There are three new Asha phones. These are Nokia's low-cost, low-tech mobiles. The 500, 502 and 503 are new, with the 503 being the first Asha to offer 3G.

The bigger screen results in more Live Tiles on the homescreen.

Nokia's new Storyteller app automatically integrates your photos into a maps interface, using Nokia's Here Maps info. Your pictures are then placed in 'sets', based on where they were taken.

The 1520 has four microphones, and has 32GB of storage, plus a microSD card slot. Nokia is also bringing Vine and Instagram to Windows Phone, for more photography fun.

And so is Instagram! Great news if you have food or pets that are currently going unphotographed.

The 1520 isn't Nokia's only new 6-inch phone -- there's also the 1320, a lower-spec mobile with a dual-core processor and a lower-resolution screen, as well as a less powerful camera. That more modest hardware should keep the price down though.

Nokia says the 2520 boasts a very bright screen, to make it easy to read in the sunlight. It has a unibody design and LTE.

It has a 6.7-megapixel camera on the back, and Nokia seems very proud of this tablet's photo prowess -- but do you really want to be taking pictures with a device this large?

The Lumia 2520 takes admirable photos of boats, apparently. There's a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls, or the occasional selfie.

This is the Nokia power keyboard, which turns the 2520 into a little laptop, and also provides extra battery power.

It's out in the US and UK first, later this year, for just shy of $500. It's powered by Windows RT, though -- so you'll only be able to install software that comes from Microsoft's own app store.
