Nokia gets Windows Phone 8 fever: Lumia 920 and 820 wrap-up

We've been at Nokia's Windows Phone 8 event all morning, and the event has given us plenty to talk about. Most important is the reveal of the Nokia Lumia 920, which many figured was going to be officially announced at this event. The Lumia 920 is here at last, and it's definitely worthy of being called Nokia's new flagship device. Naturally, we managed to get some hands-on time with it, and we were pretty pleased with what we saw.

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.

Nokia: Cheaper Windows Phones will take on Android “aggressively”

Nokia will push for even cheaper Windows Phone handsets than the current entry-level Lumia 610, CEO Stephen Elop has confirmed today, so as to "compete with Android aggressively." Speaking on the company's impromptu Q&A call today, following news earlier today that Nokia would cut 10,000 jobs, Elop said that reducing the cost of entry to Windows Phone was a primary goal for the near future.

Nokia admits $1.7bn loss in Q1 2012

Nokia has announced its Q1 2012 financial results, with a huge €1.34bn ($1.7bn) operating loss despite sales of $7.4bn ($9.7bn) in sales. Smart devices sales more than halved year-on-year as Nokia's Symbian line lost traction, declining 38-percent from Q4 2011; meanwhile, mobile phones - the bread and butter of Nokia's bottom line - fell 32-percent year-on-year, and down 24-percent on the previous quarter. "We have faced greater than expected competitive challenges" CEO Stephen Elop admitted, adding that "actual sales results [of Lumia Windows Phones] have been mixed."

Nokia has just six months to claw its way from collapse

Nokia has just six months to claw its way from collapse

Nokia has six months to redeem itself with Windows Phone, analysts warn, before it needs to find a "Plan B" other than Microsoft's platform. After dire financial warnings earlier this week, in which Nokia not only confirmed that Symbian device sales were ditching, but that Lumia Windows Phone sales were only a fifth of those Symbian volumes, the outlook for the company is grim. However, while many suggest Nokia isn't, in fact, to blame for the most significant shortcomings in its device strategy, that won't save it from failure if it doesn't turn things around.

Nokia Lumia 900 vs iPhone 4: The $99 Showdown

Nokia Lumia 900 vs iPhone 4: The $99 Showdown

Big news today is Nokia's US re-entry, with the Lumia 900 scoring some cautiously congratulatory reviews - ours included - at an ambitious AT&T price point and the heft of Microsoft behind it. Of course, the LTE Lumia goes up against a serious smartphone heavyweight, with Apple's iPhone 4 dominating the same $99 niche. It may be the last-gen model, but the iPhone 4 is still a mighty popular device and the iOS and App Store combination makes for a strong argument. Strap on your smartphone helmets, people, it's time to get competitive.
