot has leaked online, which allegedly was taken from the rumored Nokia (for now) Bandit, or otherwise Lumia 1520. The screenshot sports the fine resolution of 1920 x 1080 - that's FullHD in layman's terms - and gives a glimpse of what the WP OS might look like when finally breaks the 720p...

Microsoft is just another NSA division. It's easy for them to spy on all your activities with Windows phone OS, just like Google spy through Android and Apple with iOS. And since this is not really a Nokia phablet, i am not interested in it or any phones/phablets from Micro$oft.

years ago, sony make phones, sony didn't really success. then they join with ericsson which are more popular that time.
after years, sony bought ericsson. now there's only the big brand of SONY. the so called sony-ericsson brand is dumped. so sony just riding ericsson train to success.
now microsoft will do the same to nokia. can anybody see this coming?

Microsoft continues it's crap support for customers that has been their legacy since they came out with the Windows Mobile platform with it's Amber update for the Lumia line (still waiting for the 820 update 3 weeks after update made available - WTF, no bandwidth for your servers to get out the update?)

I expect more of the same as Micro$haft takes over Nokia.

Looks alright, though a little cluttered. Wonder what it will look like when customised right.

Lol. It looks way uglier and as we all know it, Windows phone 8 OS GDR3 or whatever it be, it will be a crappy OS and not to forget, this isn't a Nokia device. It is a Microsoft tablet in just Nokia clothing. Definitely a no-worth tablet. I've no interest in whatever is related to Microsoft. It sucks.

Smartphones and dumb people make this place terrible.

Looks similar to a tablet running windows 8 pro! Perhaps windows 9 and microsoft phone os9 will look identical to encourage apps working on both!

I've already lost interest about this as this will no longer be a Nokia device.
