Nokia has launched a new promo video for its affordable Lumia 1320 phablet to help build some hype ahead of its launch. Sadly, the phone won’t make it for the Christmas holiday season, but it will become available early next year.
The video is less than a minute long and shows the Lumia 1320 in cool 360-degree shots highlighting some of the main software features of Windows Phone 8. It also shows the different color options for the phablet – black, yellow, orange and white.
Check it out below.
While waiting for the phone to become available, you can read our Lumia 1320 hands-on to learn more on the first impressions the phablet makes.
Nokia put two Asha 50x phones on sale – the 502 Dual SIM and the 503. The two are based on the Asha 501 design, but add a transparent outer layer on the back (while being every bit as colorful underneath).
The Nokia Asha 502 Dual SIM improves the phone's photography skills by bumping the camera to 5MP and adding an LED flash. The video recording is still at the abysmal QVGA@15fps, though.
As the name suggests, it comes only in dual-SIM. Unlike the 501, this model has only 2G connectivity, but Wi-Fi is still available and so is WhatsApp. Note that the Asha 502 has a slightly smaller battery.
The Nokia Asha 503 comes in single- and dual-SIM versions. It also brings back the 3.5G connectivity from the 501, while keeping the improved camera. The battery is back to the original 1,200mAh capacity too.
Both the Asha 502 and the 503 have 3" QVGA screens (240 x 320) protected by Gorilla Glass 2, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, microSD card slots. They also feature social networking integration (Facebook, Twitter, Sina Weibo, LINE, WeChat) and Nokia's data compressing Xpress Browser.
The Nokia Asha 502 Dual SIM and Asha 503 are available right now in select IMEA (India, Middle East and Africa) and Asia Pacific regions.
The Nokia Lumia 520 is by far the best-selling WP8 smartphone, helping the platform to some remarkable growth over the past few months. This means it's only natural for Nokia to bring up a successor sooner rather than later. That would be the Lumia 525, which brings more RAM, which would expand the app compatibility of what was an already well working package. As you know some of the apps in the Windows Phone Store are incompatible with 512MB RAM smartphones.
The Nokia Lumia 525 packs double the RAM at 1 GB and comes with Windows Phone 8 with the Lumia Black update out of box. The rest of the specs are similar to the Lumia 520 - a 1,430 mAh battery, Nokia's Here Maps, Drive and Transit, 8 gigs of storage (expandable via microSD card), 5 MP camera (without a flash) and a dual-core 1 GHz Snapdragon S4.
Nokia hasn't provided specifics on availability but we're guessing soon and in time for the holiday season. The price is also a mystery but we're guessing it won't be much higher than the Lumia 520 (currently just below the 130 mark).
We also expect the Lumia 525 to be available in China, as per previous rumors. We'll update you when we hear more.
Nokia Lumia 1020 advert presentations you don’t want martial arts to get the most effective photograph
Both photography and martial arts take years of training to master. But what if you could combine the study of both into one? A humorous new ad from Nokia UAE shows that you too can sign up to study Taekfoto with master Rez-Tu-Lo.
As you can imagine from a discipline that combines taking photos and martial arts, most of the 250 lessons revolve around getting through a crowd of people to get close enough for that perfect shot.
Or you could use Nokia Lumia 1020’s lossless digital zoom and save yourself the AED 7,000 / $1,900 that the Taekfoto lessons cost. Training with master Rez-Tu-Los isn’t cheap.
