PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Following reports, Nokia's own teaser campaign, and a last-minute leaked image, the Lumia 925 is official today. The Finnish smartphone maker is taking the wraps off its latest flagship Windows Phone, and there's a slight twist: it's made from aluminum. Nokia's latest smartphone is trading a full polycarbonate unibody for an aluminum casing. It's not fully metal - the rear of the device will be polycarbonate, and the front is naturally made of glass - but it marks a new shift for Nokia's Windows Phone design." This will be the Lumia that turns it all... Nevermind.

Seems like a weird choice when the polycarbonate 920 feels like a solid, premium product.

Also: "Unlike the Lumia 920, which is really quite chunky and heavy" — I really don't get this. It's heavier than other phones, yes, but that doesn't make the 920 heavy. It feels solid and well made, and if you think it's too heavy then maybe you've got some muscle atrophy you should talk to the doctor about.
