Microsoft's Joe Belfiore and Chris Shields from Nokia talk shop about the Lumia 1020, promise more
As should be after all major announcements, Microsoft's Joe Belfiore and Chris Shields from Nokia sat down at the drinking dinner table and gave reporters some pep talk on the Lumia 1020 and Windows Phone is general.
It turns out that Microsoft has been very actively involved in the creation of the Pro Camera app, and it should have, since it required some deep code diving into the WP8 dungeon that Joe Belfiore is intimately familiar with, in order to ensure the dual full-res and 5 MP PureView picture-taking ability. He also had to rewrite some more general things like the zoom limits in the gallery app, to accommodate for the giant 38 MP full-res photos, for instance.
The other interesting part is that the ever-flamboyant Chris Shields hinted, just like CEO Elop yesterday, that there's more where that came from, and promised at the end: "Yep, as amazing as this is, we still have some stuff up our sleeves. We’re not gonna sit still, " making us wonder whether the next major announcement from Nokia won't be the phablet we saw recently, or a Windows-based tablet.
