Screen Test: Nokia Lumia 1520 versus Galaxy Note 3

1200-nokia_lumia_1520_yellow-1Nokia’s so proud of the display that they put in the Lumia 1520 that they had setup a demo zone that simulated the lighting available during various times of the day e.g. in sunlight, indoors etc and the idea was to see how the screen kept up with the changing lighting.

Both devices were set to automatic maximum brightness, and this is how they stood up.

Hint: The Nokia killed it.

Nokia World Comes Along, Possibly For The Last Time – October 22, Abu Dhabi

The date and location for what could turn out to the last Nokia World ever has just been announced, and this year’s Nokia extravaganza takes place in Abu Dhabi on the 22nd of October. Microsoft is in the process of acquiring Nokia’s handset division, but till the time that happens, its business as usual for Nokia. There have been lots of rumours recently about a Lumia phablet and a Lumia Windows RT tablet, and all of those things are more should come to fruition come the 22nd of October.

Nokia World 2013

This is the first time Nokia’s annual Nokia World event is happening outside Europe, and the fact that this could be the last Nokia World makes it even more special. It takes time for acquisitions such as the present one to close, so it is possible that Nokia might still be the Nokia that we know today by the time Mobile World Congress comes along, but there’s a negligible chance that there will be time for another Nokia World.

I’m sure all the Nokia employees know this, and will be pumped for a final blowout before they come under the big Microsoft umbrella. I greatly look forward to remembering this as the best Nokia World, instead of the last. October 22nd can’t come soon enough.
