    Good riddance, at last they added microsd slot to a higher end Lumia. Making my choice easier, Note 3 (N9005) order cancelled :D. I am getting a 1520 instead (I.e. when it becomes available).

    Edit:
    By the way, it was also announced that finally Flipboard is also coming to WP pretty soon.

    Yeah. Their colour schemes appeal to me as well.

    I hope these bigger devices are as durable as my 920, which my children have dropped several times with almost no scratch. Even though they did make a video hammering nails with 920's screen (I didn't try that), I think Nokia needs to sell that point a bit harder. The durability alone might keep me as a customer in the future.

    Nokia, very clever with the time in that photo ;)

    I'm blown away by the 1520's display because my 22" monitor doesn't even have that kind of resolution.

    I'd seriously consider this phone, but I'd first want to know how easy the transition from Android to Windows is.

    I am using Lumia 920 and Galaxy S3 (GT-i9300) as my daily drivers for a long while now. When I switched from WinMo to android, it was a mess and took me a while to get used to it.TBH it is still bit messy for a novice user, but a lot better now.

    However, when I purchased first WP phone, it roughly took about 10 +/- minutes for me to know where most of the stuff is. So, there you go, I'd suggest you to go out and try one and see what happens.
