If you have read any of my previous blogs here on Telstra Exchange you will know that I am something of a Windows Phone fan.

Nokia Lumia 920So when the news hit yesterday  that Telstra were bringing the Nokia Lumia 920, the first Nokia smartphone that supports Telstra’s ultra-fast 4G network, it’s safe to say that I almost keeled over with excitement.

Nokia PureView iThis new Smartphone is packed with features, let’s take a quick look at a few of them.

What is wireless recharging?

Wireless recharging technology enables you to recharge your phone by simply placing it on a soap-bar like dock, ‘Fat boy’ pillow or an NFC-equipped charging stand. Still want more?

An NFC chip embedded in its base can also be used to launch an app when you place it in the dock. So, put a Nokia Lumia 920 on a dock keep it charged AND automatically open your music player (or alarm clock) all at once.

What is PureView?

Nokia PureView imaging is the latest Nokia innovation including floating lens technology.  Nokia says the camera takes in five times more light than competing smartphones without using flash so you can snap clear, bright pictures (and video) indoors and at night. It also compensates for hand movement while the photo is being taken.
