The Nokia acquisition has still not been followed through and we still have a backlog of Nokia smartphones on Windows Phone 8, waiting to be released as soon as possible.
The Nokia Batman seems to be the next on the list and in untrue Batman style, a leaker has found the phone behind the mask, with Evleaks claiming it will have the commercial name Lumia 1320, a little less exciting.
Even though it would have been nice to have a phone called ‘The Batman’ it does not look like today is the day, with Nokia sticking to its regimental Lumia numbers, advancing beyond the thousands, into the millions unless Microsoft cuts the name.
Nokia Batman = Lumia 1320

Not much is known about the smartphone, with the Nokia Lumia 1520 and Lumia 2520 both leaked in the past month, we may see this as a mid-range or high-end device to take over the Lumia 1020 spot, as a normal sized smartphone.
The Lumia 1520 appears to be the first phablet to take advantage of the GDR3 update and Nokia may be preparing a handful of smartphones for this occasion, high and low end. This would be a big move to make sure all their phones come with quad-core processors and 1080p screens and may push the Windows Phone platform forward.
As for the Lumia 2520, this looks to be Nokia’s first real tablet running Windows RT at the high-price of $499. Early reports show impressive specs but running the redundant operating system may kill the tablet before it launches.
We do like the sound of Nokia making more devices before the inevitable movement to Microsoft. We hope to see something like the Lumia 1020 with a smaller extrude on the back and a 1080p screen.
