The Verge reviews the giant Nokia Lumia 1520:

Samsung and others have proven that there is a market for giant smartphones, warts and all. But that doesn't mean that just any smartphone is better if it's bigger, and the 1520 is a prime example of that. It's bigger and faster than any other Windows Phone yet, but it's not necessarily a better Windows Phone because of that. If all you've ever wanted in life is a Lumia 925 with a magnifying glass on top of it, the 1520 is exactly that. It's a tour de force in resolution and speed, but it's not a great smartphone or even a great replacement for a tablet.

And yet, it'll be a better tablet than any Windows 8.1 RT device. There's something poetic about that.

But at least there was a clear distinction between Classic Mac and Mac OS X, and eventually their tablet and phone iOS. Whereas with Windows you have either Windows 8, which is backwards compatible, Windows RT, which isn't, and Windows Phone 8 which is almost an independent platform in it's own right. Such similarly named and similarly looking systems just lead to confusion...
