Nokia made the Lumia 1520 as last fall's flagship, but AT&T took out some key features. There is an alternative available that has me bumping up my rating by two full points.

Owners of high-end Lumia devices who want the latest camera apps can begin installing them from today with the latest Amber update, but some won't get Amber until the end of September.
It was no secret that Nokia was going to release the 928 for Verizon, given that we've seen billboards, magazine ads, and videos all week. The 928 won't have the rumored metal body, but xenon flash is there, along with other great features from the 920.

Today’s phones have a mindboggling array of features, but I still miss my Nokia 6110 and Sony CMD Z5.
One of the cool camera features of the Nokia Lumia 920 is optical image stabilization, and we now see the HTC One includes this technology. My weekend basketball test shows the HTC One does well with OIS too.
Nokia has unveiled its first two handsets to use Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 platform, the Lumia 820 and 920, with extended navigation, wireless charging and new camera features.
Both Nokia and Microsoft's Windows Phone platform are having a hard time gaining traction in the face of iOS and Android. Will innovative features like wireless charging be enough to give Nokia a sales boost? Probably not.
Nokia Drive, the GPS voice-guided navigation part of Nokia Maps, has been one feature that has distinguished the Lumia line from other Windows Phone devices. Nokia just updated Nokia Drive with new commute features that we will eventually see on all Windows Phones.
An update to the Nokia Belle mobile OS is now rolling out to devices, bringing with it a revamped UI, additional camera features and the promise of new life for supported handsets
One reason I pulled the trigger on my own N9 at Nokia World was the demo of the PR 1.1 update that added several new features and the Swype keyboard. The update is now rolling out to handsets.
When Nokia and Microsoft announced their future Windows Phone strategy less than 10 months ago, there was the promise of some unique features in Nokia's devices. We saw a couple of these unique features last week at Nokia World.
The Nokia N9 is a beautiful piece of hardware with a pleasant operating system. There are not many out there yet, but there are some cool functions and features to explore.
Nokia has released details of the next version of the Symbian operating system, known as Anna, that improves usability, browser speed and bring new features to Ovi maps.Previously referred to as Symbian PR2, the newest OS build is now called Anna and includes a number of changes from the previous iteration.
The company has presented three handsets at the Nokia World event in London, promising to revolutionise user experience with new features and displays
The Nokia E73 Mode may not have the latest OS, but it is a super solid slim smartphone that gets the job done and provides features even the greatest smartphones don't have. For $69.99 with T-Mobile it really is a no brainer and should do well in stores where it takes the crown as the thinnest QWERTY device at T-Mobile.
Nokia has unveiled the C5 smartphone, which has a special emphasis on messaging and social networking features.
I am not very interested in any service that can't be taken with me on my mobile phone so after seeing Sam's coverage of Google Buzz I immediately started searching for how I could use it on my smartphones. There are actually a couple of ways to interact with Buzz on your smartphones and the easiest way (for iPhone and Android owners currently) is to simply point your mobile browser to buzz.google.com. You can read about the mobile web app features on the Google Buzz for mobile site and see a table at the bottom that shows iPhone and Android have the best support with limited support (Buzz layer on Google Maps for mobile) on Nokia S60 and Windows Mobile. Unfortunately, there is no support for Buzz on RIM BlackBerry devices at this time.
I have been using Google Maps Navigation beta on my Google Nexus One and it has performed very well, especially for a free voice guided navigation client. One aspect of this solution is that you have to be connected to your wireless carrier network to use Google Maps Navigation. Nokia has a very good Ovi Maps client that works offline and online with advanced premium features such as traffic, weather, pedestrian walking mode, and voice-guided navigation. Prior to today's announcement these premium services were subscription services on most devices (some devices had lifetime licenses). Today, Nokia announced that ALL of the Ovi Maps premium services will now be FREE on Nokia smartphones. This announcement helps Nokia towards their goal of making GPS navigation as standard on smartphones as the quality cameras they have been providing on devices for years. This adds significant value to Nokia smartphones and fires another major torpedo into the sinking PND ship.
After months of waiting, the highly anticipated Nokia E72 has been released, and it comes packed with new features.
As readers here may know, I am the editor of Nokia Experts and currently have a pre-production Nokia N900 Internet Tablet to evaluate until January. This Maemo 5-powered Internet Tablet is quite an improvement over previous Nokia Internet Tablets that never seemed to take off with an integrated cellular data connection and much better native software provided by Nokia. Since this is a pre-production device and not necessarily focused on the enterprise market I have been making most of my posts about the device on my Nokia Experts site.
