Quick and dirty camera comparison Lumia 920 and Lumia 925

| July 1, 2013 | 21 Replies

| July 1, 2013 | 16 Replies

Android Central had a Wireless Charging showdown which included the Nokia Wireless charging plate. I agree in the cons that I would have liked a standard MicroUSB power input rather than the odd pin one that they have. Reddit has the answer for that it seems: Anyway, the winner amongst these is of course, Nokia. […]

I was really surprised at how nice the pictures came out, especially since […]

Here’s a promo for the Nokia Lumia 925 from Windows Phone UK. It appears that there are some sections borrowed/recycled from previous WP (USA) ads. Like I’m sure there’s some there for the 928? (Like the guy jumping into the pool? Or I’m possibly mistaken). Anyway, the point is taking pictures in low light. Here’s […]

It’s official. This explains the random summoning of Nokia’s board of directors to Finland, which some of the press thought was due to Nokia being sold off. On the contrary, it was about Nokia making huge purchases, with Huawei’s interest showing showing that NSN is indeed an excellent asset (unless as some commented, this is […]
