The Lumia 925 will hit T-Mobile in the US and Vodafone in the UK
Nokia has officially introduced its new Lumia 925 smartphone running Windows 8. Nokia boasts about its PureView camera promising "the best" low light images and a new aluminum body.
The smartphone features the new Nokia Smart Camera mode that will be coming is an update to all Lumia Windows Phone 8 smartphones. Smart Camera offers users an easier way to capture 10 images at one time and the ability to edit the pictures with options like Best Shot, Action Shot, and Motion Focus. The camera also allows users to share photographs on various social networks all at the same time.
"We keep innovating," said Jo Harlow, executive vice president of Nokia Smart Devices. "We're advancing experiences on the Nokia Lumia portfolio whether that means great new benefits for an existing Lumia owner, or bringing new showcase devices like the Nokia Lumia 925."
Due to its metal frame, the Lumia 925 doesn’t support native wireless charging. Instead, Nokia is offering a wireless charging cover that can be clipped onto the back of the device allowing it to be used with the Nokia range of wireless charging accessories.
The phone uses a 4.5-inch AMOLED WXGA resolution display; Nokia promises that the display is easily read in sunlight and the screen can be used while wearing gloves or with fingernails. Most of the other specs of the device are rather mundane, including a 2000 mAh battery and a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. The rear camera has 8.7-megapixel resolution and features optical image stabilization. Other hardware features include a 1.2MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage.
The first network to get the device in the United States will be T-Mobile.

Android widens lead in Q1 as iPhone loses market share, Windows Phone gains ground
The latest numbers from Kantar Worldpanel found that the operating system accounted for 5.6% of sales in the United States in the first quarter of 2013, up 1.9 percentage points from the same period in 2012. Android smartphones continue to dominate the market, increasing 1.4 percentage points and accounting for 49.3% of all smartphone sales, compared to the iPhone’s market share, which fell from 44.6% in Q1 2012 to 43.7% last quarter.
Who's the biggest gainer in U.S. smartphone market share? Wrong! It's Windows Phone.
It's not just the U.S. where Windows Phone is seeing growth. It's picking up overseas as well, with a 4.1% market share. It has been doing particularly well in Europe. In the five countries covered in the report, Windows Phone had 6.5% of sales, up 2.5% from a year ago.
All this is the second piece of recent good news in mobile for Microsoft. Several days ago, a Strategy Analytics report found that Windows tablets had 7.5% of the market in the first quarter of 2013, with 3 million shipped. So Microsoft seems to be finally gaining some traction in mobile. People seem not to be locked into old habits, and appear to be willing to try something new. And that may be the best news of all for Microsoft's mobile strategy.
"So, I think the same thing of the music industry. They can't say that they're losing money, you know what I'm saying. They just probably don't have the same surplus that they had." -- Wu-Tang Clan founder RZA
