Earlier today Nokia announced the Lumia 930 and we got a little hands on time with Nokia’s newest Windows Phone that will soon go on-sale. While the device resembles the Nokia Icon, this phone is destined for markets outside the US.
The phone was running Windows Phone 8.1 and, much like our Icon, ran the OS without any issues. Cortana was working well and we got to check out Microsoft’s digital assistant which we will talk about in an upcoming post.
The phone felt great in your hand and the metal chassis gives the device a bit of heft to it that provides for a premium feel. Overall, there is not much difference between this and the Lumia Icon but that’s not necessarily a bad thing either.
Seeing that this device will not be coming to AT&T, who has traditionally been the strongest strategic partner for Nokia in the US, we would hedge that they will have a new device for that carrier in the near future. With that being said, look for our hands on of the Lumia 630 in a post later today.
