Forums Added for the Lumia 920, Lumia 820, and Xperia T
Not too long ago, we brought you news of Nokia’s and Microsoft’s joint event aimed at introducing the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820, as well as giving a brief first look at what Windows Phone 8 would bring users. Now as the devices approach their launch dates, we are happy to announce that they have been given a place in our forums, along with Sony’s new Android flagship—the Xperia T.
Heralding the launch of Windows Phone 8, the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 serve as Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 launch devices. Both devices feature the speedy 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 and 1 GB of RAM, as well as HSPA+ and LTE connectivity. The flagship 920 packs a 4.5″ IPS LCD with a 1280×768 resolution, a 2000 mAh battery, 32 GB of storage, and an 8 MP camera with optical image stabilization. Its little brother, the 820, features 8 GB of storage, a 1650 mAh battery, and a 4.3″ WVGA AMOLED.
In the Android world, Sony recently announced the Xperia T. The device is the company’s late 2012 flagship Android device. The device features a powerful 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor backed by 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, and a whopping 13 MP camera. The 4.55″ LCD is also noteworthy, featuring a high 720p resolution and the proprietary BRAVIA engine. Perhaps most interestingly, the Xperia T will follow in the footsteps of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and offer on-screen Android hotkeys. While the device will come preloaded with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, an early update to 4.1 Jelly Bean is expected.
