with Nokia aggressively pushing out new Windows Phones, it has sort of become the go-to brand if you are looking for Windows Phone. anyway, the latest to join the Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 stable is the Nokia Lumia 925, a handset described by Nokia as the “a new interpretation of its award-winning flagship, the Nokia Lumia 920.” equipped with a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB of RAM, this new flagship from the Finnish handset maker now has metal mixed into its still largely polycarbonate construction. if you are expecting wireless charging, you’d be disappointed. natively, it doesn’t support wireless charging out of the box, but it can however, go the wireless charging route when use with an optional accessory cover. another selling point that Nokia is touting for this handset is its Carl Zeiss lens-equipped 8.7MP PureView camera with optical image stabilization and Full HD 1080p video recording (at 30 fps, also with O.I.S.) capability.

the main shooter boasts quite few tricks in its bag, such as the Action Shot that lets you capture ten images at one go, thereby creating a sequence of movements in a single high-quality image, and Remove Moving Object feature lets you erase unwanted people. other features include a 4.5″ AMOLED ClearBlack display with 1,280 x 768 resolution, yielding 334 ppi, sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass 2, a 1.2MP wide angle front-facing camera, 16GB of internal storage (no expandable storage, though), plus the usual condiments of radios, connectivity and sensors that comprises of Bluetooth and WiFi, NFC, GSM and LTE radios, A-GPS with GLONASS, ambient light and proximity sensors, accelerometer, gyroscope, as well as magnetometer. sales of the Nokia Lumia 925 Windows Phone is expected to kick off in UK, Germany, Italy, Spain and China in June, with US and other markets to follow suits. estimate going rate for this new kid on the (Windows) block would be around €469 (around US$608).
