Nokia has taken the stage today to show off the new Lumia products to hopefully gain some share in the mobile marketplace. 10 years ago, Nokia was a strong name and almost everyone who owned a mobile phone used a Nokia product. Now, Nokia owns only 10 percent of the mobile phone marketplace.
Not as impressive as its big brother, Nokia has debuted its Lumia 820 with a 4.3″ screen. It ships with the new Windows 8 operating system customizable with tiles and optimized for better screen resolution. Nokia is one of many handsets said to be running the new Windows 8 operating system to stick out among others, and the sleek new look of the Lumia 820 looks amazing and sticks out in design and color.
Very similar to the Lumia 920, the Lumia 820 has a polycarbonate glossy back that comes in red, yellow or gray. The Lumia 920 has a 4.5 inch screen with 720p display while the new 820 comes with a 4.3 inch screen. The designs of the phone are absolutely gorgeous and stand out from any phone out there.
The new Lumia 820 also comes with a 5MP camera, 1.5GHz Dual-Core S4 processor, 8GB of storage and a microSD slot. It’s pretty comparable to the Lumia 920. Both the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 will feature Qi standard wireless charging and Ultrasensitive touch, which lets you use the phone while using gloves.
T-Mobile and AT&T will carry the device, but no price has been announced.
Nokia maps and the new City Lens app will be available on the phone for augmented reality to see nearby restaurants and shopping venues.
