Ok, I have found official source which proves that it will have bluetooth 4.0. :)
Sad but, I was misled by the official Nokia's web page. :(

yes.. its the best camera phone!! only problem is that it doesnt have looseless zooming like the 808 pureview.. but i think people wont mind... its because of its monstrous 41MP.. so im wishing to see that on lumia next year!!!

but even though 808 is the king of the camera phone lumia 920 outperformed it in low light! xenon cant handle no light properly!

and it weight just showing that it cant be broken easily! coz of the polycarbonate body--you can scratch but wont destroy the beauty, it wont be seen.. unlike plastic!!

Um, no, gravity on earth is a constant 9.33m/s. Only aerodynamics make a difference in fall times. A larger mass may make a larger impact and noise, but the rate is the same, providing other factors are equal.

Sorry, missed a /s above. Earth gravity = 9.33 m/s/s. And the aerodynamic thing of course precludes terminal velocity.

Sorry, early morning, just woke up, can't think fully yet

There are basically 3 reasons why the 920 is heavier than the competition:

1) The polycarbonate shell is very sturdy and rigid. It certainly weighs more than the shell for the HTC 8S.
2) The Li-ION battery weighs more than the LiPo technology used on the iPhone 5 and HTC 8S/X. However, the Li-ION has twice the life cycles of the LiPO, which should be noted given these devices all share sealed unibody constructions. It's expensive to change out a battery when it starts showing its age.
3) The 920 comes with an integrated wireless charging capability based on non-proprietary industry standards (+ USB 2.0 charging also). This too adds weight.

However, considering the upsides, 185g isn't a big issue for many.

It's the other way around. Lithium Ion Polycarbonate batteries last longer than ordinairy Lithium Ion.

IMO the thing is decent, all that tech crammed inside and would run in the store to buy it IF it had Jelly Bean on it :)

"Lithium Ion Polycarbonate batteries last longer than ordinairy Lithium Ion."

There is no such thing like a "Lithium Ion Polycarbonate batteries". Polycarbonate is a kind of plastic. :)

I'm not a battery designer...just a nuclear engineer. But what I've read says otherwise:

They are both Lithium Ion batteries but the Lithium Ion Polymer battery is the evolution of it. It has more advantages and is newer technology.
