Nokia Lumia 920
Nokia’s Lumia 920, announced on September 5, 2012, is the latest in a growing list of smartphones. This new device is notable for its versatility, its extra sensitive screen and its wireless charging feature. The Lumia 920 is expected to be released on October 27, 2012. Like other smartphones, it will be available via your cell phone service provider and at major retailers.
Nokia Lumia 920 Features
The Nokia Lumia 920, like similar devices, combines a telephone, a tablet, a camera and a video recorder. However, this new device is far from ordinary. Below are just a few of the features that set it apart from other smartphones.
- Extra sensitive touch screen – Have you ever struggled to use your smartphone with long nails or while wearing gloves? On most phones, it’s next to impossible. The extra-sensitive screen on the Nokia Lumia 920 reacts to the lightest touch, making long nails and gloved hands less of a problem. Plus, you don’t have to stab the screen repeatedly.
- Wireless charging – With the Lumia 920, you no longer have to be tied to a recharger cord. You can simply carry a rechargeable, wireless charger with you and recharge your phone wherever you are, whether you need a power source or not. The Nokia chargers are all Qi-compatible, so you can share your charger with your friend.
- Tap for wireless music streaming – The Lumia 920 allows you to stream and download unlimited music from a variety of sources for free.
- PureMotion HD+ – This technology gives the Nokia Lumia 920’s screen a higher resolution and makes it easier to read in bright sunlight.
- Sleek and lightweight – The Lumia 920 is ultra-thin and weighs just 6.5 ounces, less than 1/2 pound.
- Color choices – The Lumia 920 comes in white, black and three fun colors.
- Carl Zeiss lens – This lens captures blur-free photos, even when the camera is shaky or the photo is taken in low light.
- 4G LTE Technology – The Lumia 920 uses the fastest connectivity available. 4G LTE is up to five times faster than 3G.
- Two cameras – this device has both a front and back camera. The display is a full 4.8″–no more squinting into that tiny digital viewfinder.
