Two new 6in (15cm) screen smartphones, or phablets, were unveiled - the Lumia 1520 and Lumia 1320 - offering easier access to apps and other new features.

"At Nokia we have found that tablet usage peaks between six and eight in the morning and between six and nine in the evening. During the rest of the day tablet usage drops quite dramatically," Nokia chief executive Stephen Elop said.

"We are looking to shift this trend - your tablet should be as mobile and as connected as you are."
