    Introducing the LUMIA 925
    [​IMG]
    The Finnish smartphone maker is taking the wraps off its latest flagship Windows Phone, and there's a slight twist: it's made from aluminum. Nokia's latest smartphone is trading a full polycarbonate unibody for an aluminum casing. It's not fully metal — the rear of the device will be polycarbonate, and the front is naturally made of glass — but it marks a new shift for Nokia's Windows Phone design.
    Nokia has slimmed down its Lumia flagship to just 8.5mm and a weight of 139 grams. Compare that to the 185 grams and 10.7mm thickness of the Lumia 920, and it's clear the company has focused on size and weight here. The aluminum frame, which runs around the outside of the body, helps to bring the weight down. The design includes a rounded outer frame that meets the polycarbonate rear. Nokia's positioned its rear camera in a little hump, presumably to push the overall device weight and thickness down
    Operating system Windows Phone 8
    HERE location and mapping services Free global HERE Maps and HERE Drive+;Free HERE Transit available in the Store
    Display 4.5" AMOLED WXGA ( 1280x768 ), 2.25 D sculpted Gorilla 2 Glass, ClearBlack, High Brightness Mode, Sunlight Readability, Super Sensitive Touch for glove and nail usage
    Battery 2000 mAh battery, Wireless Charging supported via an accessory cover
    Processor 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon
    Main camera PureView 8.7 MP with Optical Image Stabilization, Autofocus, short pulse high power dual LED flash, most advanced lens technology, 1080p HD video at 30fps with Optical Image Stabilization. Includes Nokia Smart Camera mode.
    Front facing camera 1.2 MP wide angle
    Memory 1GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory; 7 GB free SkyDrive cloud storage
    The Nokia Lumia 925 introduces metal for the first time to the Nokia Lumia range, bringing appeal and unique benefits like increased robustness. The polycarbonate back comes in white, grey or black. A wireless charging cover can be clipped onto the back of the phone to take advantage of Nokia's extensive wireless charging accessories and ecosystem. Covers, sold separately, come in white, black, yellow, and red.
    What changes now is the Display .. Nokia introduces the 4.5" 1280x768 Resolution Display ..
    The camera also appears to be the same except with the Lumia 925 Nokia has added an additional 6th Glass lens (to the existing 5 Plastic lens) to the Camera Module.
    It's due to go on sale in the U.K., Europe, and China starting in June, with an estimated price of 470 euros before taxes

    Design, yes !! Lumia definitely wins that one.
    Wireless charging, sure yes.

    But Windows 8? I am yet to become a fan of that :p
    Am too much of an idiot to upgrade to that :(

    This is one fantastic phone again, the Lumia 928 is US and this in UK the market is being so well fed by Nokia !!

    and for info !! the new iOS would be more than 75% copy of Windows phone 8 !!!

    then that company will claim copyright and try to gather patents also !! again and again.. but this time it is MS that would be in front of them.

    BTW, MS will make around $8.5 Billion on android phones from royalty alone. ;) by the year 2017..

    Coz Google copied all patented stuff to make android and made it free, so it is the hardware guys who are getting money using that tech, so they have to pay ;)
    Google does these things all the time. and so does other OSs' some of them are geek friendly ... are called that..
    se this Microsoft will make $3.4 billion from Android in 2013 - Neowin
