Compared with the hulking plastic Lumia 920, the 925 is rake-thin and feather-light -- 0.33 inches thick compared to the 920's 6.5-ounce bulk, and 4.9 ounces to the 920's 6.7-ounce tip-of-the-scale. If the Lumia 920 is a suit, then the Lumia 925 wants to be a tux.
Nokia is shining a light on the camera and flash of a new Lumia smartphone.
A video posted on YouTube today takes us on a tour of the phone from the camera to the lens to the flash, promising "more than your eyes can see" and telling us that "the new Nokia Lumia is coming."
So, just which model Lumia is coming?
If you're itching to snap up a budget Nokia Lumia 521, head over to Walmart on May 11 and buy it for $130, its full retail price.
If you aren't in a rush, the Windows Phone 8 handset also goes on sale May 22 at T-Mobile stores, Microsoft retail stores, and T-Mobile's Web site for $150.
However, if you don't want to fork over the full sum at once, you can also buy the budget smartphone for $30 down and pay $5 installments every month for the next two years. Either way you look at it, … Read more
Nokia's Lumia 928 is again duking it out with Samsung's Galaxy S3.
In a YouTube-posted video of a jam session in a New York subway, Nokia touts the Lumia 928's ability to record high-quality audio. Pitted against the Galaxy S3, the 928 naturally comes out on top -- a given since it's Nokia's spot. In the video, the 928 is able to deliver better sound at a high volume with no distortion, a feat that its rival couldn't match.
Although the Lumia 900 and other Windows phones of its generation hit something of a dead end in software development, Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.8 update gives them the appearance, at least, of being Windows 8 phones.
OS 7.8 installs resizable widgets that let you cram or expand more-dynamic live tiles onto the home screen at will. You'll also find an expanded color palette at your disposal, and the ability to … Read more
Nokia has something "colorful" up its sleeve for Thursday, though the company is mum on the details.

Nokia is taking the fight to Samsung and Apple in a new video posted to YouTube.
Dubbed "The Hurricane," the video follows a roller coaster going around its track as it's being filmed by Nokia's new Lumia handset, the Lumia 928, as well as by Apple's iPhone 5 and Samsung's Galaxy S3. Thanks to the handset's 8.7-megapixel PureView camera, Nokia argues, Lumia's visuals will be much better than those of its rivals when recording video.
After showing the roller coaster moving around the track, Nokia's video compares frames to those … Read more
The long-rumored Nokia Lumia 928 Windows Phone-based handset is real, and it's heading to Verizon.
Engadget on Tuesday posted an image of an ad for the Lumia 928 in the latest issue of Vanity Fair magazine. The ad shows a device being held in a person's hand as he or she captures a photo or video of a family at the beach. Verizon's logo, along with the Nokia logo, sit just above the screen.
Following Monday's teaser photo of a keyboard-equipped device, Nokia announced today its newest entry-level handset, the Asha 210.
As a member of the Asha family, which is the company's line of inexpensive phones aimed at emerging markets, the 210 will not be heading to the U.S. Rather, it will launch in Q2 in parts of Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia for about $72 (before tax and subsidies). It will come in single- and dual-SIM models as well.
