Nokia Bandit to steal the show with 1080p 6-inch screen, 4 core AP, 20MP camera (TechShout)
The Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) Bandit is a Windows Phone 8 addition which we’ve all been waiting for. OEMs manufacturing Android devices have been embracing the phablet segment for a couple of years now.

This is the first time we’ve heard of the Nokia Bandit. However, the specifications look quite familiar. That’s probably because everyone’s been speculating a 1080p screen and a quad core processor for various Nokia smartphones, only to be left in disappointment.
