Just ahead of the launch of Apple's next generation of iPads, Nokia has gone big on hardware, launching six devices at its Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi.

Among the clutch of hardware unveiled on Tuesday by Microsoft's head of devices and services, Stephen Elop, were a pair of phablets, a long-awaited tablet, and three lower-end Asha phones.

The star of the show was the 1520, a glossy six-inch Full HD device with some of the highest-specced photography hardware you'll find on a phablet, including a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera and six-lens optics.

There's also some power under the bonnet, with a 2.2Ghz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM and a decent 32GB of storage for good measure.

For those with more modest budgets, there's the 1320 — a similarly sized, but more modestly specced, six-inch phablet.

The camera's been scaled down to five-megapixels, both RAM and storage are halved, the screen's HD, and there's a 1.7Ghz Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor doing the grunt work.

Known as the Lumia 2520, Nokia's first tablet also broke cover at the Abu Dhabi event.

It's a 10.1-inch slate, powered by Windows 8.1 RT, powered by a 2.2Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chip. 

There's battery life of around 10 hours, according to Nokia, and 32GB of storage.

As well as updating its Windows Phone powered Lumia range, Nokia also added some new Asha handsets to its lower-end lineup.

Among there were the Asha 500, Nokia's cheapest touchscreen to date. The three-inch display handset is a 2G device, with a two-megapixel camera.

There's a bump up in specs with the 502 (pictured above) a dual SIM handset with a five-megapixel snapper with a flash.

Like the 500, the 502 has what Nokia calls the 'ice design' – a clear Perspex outer shell.

The 503 replaces the 501 as the Asha range's flagship device. The 3.5G handset has wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as a Gorilla Glass screen.
