Nokia launched a couple new phones at Build 2014 yesterday — the flagship Lumia 930 (basically a Lumia Icon for non-US markets) and the entry-level Lumia 630. Both run Windows Phone 8.1 (also announced at Build) which includes new features like Cortana, Action Center and Start Screen improvements. Check out my hands-on video with new 4.5-inch budget ($159) handset.

The Lumia 1520 first wowed me in Abu Dhabi and my review unit arrived in late November. I’ve been using Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone ever since. Here’s my video review.

I went to Abu Dhabi for two days to attend Nokia World 2013 and got the opportunity to play with the Lumia 1520 and Lumia 1320 6-inch phones, the Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet, plus the Asha 500, 502 and 503. Check out my hands-on video above and photo galleries below.

A few weeks ago, I received an HTC Arrive review unit from the PR people at Sprint.
It’s the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 device, and it’s the only phone to ship with NoDo (the update that adds copy/paste) – my HTC Surround is jealous :)
Take a look at my unboxing video, and follow up by reading this excellent review for more tasty info.
