Nokia Lumia 1520 won’t be called “phablet”?

Nokia Lumia 1520 won't be called phablet?

Nokia and many folks from all around the word don’t like the word “phablet,” which was invented to describe devices which are too big to be called phones and too small to be called tablets. Samsung pioneered this market with its Galaxy Note, and now Nokia is gearing towards launching its first such device, Lumia 1520.

But since the Finns don’t like the word “phablet,” they’re looking for a different name for its upcoming product. And it could still be called “phablet” or “big smartphone” or something else, as the company is currently surveying users about the name and the results could have a big impact. You can check out the questions asked in the screenshot above. In the meantime, let me remind you what to expect from the Lumia 1520: it will come with a 6-inch full HD screen, quad-core processor (most likely made by Qualcomm), at least 2GB of RAM and a ton of built-in storage. We’re expecting to see it officially announced at some point in November with AT&T offering it in the United States…

    Phablet could be a bad word, but big smartphone is even worse…

    Yes its just a SmartPhone with a big Screen. The 1020 has a big camera you dont call that CamPhone. Phablet is just a stupid invented name that has to be forgotten.

    Power Phone for the genre makes sense even if it is a little lame.
