Pictures of Nokia’s Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 Windows Phones

Earlier today, Nokia revealed its first two Windows Phone 7.5 handsets: the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710. Both will run Windows Phone 7.5, and will come with a number of exclusive Nokia apps, like turn-by-turn directions, public transit, free music streaming, and ESPN sports. Read about all of the new features and both new phones in our What You Need To Know article. Since publication of that article, Nokia sent us links to bigger pictures of the new devices. You can find them all here. We have to say, these are good-looking phones. It’s a shame that neither of them will hit the U.S. market until 2012. Quite a shame, indeed.

Samsung returns to Windows Phone, launches the Ativ SE through Verizon
Samsung Ativ SE Verizon

Samsung was rumored to be making its return to Windows Phone this month, following an early leaked image, and a possible specification, revealing the phone will match the most recent, and high-end, Nokia Lumia phones.
Updated on 04-04-2014 by Andy: Samsung and Verizon have announced the Ativ SE. All the official information has been added in below.
The Ativ SE represents the first Samsung device to make use of the new Windows Phone GDR3 hardware enhancements, meaning the phone can compete with the best Nokia currently has to offer. The phone has a 5-inch AMOLED touchscreen on the front, with a 1080p resolution, and inside the device is the trusty Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor along with 2GB of RAM.
Owners will get to fill 16GB of internal storage space, plus add in a MicroSD card up to 64GB in size. For taking pictures, you’ll find a 13-megapixel camera on the rear, and a 2-megapixel lens above the screen on the front. The Ativ SE is a Verizon exclusive, and will connect to its 4G LTE network, plus it’s listed as a “Global Ready” device to be used abroad too.
Other features include Bluetooth 3.0, a 2,600mAh battery for around 20 hours talktime, plus the ability to control your TV using an infrared sensor and Samsung’s WatchON app. The device runs Windows Phone 8, but not Windows Phone 8.1, which was revealed during Microsoft’s Build 2014 conference earlier this week. However, like all existing Windows Phone 8 hardware, the new version will be made available as an update.
The design is identical to the leaked images of the phone, complete with Verizon branding on the front, a Windows logo on the home key, and a brushed metal effect rear cover. Overall, the Ativ SE is reminiscent of the Galaxy S4. Verizon will be charging $600 for an Ativ SE without a contract, or if you sign-up for two years, it’ll cost you $200. There is also a limited time offer where if you buy one, you’ll get another phone for free, provided a second two-year contract is signed.
Verizon has the Ativ SE ready to pre-order now, and states it’ll ship by April 12. It sits alongside the Nokia Lumia Icon in Verizon’s range, a phone we called the best Windows Phone ever made, and gave it a great score in our review. Will Samsung’s return to Microsoft’s OS be equally as impressive? We’re looking forward to testing this one out.

Lumia 930 vs. Galaxy S5 vs. iPhone 5S: Nokia’s latest against Apple and Samsung

 The Keynote at Microsoft's Build 2014 event held plenty of interesting information, but didn't reveal a whole lot in terms of physical devices. Windows Phone is improving, though, and the newly announced Lumia 930 - running Windows Phone 8.1 - would like to lead a charge back to relevance for Windows Phone. It has a tough road ahead to accomplish that. Android has tons of great phones, including the new Samsung Galaxy S5, and Apple's iPhone 5S is still a favorite. How does the Lumia 930 stack up against the flagship phones of other operating systems? We take a look at the specs to find out.

Nokia Lumia 630 leaked, as rumors spread of an April launch event
Lumia 630 Leak

Nokia used Mobile World Congress to reveal the Android-powered Nokia X family of smartphones, leaving aside its signature Windows Phone hardware, presumably for another special event in the future. Two rumors have emerged this week, the first of which points to such a get-together occurring next month, and the second concerning one of the devices which may be announced.
The phone has been leaked through the @evleaks Twitter account, and is a traditional press-style glamor shot of a phone apparently named the Lumia 630. Pictured in five different colors, it’s shown running Windows Phone 8. The design is reminiscent of previous Lumia phones, but also shares the look of the Nokia X too.
While it’s the first time we’re getting such a detailed look at the Lumia 630, it has been leaked before. The phone, codename Moneypenny according to Engadget, appeared a few days ago on a Chinese site, where it was suggested the phone will have a 4.5-inch, 854 x 480 pixel screen, a Snapdragon 400 processor, and 1GB of RAM. The camera’s megapixels aren’t revealed, but the lack of flash says this is no PureView challenger.
None of the recently rumored Windows Phone devices were announced at Mobile World Congress. This is presumably due to Nokia having to wait for Microsoft to announce Windows Phone 8.1 - as all its new phones should run the new version - which it is expected to do during the Build conference on April 2.
Does that mean a late April event from Nokia? Perhaps. A tweet from the same account also hinted we may not have long to go before the Lumia 630 is officially revealed, speculating we may soon get invitations to an event to be held on April 19. The tweet was posed as a question, and has since been removed, which could mean it was based on false information. However, Nokia did reveal a few new Asha phones on April 24 last year, so it fits in with previous schedules.
