Nokia Lumia 625 with 4.7 inch screen on the way

Nokia appears to be working on its largest Windows Phone handset to date. the Nokia Lumia 625 is expected to sport a 4.7 inch display, making it about the same size as an HTC One.

But the Lumia 625 doesn’t seem to be a top-tier phone. It may be large, but it’s expected to have the specs of a low to mid-range phone, including a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, and an 800 x 480 pixel display.

Nokia hasn’t yet officially introduced the phone, but LiveSide notes that it recently showed up at the TENAA website — that’s basically China’s version of the FCC.

The website listing describes a WCDMA phone with support for HSDPA, HSPUA, and GSM networks. Word on the street is that it will also support 4G LTE, but there’s no mention of that on the TENAA site.

    I’m reminded of the old Starkist Tuna commercials…
    “Sorry Nokia, people want smartphones that taste good, not just smartphones with good taste.”
    Yeah I’m that guy.

    This would be right up my alley (probably) if the upcoming WP8 update containing CalDAV and CardDAV weren’t locked to be Google only. It’s a race between the still in-the-works Geeksphone consumer model with Firefox OS and a Nokia Lumia to see who meets my basic requirements first. They’re both close (surprisingly, WP is closer) but missing the mark by a hair. All the winner needs is CalDAV + CardDAV + ability to connect to my own server.
