Brits Give Windows Phone a Chance as Market Share More Than Doubles

It's still the donkey in a three-horse smartphone race lead by iOS and Android (the ominous tent of death is going up around the lame-legged BlackBerry as we speak), but Microsoft's Windows Phone platform finally seems to be gaining ground in the UK. Read More >>

Nokia 1020 Review: At Last a Terrific Camera in a Great Phone

The Nokia 1020 represents something fairly remarkable: the nearly flawless melding of a smartphone and a camera. The assumption up until now was that while such a mash-up wasn't strictly impossible, it would surely require a laundry list of unpleasant compromises. Instead, what we've got is an entirely new kind of gadget. One that, most remarkably of all, works as advertised. Read More >>

Here's the Lumia 1020 Camera Chopped in Half for No Good Reason

If you are intrigued by the Nokia Lumia 1020's wild camera, you no doubt wonder what lies underneath the circular 41-megapixel bulge. Zeiss, the maker of the Lumia 1020's lens, did us all the kindness of slicing the teeny camera right down the middle so we could all see inside! Read More >>

Full-Resolution Lumia 1020 Sample Shots (Mostly) Live Up to the Hype

Nokia has posted some more sample images from its new half-camera, half-phone Lumia 1020. Since we weren't allowed to shoot and keep any photos of our own during yesterday's hands-on, for now we'll have to draw conclusions from these official samples. If they're at all reflective of real-world shooting conditions, we could be looking at something special. Read More >>

See a Few Photo Samples Taken by the Nokia Lumia 1020

Yesterday's completely spoiled official launch of the Lumia 1020 did indeed focus on the new Windows Phone's insane 41-Megapixel PureView camera system, which Nokia's rightly proud of. And that's a photo taken with it. And here are some more... Read More >>

Nokia's Pro Camera App Is Headed To the Lumia 920 and 925 Too

Along with the launch of Nokia's new Lumia 1020, the first proper camera-phone hybrid that seems to make sense, came an amazing piece of photographic software in the shape of Pro Camera. The good news: it's coming to other Lumias, too. Read More >>

Why You'll Love the Lumia 1020's Manual Focus

Every photo enthusiast wants more control. With smartphones, to this point we've been forced to deal with rudimentary manual controls, or sometimes no controls at all. Even when manufacturers have decided to let us fix our own aperture, shutter-speed, and ISO, focus has until now remained almost entirely out of our fingers. The most we've been able to to is touch an area of the display, and trust the auto-focus to get it right. Read More >>

Nokia Lumia 1020 Hands On: This Actually Might Be Amazing

The first question you'll have about Nokia's new Lumia 1020 is how the photos look. And yes, they're so very sharp. But what may have been overlooked is that the rest of the phone, which is still, you know, a phone, is (almost surprisingly) on point too. Read More >>

How Nokia's Radical New Zoom Tech Works

Because the Lumia 1020 shoots so many pixels on the 41MP sensor, it doesn't have to lose any actual "pixels" when it zooms in. It can go to 6x zoom by just cropping down on the original image taken (sort of like how the D4's 1080p crop mode works). Read More >>

Nokia Lumia 1020: A Great Camera in a Real Phone (Updating)

Cameras in phones are so good now. Sort of. They're good when you compare their output to the smudgy, iffy images we put up with so many years, but an S95 can still blow them out of the skies. Maybe that changes with the Nokia Lumia 1020, which we'll meet today. Read More >>

This is Apparently the Nokia Lumia 1020

Following on from the oodles of leaks and ahead of today's anticipated official launch, press shots of the rumoured Nokia Lumia 1020 have emerged. As you'd expect from a phone going big on camera performance, there's an enormous bulge around the back, plus it comes in trademark Garish Nokia Yellow, should you have the balls to try to pull that off.

Nokia Lumia 1020 Photos Spotted In the Wild Are Impressive (If Real)

A pair of photos posted to the Flickr account of Microsoft's Windows Phone manager Joe Belfiore appear to be the first real-world samples taken with the Nokia Lumia 1020.
