Windows Phone is about to get a whole lot bigger physically, that is. According to a report from The Verge , Nokia is currently testing a 6-inch Windows Phone device. Codenamed Bandit, a 6-inch display would make this the biggest Windows Phone yet, and the first phablet for Windows Phone in general. The phone reportedly features a 1080p display and is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which also places it at an advantage against the rest of the competition, which top out at 720p resolution and dual-core processor chips. But the biggest news is that the Bandit will feature a rear camera with at least 20-megapixel resolution. There will be a slight bump on the back of the phone to accommodate the large sensor, like weve seen on the Lumia 925. Nokia is no stranger to pushing the limits of mobile photography, as weve seen most recently with the 41-megapixel Lumia 1020 . My biggest concern would be the size, as most Lumia devices so far have been on the bulky side, but the Verge is reporting the Bandit will have a thin, lightweight polycarbonate design. Nokia just started to roll out its Amber update , which includes a host of improvement for Windows 8 Lumia devices. The Bandit should include all of these updates, and Microsoft is currently at work on a WP update of its own , which will include features like an additional column of Live Tiles on 1080 phone screens. The Bandit is reportedly being tested for release before the end of the year on AT&T. The Verge is also reporting that Nokia is planning to add the Lumia 925 to additional U.S.

Children in Finland Take Up Devices from an Early Age - eMarketer

Researchers surveyed nearly 400 parents of children in that age bracket, and 100 teachers. A fair percentage of children ages 7 and 8 reportedly had familiarity with PCs, mobile phones and even tablets. Three in 10 children of this age used a desktop or laptop, the adults said, and one in five used a tablet. Older children were more likely to use laptops and tablets, but less likely to use a desktop. Mobile phones were the stars, though, with penetration over 90% in all age groups. In fact, parents and teachers said that every child they knew aged 11 or 12 used a mobile phone. Even the youngest children made use of their mobile phones for a wide variety of activities. Phone calls were most popular, but at least two-thirds of children also played games on their phones, and around 60% took photosthough children became much more involved in texting than picture-taking as they got older. About two-fifths of 7- to 8-year-olds listened to music on their mobile. Interest in this, too, was much higher among older children. This breadth of activities implies relatively advanced phones, and indeed large numbers of children owned smartphones. The proportion of smartphone owners ranged from 49% among children 7 and 8 to 80% among the 11- and 12-year-olds. These figures are intriguing in the context of overall smartphone penetration in the country.
