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.

Microsoft is currently leading desktop, office, servers, consoles, services and development fields. At the same time they need to grow their phones and tablets divisions without harming other ones, plus their advertising / search engines platforms.

When did microsoft start to lead the server field? The last number i have seen was less then 40% markedshare in the server field, thats not leading in my world.

Appently they are loosing ground on the console aswell...
