    Show me how it looks like and what OS its on, I "may" jump on the bandwagon.
    Oh, seems I found something - Nokia Bandit phablet may be announced in September

    Its a phone? 6 incher, man no way am carrying that all day long, unless it has some glow in the dark colors around it ;)

    Just for Humor
    Why didn't Nokia launch the Bandit?
    Because they banned it!

    Probably. Did not get 1020 as 808 owner and want to try "next gen" quad core, 1080 screened Lumia device.
    Though got a see what the design will be. Verge said it would have poly build, hoping for aluminium.

    I might be interested. I normally don't care for phablets, but I'm looking to upgrade in the near future. I've had my 920 for about nine months now, and I'm the type of person who switches phone very often, like every six months. Lumia 925 isn't an upgrade from the 920, and I didn't want to get the 1020 with its dual core hardware when the quad core phones are just around the corner. I just hope this phone comes with a large battery, like the Galaxy Note II.

    The thread 'now' reminds me of a Call of Duty game, cannot remember which version but the FPS guy used to say "Bandits, 12 o clock high" when flying in the plane ;)
    Nokia must be making a decent phablet, but chose a sick name :p

    6" will be too big for me and I think the 1020 has a better USP in the camera so that's going to be my upgrade from my 920 when Rogers release theirs.

    Doesn't matter if I want it or not. Verizon continues to fail in the Nokia department. Would it really kill them to be first with a flagship WP device, just once? I have the 8x - hardly a flagship device.

    The upgraded SoC offers almost no immediate benefits. Assuming the size remains the sole selling point, then no.

    I'm debating between the Note 3 and this 1520 (assuming that's what they call it). Given that you are a Note owner, can you tell me what you would like about the Nokia that you would cause you to prefer it over the Note 3? Is it simply Windows over Android? I came to WP from WebOS. I've never been a big Android fan, but to be honest I've never owned one. This Note 3 looks pretty nice. What can you tell me about your Note experience that might help me with my decision?

    Phablet = Phone + Tablet

    I need more details on this Bandit. If its just a huge phone with only added tiles and no added tablet capabilities, no deals.

    A phablet is more than just a huge screen.

    i have verizon too. They won't get is phone, at least not in a timeframe that is useable. Look how long it took them to get the htc one. So annoying. AT&T always gets the good phones.

    Considering what I use my Surface for most of the time, this is definitely on my list. With some of the new apps being released for WP8 (Citrix and Putty, most notably), I could probably make this my main computing device. My HP ProBook is pretty much just a testing box (it's running openSUSE 12.3 w/ VMware Workstation installed). If there's a basic RDP client released, then it would be perfect (I don't find myself in need of RDP that much, but it could be helpful in a pinch).

    Latest news: Nokia Lumia 1520 rumored to launch September 26 | Windows Phone Central

    So if it's released on the 26th Sept (presumably for AT&T) who's getting one and what are you prepared to dish out for it?

    I'm sure you know, but just saying that the actual release to the market will likely happen month or two after the announcement in September.

    This is a phone I have to try before buying, also when it will arrive here in Nordics is a big thing naturally. I would easily pay 599 for it, 699 I think is the actual price and a bit too much. For 650 I just might still get it on launch, if I'm in the hype wagon at that time.

    I am interested. I want to see if this phone has comparable battery life to the other phones running the snapdragon 800, namely the LG G2 and the Note 3.
