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.

Remember your eyes will explode if you don't have a retina screen and if 1080P is required on a 5 inch screen. We should all throw out our HDTV's because the picture is just not watchable. But Microsoft will cave into this and add 1080P by the end of the year.
Windows Phone 8 will support 1080p displays by the end of the year

All that tells us is the OS will support 1080p (wtf doesn't it already?)
That does not mean, however, there will BE a Windows Phone by then that has a resolution of 1080p.
Again Microsoft's and Nokia's approach is just, and I hate this word, lackadaisical. They don't seem to care about being generations behind.
Also what's up with this phone coming to T-Mobile first. T-Mobile!!?? Even if I wanted this phone, there's just no way I would leave Verizon for that horrible small-time provider.
Just pointing that out, now go back to your cheerleading :)

Samsungs check clear for you?
They are probably like a lot of people who think its ridiculous to need 1080p on a 5 inch device. I personally don't see the need but if someone wants it Microsoft will provide it.
As another poster said most laptops dont even have 1080P and life is perfectly fine but we somehow need it for a much smaller 5" screen?
Be reasonable is 1080P on your home TV just painful to watch that you whip out your phone to watch movies?
I just read a review of the Samsung Galaxy S4 as still being laggy with 8 cores and the apps feel incomplete like they are rushing to get something specific to the device instead of refining it? How is that even possible the core OS is still laggy? I like Android OS but come on get with the basics of your OS and optimize it already its how Microsoft can challenge any device and win most of the time with dual cores because the Windows Phone OS is extrmely well optimized. Even on an 800mhz single core the Windows Phone OS is smooth as silk and here Android is supposedly much more mature and its still laggy with 8 cores?
I love the talk of somehow Windows Phone is a generation behind? How the OS is fast and slick. The Cameras on the Nokia Windows Phones are way ahead of everyone else even Google knows it and is rushing to try and get help for the Nexus 5 from Nikon. Soon Audio will be way ahead of everyone else until the exclusivity rights expire for HTC. Sorry but the Galaxy S3 is about a half generation behind the Nokia 925/928 and the Galaxy S4 might be a whole Generation behind the Nokia EOS.
Before you call me a liar about the S4 lag here is a link about the issues
