Nokia the true innovator: How Europe’s biggest tech company miniaturized an imaging monster in the Nokia Lumia 1020

A very interesting read from the folks at TheRegister who seem to be all hats off to Nokia’s engineers, the folks who are pushing the boundaries of tech. It’s the same author, Andrew Orlowsk, that gave so much praise for the 808‘s imaging.

So it’s almost shocking in 2013 to see real engineers pushing the limits and producing something with the capacity to startle.

Last week we saw Europe’s biggest tech company, Nokia, do just that, with its Lumia 1020 phone

Products like these is why I’m a Nokia fan. Engineers that produce these innovations at Nokia is why I’m a Nokia fan. It’s that potential to create truely ground breaking products is what set Nokia apart for me. Competition may have caught them on the wrong foot but they’re picking themselves up and continuing to do what they do best. Create products that astonish.

It was nice to read someone that understood the product Nokia announced last week and because of it, they truly appreciate what Nokia accomplished.

I don’t know if this is just internal speak, but apparently WP is not limiting Nokia in terms of the 808 style imaging.

Windows Phone is not limiting us in any way. It’s the other way around -  Alakarhu, Nokia

Orlowski says it’s been quite some time since journalists came away impressed:

Comparing notes after technical sessions, I would say it’s some years since journalists came away from a launch quite so impressed.

Seee. Good products, need great communication for people to understand why your product is so good. That’s why we harp on so much about having clarity and effectiveness in things like your keynotes and ads (which btw, the little promos thing that was released on launch day where we have some more artsy farsty stuff…I’m gonna need to lay in on you again for that, Nokia)

Cheers James Scott for the tip!
