Nokia Announces New Lumia 928 Smartphone for Verizon Wireless

With Nokia's award-winning PureView imaging innovation, including optical image stabilization, the Nokia Lumia 928 enables people to capture bright, blur-free photos and videos, even in low light conditions such as indoors or at night. Great looking images come easily when snapping them with the smartphone's 8.7MP camera featuring a high-quality, wide angle Carl Zeiss lens. The Nokia Lumia 928 also comes with powerful Xenon flash to freeze the moment.

In addition to amazing imaging and video capabilities, the Nokia Lumia 928 offers rich distortion-free audio capture, even in noisy conditions. Built with three high-audio-amplitude-capture (HAAC) microphones and one of the most advanced loudspeakers available for smartphones, people can record and play back the sound just like they first heard it, all the way up to 140db - the sound equivalent of an airplane taking off. These features shine when using Vyclone, a new app for Windows Phone that lets people co-create, sync and edit multiple views of a shared moment.

I'm also an Apple addict but you all sound like jealous bitches, it looks to me like a good phone and there is nothing wrong with windows 8 once you understand it and the touch mouse they made especially for it, plus if it wasn't for all the new competition, the next iPhone would be the same as the iPhone 5, now Apple have no choice but come out with the best ever!!! ( think before you speak).

Looks like Nokia is doing same mistake - repeating same outdated strategy to offer 1322- different models of their phones. Soon we will have Lumia 6110 ja no-one know whats the difference nor point having such a wide range of models. Apples example shows that you need only one model and consentrate on making that better instead of confucing everyone... Ok nokia is big in dev-countries so maybe highend, medium, low would do it.

First Van g go to hell It isn't so much the lack of a start button (since MS is now offering to create a 'non-functional' "Start" button), but the fact they couldn't decide what kind of interface to use, and ended up with two conflicting ones (touch and keyboard) which compete with each other and often produces unexpected and undesirable effects. Win 8 is a mess, pure and simple. MS needs to rethink the entire thing and decide whether they want a desktop OS or a tablet, trying to force the same OS on both was a huge mistake.
