At the Nokia Dubai Event the latest Lumia phones and tablet were revealed to world for the first ‘official time’. The event presenters were able to show off the sleek new phones and their glamorous features. Both phones and tablet made a significant impact on the audience by showing off the latest mobile technology.
The Lumia 1320 and 1520 are essentially the same device, the only later being slightly more powerful. They can back up the impressive standards of quality they set on paper with the camera, processor, and overall design. The phone is sleek and has the capabilities to be customized entirely based on the user’s preferences. The picture quality is excellent and is ahead of the Samsung S4 and iPhone 5. The user interface with the mobile Windows OS has also improved to the point where someone can buy a Nokia phone, tablet and Windows 8 based PC for a complete loop of shared information without loss of time and data. This will allow many individuals and businesses to finally combine the work they do on the go with the work done in the office without the inconvenience of converting formats or paying for expensive solutions with other name brands like Apple. Overall, the direction the phones are going in reflect what users want: a balance between practicality, entertainment, and socializing.
The 2520 tablet is able to beat the current competition but may not compare with the next generation of competitors on the market later this year. On paper this tablet seems to be worlds apart from all other brands but once seen in action, it looks and acts like most other tablets without any real differentiation except for the OS. They have laid excellent ground work in making the device work well with the Windows OS RT 8.1 seamlessly. Microsoft Office looks like it might finally have the capability to run on a light weight device without slowing down the entire device. The Snapdragon processor flew through the presentation well, but I am curious to see how it handles incredibly large PDF and Power Point Presentations while multi-tasking with other programs. The price may be its greatest enemy with its competitors releasing their own for around the same price and the similar capabilities.
If I were a perspective buyer for these devices I would thoroughly try them out and only buy them with a concrete return policy. While I do not doubt the quality of the devices, they are brand new and therefore might have a few serious bugs remaining. However I am still hopeful that issues like those will be handled well with updates as time progresses. These products look rock solid and the consumers should embrace them as such.
