The Nokia-Soft empire strikes back

Microsoft and their favourite Windows Phone developers have struck back to the Samsung and Apple camps (even though we have no idea what the iPhone 5 will be like) with the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820, the spiritual successor to the widely well reviewed but moderately unpopular Lumia 800 and 900 devices. Nokia only sold 7 million of their first generation Lumia range, a decent sum however if you consider that Samsung sold over 10 million Galaxy S3’s alone it’s not that impressive.

According to Engadget:

As one of the first Windows Phone 8 devices to be officially announced, this device augments Espoo’s line with a larger, curved 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ display, dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU, 2,000mAh battery, NFC, integrated wireless charging and an 8-megapixel rear PureView camera capable of 1080p video.

In terms of specs it pretty much blazes past the competition and Windows Phone 8 (which the Nokia runs) is looking pretty sweet. It’s still going to be a matter of apps but from a hardware perspective it looks to eclipse what we assume is going to be the iPhone 5. Best part:

The company just formally unveiled the charging accessory — a soap-dish-shaped device based on the popular Qi wireless standard. (Of course, the Lumia 920’s built-in Qi tech means that you can use all manner of third-party charging pads; they don’t have to be made by Nokia.) Additionally, the company briefly teased a Fatboy-branded pillow also designed for recharging.

Wireless charging, high res screen, great camera and a beautiful design: sign me up!
