This is the phone that a lot of us have been waiting for. It’s the Nokia Lumia 920 and this is my review after using it for 2 weeks. To summarize this review, I think the Nokia Lumia 920 is the best Windows Phone 8 device out right now. The exclusive apps from Nokia like Nokia Maps, Drive, and Music make the Lumia 920 a better buy than the Windows Phone 8 devices from HTC or Samsung. The price is also too good.
Here’s my review of the HTC 8X which is the first Windows Phone 8 device that I got to try out. The Windows Phone I used before this was the Nokia Lumia 900. Before we continue, I just want to warn you that this is running pre-production software. There might be changes or improvements when it hits the stores.
I’ve always been a fan of Nokia’s cameraphones because it meant carrying one device instead of a point-and-shoot camera AND a phone. In regards to imaging, my favorites were the Nokia N93, N82, N86 8MP, and the N8. Nokia recently announced the 808 PureView which is going to be Nokia’s best imaging phone yet. I’ve played with the device at Mobile World Congress and was impressed especially with the technology behind it. There’s just one problem. It’s not a Windows Phone device.
I’ve been playing with the T-mobile Nokia Lumia 710 for at least a week already and now I’m ready to share my review. It’s the first Nokia Windows Phone in the US. It will be available on January 11th for only $50 at T-mobile. You might even find it for free when Amazon starts selling it. Is the Nokia Lumia 710 for you?
Here’s our Nokia Lumia 800 review. When the Fedex shipment tracker said the Nokia Lumia 800 was at my door, I quickly took a cab home. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Nokia’s latest hero device. A couple of paranoid thoughts mixed with excitement went through my head during the half hour ride. What if one of my neighbors took it? What if the delivery man dropped it off at the wrong door? Fortunately, the package was safe, waiting for me when I got home.
I’m going to try something new. Instead of reviewing phones with multiple paragraphs, I’ll be more visual and now do it through videos. The first phone to get that treatment is the T-Mobile Nokia Astound. The Astound is basically the Nokia C7 with newer firmware, portrait Qwerty, updated browser, and a few other extras. Priced at only $79.99 with a 2-year contract, will it be a hit at T-Mobile? We’ll find out.
The Nokia N8 is the first Symbian^3 smartphone released globally and big emphasis is placed on its imaging capabilities. With 12 megapixel sensor, Carl Zeiss optics, and Xenon flash, the N8 takes amazing photos. However, we’re talking about a phone here. Is the Nokia N8 with the latest Symbian OS good enough to be your daily device? Read on for The Nokia Blog review.
I met with Nokia folks at the Dolby offices in New York City to preview the Nokia N8. I wondered about the location, but it made sense after remembering that the Nokia N8 is world’s first handset featuring Dolby Digital Plus. The whole ordeal was only an hour, so it left me wanting more. Read on for video and photos.
