Live: Nokia is announcing new Windows Phone 8 devices
Due to some recent leaks, we expect Nokia to announce at least two phones, the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820. There isn't too much that is currently known about the handsets, although we can be pretty sure that at least one of the models will have the PureView camera technology, although with not so many pixels as in the Nokia 808 PureView.
Specs-wise, we don't expect wonders, but it's also true that Windows Phone doesn't need an impressive specs sheet in order to impress you with buttery-smooth performance. Overall, we're quite excited about the upcoming devices by Nokia, because the company has proven that it's capable of building beautiful smartphones that can easily stand out from the crowd of black bars that the market seems to be flooded with.
Stay tuned for our liveblog of the event, which will begin at 10AM ET | 9AM CT | 7AM PT | 4PM Central European Time!

Being honest I dont wanna see a company so big fall terribly,while i was growing up Nokia used to be that look-up to company so hopefully they do well this time around!

Because the launch of what is expected to be Apple's best-selling handset ever warrants no coverage at all...

So... why did Angry Birds get its own two minute plug? It didn't really fit in well with the other feature demonstrations...

Explains all the technical problems... even the computers are sick of the over exposed game.

If these camera tools are even half as good as they look, this is going to be a HUGE selling point for Nokia.

I wish they would have just gone over the entire WP 8 functions. I know it would have made for a long presentation, but really... why keep anything on the back burner at this point? Other than that, this looks great for Nokia.

My boy Ballmer just mispronounced "Nokia". Geez.....
