The new Video Director Suite is exactly what my life needs, lol. Hopefully it comes to the Surface 2, seeing as how Microsoft will essentially own Nokia soon.

No one mentioned that 1520 contains 32GB on board + SDCARD expansion!
I'm sold!

Yeah wtf! That's really important and great news! Plus 2gb of ram this thing is great! Still less ram than a note 3, but if this costs less than a note 3 this is going to be a great seller and most likely my next phone!

Right before the new iPads? Might have had a better chance if they released them a month or so before

Not really... it's perfect timing since people are looking at the new ipads they can compare with the new Surface and new Lumia tablets.

They would have had better luck if people would have compared with the older model ipads

Any news on the price for the KB that comes with the 2520?

$150 for the Power Cover, it's kb+battery with 2 USB ports.

That makes it a total of $650, that's not cheap.
It looks really nice but I think I like the way the surface looks better, especially when you combine the tablet and keyboard.

It is but I expect to see it sold through some carrier with a data contract so the whole package could be $399 or something? Who knows?

*edit* After I posted this I then saw this page. http://www.nokia.com/us-en/phones/tablet/lumia2520/ Looks like the 2520 is going to be on AT&T and Verizon.

Only the basic free skydrive storage for someone purchasing a new windows phone? Come on Microsoft if they are purchasing your products at least give them a small bump for free.

Uhh, phone aside aren't Surface 2/Pro2 users getting 200GB free skydrive for a year?

Yeah but it would be a nice push for users that want big cloud storage. Samsung already does 48 extra GB on dropbox for two years on their big name phones.

Are they likely to announce any other phones at Nokia World, or is this it? I was really hoping for an average-sized phone on AT&T.

The Lumia 1520 would be a great birthday present for me. I wish I knew someone that won the lottery, then I'd get the 1520 and 2520 tablet.

Sexy. I'd really like that 2520, it's great looking... But if only it had Intel BayTrail/x86 it would be perfect. This is frustrating.

Have to leave something for the PC OEMs to do, heh. Lots of people are talking about the Lenovo and Dell devices.

The 2520 is brilliant. Just cant help thinking what would happen to it when Microsoft acquires Nokia

Exactly my thought. If the deal will go through, which is very probabile, the device will Bee DOA

Fritzly said,

Who knows? What if when the deal is final, sometime next year which could be March-April, they then have the Nokia design end up as a future Surface 3? Or they could limit the Lumia tablet to be sold via Carriers with a 4G/LTE contract and keep the Surface as is through retail only, even the future 4G/LTE version of the Surface 2 for example could be sold without a contract option while the Lumia could be.

I think they have some options going forward actually.

Fritzly said,

Why would it be DOA? It'll still be supported by the Nokia team, they'll just be under Microsoft's supervision at that point.

Because it would be the first and the last. Making two devices, very similar, still different therefore cannibalizing each other markets does not make sense. Besides if and when the deal will go through there will no longer be a "Nokia team"; there will only be a "MS team" under the direction of MS upper echelon.

Should have split the cover up a bit, would have liked a separate run down on the premium 6" device.

Tablet wise, beyond LTE and maybe the camera not seeing a whole lot here that would make this the better buy over the surface2 probably will come down to price.

You do have to take the exclusive Nokia apps into consideration though, those aren't going to be on the Surface 2, not for a while at least.

If the MS, Nokia deal clears, which I figure it will, then all these Nokia apps will just be part of the core Windows experience going forward, which Is a plus. That said, MS has the money to push Lumia device rollout quicker, Nokia still can't pump out enough supply and do a real global release for their new hardware. MS on the other hand managed on their 2nd time around to setup for a good Surface2/Pro2 global release (for the most part). Nokia is still trickling things out from one country to the other over time, I think it's because they don't have enough cash to do otherwise.

Added specs

Thanks for that and putting in the prices as well. I think the cheaper 6" device is probably going to be the success story of this bunch. Can't deny consumers seem to be gobbling up bigger devices and that's a pretty descent price even if it is at the expense of the higher end specs.

It seems to be limited to emerging markets though, don't think you'll see the 1320 in the US or EU for example. We'll see though, they could do a 1325 later for example.

10 hours, plus an additional 5 hours with the keyboard that has a battery.

that's pretty damn good! Looking to make a purchase soon of an RT device for consumption and occasional work (teamviewer and RDP mainly, but its nice that office is on the device as well). I need long battery as i want something i can take fishing (i do a lot of night fishing for carp, all bivvied up and comfortable) so having a long life is important.

I'll wait for actual tech reviews of both this and surface 2, the inbuilt LTE isn't important as i would just internet share from my lumia 920.

Not just Instagram was announced. Vine, Flipboard, InNote, Papyrus, Temple Run 2, Cam Scanner, Goal Live Scores, Phriz.be, RailRush and SophieLensHD are also announced.

There was a lot of information in the keynote. Too bad Neowin seems oblivious about any of it really. Especially the work Nokia is doing on WinRT is important. With the Nokia specific apps coming to the platform they will likely repeat the upswing for the platform they made happen when they got their hands on Windows Phone.

I'm hoping they announce something about the Lumia 1028 for Verizon.

Nope, nothing, at this point I don't know if Verizon will get a 1020 variant. They could just skip it and go for a newer WP with 8.1 on it and try to beat AT&T that way, but who knows?

Instagram for WP8! I'm honestly happy about this only to shut people up about windows phone not having the app. I'm already content with 6tag

Yeah, 6tag will still probably be the better app in the end but still, people new to the platform just search for instagram and want that official app, after that is done they'll try out 3rd party apps and probably switch.

I think Windows Phone users won't really care about Instagram since 6tag is already so good; the only people that will care are non-Windows Phone users who demand it as a checkmark for a solid app ecosystem.

Heh, I like how Instagram makes an ecosystem "solid." I can't wait till this stupid ass instagram phase is over. If someone is going to share pictures, I don't want to see them with filters /rant

No, the care and demand were from Windows Phone users too. Obviously not all of them, but I wouldn't go as far as to say it was only from non-users. I mean, having an officially supported app on a platform is great. As I've learned in all of my years, third party apps can be great too, but become useless once the owner of the service changes a few APIs.

It is definitely worth it when Microsoft can go on stage next year and say that they have 100% of the top free IOS apps.. I think that would really change peoples idea of the platform..
