    There's a story going around today about the Nokia Lumia 925, and how the T-Mobile version of the smartphone, for which we've recently been discussing launch rumors, appears to have just got the thumbs-up from the FCC. Even a cursory look at the documents, though, reveals this isn't the case. So what's wrong? Well, what we've got here is test documentation for Nokia model RM-892. That number has already been associated with the Lumia 925. But when we look at the actual test docs, they're seriously lacking: the only frequency coverage the FCC signed-off on is this model's GSM bands. While ...

    T-Mobile has just started sending out press invites to a New York City event scheduled for July 10. As you can see above, the carrier boasts that some of its "boldest moves yet" are coming... but what does that mean? Well, let's think about what T-Mobile could be planning to announce. We just saw a leaked roadmap that showed a few things happening in the days following July 10. On July 14, there's mention of a "major EIT release," and rumor has it that this could mark the beginning of the second phase of the network's "UNcarrier" plans. A little later that week, on Wednesday, July 17, that ...

    We've reviewed both the Nokia Lumia 925 and the Sony Xperia Z. They're both great devices and they're both coming to T-Mobile. Today's bit brings us a Nokia Lumia 925 and Sony Xperia Z T-Mobile release date, in the form of a leaked internal document. July 14 appears to be the date in the calendar where both of these phones are mentioned for launch day on Magenta, alongside a T-Mobile 768, most probably a low-end prepaid phone. While there's no information on pricing of the Sony Xperia Z, the report claims that the Nokia Lumia 925 will set you back $99.99, if you're a "well qualified ...

    In the food service industry, when you're a server who's been slammed with too many customers and can't keep up with the demand, you're said to be "in the weeds." On a podcast, that same expression means something quite different. It means you've wandered so far from your intended topic (in this case, mobile technology) that you've found yourself in the far-flung wilderness talking about anything but (in this case, sports cars, British accents, and the adult film industry). But while we do spend a fair amount of time in OT land on today's Pocketnow Weekly, we still manage to get some tech ...

    Nokia announced the Lumia 925 at its May 14, 2013 event in London, and the phone was brought to the stage as "the most advanced smartphone" on the market. The buzz-word of the day was aluminum; the company emphasized the advantages of using aluminum for the phone's body, granting overall better reception and antenna performance. However, the Lumia 925 is not made completely out of aluminum. The back panel, non-removable, is still made out of polycarbonate: this time, a very soft-touch version of it. Nokia also slightly tweaked the design of the Lumia 925. While one can still instantly ...

    In today's Nokia Lumia 925 vs HTC One video we're taking a close look at the two flagships, side by side. They are very similar from several perspectives: they're both made out of aluminum, polycarbonate, and glass, and they both have fancy camera names: PureView and Ultrapixel. Of course, the similarities stop there. Since one is running Windows Phone and the other one is powered by Android, the specs couldn't be any different. That's not to say that the inferior, on paper, Lumia 925, delivers less. However, each has is pros and cons when compared to the other. So check out our Nokia ...

    The Nokia Lumia 925 vs Samsung Galaxy S 4 question might have a more difficult answer than you'd think. Let's take the Nokia phone. It is, undoubtedly, the best Windows Phone money can buy at the moment. For how long? Most probably until Nokia's next Windows Phone, the rumored EOS, becomes available. It also happens to be among the best camera-phones on the market. The Samsung Galaxy S 4 needs no introduction. It is among the best three Android devices you can get today (depending on who you ask). It also happens to have one of the best cameras on a phone today. So it is just normal we did ...

    Take a look at our Nokia Lumia 925 unboxing! We've got Nokia's latest and greatest Lumia phone, the 925, in our offices, after we got some hands-on time with it at the launch event in London. The phone is made out of aluminum, at least the sides, top and bottom. The back is covered with a very soft-touch polycarbonate plastic and the front has a very good looking slab of glass that protects the screen underneath. As far as specs are concerned, you have a a 4.5-inch AMOLED screen with WXGA (1280×768) resolution and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The phone has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal ...

