  • "Nokia (NOK) has mostly nailed the design with the Lumia 925, but Windows Phone (MSFT) is holding it back," writes The Verge's Tom Warren while rating the phone 8.1/10. Warren likes the 925's aluminum build, performance, and low-light camera shots, but Windows Phone's app issues (not just in terms of availability, but also quality relative to similar iOS/Android apps) and missing features (reliable notifications, 1080p display support, etc.) remain a problem. Engadget's Mat Smith offers a similar take. Nokia exec Vesa Jutila admitted last month missing apps remains the "biggest complaint" of Lumia users; Microsoft is trying to address the problem by paying some developers $100K+ to build WP8 apps. [View news story]
    I don't get this argument about lacking apps, I use the nokia 822, and if there is no app, I just make a thumbnail of their website, then put it on my screen as a live tile. I did this for cnn for a few months, then now they have the app for w8, and I put that on my main screen instead. Wp8 is by far more advanced than android. I will never move back. Just need to be patient for developers to realize this...

  • "Today we are committed and satisfied with Microsoft, but anything is possible," says Nokia's (NOK +0.8%) Stephen Elop in an interview with Spain's El Pais, apparently leaving the door open to using Android down the line. Past remarks from chairman Risto Siilasmaa have already fueled speculation Nokia is open to adopting Android if Windows Phone sales underwhelm. Elop also argues Nokia's cameras, displays, and proprietary apps will allow its WP hardware to stand out from that of rivals such as HTC. [View news story]
    My 822 has an SD card as well. It is the best phone I have ever had. The map feature is also great, no need for any more GPS devices.
