the nokia's look good.. always been a fan of the lumia design (eventhough the 900 looked kinda oversized) MP's aren't everything and it looks like nokia has focused on a quality lens

mellow yellow baby gogogogogogo!

floating lens is pretty neat.

basically a micro balanced gyro for the lens to tilt on.

sony had it a few years ago on their steadycams.

I was really considering the Nokia 920 as my next phone but I can't believe they didn't put a microSD slot on there flagship phone but put one on the 820. That's a major fail on Nokia's part and as the HTC One X vs Samsung S3 has shown the lack of expandable storage is often a major deciding factor in choosing one phone over the other. Pretty disappointing.

Nokia shows it's true Scandinavian roots by allowing the screen to be used with giant gloves. :D

There are no apostrophes in plurals! "I have 1000 posts" = correct. "I have 1000 post's" = incorrect!

Great looking device with an operating system that has received critical acclaim. I wanted to try WP7 when it was released, but just couldn't pull the trigger. I hope for Microsoft's sake they release this device within the next month or so (preferable before the new Iphone), but I have a feeling they won't (no release date given today).

Looks awesome and great specs though...

Finally!

Now release it in the next couple of weeks please so i can put my GS3 on sale. Just have to decide between yellow or white :)

Also love the fact they went for a HD LCD this time instead of AMOLED.

Nokia shares fell 16%. Looks like people (investors) don't like the new lumias.

That is to be expected because everyone wants their unicorn wishes to be true at such events.

Apple stock went down during iPad and the iPhone 4S events too. Stocks barely tell the long term future of a product.

There's a certain degree to it when a stock fell. The reason behind Apple's fell during announcement day is due to profit taking. Nokia on the other hand fell sharply due to cloudy future outlook of the company.

ok Nokia 920 and 820 officially unveiled. the 920 will have a 8.7 mp camera with PureView.

Pretty solid specs for the 920:

Not filmed with a 920 http://mobilesyrup.com/2012/09/05/nokia ... ew-camera/

However, it is quite impressive tech, i'll be interested to see it in action. I like my friend Nokia 900.

I agree 100%. Really a dumb move on MS's and Nokia's part. No carrier info, no pricing, and no release date. If they are waiting for the new Iphone to be released to judge pricing, they are stupid. They know (roughly) what Apple's pricing will be. It will be premium.

I was actually seriously considering buying Nokia stock today (even with the fall). Not only because of the critical acclaim of the hardware and software, but because I think it looks good.

If they had this phone up for pre-order TODAY with the announcement, I (along with many others no doubt) would have pre-purchased. Look at the Nexus 7 for crying out loud and the pre-orders surrounding that announcement.

If they don't release this phone within the next month or so, it will fail to the Iphone upgraders and the "I'll wait for the Nexus announcement first" crowd.

Damn, these phones look good. I'm due for an upgrade next month and it's going to be difficult to pick Windows vs. Android for me.

Not difficult for me. Nokia's hardware looks amazing but without a better app catalog, it's missing too much functionality, no matter how nicely it's dressed up.