    We were there in London for the Nokia Lumia 925 launch event on May 14. Less than a month later the Nokia Lumia 925 becomes officially available in Germany, as the first market to get the phone. Nokia promises that other European markets, China, the U.S., and select countries worldwide will follow. The phone packs a 4.5-inch AMOLED screen with WXGA (1280x768) resolution and is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. Has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a brand new camera construction with six Carl Zeiss lens in top of a 8.7-megapixel PureView camera. There's also a 1.2-megapixel ...

    Stephen Elop, CEO of Nokia, said that there's much more to come from Nokia this year. Talking to Mobilegeeks while in Berlin, Stephen Elop reiterated his thoughts concerning the switch to Windows Phone, made on February 11, 2011: it was the right choice. The company recently unveiled the Nokia Lumia 928 for Verizon and the Nokia Lumia 925 for T-Mobile, as well as the international market. A so-called Nokia "EOS" (Elvis) Windows Phone with an alleged 41-megapixel camera is also rumored. Imaging is not the only category where Nokia excels,  though it is one of major importance with regards ...

    A couple weeks back we got the official word on the Amber update in store for Nokia Lumia handsets. Beyond just the general Windows Phone 8 GDR2 update, this release would deliver some extra Nokia-specific enhancements to the company's lineup. Nokia told us to expect the arrival of this software in July, so while we've still got weeks and weeks of waiting to go, some new images of the new software have arrived to keep our interested piqued in the meantime. We've got a new Lumia 925 here, and the owner has really put its through its paces of showing-off many of the features we're looking ...

    Last Friday we were excited about the week ahead, this week, as it contained two days circled with very promising events: Nokia's Lumia 925 event in London and Google's I/O. Both came and passed, leaving us with a phone (or two), and ecosystem improvements. Depending on your expectations and standards your excitement probably either turned into delight or disappointment. Of course we'll talk about Nokia and Google I/O reactions, since they're the most recent (and probably among the last until the next big event of the year bringing us the next iPhone), and you can tell us why you're happy ...

    It's been a pretty crazy week of news since Nokia unveiled its new Lumia 925 on Tuesday, and before we break for the weekend I'd like to briefly return to that Lumia 920-refresh to give some overdue kudos - and maybe stir up a bit of discussion. I love our community, fellow geeks, but it needs to be said: we can be a fickle bunch of puling, pompous jerks. And these past few months have borne that out, with fanboys of the Android persuasion more riled up than ever before. All across the internet, formerly complacent Samsung fans have risen up to counter the assault of suddenly emboldened ...

    Last we checked, there are 52 weeks in a year - but you wouldn't know it, given the announcement schedule of some major players in the tech space. Companies vying for the attention of fickle consumers often stack their events one right after the other in a strategic attempt to undermine competitors, sometimes hosting major announcements just days -or even hours- apart. Sometimes, it's all a tech podcast team can do to keep up. Such a thing happened this week, with Nokia preempting Google's annual I/O developer conference with an announcement of its own: the Lumia 925, a mid-cycle Windows ...

    In the mobile space, while most hardware OEMs are multi-million dollar corporations with tens of thousands of employees, only a select few are turning a profit and thriving. Even some of the most reputable brands in the industry – HTC, Motorola, LG, Huawei, etc. – are struggling to get a foothold in the smartphone realm. With major re-branding and a fresh start in 2011 and the beginning of 2012, we didn't exactly expect Nokia to recover from years of turbulence overnight. But we did hope it would impact the company … positively. Now, over one year later, the company is still slipping ...

    Well, we're about six hours past the announcement of the latest Windows Phone out of Finland, the Nokia Lumia 925, so it's about time to start armchair quarterbacking. Everyone ready? Good. Let's hit it. What do you do when your flagship Windows Phone (indeed, your only flagship phone, period) is well-received by the marketplace, but draws criticism for a few elements of its design? Well, you correct those deficiencies in the next flagship, of course. But what if you want to address those concerns sooner, while also broadening the number of carriers which offer your device? Answer: you ...

