The Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 are powered by Windows Phone 8. Do they live up to the hype?
A week after Samsung introduced the first Windows Phone 8 handset, Nokia has taken the wraps off two new devices of its own: The Lumia 920 and the Lumia 820. Both handsets will come equipped with Microsoft's latest mobile operating system, and both handsets will boast a powerful 1.5GHz Dual Core Snapdragon S4 processor. But the Lumia 820, with its less-glitzy camera and display, is a device for budget-minded shoppers.
The Lumia 920 is the real prize – a full-featured phone for die-hard phone geeks. Unlike the 820, the 920 will be equipped with a 8.7-megapixel camera with Nokia PureView advanced optical imaging stabilization and Carl Zeiss optics; also check out the 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera and 4.5-inch HD screen, complete with so-called "ClearBlack" technology, which Nokia claims makes the display easier to see in bright sunlight.
So is the 920 as good as it sounds? Well, PC World's Amber Bouman got an early hands-on with the device, and she, for one, is smitten.
