News from zdnet says that Lumias puts challenge to rivals with Nokia's focus on features and services with Windows Phone 8, like Nokia Maps, Nokia Transport and Nokia Drive all upgraded with new features for the two devices.
The Lumia 920 also took better pictures and video with PureView camera technology, especially in low light, than any other phone camera. It can also be charged without being plugged in; the user just places it on a wireless charging pod.
So then the big question on everybody's lips is: just how does it shape up against its two current biggest rivals, Samsung with Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Apple with the new iPhone 5 coming? The Lumia 920 will feature the same dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor as found in high-end phones in the U.S. like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X.
“This is the most innovative smartphone in the world,” said Jo Harlow, Nokia’s executive vice president. But Nokia did not say how much the phones would cost or when and where they would be available, which is unfavorable for the Nokia. Maybe while at the same time, consumers could be able to buy the new iPhone in the market.
