Nokia announced the world's first giant-sized Windows Phone, the Lumia 1520. It will have a 6-inch screen, which makes the phone's display a full inch larger than Samsung's Galaxy S4 and two inches larger than Apple's iPhone 5S. It's also the first phone to take advantage of the newest version of Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 software, which has been designed to work on giant "phablets" (part phone, part tablet).
that is really cool. i was actually just asking myself the other day when they were going to come out with the next nokia lumia, and now i have an answer. i originally wanted the 1020 for christmas, but now i want the 1520. it looks really awesome.
The fact that we still discuss this is ludicrous. Simply ask yourself, “Is school is supposed to be preparing students for career success?” Of course! There are few careers where you would hear a debate about the need for access to technology. It’s a no-brainer that to be successful in the world, instant access to knowledge, people, and tools of communication are necessary. This is no different in our schools.

Video gaming causes increases in the brain regions responsible for spatial orientation, memory formation and strategic planning as well as fine motor skills. This has been shown in a new study conducted at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development and Charité University Medicine St. Hedwig-Krankenhaus. The positive effects of video gaming may also prove relevant in therapeutic interventions targeting psychiatric disorders.
Sometimes i ask myself this same question. these were interesting questions that i would have thought of, i would have thought of compatibility and setup. i think i would have to agree with the picture and buy microsoft.
