Nokia is hoping that their 6-inch Lumia 1520 will give the Note 3 a run for its money. The Lumia 1520 is the first Windows Phone to come with a Snapdragon 800 SoC, the first with a quad-core CPU, the first with a 1080p display, and the first to compete on a hardware level with top Android devices. It also sees Nokia’s vast imaging expertise put to good use with the inclusion of a 20-megapixel PureView shooter sure to please enthusiasts out there.
The US Department of Justice has approved Microsoft’s $7.2 billion acquisition of Nokia’s mobile devices business. The official ruling came down on November 29 but wasn’t revealed until a December 2 notification from the Federal Trade Commission's Bureau of Competition.
