Nokia rolls out new Lumia smartphones
Dubai, November 12, 2012
Nokia has announced the official launch of Lumia 920 and Lumia 820, its most innovative smartphones based on Windows Phone 8 in the Middle East region.
The Nokia Lumia 920 is the flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone with key features including Arabic language capabilities and the latest advances in Nokia PureView imaging innovation.
Commenting at the launch, Tom Farrell, the vice president, Nokia Middle East said: “At the beginning of last year Nokia had outlined a new smartphone strategy to deliver devices that not only surpass their predecessors, but revolutionize the industry. We are now proud to stand here and present to you the most innovative device in the history of Nokia, embodying the height of technology, design and user-experience.”
The Middle East, he said, was one of the key markets for Nokia and continues to be strongly committed to this region.
"This is testament with UAE and Saudi being among the six global markets for Nokia to introduce the new Lumia range with Arabic language capabilities with strong operator offerings and retail presence. The availability of a user interface in the local language combined with strong operator offerings are two key elements in satisfying demands of consumers from the region," noted Farrell.
"We are confident that the most innovative smartphone – the Lumia 920 will be a milestone for the company as a whole,” he stated.
"Using advanced floating lens technology, the camera in the Nokia Lumia 920 is able to take in five times more light than competing smartphones without using flash, making it possible to capture clear, bright pictures and video indoors and at night," explained Farrell.
Nokia PureView technology continues to deliver cutting-edge technology to make it possible for a smartphone camera to take the kind of images usually only seen on a standalone SLR camera.
Nokia Lumia 820, he said, was a stylish, mid-range smartphone that delivers high-end performance in a compact package.
While Lumia 820 has the same uni-body look and feel as the high-end Lumia smartphones, it comes with an exchangeable shell design. Exchangeable shells not only make it possible to select from a range of colors, but also to add wireless charging. Beneath the shell is room to insert a micro SD memory card.
The Nokia Lumia 920 comes in yellow, red, grey, white and black, while Lumia 820 comes in red, yellow, grey, cyan, purple, white and black. Both phones will be available at all leading electronic retail outlets in the country.-TradeArabia News Service
