I’ve been playing with the Lumia Icon since SXSW and it’s my favorite Nokia Windows Phone yet! It’s exclusive to Verizon, but it’s unlocked (if you can live without LTE) and the Lumia 930 (its foreign twin) is coming… Here’s my video review.
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.
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.
Last week I was in Barcelona, covering MWC for Engadget. I worked a lot and slept very little, but it was fun!
Above are some pictures (slide show), and below is the news I reported, with more after the break…
