Nokia Lumia 1020 confirmed by Windows Phone chief in EOS Flickr goof

Microsoft's own Joe Belfiore has apparently confirmed that the Nokia EOS 41-megapixel Windows Phone will launch as the Nokia Lumia 1020 PureView, posting sample shots from the smartphone to Flickr. The inadvertent name confirmation comes courtesy of two shared images that, according to the EXIF data from the shots, were taken on a Lumia 1020. Although EXIF data can be manipulated to suggest a different camera was used altogether, it's unclear why Belfiore - Microsoft's Windows Phone Manager - would bother tampering with his own shots.

Nokia Lumia 521 Review

If you thought the Nokia Lumia 520 was good, boy are you going to have a great time with the Nokia Lumia 521. Essentially the same device as you'll be getting internationally, this T-Mobile iteration of the entry-level Windows Phone 8 device brings the same package (with slightly different radio connections and a few extra apps) to the USA, here with the same bright white back cover as we saw across the sea (one of three, as it were).

Nokia Lumia EOS could hit stores as soon as this month

We've been hearing a lot of chatter about Nokia's upcoming Lumia device called the EOS, but no solid evidence has come our way besides a few rumors about the device sporting an aluminum body, a waterproof nanocoating, and obviously a huge camera sensor and lens that looks to be the main feature of the phone. The latest rumblings is that we'll see this device in stores sometime later this month.

GoPro hits Windows Phone 8, brings exclusive “PiP” to Nokia Lumia

GoPro hits Windows Phone 8, brings exclusive “PiP” to Nokia Lumia

If you were thinking about working with a GoPro camera in the near future for all your hardcore sports-filming action and were deciding on which smartphone you'd like to pair with it, Nokia may have just made the choice a bit easier. This week the developers on the GoPro app team have made a GoPro app for Windows Phone 8, bringing exclusive features to the Nokia Lumia smartphone line while they're at it. While most Windows Phone 8 devices will be able to use this app to connect to and control their GoPro camera, only Lumia devices will have PiP (Picture-in-Picture) mode for overlaying the smartphone camera view on top of the live GoPro camera view.

Nokia EOS aluminum body prototype leaks: unlikely to hit market

Nokia EOS aluminum body prototype leaks: unlikely to hit market

If you're thinking the leaked photos you're about to have a peek at below are going to be released as a final-form Nokia EOS, you might want to re-think your summer smartphone buying strategy. What we're seeing here are several angles on a less-than-production-quality iteration of a Nokia phone - not quite the same as the EOS that we'll be setting eyes on in less than a month (July 11th, that is). What's a bit more likely is that this was a prototype of the smartphone or a potential body for a next-generation Lumia.

HTC M4 “HTC One mini” leaked aside 1080p Nokia Lumia and oversized Sony

While the HTC One appears as a Google Edition and rumors persist of a Verizon model popping up soon, an image has appeared today that suggests an "M4" model might not be far behind. While the HTC One is part of a hero smartphone strategy that has HTC fulfilling their aim to centralize their aim in one ideal design, the M4 has appeared in system code and here, today, as a fully realized model - albeit in a blurry photo, too.

Nokia Lumia 928 Review

Nokia Lumia 928 Review

Now that Verizon has its own Nokia hero smartphone working with Windows Phone 8, it's high time the platform takes off, isn't it? At the moment, the Nokia Lumia 928 is one of the nicer Windows Phone 8 devices on the market, and if it weren't for the release of the Nokia Lumia 925 (having been revealed this month right on top of the 928), it'd be an easy thing to say that this is Nokia's finest effort to date with this OS. As it stands, this device is ready instead to be the heartiest Windows Phone 8 smartphone in the USA.
