  • Yay
  • I really hope they don't kill it with that $299 price tag. This NEEDS to be $199. Speaking of which, MS also NEEDS to move their ass and hurry up with the OS updates.
  • NEEDS.
  • :D
  • Hey Ho... Let's go!!!!!
  • Jake.
  • thank you for making it happening for the nokia fans who cant attend the event.
  • Wonder what they will be announcing?
  • I don't know, something about a camera that sends text messages.
  • Lol. Good one. :)
  • Rumor has been spreading about a bad ass camera... and are you ready for the game changer?.... it has a built in phone!!!
  • Anybody got the URL to view the live video stream?
  • Ah! Found this (from here
  • Awesome! Many thanks!!
  • it will be live streamed at :)
  • Im so excited about it>>>
  • Full specs sheet leaked! Official Image
  • Damn... it really is 32 GB and no SD slot :(
  • Yeah :\ but at least video is 1080p not 720p like the AT&T ad suggested. I wonder why they announce 720p smh
  • With all the leaks on the 920, somehow it killed the excitement for me. The 1020, however, still has swirling hype around it.
  • Damn, the live stream is too late for me. :(
    Oh well, i hope the live stream craps all over the 925's :)
  • Great!I can't wait for the moment.
  • The press conference will be start in 41 minutes. Stop teasing Nokia! hahaha
  • well, only news is when , where.... all the specs are out there, I think
  • I'm a happy man if they just announce a "fix coming really soon" for the Other Storage.
  • Would love an announcement for a kick-ass whatsapp update, but I know this won't happen :( It should though!
  • Live blog doesn't include a live video stream?
    You can watxh it live on youtube
  • hahahahha 4.1 minutes...
  • Please ban spammers on live blog
  • Finally
  • The Pureview 808 launched last year at $699, and is currently $450-500.
  • July 26th for 299.99 idk about that one
  • Well color me unimpressed. It's a 920 with a better camera. This took 8 months? 
  • Someone ask about Canada!!!
  • $299?  peace out
  • No mention of Canada.
    I hope it comes to Rogers...
  • This is impressive, but I'm not one of the wealthy enthusiasts.  I'll have to wait until my 920 is out of contract and/or the price comes down.
  • hahaha the Forbes Lady was epic :D
  • She said what everyone was thinking!  Elop handled it well though.
  • Time to dump exclusives was what she was getting at I believe...
  • Yeah probably, but I'm not from the US so I can't really judge what she said
  • So no word on any updates for the Lumia 920... a tad bit disappointed! But did simply love the innovation in 1020!
  • EASILY the best Nokia presentation I have ever seen! WELL WELL WELL done, whole crew!
    Looks like I may need to spend some money soon. I am sure my wife will be happy with a red 920. :)
    ps. and Dr. Kristina... lovely!
  • Lool at the heavy last question
  • That screen split thing was epic!
  • Wow! and now here I am with a new Lumia 920 (just upgraded from Lumia 820).  Going to save enough money again during these few months 
  • Great!!!!!! Loved the features they brought to Lumia 1020 :) :) :) :)
  • Really impressed with the phone and conference! Hoping the phone becomes available on other carriers asap. Anything but AT&T, I say
