Is Nokia working on a phablet?

18 Apr 2013

Nokia is believed to be working on a new 5-inch to 6-inch phone/tablet (phablet) device that will compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2.

The Financial Times has reported that the Windows Phone 8-powered device will be part of Nokia’s Lumia range.

The Finnish phone manufacturer is also believed to be working on a new higher-end Lumia device code-named Catwalk.

In addition, a Nokia EOS PureView Lumia, which is planned for July, will come with a similar sensor to that found on Nokia’s 808 PureView.
