Nokia Unveils New Lumia Model

Add another name to the increasingly long list of Nokia (NYSE: NOK  ) smartphones -- the Lumia 925, the latest iteration in the company's Windows Phone 8-powered product line. The 925 is a thinner, sleeker version of the company's 920 model. Its polycarbonate body is encased in a metal frame, making it one of the more robust offerings in the Lumia line.

In terms of features, the 925 has an 8.7-megapixel camera; a 4.5-inch, 1280x768 display; a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor; 1 GB of RAM; and 16 GB of user memory. The camera is equipped with the company's Smart Camera mode, which, in Nokia's words "offers an easy way to take 10 shots at once and then edit them afterwards with tools and effects."

The Lumia 925 will go on sale in selected European markets and China in June, followed by the U.S. and numerous other countries. It will sell for approximately 469 euros ($608) before taxes and subsidies.

    The Lumia 925 is pretty cool but it's still not the best that Nokia has to offer. The Lumia 900, 920, 925 and 928 are all leading up to something really special.

    techy46, in your opinion what is that "something really special"? And do you think it will be able to compete with the iOS/Android opposition?

    Nokia just started selling the Lumia and Window Phone 8 OS is just catching on... Nokia has some great phones and the Lumia 925 is great example of that! They’ll do fine. Everywhere you look, however, Samsung and Apple are advertising and we don't see much Nokia advertising. Nokia and Microsoft need to do an AD blitz... and start selling more phones!!!

    ctyank99, you've touched on one of the big challenges Nokia faces in its comeback attempt. And not only are its competitors wealthy, they're organized and determined too. It's not easy being an underdog.
