Nokia is looking to get into the large-screen game with the 6″ Lumia 1520 smartphone and the 10″ Lumia 2520 tablet. The former has all-around great specs, including a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 1080×1920 resolution display, and a 20MP camera, making it the fastest Windows Phone 8 device out there. It won’t be cheap, though, priced at $750 without a contract. Onto the tablet side of things is the $499 LTE-enabled Lumia 2520, featuring a 10-inch “HD display” that works in direct sunlight, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU @ 2.2GHz, a 6.7MP rear-facing camera (no flash) and a 2MP front-facing camera. Much like Microsoft’s Surfaces, an optional keyboard attachment is available, priced at $149, but includes an integrated battery to charge the Lumia 2520, adding up to 5 hours of extra usage.
