Hi all,

Yesterday I was watching the live press conference of Nokia (started at 4 p.m. our time) via live stream and like to share some impressions with you.

Nokia Lumia 920 ColorsNokia Lumia 820 Colors

 

The new Nokia Lumia looks pretty nice. Especially the Hardware seems to come with a lot of improvements but there are also some really cool software features that make it worth to think about this phone when buying a new smart phone. Let me give you a short overview of some new features:

Hardware

  • PureView Camera: Is able to capture much more light what makes pictures in a dark environment much clearer.
  • Built-in wireless chargin: Gives you a lot more freedom with your phone.
  • 2000mAh battery: The new battery gives you enough power to do all the things you like to do whenever you want.
  • New Colors: With the new Lumias you will also have the choice of new colors.

 

Software:

  • Offline Maps: More flexibility when you don't have an internet connection.
  • Nokia City Lense: Augmented Reality for everyday use, that overlays your maps with Information about restaurants, shops, etc.
  • Nokia Drive: Powers you with the Nokia experience of navigation.
  • Windows 8: The new Nokia smartphones come with Windows 8, what brings you also a lot of new features.

 

These are just the most important things to mention. If you are really interested, I propose you to watch the video of the press conference (link below) or visit the Nokia website.

At the end of the presentations there was a little surprise. Steve Balmer comes to stage. He talks about the good partnership with Nokia, the great chances for Windows 8 and the devices that come with it. This was a nice end for a good presentation.

 

For those of you that like to have more detailed Information, I just collected some links:

Here you can find the data sheets for the new Lumias:

 

So what I saw looked very good and now let's wait until the devices come out. :) Feel free to share your thoughts with others and write a comment to this post.
