Nokia puts up webstream for upcoming press event

Nokia puts up webstream

Nokia Lumia

 

According to an earlier report, the Nokia Phi will be thinner and larger than the previous devices in Nokia’s Lumia line-up and will feature a similar unibody design. Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin says that the display of the handset will be 4.7-inches and commenting on the AMOLED display, he goes on to state, “the screen is very nice, with no points or complaints possible against it.” The blogger goes on to mention other features of this handset as well and states that it will come with storage expansion options via a microSD card slot, NFC and LTE capabilities. The only issue he had with the device was that the battery life was not as great as the Lumia 800 or Lumia 900.

Murtazin has also provided tentative pricing of the handsets as well and has said that the flagship model would cost about $935, the second one at around $780 and the cheapest model would be priced at $650.

Microsoft had officially raised the curtain on Windows Phone 8 at an event in San Francisco earlier this year, claiming that it is the most advanced mobile OS Microsoft has ever made. Here is a look at some of the highlighted features available on Windows Phone 8:

Multi-core processor support: Windows Phone was a slick OS that ran smoothly on handsets with a single processor. The latest OS now features multi-core support with Belfoire claiming that they’re ready for whatever hardware makers dream up.
Bigger, sharper screens: Windows Phone 8 supports two new screen resolutions — 1280 x 768 and 1280 x 720, making it compatible with new handsets that will feature high-definition 720p displays.
More flexible storage: Windows Phone 8 supports removable microSD cards, so users can stuff their phone with extra photos, music, and whatever else is important and then easily move it all onto their PC.
NFC wireless sharing: In Windows Phone 8, NFC helps make sharing photos, Office docs, and contact info easier. One can achieve this by tapping their phone on another NFC-equipped device.
Internet Explorer 10: The next version of Windows Phone comes with the same web browsing engine that’s headed for Window 8 PCs and tablets. Microsoft claims that IE10 is faster and more secure, with advanced anti-phishing features like SmartScreen Filter to block dangerous websites and malware.

Better maps and directions: Windows Phone 8 builds in Nokia mapping as part of the platform. This partnership will provide more detailed maps and turn-by-turn directions in many countries, plus the ability to store maps offline on your phone so you can work with maps without a data connection.
Improved apps and games: Microsoft states that basing Windows Phone 8 on the Windows core will unleash a new wave of amazing apps and especially games.

Microsoft seems to be stepping up to take on the Apple and Google dominated smartphone market. This press event is taking place just days before the rumoured Apple press event where it may be announcing the highly anticipated iPhone 5.
