Forum Added for the Nokia Lumia 1020

Have you ever wanted a little bit more resolving power from your cell phone’s camera? We’ve just added a forum for a device that gives you more than than your fill of megapixels. Of course, I’m talking about the Nokia Lumia 1020.

Devices in Nokia’s Lumia lineup have traditionally offered excellent camera image quality in their respective categories. But with the Lumia 1020, nearly all stops were pulled to give the device an incredible 41 megapixels of resolution. This includes adding a 1/1.5″ sensor that is slightly larger than the majority of point and shoot cameras in circulation, albeit only a paltry fraction of the size of even consumer-level M43 and APS-C cameras.

The “smartphone” internals of the Lumia 1020 are similar to most modern mid-level devices. The Windows Phone 8-powered device features a 720p AMOLED screen backed by a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, and LTE connectivity.

What are your thoughts on the 1020? Is its 10.4 mm profile going to earn itself a seat in your pocket? Do you think 41 MP is excessive for such a small sensor and lens? Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to head over to the newly created forum to get in on the discussion!

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us.
