Evleaks once again gets the scoop on an unannounced smartphone

Earlier this week, a screenshot of the long rumored 6" Nokia Lumia 1520 smartphone was leaked. The image showed the expanded Windows Phone 8 UI thanks to the extra screen real estate and increased resolution (1080p display).
 
Today, evleaks posted press shots of the Lumia 1520 showing it from the front and back. The shots also confirm the revised UI.

When the Lumia 1520 launches later this month, it is expected to feature a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and a 20MP rear-facing camera.

True, but the success of Windows really comes from early dominance in the market. Nowadays you see a lot of success from people like Apple who control every aspect of their systems, and people willing to pay super high markups for the quality increase.

Also let's be fair, I've heard almost nothing but praise from people who have owned Zunes, Windows Phones, and Surfaces. They are all actually rather high quality devices. The older zunes had their fair share of issues but the Zune HD was quite an impressive device. Full touch enabled Super AMOLED display, and what most people consider to be metro at its best, doing a d*mn fine job.

I think the problem with the surface (RT) is a combination of Windows 8's poor image and being way too overpriced compared to its competition, especially the ipad. I can't really speak on why the pro wasn't much of a success, as most reviews show very high praise of the device. Probably just Windows 8.

Wrong. The success of Windows was the fact that Microsoft threw in a freebie copy with every one of those soap bar Mice they sold back in the day. Windows 3.x and earlier were nothing more than lipstick & mascara over the top of a DOS command line.

The real graphical OS at the time was OS/2 - unfortunately IBM had no clue how to market products to anyone but corporate customers (they still don't). Even though OS/2 was far superior in every way, when Microsoft came out Windows 95 along with their grass-roots attitude for selling to 'the little guy', they kicked IBM's ass.
