Nokia is finally out with its latest Windows Phone offering, the Lumia 920. The Nokia Lumia 920 is selling for Rs 36,500 In India (check latest price) and the same now carries the fate of Nokia’s mobile future. Powered by the latest Microsoft Windows Phone 8 OS, the Lumia 920 features wireless charging, full HD capabilities, a 1.5GHz processor and a 4.5″ full touchscreen.

The highlight of the Lumia 920 of course is the Optical Image Stabilization 8MP camera that reduces shake when shooting action videos, brilliant low light still photos and ability to use the touchscreen with gloves on. Nokia is leaving no stone unturned in touting the camera capabilities of the 920, however the harsh reality remains, the OS that this product ships with isn’t upto the mark yet. It lacks the customizations of Android or the apps strength of iOS. At Rs 36,500, the Lumia 920 is a bit more expensive than the iPhone 4S and somewhat close to the iPhone 5. [click to continue…]
