Scoop TechLab | Nokia Lumia 920
Nokia & Microsoft's Iphone Challenger
The Nokia 920 and Christmas 2012 herald the launch of Nokia and Microsoft's iphone challenger.
For both companies Windows 8 is a very very big deal indeed. The launch of Windows 8 has been timed to coincide with the launch of the mobile phone OS which integrates with a new music video and software "eco-system". Together the package challenges the iphone, Apple TV and iTunes simultaneously.
Scoop Techlab is very proud to launch with reviews of this device by a trio of New Zealand writers who are experienced smartphone users and can provide an insight into how this new mobile OS stacks up agains the category leader i0S.
Our reviewers for the Nokia 920 are looking at it from three distinct angles:
- Investigative Journalist Amanda Cropp (and her Family) talks about her first smartphone experience, which in her case has been a family affair.
- Public Address "Up Front" Blogger and Tweep Emma Hart (@Ghetsuhm) is examining the device as a tool for participating in social media.
- Veteran IT journalist and editor Bill Bennett (@BillBennettnz ) is considering how the device stacks up when integrated with the microsoft office productivity suite.
- Loop Recordings Music Producer Mikee Tucker (@LoopCrew) is looking at how the device integrates into the brand new Windows 8/Xbox/Music eco-system from the perspective of a licensor of digital music and video content.
