Unboxing and first impressions of Nokia's latest flagship Windows Phone, the Lumia 925

So everyone's excited about the Lumia 925, which has just been released by Nokia. Should you reside in the UK you'll be able to pick one up immediately from multiple sources, but if you're simply interested to see what all the fuss is about, we've got you covered. Hit past the break to see our initial hands-on action with the Lumia 925, as well as a few snaps.

The Windows Phone is a new take on the Lumia design with aluminium being utilised. The coating around the edges of the Lumia 925 is said to help with signal strength, which can never be a bad thing. Polycarbonate hasn't 100 percent left as the coloured panel on the rear is still the beloved material, which feels great to hold.

We were slightly skeptical at first, but it's clear Nokia has a superb third choice for consumers (the other two being the Lumia 920 and Lumia 928).

Here's a quick look at the new Windows Phone:

Available in black, silver and white, be sure to keep an eye on our feed for more pricing and availability in multiple markets. We'll take the Lumia 925 out for a fitting test drive and get a review up on the site shortly.  In the meantime, here are some more snaps of the high-end device:
