First look at the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820

Microsoft’s Ben Rudolph gives us the first look of the Nokia phones that will be launched with Windows Phone 8.

All in all, I’m seriously impressed with the new Lumias, both inside and out. Design-wise, they’re a nice evolution of the iconic design that Nokia introduced in the Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 – solid, ergonomic, and comfortable. And inside, they’ve added technology like PureView and PureMotion HD+ that offer up real, tangible benefits like smoother, faster, more responsive navigation and professional grade photos. Combined with the power of Windows Phone 8, they’re really something special.

Windows 8 launching late October

Paul Thurrott recommends viewing the BUILD 2011 keynote given by Steven Sinofsky in which Windows 8 was finally unveiled to understand the roadmap of the development and release of what is the most significant OS from Microsoft since Windows 95.
