Nokia held a preview session for Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 in Malaysia and I had the chance to experience these 2 latest Nokia smartphones running Windows Phone 8 operating system.

The new Nokia LUmia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 will be retailing for RM1,999 and RM1,599 respectively at Nokia Store nationwide starting today. While these 2 phones may arrive just in time for Christmas and New Year, the accessories such as wireless charging plate will only be available in January 2013. Anyway, local mobile operators Digi and Celcom will carry the phones while Maxis is expecting to join soon and they all will announce their pricing separately.

It’s not surprising the Nokia Lumia 920 sold out in many countries during its launch. Physically, it is a beauty with rounded edges, a smooth glass finishing and seamless polycarbonate body. It boasts a 4.5” PureMotion HD+ display with ClearBlack technology and is the world’s brightest, fastest and most sensitive touchscreen. It also comes with Nokia’s signature PureView imaging technology and Carl Zeiss optics for the ultimate smartphone camera experience. With Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and a revolutionary floating lens built in taking a clear picture and video is so easy, even in low light conditions and holding it with one hand.

    Nokia Lumia 920 is really an interesting phone to own. Love the camera so much. I tested it at Mines Shopping Center last week and I can say I’m impressed with the low light picture quality. The main problem is there are less apps in Windows Marketplace right now. They don’t even have Instagram :(
