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.

Verizon’s Lumia lifeboat could buoy Nokia

Verizon’s Lumia lifeboat could buoy Nokia

The mobile device and data carrier Verizon is often considered the one to beat in the United States, making this week's report of a possible exclusive release with Nokia a ray of positive light for the smartphone manufacturer. Sources have mentioned the possibility of a device coming to Verizon in the very near future by the name Nokia Lumia 928, one we've heard rumors of before. This device would take the successes of the Nokia Lumia 920 and bring a Verizon-tuned setup to the market with 4G LTE, aiming for a win with Windows Phone 8 while the majority of the devices carried by this top US mobile provider run iOS or Android.

Nokia Lumia 928 tipped for Verizon with aluminum body

Nokia Lumia 928 tipped for Verizon with aluminum body

This week the folks at Verizon and Nokia appear to be closer than ever to releasing a Windows Phone 8 machine to beat the rest - an upgraded version of the Nokia Lumia 920 with 4G LTE. This new model will have 4G LTE as the AT&T version did, but with Verizon backing it up it'll have a whole new aluminum body, Xenon flash for its back-facing camera, and a new name, as well. Welcome today - unofficially, for now - the Nokia Lumia 928.

Nokia Lumia 720 USA release imminent: FCC tapped

Nokia Lumia 720 USA release imminent: FCC tapped

Today the Nokia Lumia 720 has been spotted running through the hoops at the FCC, this being one of the prerequisites for a USA release and a generally OK indicator that a launch here in the states is imminent. We got to take a peek at the Lumia 720 just a week ago at Mobile World Congress 2013 and found it to be a rather impressive machine - especially considering how inexpensive the company aims for it to be. We're to understand that this device may be heated to AT&T first, with the other major carriers coming up quickly behind.

Nokia Lumia 928 spotted in Verizon Wireless’s inventory

Nokia Lumia 928 spotted in Verizon Wireless’s inventory

Those of you on contract with Verizon Wireless may be excited to hear that the Nokia Lumia 928 has been spotted on Verizon's inventory log. The Lumia 928 has actually been placed there way back in January 17th, and it should be coming out sometime in the near future. Verizon's customers have been waiting anxiously for the Nokia Lumia 920 to make it to their carrier ever since it launched on AT&T's network, and while there is the Nokia Lumia 822 on Verizon's Network, it doesn't have the same aesthetic appeal as the Lumia 920.

Nokia Lumia 520 hands-on: the new high end of low

Nokia Lumia 520 hands-on: the new high end of low

In the Nokia Lumia 520 you've got Nokia's newest low-end of great, including their renewed dedication to a pure aesthetic, Windows Phone 8, and a rather inexpensive price point. This device is a bit of a shell in the way it appears in the hand, with the front being more of a flat experience while the back bubbles out, and the edges are sharp. Of course no Nokia would be a real Nokia if the edges were actually sharp as a device could be, so you'll find this device "pillowy" when compared to the rest of the smartphones of the world made by non-Nokia OeMs.
