Ever wondered what a giant Nokia Lumia would look like? This is the closest thing you're gonna get!

Ever wondered what a giant Nokia Lumia would look like? This is the closest thing you're gonna get!

PhoneArena has been liveblogging Microsoft's Build 2013 Developer Conference and among other heart-warming happenings throughout the day – like a free Surface Pro – Microsoft had another awe-inspiring jewel tucked away, letting it be known that geeks can be cool, too!

As if from a twistedly magnificent fantasy comes a giant Nokia Lumia-esque wall comprised of exactly 200 Lumia 820, eclipsing earlier efforts by Sony and its 196 Xperia ZL grid.

In case you're wondering, the Lumia wall gets you exactly 12000x6400 pixels perfectly synchronized by a custom app built specifically for the occasion allowing a master device to communicate with the 'wall' over Wi-Fi. Among the different demos was a giant Bing Map running across 200 devices in unison and even a series of the typical Windows Phone live tiles, each representing a different app available on the WP Store.

We've struggled coming up with a name for the little marvel, so help in the comment section below will be appreciated. The Lumia TV? The Lumia 82.0-incher? Go wild!

that gives me an idea, microsoft should include an easter egg which if activated, starts a game of tetris with live tiles falling down, that would be cool

I can't believe Nokia copying what Sony have done before.

Copying is a childish word, im starting to hate how people are using it these days. its more like competing here anyway; sony did it first, nokia made it even bigger.

thing is it's not bigger. the lumia 820s used here are smaller (4.5") compared to the xzls (5"). if you compare the sizes of the active screens or even the bezels, sony's record has not been shattered yet.

hence, there's no "competing" here. it's merely copying a gimmick that was executed by somebody else better.

sony's intention when they did that stunt was to showcase the smallness of the bezels of their phone. the mosaic was made to appear as a giant xzl. with the lumias, i'm not sure what their point is.

ah, i see, youre right, it isnt bigger in surface area or screen resolution. i dont really think that nokia were trying to compete with sony, they just thought it would look cool (and it does). but nokia still wins in three areas: number of devices aaand weight of the wall (it weighs 2.4 kg more) lol and also being the first amoled wall. and the lumia wall looks more like a wall coz the live tiles look like bricks. booya

nokia's is also synced: "the Lumia wall gets you exactly 12000x6400 pixels perfectly synchronized"(para 3)
in the same paragrapgh they said thy created a giant bing map. lie and tell me that isnt cool. also it said "among the different demos" so maybe they also streamed a video

Great concept and execution.

they surpassed sony by the number of phones used but not by resolution. sony used 196 xzls which have 1280p displays for a total resolution of

406MP resolution (26,880 x 15,120)

i think no record has been broken. the xzl record remains because the xzls are 5-inchers while the lumia 820s are only 4.5". the addition of 2 lumias are not enough to break the record.
