NOKIA Unveils the Lumia 820 and 920, Bitch-slaps iPhone Specs
Who will offer the Flagship 920, or the mid model 820?
These phones put most other smart phones to shame and make the iPhone look like a prehistoric brick.
The Android OS has an uncertain future , between Apple’s lawsuit against Samsung, with more rumored to be on the way against other Android phone manufacturers. This could ultimately lead to a show down between Apple and Google, not in the marketplace where such a battle belongs, but in the courtroom. I think ultimately Apple will lose, at least on some of the more idiotic patents, but it will definitely slow down if not cripple the fast-moving innovation of the Android OS. It will be interesting in the meantime to see who decides to offer Nokia’s latest phones. T-Mobile? AT&T? Verizon? Sprint? No definitive news has arrived yet, except that Sprint appears, as usual, to be scratching their collective balls rather than making any decisive moves. Follow me on past the break for more discussion of Microsoft and Nokia’s new flagship!
As for Nokia’s new phones, I’m really impressed by the features, particularly on the Nokia Lumia 920. Per Nokia’s website, “Take bright, blur-free photos and videos in any light conditions with PureView technology – Optical Image Stabilisation and Carl Zeiss lens – and then relive the moment on a 4.5” PureMotion HD+ display.”
Based on currently available information, the camera takes pictures that put the iPhone, not to mention any Android phone, to shame. The Nokia City Lens allows you to find details about restaurants, shops, and services in view just by looking through your camera, which will pin a touchable label to anything in sight. Touching that label will bring up reviews and other info about the shop or restaurant in question, making it incredibly easy to figure out where you should go. Beats the hell out of launching Yelp and hunting through a list!
I hope wireless carriers see this and offer several Windows-based smart phones including the Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 right away–especially Verizon and Sprint, who’ve so far been extremely lackadaisical about supporting Windows Phone.
