The Nokia Lumia 1520 is the most advanced Windows Phone you can buy right now. The display is the standout feature on this device, measuring 6-inches with a 1920 x 1020 resolution, it’s a sight to behold. The camera is also just as impressive. You’ll find a 20MP PureView sensor with optical image stabilization for great shots in all lighting conditions, even low-light. It first launched on AT&T here in the United States and has slowly been popping up globally since. Now our friends in Ireland will be getting some Lumia 1520 action sooner than later.

A forum page over on O2 Ireland's site indicates that they are currently testing the Samsung ATIV S on their network. The post says that testing began on December 4 for both the ATIV S and the HTC 8S. It isn't clear just how long the testing process will take, but it may be an indicator that both phones are very close to being released.

The Samsung ATIV S was the first Windows Phone 8 device announced and the last to show at the party. For reasons still unexplained, it has been delayed, with rumored release dates ranging from the end of December to sometime in February 2013. Windows Phone Central received a communication from Samsung saying that the ATIV S was still on track for the "end of the year."

Nokia has painted a Peugeot 107 in Lumia colours following a tweet from Damien in Wexford, Ireland, who stated that he’d let the Finnish Windows Phone manufacturer add something extra to his car for a new Lumia 900. This was an odd request, but one Nokia simply couldn’t pass on. 

Not only does it provide free advertising for the Windows Phone platform and the Lumia family of smartphones, but it also engages the social community with another "wow" marketing stunt.

The Lumia 610 low-cost Windows Phone is on its way to Ireland, according to Nokia Ireland on their Facebook page. The social team has stated Q2 2012 for when stock will be made available to consumers. The Lumia 610 has already been confirmed to be heading to the UK, Germany, Netherlands, and India, to name but a few.

This positive move will bring Windows Phone "Tango" to the Irish shores, offering consumers a more affordable option. The Lumia 610 sports a 3.7" screen (WVGA 800 x 480), 8GB storage and 256MB RAM. Check out the Nokia Ireland Facebook conversation transcript below:

Consumer: "when is Nokia Lumia 610 coming. I think it be great if Nokia give Lumia 610 or 720 to developers to be able to program an application and test it out. As i am working on Windows Phone application and i need a windows phone to make sure it works and i will give it back"

Nokia Ireland: "[...] the Nokia Lumia 610 will be coming to Ireland in Q2. We will be sure to keep you posted on it's arrival!"

Note that we'll keep this filed under "rumours" as nothing has been officially announced, nor is the Nokia Lumia Momentum Map reflecting this information (though it's not showing any plans for the Lumia 610 globally). 

Thanks Mike for the heads up!

Are you an Irish Windows Phone owner who resides in Dublin? Then BusFinder will be of great use to you in your installed app arsenal. Using Real Time Passenger Information (RTPI), the app displays up-to-date bus departure times across a number of routes throughout the city. BusFinder allows the user to add individual bus stops to a shortlist for convenient access and/or pin Live Tiles to the home screen that list the next three bus arrival times.

The app features Bing Map integration that clearly illustrates that particular bus route and what stops it covers, as well as the location of your current selected bus stop. Sporting a cartoony style interface with a Metro UI feel, BusFinder certainly stands out from the crowd. It will be hitting the Marketplace in the next couple of days, and will be available for €1.29 ($1.99/£1.49).

Check out the video of the app in action after the break.
