What do you think of the windows phone wedding ad?
details
This advertisement has getting a lot of play on primetime tv. If you haven't seen it you can find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z19vR1GldRI
I find it hilarious, and interesting for a few reasons
It shows pretty well no Windows Phone features. It is a straight up attack style ad. It actually shows features on other platforms that Windows phones lack. Easy NFC sharing? An assistant like Siri? You get none of that. Only 2 people at a wedding with over 100 guests have windows phones (Oh how... Read more →

What is the deal with the carrier restrictions?
details
I was seriously considering purchasing a Nokia Lumia 920 off contract and then taking it over to T-Mobile. I figured this would be nice and easy as Nokia show all the specs for the phone and state that it handles the GSM bands and HSPA+ that TMO US uses (in fact the GDGT specs page shows the AWS bands that are critical). My understanding however is that the phone itself is locked to AT&T and that it also has had the other bands removed so that it can truly only be fully utilized on the... Read more →

This is a tempting device...but I have a bunch of reservations - any good reasons why I should just go for it?
details
Currently using a HTC Titan as my daily driver (I got it for free in the smoked by windows phone promo earlier this year). I also have an iPhone 4 (it got dropped a few too many times and its power button is flaky; I'm still using it around the house for games and as a remote for my HTPC).
I'm due for an upgrade on AT&T anytime now. At $99, the Lumia is a lot of phone for the money.
Anyway - in using the HTC Titan, I'm having a lot of love/hate moments with Windows Phone. Will briefly list... Read more →

Is the Lumia 920's PureView camera the best cellphone camera ever made?
details
It's tempting to sneer at Nokia's use of the "PureView" classification to describe the imaging technology used in the new Lumia 920 phone. Afterall, most people have come to associate the term with the PureView 808 and its 41-megapixel camera. But PureView is Nokia's branding, and they're using it to describe all of their next-gen imaging technology. And based on what I saw today at Nokia's launch event, I'd say that the term applies to the camera on the Lumia 920.... Read more →

Introducing the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820, do Microsoft and Nokia have a winner?
details
Nokia took to the stage today to show the two newest members to the Lumia family.
http://media.gdgt.com/img/products/470/a2np/a2np-640.jpg
First up was the Lumia 920 which is the latest iteration of the Lumia 900. Nokia didn’t hold back on this phone, not only including their PureView camera technology but also their new display technology called PureMotion HD+ . While the Lumia 920 doesn’t have the same megapixel count as the 808 (8.7 vs 41) Nokia made it clear that PureView is not about... Read more →
