We talk imaging with Nokia’s Juha Alakarhu and get a hands-on with Nokia’s new Refocus app

65

Over the past year we’ve had a handful of chances to sit down with Nokia’s Juha Alakarhu. He is Nokia’s camera guru and is one of a handful of individuals responsible for Nokia’s dominance in mobile photography. We first saw him at CES last year where we learned about the future of optical zoom on mobile cameras and saw his Frankenstein 808 PureView.

We just had a chance to sit down with him again here at Nokia World 2013. We saw Nokia’s new app called Refocus, learned about RAW support for Lumia devices, and how Nokia Black is going to make your current smartphone better at pictures.

A first look at the Lumia 1520's 20 MP camera

This morning, Nokia finally pulled the wraps off of the Lumia 1520, a device with a massive 6-inch 1080P display. But besides the great display, the Lumia 1520 also features an outstanding PureView camera with a 20 MP sensor. In addition, the algorithms for the camera app have been improved for better noise reduction, tone mapping and oversampling when compared to older Lumias. We’ll have more on that shortly in our Juha Alakarhu interview.

Hands on with the Nokia Lumia 2520 keyboard case

Announced today alongside the Nokia Lumia 2520 at Nokia World 2013, is this, the companion keyboard case. Nokia didn't go down the touch-cover style route with the 2520, instead opting to produce a full tactile keyboard with gesture trackpad. It's also a case, protecting the tablet front and back, and it's got some additional juice via the on-board battery, that Nokia claims is good for an extra 5 hours battery life for the tablet. And round the back, there's not one but two USB ports.

Hands on photos of the new Nokia Lumia 1320 (now with video!)

73

The Nokia Lumia 1520 wasn't the only large screen Windows Phone announced today at Nokia World 2013. Also in Abu Dhabi is the Lumia 1320, with it too sporting a 6-inch display, it's a more affordable option to entering the supersize space compared against the 1520. As such, some of the specs are toned down to keep the price point attractive, but that doesn't mean this is a 'cheap' device, not at all.

We sit down with Nokia’s Stephen Elop

Nokia World is still going strong in Abu Dhabi and we have plenty of coverage yet to bring you today, but one of those is of high priority: Executive Vice President, Devices & Services, Stephen Elop. Of course many of you know him as the former President and CEO of Nokia (until Microsoft agreed to buy the hardware division of Nokia in early September). That change will eventually result in Elop becoming Executive Vice President at Microsoft once the deal is finalized in early 2014.

In a roundtable discussion with a select few in the media, we were able to ask Elop about today’s announcements, which included the Lumia 1320, Lumia 1520 and Lumia 2520 and new Asha devices.
