According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, the top 5 Smartphone vendors in the third quarter of 2012 (3Q12) were Samsung, Apple, RIM, ZTE, and HTC. Nokia has been in the top 5 since 2004 when the tracker started, but was just replaced by RIM.
One thing that bothered me about Windows Phone, but learned to live with, is that apps restart when clicking on their tile from the homescreen or app list. If an app has already been launched then you go elsewhere, you can get back to where you left off by holding the back button. There was good news from WPCentral that launching an app in Windows Phone 8 that is already running will bring you to where you left off, not restart the app.
We’ve seen one clear photo of the Nokia Lumia 822 before (as the Nokia Atlas), but now there are a couple more. WMPU got their hands on the first actual photos of the Verizon-exclusive Windows Phone 8 device. I’m not really liking the color, but maybe more photos will change my mind.
Nokia Lumia and other Windows Phone devices get notifications that appear on top, but if you miss them, they’re gone. There’s no way to see a list of all previous notifications. It can be argued that live tiles on the home screen *is* the notification center, but I think there’s room for improvement. I hope Windows Phone 8 brings an improved notification experience on the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820.
I want the Nokia Lumia 920, but there’s one huge problem. We still haven’t heard of pricing or official release dates! Is it next week… next month? What sucks about waiting is that new videos keep popping up showing us how awesome this phone is going to be. Hurry up! I’m convinced. I want it now. Take my money!
The Windows Phone Youtube channel just published a new promo video for the Nokia Lumia 920. The product manager for Nokia North America shows off the red one, but take a look at his desk. Is that a cyan Nokia Lumia 920?!
We go hands-on with the Nokia Lumia 920. It’s Nokia’s new flagship Windows Phone 8 device and it will come with PureView technology. It’s not the same PureView you may have heard of from the Nokia 808, though. I’ll explain in a moment. Video after the jump.
