New Nokia devices and iPads today — where to get more info on all the competition

While we’re waiting for Google to officially announce the Nexus 5 (we know they’re getting close), you may have forgotten that some of the competition has some exciting stuff to show off today. It’s not a bad idea to get knowledgeable about what they’ve got going on, so let’s take a really quick look.

Nokia Phones, Phablets, and Tablets, oh my!

Nokia already did that with several new phones and tablets to bless the world with. Starting with the Nokia Lumia 1520, this phone stretches the limit with a 6-inch 1080p HD display, and also sports a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 20 megapixel PureView camera, a 3,400 mAh battery and more.


The Nokia Lumia 1320 was also announced, and while this device also has a 6-inch display it’s be aimed at the budget market. A dual-core processor, a 5 megapixel camera sensor and 720p HD resolution make sure of that.

Finally, Nokia has announced their first ever Windows tablet. Dubbed the Nokia Lumia 2520, you’ll be getting a slate with a 10-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 6.7 megapixel camera, 2 megapixel front camera, 4G LTE and more.


The Lumia 2520 will run Windows RT 8.1 out of the box. It’ll cost $500, and you can add more to that price tag if you opt for a keyboard cover that adds another 5 hours of battery life. You can find out even more about these juicy devices and more Windows news over at WinSource.

New Apple iPads and Mac OSX Maverick

Apple’s rumored to be launching two new iPads today — an updated retina-enabled Mini, and a full-sized iPad that will share design characteristics similar to the Mini (meaning they’ve made it smaller and lighter overall). We’re also expecting the full-sized iPad to get Apple’s A7 processor, and there’s a chance we could be seeing a fingerprint scanner on this one.


For you Mac fans, there’s a decent chance Apple could also be announcing release details for Mac OSX Maverick, the latest system update for the operating system. iSource already has the details about that and everything else they expect to see come out of today’s 1PM Eastern event, so be sure to head over there to see what the big fuss will be about.

Who’s going to follow along?

Let us know if you’ll be breaking out of the Android bubble for a bit to catch up on news from the rest of the tech circle today. If not, feel free to let us know why (we think we know why, but we just want to be sure) in the comments below!

    Microsoft and Apple are doing their announcements.. Google, give us some love!

    • picaso86

      Google you are slacking!

    • Kevin

      Soon enough. Let Apple and Microsoft drown each other out with same day events/releases. Google will come in at the right time for their (our) win.

      • bobfrea

        google should have made the KK announcement the SAME day as those competitors!

        • Crimsonshadow774

          I disagree. If they announced it the same day as their competitors, there would be less people paying attention to their announcement. Its better to let them try to scream over top of each other today and Google unveil the Nexus 5 when people start to shut up and can give them their full attention.

    • ari_free

      Google is too busy making apps for them

  • James Kennelly

    Show me the Nexus!

  • Megatron_Don

    just read a bgr article that the ipad mini will have a windows surface like keyboard/cover. all fanboys will act as if apple did it first. lol it was a smart idea by windows. kudos to them.

  • supremekizzle

    I’d buy the Nokia tablet if it could dual boot android.

    • guitarist5122

      I’d buy it even without android if the price want so high.

    • No_Nickname90

      Use Bluestacks (kinda, decent Android 2.3 emulator) until the Dual Boot becomes possible. I’m sure devs will make it possible.

      They make anything possible.

  • El hombré de gordo

    Yea Yea thinner lighter iPads, nothing new. I’m glad to see Nokia entering the tablet and phablet market. :)

    • Cesar Ortiz

      y u so fat hombre gordo?

    • moises1204

    • androidscales

      windows table is a joke ipad sale volume dwarfs windows …but keep on denial

  • Joshua

    I’m an android fanboy through and through. But nokia is starting to step up there offerings. I bought my son the 520 and after messing with it came to the realization that windows phone is actually a nice os. That 1520 is going to be a beast. My next upgrade will still be a note 3……but for the windows fans this is an awesome phone.

