However, if you want to drill down the phone specification deeply, here is the link which will surely help you to have complete control over Nokia Lumia 920 from hardware prospective.
Has Company Got It Right With Nokia Lumia 920
Nokia has unveiled the phone at the time when Apple’s iPhone 5 is just at the next corner. Though, Nokia Lumia 920 is not the first ever Windows Phone 8 industry is witnessing; Last week Samsung already showcased Samsung Ativ S – 4.8 inch screen Windows Phone 8 – smartphone at IFA event. While, HTC is also pulling its sleeves to place its bet in Windows Phone 8 space after two weeks. In all such scenario, securing a sizable market for its Windows Phone 8 beast won’t be a cake walk.
However, there are few factors favoring Nokia and could be helpful to improve its market share in smartphone industry with Nokia Lumia 920. The recent verdict over Apple-Samsung pact has apparently pushed Samsung on back foot and Apple is demanding immediate black-out of atleast 6 Samsung smartphone from market. This could possible create some gap in demand-supply and Nokia can leverage upon the situation by filling its Nokia Lumia 920 there. Anyhow, by setting up Nokia Lumia 920 with 4.5 inch screen Nokia has placed it directly opposite Samsung’s Ativs S for head-to-head competition.
The direct support from Microsoft – the company who developed Windows Phone 8 OS – could be another factor for Nokia to leverage upon.
Undoubtedly, Nokia has superbly loaded Lumia 920 phone with many great features from hardware and software prospective. A high definition super responsive screen, high-quality HD camera and long lasting battery backup of 10 hours are enough to entice users who are looking forward to own Windows phone.
However, it would be interesting to see how Nokia tags Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 smartphone when it comes to affordability. And, if Nokia is ready to welcome low margin gains or even marginal loss by selling it quite competitive cost, it would be definitely an intelligent move which would prove beneficial in long run for Nokia.
Unfortunately, the wait has got little long to survive as Microsoft would be launching Windows 8 only in October, followed by the launch of all Windows Phone 8 smartphones.
