Watch Nokia Lumia 920 sized up with the iPhone 5, demoed with accessories, and operated with a spoon
The Lumia 920 mid-November availability and EUR 599 ($772) pricing in Europe have just been revealed, but leaks about the yet-unreleased handset aren't stopping.

Today we've got a video where the Lumia 920 is sized up with the thin Apple iPhone 5, another demonstration where it gets shown together with the colorful accessories built for it, and last, but not least, a test of that gloves-on touchscreen that can be operated with anything, it seems, even cutlery.

Hopefully the Lumia 920 SIM-free pricing will translate from EUR 600 in Europe to around $600 in the US, as usual these things go, if history is any indication, and much less with carrier subsidies, of course.

Hope Nokia with its innovative technology will try android sooner than later. They are better than Samsung in almost everything except for processor

Why do people need everything on Android? Duopoly/monopoly is not good.

Sure, but it will be much better if Nokia have phones for both WP and Android.

yes. but it will require budgets. it will divide the attention of nokia's software division. make them vulnerable to patent attacks. etc. instead if nokia makes a dual boot phone with main attention on WP and android as a secondary OS

Dual boot is not a good idea!

android will only ruin nokia. if i can't have WP8, i'd rather have Blackberry OS on it than crappy android.

Hmmm yeah I agree but its better than the iPhone 5 which has touch responsiveness issues and it can't even register finger touches properly courtesy shabby in-cell touch panel and buggy iOS 6 :)

Except that the iP5 is available now, as opposed to some time in the future for the L920. People who are wanting to buy a new Toy want to buy it now, not at some unknown time in the future.

It's much better than releasing an incomplete set and using 'Reality Distortion', agree with me, right? And anyway what we see in the vids aren't CG renders, it's the actual working piece of hardware.

"...it's the actual working piece of hardware."

Except no one can buy it. If you can't buy it, it effectively doesn't exist. If it doesn't exist, it is basically a fairy tale.

You know, I was thinking that about your earlier reply.

"If you can't buy it, it effectively doesn't exist. If it doesn't exist, it is basically a fairy tale."

What? I like how you try to present that as logic, but it's not logical at all. It doesn't exist, that's why people are using it in the videos above.

Lets try going back to the first premise that you quoted - If you can't buy it, it effectively doesn't exist. Can you buy the L920 anywhere?

The truth will set you free....

Cool, ive missed having a phone that makes calls in my pocket and does god knows what in your pocket/bag when your walking around!!!!

I think ill stick to phones which just respond to my finger.

I think you have some point, since the phones screen responds to the lightest touch, will it mean that while the phone is in my pocket and received a call, the phone will self answer or reject it? and maybe more touches will lead to more stuff? like opening menus, calling people randomly, launching apps...etc. I believe the probability is there.
