I'll at least come in Cyan.
IPS is much better than AMOLED
I think the real problem does not lie with Nokia but the fact that they cannot really do anything with the OS.
talking nervous like a little kid in front of a class...
That said, I do wish they rehearsed a little more. Oh, and I love how reserved and tepid the Vodafone guy was - terrible endorsement!
Maybe provider models will have more.
There is no way Nokia could bring 8+ WP8 devices to market if they were all used different parts.
If Nokia and Microsoft can add all these great new features 6 months, 12 months or longer into the future, its because they have a great design.
I think customers in ATT, Tmobile, and verizon should be pleased with their choice anyway.
I'm still waiting for the phablet, damn MS is too slow. From 2014 and on, they must be a lot more aggressive after getting API, SDK unified for multiple platforms.
All my other apps appear to be out of beta unless I'm missing something.
But.. if only they could make a L625. I love my L620, but it would be perfect if it had a 4 inch screen with a (much) better battery and a camera just as good as the L925.
That would be my ideal smartphone. Small + Good camera + Good battery life.
Or is it only for those carriers.
I think that I am not alone here when I say that Nokia for the past 4 years has wanted to corner the market with its camera wizardry and could have done so by implementing its 41 M.P sensor in to both the 928 and 925, and by not doing so has left a lot of Lumia fans wondering "Why?" This should and could have been so much more :(
What Windows is lacking is still apps. Not just any apps but the popular ones and the niche ones. A good panorama app similar to Apple's would be nice. I virtually hate the one from Nokia, it shouldn't be the difficult.
920 itself is good and still capturing market share and sales havent reached maturity stage yet that they unnecessarily launch a very new and different flagship and damage the sales of 920. 925 is just to give a push to lumia platform in the market and say that they are alive and making great phones and now they are lighter and slimmer. BMW implements this marketing strategy too and gives same series a 'Facelift' with new software for the iDrive and more sleek design....also called "Life Cycle Impulse (LCI)"
the idea is to revive the product life cycle which hasnt reached the decline stage yet.