    You've seen us go hands-on with Nokia's new Lumia 925. You've seen us check out the color options available for the handset, and even how it measures-up to the Lumia 920 and 928. Our Lumia 925 coverage continues as we see how the latest Windows Phone 8 handset looks when put up against two of the heaviest hitters over on the Android side of the fence, Samsung's Galaxy S 4 and the HTC One. Obviously, the GS4 and One have the 925 out-classed from a raw silicon standpoint, but there's so much more that contributes to making a phone the phone that is than just the processor. Will the 925's ...

    Nokia's big London event didn't bring us a 41-megapixel PureView Lumia, but that doesn't mean that we didn't get to see some significant new hardware. The Lumia 925 may be more of a gradual evolution of existing models from a hardware perspective, but the new metallic design certainly marks a notable departure from the colorful, plastic handsets that have dictated the design language of Lumias thus far. Now that the complete trio of 92x devices has gone official (at least, we think that's the last of 'em) we wanted to bring together some of our editors to share our opinions on Nokia's ...

    The Nokia Lumia 925 broke cover at an announcement in London early this morning, putting the icing on a busy season of announcements from everyone's favorite Finnish phone fabricator. An intermediate update to Nokia's WP8 family, the Lumia 925 doesn't pack a mind-blowing feature set. That's no surprise given its minor numeric increase over last year's flagship, and a look at the spec sheet confirms that the new 925 shares a lot of DNA with its predecessor. We're looking at the same dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4, the same 1GB of RAM, and the same display size of 4.5" - though here it's ...

    Nokia added two new Lumias to its lineup this month, first with the announcement of the Lumia 928 for Verizon, and just now the Lumia 925. As descendants of the stalwart Lumia 920, these phones all share some basic hardware, and for this group that means packing some serious camera hardware. Still, these three aren't cookie-cutter copies of each other. Decisions Nokia's made, both in regards to hardware and software, have shaped how each of these captures the images they do. Confused? We don't blame you, and to get some straight answers about just what's going on with these three WP8 ...

    The new Lumia 925 will be offered in black and silver. Sometimes when devices are offered in different colors you only get small accents of the color. In the case of the 925, your choice of black or silver will determine the color of the soft-touch backing as well as the aluminum edges, which can be seen from the front of the device, so you'll definitely be able to tell the difference between the two. As is usually the case, silver is the color to get if you want to hide fingerprints, but the black looks stealthy and clean. Which would you choose?

    We're live in London taking a look at Nokia's newest flagship Windows Phone, the Lumia 925. The 925 is an improvement over the 920 in terms of weight and depth (in fact, it's an amazing 50 grams lighter than the 920). It features aluminum edges and a soft-touch backing. The camera is similar to what is found in the 920, so expect great low light-performance, but the addition of a sixth lens means that optical image stabilization is improved further. The display is a 4.5" AMOLED panel with 1280x768 resolution. In terms of other specs, the 925 is nearly identical to the 920 with a 1.5GHz ...

    For those of you that were wondering where Nokia plans to push the Nokia Lumia 925, well the wait and curiosity only lasted a couple of minutes. T-Mobile USA has just confirmed that they will be carrying the device in the USA, and their variant will definitely pack the LTE that take advantage of their new network. According to T-Mobile, the Nokia Lumia 925 will be their first Windows Phone 8 to pack LTE, which now sheds some light as to why the company refused to provide the functionality to the Lumia 810 recently. Sadly T-Mobile wasn't clear as to when the device will launch on the ...

    Nokia's London event is currently underway, and while the presentation finishes to allow us to film some of the hands-on coverage you're waiting for, the company has just made their new Nokia Lumia 925 official. There are a lot of design enhancements that make this phone stand apart from both the Nokia Lumia 920 that was launched six months ago, and also the Nokia Lumia 928 that will reach Verizon in the next coming weeks. For starters, the Nokia Lumia 925 is made of the Aluminum frame that we've been waiting for in the codename: catwalk leaks we've been teased for months now. This makes ...
