Nokia Phablet Release Date Q4 2013

Nokia wants to make a big impression with its first-ever phablet.Citing unnamed sources, The Verge reports that Nokia is working on a device codenamed the “Bandit” that will release by the end of the year and will have a 6-inch, 1080p display, a quad-core Qualcomm processor and a camera that’s “at least” 20 megapixels. We’ve heard plenty of rumblings about Nokia releasing a 6-inch phablet but this is the first solid report we’ve seen indicating that the device will be ready to launch sometime over the holiday quarter in 2013. The next four months figure to be a busy one for phablets since Samsung, Nokia and BlackBerry will all likely release large smartphones by the end of the year.
