 Oh dear, Nokia couldn't keep a lid on this one, possibly because it is just too bright. Anyway, here's the Lumia 920, the new range-leading device that features a PureView camera, wireless charging and beefed-up specs to bring Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 to the masses. 

A Brighter Future?

The Nokia Lumia 920 running Windows Phone 8 has exploded across the web, just before Nokia and Microsoft officially unveil it tomorrow. Packing 32GB of storage, 1GB of RAM plus a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, it offers a modest power and specs boost over the current Lumia 900 and the rest of the line-up.

It includes a slightly larger 4.5-inch HD display that will help show more detail on this WP8 tiles, and will be available in a very vibrant red, yellow, and a moodier black plus a few other hues. The PureView camera will be an 8-megapixel unit, so pretty standard, but packed with neat software tricks for better images. Coming with wireless charging by default isn't much of a unique selling point, especially for users who are happy with their phone or tablet in a stable dock, but is a neat feature.

Learning Opportunities

Prepare for War

With such a huge September spread of launches, Nokia will likely lead with the 920 but have a range of other products on show to round out its offering in a monstrously competitive smartphone marketplace. Despite news and images on matching speakers, headphones and other gizmos, nothing has yet leaked out that puts Lumia substantially above its rivals. Still, the Lumia devices certainly look more fun than Samsung's executive-looking Windows Phone 8 ATIV model unveiled last week.

However, with the power of Microsoft alongside it, a huge free Skype minutes or SkyDrive storage offering could sweeten the deal for potential customers. And, as BlackBerry begins to fade from the enterprise, perhaps IT buyers will pick Windows devices as the logical choice?  Expect AT&T to be the first network to offer the phone which should hit stores later in the month, or perhaps October.
