Handset is launched with great expectations from Nokia, and it will be sold in partnership with Verizon in the U.S.

Earlier this year, a new handset made ​​by Nokia and runs the Windows Phone system began to be quoted by the international media. We're talking about the Lumia Icon (formerly 929), the new smartphone Lumia family and that should start to be sold in the United States on the 20th of this month, in a partnership with Verizon.

One cool feature that should be mentioned in relation to Icon is the fact that Nokia has high expectations related to new smart phone. According to what was said by President of Marketing for North American division of the company, Majid die they "want people to really remember this product."

An "environment" special ...

To achieve this goal , Nokia and Verizon have already started work to mark the smartphone market . The first step , so as you can see in the picture above , was to send the Lumia Icon for testing websites specializing in U.S. technology . However , the folder (or case , if you prefer) used for this is somewhat different.

This happens for the simple fact that we used a Pelican Storm iM2450 (check out more about it by clicking here ) . This folder is typically used by photographers working in harsh environments such as hilly areas or submerged regions , with the aim of protecting all working tool we needed to take .

As if that was not enough visual medium that military , the case has red neon highlighting the smartphone and headset ceded to the test lights . Despite being something nice , the launch of the device itself should be something between Nokia and Verizon U.S. , both the Brazilian division of the Finnish company said it had forecast it gets to Brazil .
Details that appear

Because the unit has been delivered to reviews that are made , different reviews are appearing on the Internet, as well as comparisons with other models of smart phones and also the specifications of the Lumia Icon - something that was to be expected , considering the proximity of the start of sales of the gadget .

Overall, it was explained that the novelty has a beautiful design , but hampered by battery ( of 2,420 mAH ) and 800 Snapdragon processor. Therefore, despite elegant, the Icon is somewhat broad and thick, so that some people may consider uncomfortable use.

Besides all this, the smartphone seems to have been developed with a focus on photos and images. The processor chosen offers good data processing, and the PureView 20 megapixel camera should result in quality pictures with a color fidelity well reproduced by the 5-inch OLED screen (resolution of 1080x1920 pixels, 441 ppi density and layer protective Gorilla Glass 3).
