Top five reasons to buy Nokia Lumia 920

Nokia has unveiled its much-hyped Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8-based handset at the Nokia World 2012. The new edition of the Finnish firm’s Lumia handset comes with many special features. It mainly highlights a wireless charging technique and a Nokia PureView technology-based 8MP rear camera. The handset will also come in a number of colors including yellow and red, Nokia said at its developer conference that took place concurrently in New York and Helsinki. Here is a rundown to the specs and features of the new Lumia 920.

Reason one: Design and Display

Nokia has prepared its premium Windows Phone 8 handset with a 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ display. The screen packs a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels at 332 ppi. It shows off various features such as ambient light control, proximity sensor, polarization filter and more. It has a Monoblock body that measures in at 130.3 x 70.8 x 10.7mm and weighs at 185 grams. The 920 has six physical buttons for Windows start key, camera, power, volume, search and back on the front panel and edges.

Reason two: Windows phone 8

I would probably have placed this higher in my list if Microsoft would have allowed Nokia to actually show it off, but it seems Microsoft is running a bit behind on the software so manufacturers are not able to give demos yet. We have seen eight new platform improvements coming in Windows Phone 8 and there are still many details remaining to be revealed. I look forward to seeing what Nokia does with NFC since they have been using it well on their Symbian devices and accessories. The new Start screen looks fantastic for the way I use my Windows Phones and WP8 just cannot get here fast enough for me.

Reason three: Hardware

Lumia 920 is the first Windows Phone handset from Nokia to get a multi core CPU. The previous versions of Lumia have only single core processors due the restriction from Windows Phone 7. Now, with the multi core friendly WP 8, Nokia has included a 1.5GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor inside the 920. There is 1GB of RAM and 32GB of physical memory inside the handset. In addition, Microsoft offers 7GB of SkyDrive cloud memory for free.

Reason four: Qi wireless charging

I know this is not a huge feature, but it is something unique that distinguishes the Nokia Lumia from other Windows Phone 8 devices. I really appreciated the convenience of Qi charging with my Droid Charge and have been hoping there would be another manufacturer using this standard so I could pull out my pad and use it again. Nokia showed off several accessories that take advantage of this wireless charging technology and I am excited to try some out. The partnership deals with coffee shops is excellent and I hope we see more of these moving forward too.

Reason five: Software and application

Lumia 920 is one of the two first phones from Nokia on Windows Phone 8. The other one is its midrange version, the Lumia 820, which was also showcased at the Nokia World. Being a Windows Phone handset, it is certainly a business friendly device. A business user will be lucky to get Office applications like MS Excel, Word, OneNote and PowerPoint on the device. For storing and syncing documents, you have Microsoft’s SkyDrive cloud storage as well.

The Nokia handset supports many social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Windows Live Messenger. Document formats like PDF, PowerPoint, Excel and Word are compatible with the phone. For sending mails, users can utilize variety of clients that include Yahoo! Mail, Outlook.com, Gmail, Mail for Exchange and Nokia Email.
