When Nokia called the Nokia Lumia 920 the world’s most innovative smartphone, I was very unsure about that comment. But looking at the previous post comparing the top devices currently available, in many ways, Nokia is very right.

  • PureView for blur free, low light shots, smooth videos.
  • PureMotion HD + for a really responsive display where screen is more fluid than ever
  • Super sensitive display – works with gloves/finger nails.
  • Wireless charging – another added convenience – just pop it on a charging surface. No fiddling with cables.

It’s not simply about having more numbers. BTW, as much as people accuse PureView in 808 as being just that, no it isn’t. They all eat their words when they see it in action.

Nokia first and foremost (and sadly for some) don’t enter the specs game haphazardly. They put stuff in because it benefits their users (e.g. again, 41mp sensor for PUREVIEW type 1) and not simply because more numbers will attract.

Last night, Jo Harlow tweeted,

“As we said, the Nokia Lumia 920 is the world’s most innovative smartphone!”

Anssi Vanjoki jabbed back:

Jo you still have to beat N9 and 808, but other than that you have it 🙂

Credit where credit is due, N9 is super innovative in many ways. The design and the Swipe UI are remarkable. 808 was the device Vanjoki hinted at years before as that DSLR like Nokia. And heck, we’ve seen comparisons by third parties to say Nokia’s done an excellent job on that.

The 920 also has great innovative features of its own. It’s not fighting in the numbers game. It’s fighting in features that actually will be useful for the end user.

Either way, all three are Nokia devices.

We can only hope that Microsoft speed up to show us the much anticipated software side of consumer features. BTW I think they should be banned from showing resizing of live tiles for more than 5 seconds.

BTW, I found this funny image RT’d by Nitish Murphy. Just a playful jab.
