If you guys haven’t heard, Nokia is working on a new device for the release of GDR3. The Lumia 1520 will be a phone of many firsts on Windows Phone. It will come with a 1080p display, quad core processor, and much more when it launches sometime in the near horizon – possibly early November on AT&T.
The device will also be 6-inches, making it the largest Windows Phone ever. Devices in that range straddle the line between smartphones and tablets, so naturally the media attached the name “phablets” to machines like that. Most of you really dislike that word. And so might Nokia.
Like any good company, Nokia does their market research before making plans with new devices. Sometimes that market research comes in the form of surveys sent out. A handful of you have been sending in surveys that point to upcoming researching from Nokia. They’re focused on the name of new products that are larger screen smartphones. So something like the Lumia 1520.
Here are some of the questions being asked:
Pretty straightforward. Nokia isn’t sure quite sure how to market a smartphone with a larger screen. Something they’re going to be doing pretty soon.
So what do you guys think of the word phablet? Hate it? Love it? Sound off below.
Also, can you think of something better?
Thanks for the tips/screenshots Matt and everyone!
