Just hours ago, Nokia unveiled its latest flagship device, the Lumia 920. Running on the refreshed Windows Phone 8 platform, the Lumia 920 comes packed with interesting innovations which are welcomed in an era where a lot of high end phones start to resemble each other. Among these innovations are wireless charging and a super sensitive touch screen called PureMotion HD+ which allows you to use the phone with gloves on or with very long fingernails (someone did not cut their nails!). The phone also comes loaded with the new PureView anti-blur image stabilization technology that guarantees that every shot you take is crispy clear. The latter feature is exciting to put to actual use as the 8MP Carl Zeiss camera shoots at f/2 and I’m dying to see more competition vs the HTC One X and Samsung’s Galaxy S3 cameras which are both extremely awesome.
The wireless charging tech uses something I’ve discussed before using magnetic induction to charge your devices. Nokia’s version comes in a nice little “pillow.” The wireless charging accessory needs to be bought separately. Out of the box, the Lumia 920 comes with a USB fast charger.
