The 30 Hottest Tech Releases In September


Nokia Lumia 920

Nokia this month proved it wasn't ready to give up on the Windows Phone platform just yet, releasing its new Lumia 920 smartphone based on Microsoft's next-gen version of its struggling mobile OS.

Unveiled at a New York City launch event on Sept. 5, the new Lumia 920 runs Windows Phone 8 software, which marks the latest in a series of attempts by Nokia to compete against smartphone giants Apple and Samsung. The Lumia 920 sports several improvements compared to its predecessor the Lumia 900, including a faster 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, built-in wireless charging and support for near-field communication.

Pricing and availability details have not been given for the Lumia 920, but it's clear that the device represents the latest in a series of swings and misses by both Nokia and Microsoft to lure U.S. consumers away from the iPhone.
