Nokia Lumia 920 comes to town

Nokia has not given up
on the battle to take
back its topmost
position in world
mobile market. Its
activities in recent
times, suggests so.
Some of its latest
devices points clearly
to the fact. From
PureView 808 with its
wonder 41 megapixels
camera to Lumia 610,
800, 900 among others
are part of the
wonders that would
make the expected
networked society a
magical world.
Yet, the device maker
is not satisfied and to
prove so, it had just
pushed out another
flagship smartphone,
the Lumia 920. The
new device will be
powered by Microsoft’s
Windows Phone
platform, tagged
Windows Phone 8.
Nokia is saying that the
new device will even
be accompanied by a
mid-tier sibling, the
Lumia 820.
Although Samsung just
introduced a prototype
of its first Windows 8
OS phone which it
tagged, Samsung ATIV
S, last week, Nokia’s
Chief Executive Officer,
Stephen Elop said that
at leat Nokia was the
first off to introduce
the real and active
device running on the
Microsoft’s amazing
Windows phone
Nokia, through its EVP
of Smart Devices, Jo
Harlow, described the
Lumia 920, as the most
innovative smartphone
in the world.
The device spots
features including an
PureView camera.
Harlow said the camera
was designed to
overcome the
challenges users face
when using the
smartphone camera as
the only camera.
The camera also spots
an improved
performance in low-
light situations and a
4.5-inch Puremotion
HD+, WXGA display,
described as better
than HD resolution.
The new device has an
updated package of
location services, like
Maps, Drive and
Transport apps. The
Lumia 920 also
includes integrated
wireless charging,
using the Qi wireless
charging standard.
There are also
accessories like
charging pillow and
music dock.
Meanwhile the
accompanying device,
Lumia 820 also shares
many features with the
Lumia 920, but with
changes like a smaller,
display (4.3-inch
WVGA); less capable
camera with 8MP
autofocus with Carl
Ziess optics.
It also has less on-
board storage, 8GB
rather than 32GB, but
with microSD memory
card support for the
low-end device.
The Lumia 820 also
features an
“exchangeable shell
design”, enabling users
to select from a range
and add Qi wireless
charging support.
The devices are both
powered by 1.5GHz
dual-core Qualcomm
processors instead of
the usual quad-core
processors used by
some high-end Android
