The Nokia Lumia 928 goes on sale tomorrow at Verizon for just $99 with a two-year contract or $500 with no contract. It is a nice variant of the 920, and performs the same as that existing device.
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.
The Lumia 920 has been an AT&T exclusive for several months, but it looks like Verizon may soon get a variant of the device with even more powerful capability.
In typical Nokia style they introduced a device with some hot specifications, including a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon flash, HD quality video capture, free global Ovi Maps walk and drive navigation, and unique 5 band WCDMA support.
One of the first things people generally ask about when you mention mobile web browsers is, Does it support Flash? Today, very limited support for Flash content is provided on mobile web browsers, but the new Nokia devices do have Flash Lite support. Nokia and Adobe made a joint announcement at Mobile World Congress for the $10 million Open Source Project fund that is designed to help developers create applications and services for mobile, desktop, and consumer electronics devices using the Adobe Flash Platform. This new fund is part of the Open Screen Project, which has more than 20 industry partners.

It always seems to happen just after I buy a device that another successor is announced that has me rethinking my purchase. I recently purchased a North American Nokia N85, which I think is the best Nseries device I have ever used. Nokia announced the N86 with an 8 megapixel camera that has the same dual slider form factor as the N85, N95, and N96. The 8 megapixel camera includes Carl Zeiss optics, of course, and duel LED flash. 8GB of internal memory is provided for storing your photos and videos with an additional microSD card slot for even more memory capacity.
Adobe will roll out a full-blown version of Flash on smartphones running Windows Mobile, Android, Nokia S60/Symbian and Palm beginning in 2010. The big omission remains Apple's iPhone, which remains in a stand-off with Adobe over Flash.

In a well timed move today Adobe announced the Open Screen Project and lifted restrictions on the use of Flash related specifications. The initiative is supported by several industry leaders including ARM, Intel, LG, Motorola, Nokia, NTT DoCoMo, Qualcomm, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Toshiba, and Verizon.
Microsoft already has said it will port its Silverlight competitor to Adobe Flash to Windows Mobile phones. But it also is working on a Silverlight port to phones from cellphone market leader Nokia.
A couple of weeks ago Nokia slipped up and provided evidence that a Nokia N95 8GB device would be coming to North America. That rumor is now reality as Nokia announced the N95 8GB NAM that will support the 850/1900 MHz HSDPA wireless data network found on AT&T in the U.S. The N95 8GB offers an 8GB flash drive and a larger 2.8 inch QVGA display, compared to the 2.6 inch QVGA display of the N95 NAM model.
It has been a few months since a device was sent for evaluation through the Nokia Nseries Blogger Relations program and I was looking forward to checking out one of the new Nseries devices, a Nokia N82, N81, N95-3, N95 8GB, or N810 Internet Tablet. On Thursday I arrived home with a plain brown box on my porch from Andy Abramson and Comunicano so I couldn't wait to see what was inside. As you can see in my unboxing video below, it was a Nokia N81 8GB with a full Maroon 5 album and 2 music videos preinstalled on the 8GB flash drive. I've read several reviews that stated the build quality was not that great and people were quite disappointed in some performance aspects (web surfing, file transfer rates) of the device so I looked forward to checking it out first hand. As I'll comment on below, I don't think it is the best quality Nseries device, but if you are an audiophile or music functionality and quality is your primary criteria for a mobile device then the N81 8GB needs serious consideration. This is the BEST music playing smartphone I have ever tried and that includes the iPhone.
I keep going back to the Nokia N95 and find it a very capable smartphone, with a couple of issues (battery life and RAM) that are fixed with the Nokia N95-3. The N95-3 also adds 3G for U.S. owners (AT&T only) so it looks like a great upgrade from the N95. Nokia just announced that the N95 8GB is now shipping and should be available to consumers very soon. I was debating about getting one of these with the 8GB flash drive, but think I should get the N95-3 with the 3G support since I can easily add a 6GB microSD card for less than the price difference in the two devices.

It looks like Kevin Tofel may have stumbled upon some good news for Nokia S60 fans after seeing a strange image in his Google ads. It seems that there is a viral campaign for the Nokia N81 that leads us to believe we will see an August 29th launch date for this Nokia N91 successor. I actually still use the Nokia N91 to listen to my Yahoo! Music subscription while working in the yard and getting fit. A couple months ago Engadget posted some photos originally found (and then removed) from the Symbian Guru site that detail the N81 slider smartphone.
My Mobile Tech Roundup podcast co-host Kevin Tofel had a chance to see and play with the N800 and Skype while at the Digital Experience event a couple of weeks ago. James just posted that Nokia was quick to deliver on the promise of Skype for the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet with the newly available firmware. You can download and install the firmware now and you will find that Skype is included. There is currently no video camera support, but that may come in a future update. As you can read at Maemo.org other improvements include Adobe Flash 9 browser plug-in (take that Apple iPhone), support for Secure Digital cards up to 8 GB in capacity (now I can go get those cards I have been wanting for video) so you can potentially turn this into a device with 16 GB of storage capacity using the two SD slots, and major improvements in battery life. This update looks to make the N800 an even better mobile device.
I LOVE desktop search tools like Google Desktop and Windows Desktop Search and remember talking with Microsoft about bringing this search functionality to mobile devices. Microsoft has a integrated search tool in Windows Mobile devices, but it has never been a very strong utility. I just read the Nokia press release announcing the release of Nokia Mobile Search that brings powerful search functionality from the desktop to the device. Nokia Mobile Search allows you to search emails, text messages, calendar entries, videos, music files, and more. Nokia Mobile Search indexes your compatible device for faster search results. I could not find any information on whether external storage flash cards or hard drives, like the 4 and 8 GB drives on N91 devices, are indexed. I would think this is where the real power of device search would be as storage cards get larger and larger in capacity with more and more files being stored on them.
Those of us who are opposed to mobile carriers putting up barriers to VoIP calling can't be thrilled by Nokia's upgrade to its Nokia Flexi Intelligent Service Node (touted in the excerpt from a Flash demo, shown at top).The Node tool, which is available to carriers, is set to offer a particularly insidious software add-on known as the Nokia Peer-to-Peer Traffic Control Solution.
Have fun walking through the 3 simple steps of the "Convince-o-matic" Nokia machine. If you think you may want an E-series device then playing with this online flash machine may help you come up with some good reasons to justify the purchase.
