Nokia Lumia 920 Developer Edition, exclusive to developers supports most carriers


Developers who attended Microsoft's BUILD 2012 were presented with an exclusive Nokia Lumia 920 Developer Edition handset. Nokia refers to it as a one of a kind device that “they will never make again” as it features the ability to connect to a number of different carriers around the world.

Just like the regular Nokia Lumia 920 the device will feature the same 4.5 inch HD touch display, up to 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded through microSD, an 8 megapixel PureView camera capable of 1080p HD video capture, a secondary camera for video calls and is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. However it wasn't made available in multiple colors and is only available in Black.


It looks to support the following bands:
  • GSM – 850 / 900  / 1800 / 1900 MHz (quad-band)
  • WCDMA – 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 MHz
  • LTE – 700 / 850 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 MHz


Sadly not all developers want to hold onto this unique and device as one has made its way to eBay, selling for a whopping $1,199 All I can say is I wish Nokia had more of these handsets to hand out.

HTC working on a 10 inch tablet with a unique design



A recent leak has revealed that HTC is working on a new 10 inch tablet. The device is expected to be revealed during the IFA conference in Berlin and something special to offer its adopters – A unique form factor.

Several Android manufacturers have been coming under fire from Apple for copying Apple’s so called ‘patented’ designs. HTC has decided make some changes in their design.

Firstly there is almost no bezel along three sides of the tablet, while the forth side, the bottom has ample room. The camera is placed right in the middle of the lower bezel and we assume HTC felt that it would stay clear of the thumb this way. The other thing we noticed is that the device strangely resembles Apple’s iMac lineup.

Take a look at some of the pictures of this device below and let us know what you think



There is no news on what this device will be called, but we hope that we will get to see more of this device in the coming days.

Nokia to unveil Nokia Lumia 910 and Lumia 920 on September 5 ?


One of the company’s which has the most to gain from the success of Windows Phone is Nokia. So its no surprise that the mobile manufacturer will be first in line to reveal Windows Phone 8 devices.

A recent report suggests that the finish company will have two Windows Phone 8 devices ready by Nokia World on September 5 – The Nokia Lumia 910 and the Nokia Lumia 920.

The Lumia 920 was previously leaked through Nokia’s RDA labs, but the Lumia 910 is not a name we have come across yet. We assume that the devices will follow the successful design of the based on the choice of the name, but we wont know for sure until Nokia reveals what they have been working on.

Meanwhile Microsoft has still to share more information on the latest version of their mobile platform, which they are silently working on since they first revealed the operating system back in June.

With Samsung, HTC and Huawei all working on Windows Phone 8 devices, we will hopefully have a nice lineup to choose from when the operating system is made available to the public.