    • Matthew Merrick

      I would consider a windows phone iff Google Apps existed for the platform. Then again maybe Google’s doing that on purpose. :P

    • ari_free

      Who wants to use Internet Explorer? ugh…driving the web backwards

  • TechGuy22

    it 599 on ATT ill pass.

    • phinn

      actually it said $629 :P

  • androidscales

    windows phone 2% market share pfft no one cares for that pos

  • NinoBr0wn

    I always pay attention to all things technology, as I respect their perspectives and placement in the industry, but I would never actually buy anything running iOS, and Windows Phone is just…like you said, I’m waiting for the Nexus 5.

    • No_Nickname90

      The idea of the Nokia Windows tablet doesn’t really get my attention. I think the Surface series already owns that department.

      • NinoBr0wn

        Well since Microsoft owns Nokia now, and Nokia has always been known for their great hardware, I don’t think it’s a bad idea to at least see how they handle the tablet market initially, even though it’s only running Windows.

  • Matthew Rhodes

    I’m sorry I thought I was on Phandroid.. guess Apple and Microsoft merged?

    • Sharky

      I like to hear what Apple announce without all fanboy vomit that comes along with them on most tech blogs..

      • ari_free

        You mean, you want to hear tech news from Android fanboys instead of Apple fanboys :)

  • phinn

    Once again very impressive hardware from Apple. Now if only it ran KitKat.

    Wait does KitKat actually exist? I’m beginning to doubt it anymore with all this waiting.

    • No_Nickname90

      I like reading comments like this. It shows there is hope in the world.

  • toomuchgame441

    I wish Google wild shut the game down and release a phablet

    • No_Nickname90

      The Nexus 5 was supposed to be a 5 inch device, right? Isn’t that a phablet? Or did the size get increased?

      • lolwut

        Technically you’re right; 5″ was supposed to be the phablet minimum. I’m kinda thinking de-facto it’s 5.5″ now. Surprisingly that’s a huge difference… Look at an S4 vs a Note II/III

        • Devon Warren

          Well technically it’s 4.95 so it doesn’t quite make it ;) but yeah i would say 5.4 and above now.

        • No_Nickname90

          That’s what I was thinking too. It seemed like a phablet’s screen size had to be over 5 inches and not classified 5 inches because it’s godly close to the size.

      • toomuchgame441

        Nah I wouldnt consider it a phablet, screen size with the on screen nav buttons will make it seem a lot smaller

        • No_Nickname90

          You see, I don’t like thinking like that. If the screen is a certain size, then it is, regardless of how much you are able to use, stock-wise. Get what I’m doing? Some people use PIE controls giving them access to all the screen. =.P

          • toomuchgame441

            I get what u mean, I just need to see some comparison to know where it really stands. Mainly against the HTC One.

  • toomuchgame441

    But I’m definitely looking ATT he Lumia Tab to replace my iPad

  • Crickerman

    So much lost potential with Nokia…. Great hardware on the wrong OS…

    • Ro Tep

      Let’s wIt Cyanigen Mod releasing one for the Nokia phones. That will be really nice

  • Biancoceleste

    If there was a 5″ version of the Nokia 1520 I’d get it instantly.

  • alfonzso

    For me, it’s comes down to: What can I do?

    Let’s face it! Nokia, Apple, Samsung, HTC, LG…..they all make fabulous hardware and I wouldn’t mind owning devices from any of those companies. I’ve owned two Nokia Lumia and the iPhone 5S so far this year.

    Why do I go back to my Android? Because I can do the most with it. Whether it’s access to the file system, ability to customize the skin, upload/download files without any restrictions, etc. It can only be done on Android mobile devices.

  • steveb944

    I thought Windows phones didn’t need big processors and ram due to their ‘fluid’ aka basic OS? What a waste of great hardware.

  • Daniel

    Windows Phone looks like a major clusterfuck on that 6″ Nokia, good luck with that.
