So there are no hardware differences b/w Bluetooth 3 and 4?

I'm more excited for the announcement of the new Lumia X25 range. PA, any news when they are coming? Especially the 725 and 825?

6th image in the slideshow above is bogus. The focus is in different planes. It isn't a valid comparison.

The individual who took the photos must have screwed up there and someone else leaked the test images, including that one. That's in all likelihood what happened.

The point of that image is to let the phone decide where to focus and not adjust it by touching the screen. Amber 920 did the right thing.

I think the the 6th images is exactly what Lumia owners want. The problem with the lumia 920 camera is that if you get really close to the thing you're trying to "focus" at and even though you tried tapping the place where you want to focus it exactly, it often blurs up that part where you wanted it to focus and instead it would look like the outer area was focused.

I think what they are trying to fix here is that the 920 can now properly focus the way you want it. Not like what I'm experiencing now.

One thing that has never changed about Nokia is their excellent customer service! Also, I don`t think there`s any question the Amber update will upgrade the 920 to Bluetooth 4.0 standard, and owners of that model and several others will also get FM radio added. The real holdup has been Microsoft itself, but at least things are moving forward in a positive direction now...

Nice job NOKIA :o)

What I wonder is whether the old lumias will also get an update soon as the exchange support for Google is about to vanish. Wp7.8 users also need caldav support. If they don't provide that, then all the promises about customer support from Nokia or Microsoft are worthless.

Hey, I have a commodore Vic-20 that needs support too! Then again, maybe people who are hanging onto ancient technology shouldn`t expect too much...

Except that the Lumia 900 is only a year old... Not exactly 'ancient'.

A year is a long time in the world of tech; people who buy last generation technology should not expect to reap all of the rewards afforded to those willing to pay to be on the cutting edge. The 900 has a lower res display, and a few other things that prevent it from taking advantage of features designed for WP8 devices. It`s the same as with any other computer related hardware: if you don`t want to keep up, that`s your own problem...

So you're saying it's perfectly justified for manufacturers to just drop support for the device that was last year's flagship? Seriously? Isn't that like, the single biggest complaint used against low end android devices (extremely low support if any at all)?

Top end support. Nokia is rebuilding it's brand the right way.

Improvements to the 920's camera, cool

I would bet that even with the improvements, PA would probably still find something wrong with it compared to others.

Another camera related Nokia article (triple yawn)...then farts

I applaud HTC for trying and failing (Ultrapixel) because they went out of their comfort zone

Nokia should do the same

FlushBordom, I told you this before: just because you don't know the difference between shutter speed, aperature width, and focal length doesn't mean the rest of us are as *uneducated* as yourself...

Also, I hope you didn't invest in Sammy. Stock dropped waaaaaaay down ;o)
