The beginning of each year witnesses the tech community in a flurry of excitement, as CES (Consumer Electronics Show) kicks off and takes you on a virtual joyride of gadgets and gizmos of the ‘highly-anticipated’ variety. 2012 started off no differently and the list of mobile handsets we were looking forward to just got bigger. Here’s the latest additions to our upcoming mobiles to look for listing.
Nokia Lumia 900
Nokia is seriously pushing their Lumia devices as far as their bank account can reach. From zany promotions to funky ad campaigns, the Finnish company has been banking heavily on their new range to get back to the No.1 spot. Nokia’s Lumia 800 may not have met with all the expectations of the eager tech consumer, but their lower priced Lumia 710 does have tremendous potential to appeal to the masses. With the recent announcement of the Lumia 900 coming to light with a few updated goodies like NFC and a 1.4GHz processor under the hood, Nokia could well be on its way up, before the second quarter is out. Hopefully, MS will introduce WP7 updates that will also help move the OS a little further along the smartphone line as well.
The Next Lumia
The Lumia 900 will feature -
- 4.3-inch AMOLED Clear-Black infused touchscreen with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution under Corning Gorilla Glass
- LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, EDGE support
- Bluetooth with A2DP, GPS with Nokia Maps, USB 2.0
- Carl Zeiss optics for an 8MP autofocus camera with Dual-LED flash and 720p video recording, 1.3MP front facing camera
- 16GB internal storage
Sony Xperia S
Leaked, since early October of 2011, the Xperia S aka the Nozomi, has been making big waves in the Android community. Touted to take on the likes of the Galaxy Nexus, the Xperia as is loaded up with features like a 1.5GHz Dual Core GHz processor and 1GB RAM to power it up and Sony’s Mobile Bravia Engine to help streamline and enhance the visual experience. It’s bound to turn a few heads. Active noise cancellation should also make your call experience a little better as well.
