Alongside the first large screen Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 1520, we also saw a cheaper version announced at Nokia World. The Lumia 1320 is it, and although it shares the same 6-inch display as its sister phone, the resolution is lower. This, along with some other spec alterations, has dropped the Lumia 1320 price to a more reasonable level, making it perfect for emerging markets.

The Lumia 1320’s screen has a 720p resolution, but is still one of Nokia’s ClearBlack IPS LCD panels, so like the Lumia 920 it should still look great. Inside there’s a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB of RAM, bringing it into line with Nokia’s older Lumia phones, rather than the pumped-up Lumia 1520. It also has 8GB of internal storage backed up by 7GB of free SkyDrive cloud storage, and there’s a microSD card slot that can provide up to a further 64GB worth of space.

Like the other specs, the main camera isn’t up to the Lumia 1520’s high standards, and is instead rated at 5 megapixels, but is still capable of recording 1080p video at 30fps. There’s also a secondary front-facing VGA camera. Nokia has added 4G LTE connectivity to the Lumia 1320, which is good news, and other features include Bluetooth 4.0 LE and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. There’s also a built-in FM radio and support for HD Voice, while the battery is rated at a whopping 3,400mAh which should deliver up to 21 hours of 3G talk time.

The body has a rounded design and it comes in several vibrant colors, including orange, yellow, black, and white, which CEO Stephen Elop explained are intended to appeal to a “younger crowd”. So, all this should mean the phone comes in pretty cheaply, right? It does, as the quoted price for the unconnected model is $340. That’s less than half the Lumia 1520. However, at the moment we’re not expecting a U.S. release for the Nokia Lumia 1320. It’s currently set to launch in China and Vietnam in early 2014, with other Asian markets, India, and Europe to follow.

Is the Facebook algorithm bypass a scam? Or is it a hack?
The viral Facebook algorithm bypass post is nonsense.

Here we go again, folks. It's not uncommon — especially at this time of year for some reason — to start seeing all kinds of people posting the same thing on Facebook. Something about somehow "bypassing the Facebook system" or about how you hereby disallow Facebook from doing something that you absolutely allowed it to do by using Facebook in the first place.

No, it's not a Facebook hack. No, you're not telling Facebook to do anything. Or not to do anything. And, no, someone who posts this sort of stuff isn't deserving of mockery. In fact, this isn't new at all. Meta (nee Facebook) itself addressed it as far back as 2019.
