Nokia Lumia 920 hands-on extended cut: City Lens and PureView

We had an extended look at the Nokia Lumia 920 this week courtesy of Nokia and Microsoft, complete with a brief glance at the difference between standard and PureView photography technology. What you're about to see is a look at the unibody-like design of the hardware first, then a vision of what it means to work with Windows Phone 8 with Nokia-specific additions like Nokia City Lens and wireless charging right out of the box. And of course you'll have Microsoft's full suite of Office apps to back you up as well, SkyDrive included!

Nokia Lumia 820 hands-on extended cut with NFC

Nokia Lumia 820 hands-on extended cut with NFC

It's time to have a bit longer look at a video showing off Nokia's brand new Lumia 820, the smaller of the two smartphones revealed this week with a fully functional version of Windows Phone 8 onboard. This device has many of the same powerful attributes as the Nokia Lumia 920, but has a bit smaller profile and brings in rounded edges and an interchangeable backplate that doesn't have NFC embedded right out of the box. What we got to see yesterday was not just the special NFC-toting backplate that you can purchase separate from the 820, but the device working live with Nokia City Lens and Nokia Transport as well.

Nokia admits PureView Lumia 920 video fake (but OIS does work)

Nokia admits PureView Lumia 920 video fake (but OIS does work)

Nokia has confessed to faking the eye-catching PureView demo video for the freshly announced Lumia 920, admitting it manufactured the stabilization demo but insisting the real thing is just as capable. The "floating lens" 8-megapixel camera on the new Windows Phone 8 flagship was billed as a ground-breaking advance in mobile photography, but closer examination of Nokia's initial demo footage raised doubts as to its authenticity. Now, Nokia has released a second video, showing exactly what PureView OIS on the Lumia 920 is able to do.

PureView rebooted: Nokia shows why Lumia 920 camera is special

PureView rebooted: Nokia shows why Lumia 920 camera is special

Nokia's new Lumia 920 may not be PureView as we've known it, but that doesn't mean it's not some darned clever camera technology all the same: think springs in your smartphone for a start. A new side-by-side video demo of the stabilization system in play - which you can see after the cut - shows another string of PureView's catch-all camera bow, relying not on masses of megapixels but on how a more average sensor does its business.

Nokia knew Windows Phone 7 was an update dead-end claim insiders

Nokia knew Windows Phone 7 was an update dead-end claim insiders

Nokia was fully aware of the update limitations of Windows Phone 7 when it signed up to use Microsoft's platform, insiders have suggested, and knew from the outset that early-adopters would not get WP8. The Finnish company's urgency to migrate from Symbian to Windows Phone pushed it to compromise on handset longevity, TechCrunch's sources claim, after Microsoft confirmed yesterday that all current-generation handsets would get a UI update in the shape of Windows Phone 7.8 rather than the full refresh for new devices this fall.
