Nokia Lumia 1520

Nokia at CES showcased the newest member of its Lumia smartphone family: the Lumia 1520.

First introduced in India in December and now available through AT&T in the U.S., the Nokia Lumia 1520 has the same look and feel as its predecessors, the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 925, but stands apart for a couple of reasons. For starters, the Lumia 1520 is a bigger device, with a 6-inch display compared with the 4.5-inch display on the 1020 and 925. For that reason, it's also a little heavier in the hand, weighing in at 0.44 of a pound (the 1020 and 925 weigh 0.34 of a pound and 0.3 of a pound, respectively).

The Lumia 1520 is also the first phone from Nokia to launch with Lumia Black, the latest version of the Windows 8 Phone OS. Lumia Black offers up new features such as an App Folder, a new Start screen tool for grouping together similar apps and settings, and Nokia Storyteller, an app that arranges users' photos by date and place and then locates them on an interactive map, to create "stories" from their snapshots.
