Nokia's flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 920, is now available in South Africa.
Boasting the latest advances in imaging technology, a sensitive 1280x768 touchscreen and wireless charging, the Lumia 920 brings real innovation to the competitive smartphone market.
Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) allows the camera in the Lumia 920 to take in five times more light than competing smartphones, the company claims. It also compensates for hand movement while the photo is being taken.
The Nokia Lumia 920 also comes with Nokia City Lens which - using augmented reality - overlays information about restaurants, shops, hotels and more on the surfaces of buildings, when viewed through the camera lens.
The new curved, ultra-sensitive 4.5'', PureMotion HD+ screen allows customers to use the phone while wearing gloves too.
The Lumia 920 is powered by Windows Phone 8 and has its slew of features too, such as Internet Explorer 10, Live Tiles, Skydrive cloud service, Office and Xbox Live.
The Nokia Lumia 920 will be joined by the Nokia Lumia 820 before the end of the year.
Offering the same unibody look and feel as the Lumia 920, the Lumia 820 comes with an exchangeable shell that not only makes it possible to select from a range of colours, but also to add wireless charging. Beneath the shell is room to insert a MicroSD card.
Both the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Nokia Lumia 820 will be available in red, white and black and both phones will support pentaband LTE.
The Lumia 920 will cost R7999 on prepaid and will be available from MTN and Vodacom.
