share on:

Nokia continues to fight for a relevant spot in the smartphone market, recently adding a 10-inch tablet, the Lumia 2520, and a new 6-inch Lumia 1520.

The announcements were made at its showpiece Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi.

Apple is also expected to reveal its new iPad range later on Tuesday.

The Nokia tablet is its first to run on Windows and comes with a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor.

It also has fast LTE connectivity for mobile use, a 6.7 megapixel camera, and can hook up to Nokia’s slimline Power Keyboard.

The Lumia 2520 is due out before Christmas and will cost $499 (N80,000) in the US, while a UK price has not yet been revealed.

Nokia also updated its smartphone line-up at the Abu Dhabi showcase.

Its brightly-coloured Windows Phone handsets now come with a six-inch screen.

The display size of the new 1520 and 1320 Lumia phones trumps that of rivals such as Samsung’s Galaxy S4, reflecting a trend toward ‘bigger is better’ when it comes to flagship handsets.

The 1520 model also has a full 1080p high definition display and a 20 megapixel camera. The 1320 model has a 720p screen.

Windows Phone devices are now starting to gain popularity with consumers, largely thanks to Nokia.

They now have 9.2% share in the main European markets, according to researchers Kantar World Panel, up from 5.2% a year before.

However, they still lag significantly behind Android and Apple iPhone handsets.
