Dutch retailer spills Nokia 910 beans
Confirmation - perhaps - for Russian mobile phone blogger Eldar Murtazin: a Dutch phone retailer has also claimed the Nokia Lumia 910 will sport a 12Mp camera and will sport a 4.3in, 480 x 800 display.
The 910 - believed to be Lumia 800 follow-on that Europe will get in place of the 900, the LTE handset Nokia will ship in the States later this year - will incorporate a 1.4GHz CPU, 21Mb/s HSPA+ connectivity and 16GB of on-board storage, and will run Windows Phone 7.5, Dutch retailer Typhone has stated.
Nokia announced the Lumia 900 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this month. It has an 8Mp camera and LTE '4G' connectivity, but in other respects its specs match those of the 910, which Nokia has yet to announce.
All eyes on Barcelona, host to next month's Mobile World Congress (MWC) show, where Nokia will undoubtedly unwrap the 128 x 69 x 12mm, 160g 910 as the Euro version of the 900. ®
I am afraid that to the majority of technically saavy users, this phone is uninteresting. Why? Windows. These days, advanced smart phones are chosen for their, in order, style (Apple/Samsung/Sony), fun (Apple/Android) these days, flexibility of hardware and software (Android), and then reliability/business (Blackberry/Windows). Why RIM and Nokia are both in trouble, especially Nokia. It just doesn't get it. Going from Symbian to Windows, against the tide, is its fatal mistake.
You say yourself Win7.5 doesn't need dual core then you go on to bash it for not having one? Make your mind up.
No it doesn't need it, it would just be a waste of power and battery life, the phone will more than likely run smoother than any Android phone even with dual core and cos of the lower spec will be cheaper as well.
Phones just aren't quite at the level of computers yet and except for the occasional game really don't need dual core. It's coming though and I agree with you that this phone is a bit of stop gap with Win8 round the corner, that's a dilemma Nokia will just have to live with.
Symbian was alas going nowhere, they needed to switch. Licensing iOS is never an option and Android they'd be an also ran. Nokia have more style than Samsung/Sony and at least on a par with Apple. Fun - they don't quite have the same amount of apps yet, but tying in with xBox and win8 on the horizon that situation will soon be reversed. Hardware flexibility, pretty locked down right now, though I don't think anyone but tech heads care too much about screen res - the current phones look fine to most eyes.
I don't think Nokia and Windows Phone can compete on every level right now, once Windows Phone 8 devices come out they will, but for now they still do enough elegantly that I think most people would enjoy one if they had it. Well, i'm eagerly awaiting this 900/910 anyway.
