Leaked Bandit screen shot  (Source: evleaks)
Leaked image shows extra columns of tiles on the home screen

A leaked image has turned up on Twitter (courtesy of evleaks) that claims to be a screenshot from the big-screen Nokia “Bandit” smartphone. The screenshot shows a reworked on screen for Windows Phone specifically designed for larger screen devices – in this case, 1080p. The Nokia Bandit is supposed to have a six-inch screen and the expanded Start Screen shows two extra columns for titles.

Previously leaked details suggest that Nokia's new phone could be called the Lumia 1520 when it's officially launched.

Current Windows Phone devices only have enough space for four columns of the smallest tiles. The Starts screen on the 1520 shows six total columns of small files. Other rumored specifications for the Nokia smartphone include a QUALCOMM 800 Snapdragon processor, full HD resolution display, and a 20-megapixel rear camera.
The phone is expected to launch a Nokia press conference to be held in New York on September 26.

This has been a big week for Microsoft and Nokia with Microsoft announcing that it is purchasing Nokia's hardware division and other assets for over $7 billion.

There's a lot of blank space on that screenshot. Wouldn't it be more effectively used with more widgets?

I actually do have a small contact Widget there, but I moved it to another page to not show peoples pics and names on the web.

The point is it's exactly what I want and nothing I don't- totally customize-able to suit any needs. For info I want to see immediately like emails, feedly(widgets on another page) contacts and time/weather - widgets. For other less used items, icons and some open space to keep it from being too cluttered *which is just a personal preference.

I also prefer the tidy, clean, uncluttered home screen. I put exactly what I want and nothing I don't. My phone is totally customizable and able to suit any of my needs. I have WP8 and my start screen looks nothing like the hectic bonanza in the article's photo. You are defending your style as if it is in opposition to what WP8 offers. It seems you as if you are unfamiliar with the WP8 UI. You do know you can remove every last one of those annoying tiles right?

I have played with it. It is customizeable but not as much so and not near the widget support. Tiles sort of cover that, but to a much lesser extent. If you are going in order.

1. Android - totally customizeable
2. WP - Mostly customizeable.
3. IOS - "We know what is best for you. Icons only, just like grandpa used to use".

:D
