I am not a fan of Microsoft on smartphones. I am more of a Samsung aficionado, my Galaxy Note II is simply the most useful device I have ever owned, and I will give it up only when it is prised from my cold dead hands…
However, is Nokia on to a winner here?
They have spent the last few years watching open mouthed as Apple and Samsung carved up their market dominance and walked off with it. I thought the Nokia tie up with Microsoft was a mistake, but what do I know?
I have just seen a couple of reviews of the new Lumia 1020, with a 41 megapixel camera sensor, and I am blown away.
Yep, 41 megapixels.
I don’t think this is an Apple beater, but, given how popular smartphone photography has become, I do think it is a Nokia saver.
Now, a Galaxy Note, with this resolution and optical zoom, would cement my love affair with Samsung for life. Be a bit bulky tho.
Sam Duncan suggested we have a look at this site for smartphone news. Good call.
For an overview of just how comprehensively Nokia have managed to trash their market lead I have read nothing better than this.
