Nokia Lumia 920 Unboxing Video


Nokia’s latest flagship device, the Lumia 920, has finally graced us with its prescience. While the device is a real beauty you must bear in mind that it is a heavy phone – weighing 185g, and isn’t as thin as some of the Windows Phone  competitors. That doesn’t put me off but to many it may.

Running Windows Phone 8 the Lumia 920 not only offers the latest mobile OS from Microsoft but also Nokia’s own apps such as Nokia Drive and Nokia Maps. Combined with what looks to be a stunning camera, including the PureView Technology, I suspect the 920 could be the Windows Phone with the most success. However, will the general consumer agree? Only time will tell.

You can catch our unboxing of the red variety of the Lumia 920 below and we will have a full review coming shortly.
