jbpianist28, 28 Oct 2013I think he means its restricted, but it is not, apple is thoughWell! Windows Phone is not limited buy not restricted like Apple. So yes, it's not restricted but it's not free like Android.
PL-GM, 28 Oct 2013I stand corrected based on the link you provided. I base my assertion based on my actual exper... moreYou are confusing things here. The reason why Windows Phone 7.x didn't get Windows Phone 8 is because of the difference in Kernels. Windows Phone 7.x is written on NT kernel while Windows Phone 8 is on a different kernel that enables support of a processor more than a single core. This is why none of the phones are upgraded to Windows Phone 8.
As far as Windows Phone 9, I don't know at which kernel it will be on but the chances are the same as Windows Phone 8. If not, then Microsoft will provide an update as promised so that all the Windows Phone 8 will be updated to Windows Phone 9 as the current Windows Phone 8 are on GDR3 while they will be updating to Windows Phone 8.1 shortly.
Things from Windows Phone 8 are pretty much changed.
when u develop such a nice cellphone...
why u do not upgrade secondary camera upto 5-8MP

However, lets not forget the that the excuse given previously was inadequate or incompatible hardware. Now who defines the hardware, even more so with the upcoming purchase of Nokia by MS? MS, of course, and a bitter personal experience with MS has shown they are quite capable of deliberately building in obsolescence to their phones to get oput of providing updates in SW. So we will see what actually transpires. I hope my cynacism is wrong but their track record is not good and I would want more than this article before buying a WP8 device given their previous track record quite honestly.

All wp8 devices have already recieved 3rd major update as GDR3..so plz stop spreading rumours....
For those who think Samsung et al are bad for updates, you can look forward to no major updates for this device ever. MS have a long track record of it. No device running WM5 got an update to 6, no updates from 6 to even 6.5, let alone WP7, and none from 7.x to 8. So should MS bring devices with say 9.x next year, which is quite likely, and you have purchased this phone on a 2 year contract you can look forward to a year of playing catch up. Just great for a flagship phone

harin, 28 Oct 2013it is good to see & use but it is so costly for a comman man like me Well! It's costly for many of us but considering how much engineering is being used under the development of this beautiful product including the powerful internals. The mind behind ClearBlack display, PureView technology and Nokia's many many tech. It's worth each and every penny.
bull, 28 Oct 2013No it does not have all the specs. It misses out HDMI / TV out port along with USB detection ... moreSo you mean you are trying to find a perfect phone? There is no perfect phone out there. This is according to me is the perfect phone to date. Even though, this is a phone -_-
I am in love .. I have had my S II for more than 2 years now .. and this Lumia 1520 is the only phone in the market that really moved my senses .. it has everything that worth upgrading my phone:
- Microsoft OS (vs Android, something different)
- Larger Screen
- Higher Res ,, and much higher ppi
- Better Camera (Miles better)
- Magnificent build quality ,, I love the red color ,, sexxxy
- It's not Apple
Can't wait ....
No it does not have all the specs.
It misses out HDMI / TV out port along with USB detection port via cable as in Nokia E-7
This phablet is totally awesome!!!..
I will get it since it arrive at my country..
Snapdragon800 + 20 MP =good job NOKIA
no prejudice more to W8phone ^_^
Certainly does look nice and good spec,,looking nice is part of the package for me as well.
Very nice smartphone, it would totally replace my need for a computer. Will seriously invest with this one. Hopefully it will fare better than HTC One Max in battery tests. GSMArena kindly review this great device. Nokia, release this very soon here in SG. Thanks
