Video from Nokia leaks hitherto unseen variant

A video from Finnish phonemaker Nokia Oyj. (OMX:NOK1V) seemingly leaks news that the Lumia 920 will be available in Cyan.

We already know that the Lumia 920 -- the Lumia 900's Windows Phone 8 successor -- is coming to Verizon in a variety of colors, including a cherry red:



What was unknown/uncertain was whether there'd also be a cyan (a bluish color, for the color-challenged) variant.  That was a hot question, given that the Cyan version of the Lumia 900 has by far sold the best on AT&T, Inc. (T).

A new video seemingly leaks the answer to that query -- yes.  Here's a screen grab from 0:38 which shows a cyan Lumia against a background of yellow squares.

The current video has been "fixed" to remove the leak...


...with a yellow Lumia 920 appearing at that point.  However, numerous commenters noted the Cyan's appearance before it disappeared.

It's a fair hypothesis that the cyan version will be exclusive to AT&T, while the cherry red will be exclusive to Verizon (get it, "Big Red" gets a red Lumia 920, blue-logoed "Ma Bell" gets a cyan?).  Support for this hypothesis comes from AT&T's confirmation that it will be carrying new Windows Phone 8 handsets on Nov. 2.

Well, yeah, with WP you're talking about a performance cap based on a single-core Snapdragon. Rewind a year (when WP7 wasn't as hamstrung by hardware) and it was much faster and smoother than ostensibly faster hardware running Android.

Bad on Microsoft for not keeping up with advances on hardware, that totally is on them. As I said though, seeing WP8 running on newer hardware (FINALLY) should yield amazing results.

Right which explains why every time an iPhone launches, it's the fastest phone made to date. They must need all that horsepower to drive iOS! TakinLogic wins again!


Actually, they don't "need" all that hardware to drive iOS. An 800mhz iPhone wiping the floor with a 1.4ghz Android device is a common sight. Tighter hardware integration with the OS and better IPC from the hardware itself is why they could stretch it so much. This custom design with the A6 is another example of it.

At 1ghz the A6 won't be the fastest clocked hardware, but its still going to run circles around the latest 1.5ghz hardware in practical tests. Of course, clock speed isn't everything when determining performance, everyone on a tech site should know that. It applies to game consoles wringing more performance with less hardware due to being a more optimized and static platform, and it also applies to CPUs. The IPC differences between a higher clocked Pentium 4 and a "slower" i-7 are massive.

Again, efficiency.
