Delta Airlines To Upgrade More Than 20,000 Flight Attendants To Nokia Lumia 1520 Phablets

Delta Lumia 1520

Earlier last month, we reported that Delta airlines is looking to upgrade their Lumia 820 Windows Phone devices to Lumia 1520. Today, Delta themselves confirmed the news via a press release. Delta Air Lines this fall will equip more than 20,000 flight
attendants with handheld Nokia Lumia 1520 phablets, which will serve as their on-board manual and in-flight sales device as well as a platform for future, more personalized in-flight customer service.

In addition to its functionality as an in-flight sales device and replacement for the on-board manual, the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, running Windows Phone 8.1, will, as it develops, enable flight attendants to take customer meal orders, receive detailed information about their flight and provide information for personalized service, including customers’ frequent flyer status and potential need for special services during flight.

“The phablet is a great foundation for future software applications that, in time, will allow our flight attendants to readily access customer preferences, previous travel experiences with Delta and worldwide connectivity to the company, enabling them to provide the more tailored experience many customers have come to expect,” said Theresa Wise, senior vice president and chief information officer.

Switching from small to big–ditching the Lumia 920 for a 1520

Nokia Lumia 1520 Windows Phone

I had the opportunity of taking a brief look at the Lumia 1520 at the Nokia blogger meeting late last year. I was pretty impressed with it but I also thought it was too huge for me. Anyway, some time ago Nokia sent me a Lumia 1520 trial device because I always wanted to test it in normal conditions as my main device. While I was annoyed by the size in the first hours I ended up buying myself one , as  you will read after the break.

How do you carry your Lumia 1520?

Screenshot (12)

The Lumia 1520 is a huge-buttocks device and therefore does not fit in every pocket. For me personally the Lumia 1520 is a phone I can barely pocket into my trousers; I have a few jeans it fits in but there are some the half phone peeks out off, and there are many others with the same problem.

As a result of this some people are getting themselves holsters for phones (but seriously guys, do not do that! You look like an idiot with these!) or always wear jackets so they can put it there. I am that kind of person who always “hides” the phone in their trousers’ pockets. I got myself a screen protector as the pants’ stuff rubs directly on the screen and I really hate scratches which can be easily caused this way if there is only a little bit of sand or similar in your pocket, but with a protector I am good to go. If it is not too hot I put it into my jacket or coat.

But how about our readers? Where do you keep you gigantic phone? Do you like having something huge in your pants, or do you prefer putting it into the jacket? Maybe you are one of these people with a holster? Let us know in the comments below!

Nokia Monarch Lumia Device Coming To T-Mobile US

Evleaks today posted that a new Nokia Windows Phone device codenamed ‘Monarch’ is coming soon. The device will be released on T-Mobile US network. Nokia is expected to reveal two new Lumia Windows Phone 8.1 devices at BUILD developer conference next week. If the high end Lumia 930 device goes to AT&T, I guess the low-end Lumia 630 might be available on T-Mobile. And this Nokia Monarch codename could be the Lumia 630 for T-Mobile.

Nokia Lumia 521 low-end Windows Phone device is already a best selling device of its class, Lumia 630 succeeding it in the market will be a welcome move from Nokia. What do you think?
