Nokia pushing the Lumia 925 with magazine ads and a new video

The Nokia Lumia 925 is set to become T-Mobile’s flagship Windows Phone 8 device very soon. In fact, all signs point to July 17 as the device’s American release date. That’s great news for T-Mobile customers who require a little more hardware power than the value-priced Lumia 521 can provide.

Nokia and T-Mobile know just how much potential the Lumia 925 has to be a hit on this side of the ocean, and so they’re engaging in an advertising blitz in several popular magazines. We’ve spotted a two-page spread in the latest Rolling Stone as well as two separate advertisements in the July issue of Wired (one shown above).

To top it off, the QR code in the Rolling Stone ad leads to Nokia’s web portal for the Lumia 925. T-Mobile customers will want to head there and sign up to be notified by email when the phone shows up in stores. The page also features a number of new images and at least one new video that shows off the 925 camera’s low light abilities. Check the video and print ads out after the break!

Watch that camera shine

Nokia’s high-end Windows Phone 8 handsets have always excelled at low light photography, and the Lumia 925 is no different. That rear camera is a 8.7MP Pureview shooter with optical stabilization and short pulse, high power, dual LED lights. Those specs ad up to sharp shots, even at night.

Getting the word out


It’s no coincidence that all three magazine advertisements show the 925’s camera in use. Both two-page spreads tout the Smart Camera feature which allows users to combine photos taken in sequence into single shots.

As for the Man of Steel-themed ad, the QR code leads to Nokia’s Man of Steel web portal. Naturally, you’ll find some Lumia 925 details there as well.

Do these ads get you guys psyched for the Lumia 925?

Thanks to Ismael Torres for the Rolling Stone tip and photo!
