PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The Lumia 928 sports a 4.5-inch AMOLED display (PureMotion HD+), 8.7MP camera (PureView, Carl Zeiss, OIS and Xenon flash), 4G LTE connectivity, wireless charging, three HAAC microphones and a loud speaker. It's an improved Lumia 920." This is the Lumia that will turn Nokia and Windows Phone around. I'm super-serious you guys!

Finally a desirable Lumia

This is what should have been the Lumia 900. If it had been, then Nokia's smartphone division would be in a very different situation than it is today.

There are still a few (minor or major depending on your point of view) deficiencies:
* Non-removable battery.
* No microSD slot.
* No 1080p screen. Other big smartphone vendors have 1080p in their flagship devices.
* Only dual-core.
* Heavier than most 4.7" and 5" phones

These are all things that the Galaxy S4 gets right. So the Lumia 928's success will hinge on whether the camera, microphone and Nokia software add-ons sway enough users back.

It looks like quad-core 1080p Windows Phones won't come until late 2013. By then, we may see Android phones with 64-bit ARM CPUs, 4GB+ RAM and 3D displays. If Microsoft doesn't catch up, then things will again look bleak for Nokia.
