Nokia Lumia 1320 arriving in the UK on February 24

Nokia Lumia 1320 arriving in the UK on February 24The steady growth of the phablet movement has seen the emergence of the extra-big-phone-with-a-small-price segment, and Nokia's take on the genre, the Lumia 1320, has just been detailed for its UK release.

The 6in Windows Phone 8 handset will be available Monday after next – February 24 – and will go for free on contract or just under £300 if you're buying it outright.

Nokia announced the Lumia 1320 at Nokia World in October last year, though it didn't attract the attention of the equally large but far fancier Lumia 1520.

It drops the Lumia 1520's quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor for a dual-core Snapdragon 400, though running at a decently nippy 1.7GHz, and while the 6in display unsurprisingly comes with a lesser 720p resolution rather than its big brother's 1080p, you do get Gorilla Glass 3 on the outside to keep it protected.

Storage is 8GB (with a further 7GB of SkyDrive storage), while the camera is an unremarkable 5MP offering, though it does offer 1080p video capture and comes with the Camera and Storyteller apps.

One significant plus is support for 4G LTE, while considering the spec the 3400mAh battery is pretty massive.

It's been a bit of a wait for it to finally arrive in the UK, but when it does touch down later this month the Nokia Lumia 1320 will be available on contract from EE, Virgin Mobile and Carphone Warehouse.

At the time of writing, Carphone Warehouse was the only one of the three to have a pre-order page live, with deals offering the Lumia 1520 free up front on 24-month contracts starting at £21 per month.

It'll also be available SIM-free, of course, with the ever-speedy Unlocked-mobiles having already got a Lumia 1320 pre-order listing up offering it for £294.98, while CPW is listing it for £299.95.

Storyteller app... hmmm I like. No, actually, I hate. I never ever geo-tag photos. And without that, the apps does nuddin.
