Only a few days left until I catch my flight with Marcel Zehner (MVP System Center Datacenter & Cloud Management) to Redmond for the Microsoft MVP Global Summit 2013. Microsoft invites all MVPs worldwide (approx 4000) for a great week of learning, sharing and networking on the Microsoft Campus. For this week I had to pack some stuff for the flight and the days we will spend and work there.
Nokia Lumia 920 – We sure I need my smartphone and I definitely can use the Pureview camera to create some great shots from Seattle and Redmond.
Microsoft Surface RT – I loaded the Surface with a lot of movies for the long flight. The Surface RT should have definitely enough battery life for watching some videos and get some writing done.
Zune HD – I already mentioned that I am a huge fan of Microsoft Hardware and I like to have a different music player to save the battery of my Lumia 920.
Zune Headphones – I am still impressed by the quality of the Zune Headphones
Today I had some time to get some new toys for my favorite Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 920.
First I got a Nokia Wireless Charging Pillow by Fatboy, which will charge my phone on my office desk.
And for my living room I got the JBL PowerUp Wireless Charging Speaker for Nokia Lumia. The PowerUp allows you to wireless charge your Lumia and to stream music to it via Bluetooth. The phone is really easy to connect with the integrated NFC solution.
I already bought the first Nokia Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 800 and the flagship the Nokia Lumia 900 this year. Now some ago Nokia released the Lumia 920 with Windows Phone 8, and after waiting for some weeks my Lumia 920 finally arrived.
Now I just own the Lumia 920 for a couple of days but I am already impressed by the hardware and of course Windows Phone 8. As a Windows Phone user of the first hour I can report that Microsoft did a great job with Windows Phone 8.
And of course with the Nokia Lumia 920 brings really nice hardware to the Windows Phone environment and I love the new camera.
Some I am happy with my Christmas gift to myself and I wish all of you a wonderful holiday.
In the past day Samsung and Nokia showed there new Windows Phone 8 phones and HTC will show the new lineup in the next days. I really excited and can’t wait to get one of the new Windows Phone 8 phones.
Nokia announced two new Windows Phone 8 phones called Nokia Lumia 820 and the new flagship device the Nokia Lumia 920. Both bring some cool new features like wireless charring and NFC. The Lumia 920 has also Nokias PureView camera technology included which looks pretty amazing.
4.3 inch screen
8 Megapixel camera
Carl Zeiss Tessar lens
8GB + 32 GB microSD
4.5 inch Pure Motion HD+ IPS LCD
8.7 Megapixel PureView camera
And there are also some great accessories which I missed for the most phones (expect the iPhone). For example the JBL PowerUp Wireless Charging Speaker is on of the great accessories which makes use of NFC and Bluetooth.
Now after using the HTC TITAN for a while I finally got my Nokia Lumia 900 here in Switzerland. My first Windows Phone was the HTC Trophy which I got back in in November 2010. One year later I got the HTC TITAN and the Nokia Lumia 800.
Now since yesterday I own the Nokia Lumia 900, and I think it is the best Windows Phone at the moment.
Some of the key features or reasons for the Lumia 900 are:
Great Nokia build quality
4.3 inch screen perfect size for me
Great display colors
Good 8 MP camera
Internet Sharing (still waiting for a update for my Lumia 800)
super fast (Like in every other Windows Phone)
excellent antenna performance (I am at some places where I get really bad signal, and other phones like the iPhone and the HTC Titan are dropping calls from time to time, my Lumia 900 gets a much better reception.)
