Harvey Norman to sell Nokia Lumia 1520 as telcos miss out

The first Lumia phablet to hit stores on December 11

Harvey Norman has been named exclusive Australian launch partner for Nokia’s Lumia 1520 smartphone, making it the sole retailer of the vendor’s first ‘phablet’ play.

This means the device will not be sold through any traditional telecommunications carriers.

The Lumia 1520 is built with a 6-inch screen, making it Nokia’s “first ever large screen Lumia smartphone.” The display has resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, a boost over previous operating system restrictions which limited Windows Phone devices to 1280x720.

Inside the phablet is a quad-core, 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, the same chip which is used in the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and LG G2. There is also 2GB of RAM.

The Lumia 1520 will arrive on Harvey Norman’s shelves on December 11 in black, white and yellow, although pre-orders opened both in-store and online today.

The device will sell for $899, and includes 32GB of internal storage which can be further boosted via the built-in microSD card slot that supports up to 64GB. Nokia has also thrown in 7GB of SkyDrive Cloud storage.

A $20 app voucher for the Windows Phone Store is bundled as well.

Harvey Norman will also stock official Lumia 1520 Protective Covers (in yellow and black colours) for $34.95

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
