Nokia was the holder for several years of the crown of having the most number of mobile phone users in the world. It all changed with the introduction of smartphones, powered by the regal system iOS, and the democratic approach of the Android Project. Nokia has joined the fray with Symbian; however, the phone line ups with this OS didn't last long.
Now Nokia attempts to regain the top spot again with its new trend of mobile devices using famous technology from Microsoft Windows and state-of-the-art Carl Zeiss optics. The Finnish tech firm's new rollouts is made up of three categories of different mobile gadgets with high technology for Nokia users and loyalists around the world - the Nokia Lumia, Nokia Asha, and Nokia Belle.
Lumia features from Nokia Lumia 920
Lumia family comes with a unique lens that lets the user take a series of images in one click. It allows the user to combine smiles, edit images, and enhance in an instant to create the perfect shot.
Innovation from Lumia begins with Carl Zeiss lens, a famous lens used by professional cameras which maximises the real power of megapixels and shows the great quality out of it. PureView technology with Optical Image Stabilization and PureMotion HD creates wonderful shots of images even in low light.
Nokia Lumia 920 has 8.7MP with Carl Zeiss Lens, short pulse high power dual LED flash and resolution of 3552x2448. It has 4x optical zoom and focal length of 26.0mm
The next innovation is the Wireless Charging. For most users, cable charging is fine, but if the device has a short wire,this could be inconvenient. The Nokia Lumia 920, for example, can charge up wireless using an energy-efficient wireless charging shell. The best part in this wireless charging is it comes with different shapes, sizes, and colours, and it is also Qi-compatible that allows the owner to share the wireless charging to anyone with devices ready for it as well.
And Lumia units are Windows devices, which make it capable to sync with other Windows-oriented gadgets. That makes XBOX and SkyDrive within reach easily.
