Lumia 920 gets autopsy performed

The Nokia Lumia 920 is easily the most anticipated Windows Phone 8 device as it hits all the marks for premium features and will come in several vibrant colors. If you have been wondering, and we know you have, what a Lumia 920 looks like when it is stripped apart, we have some good news for you.

The images you see posted here are from a Polish forum that show a Lumia 920 getting torn apart and splayed for your viewing pleasure. While new secrets were not uncovered, it is interesting to see the inside of a phone that has not been released.

Nokia is pivoting on the success of its Lumia line of Windows Phones as it needs these products to sell well within the industry to stop the cash flow bleeding the company dry, as it's currently experiencing. 

Not only does Nokia need Windows Phone 8 to sell well with consumers, but Microsoft's mobile future will be determined with Windows Phone 8. Seeing as Windows Phone 7 is now two years old and only has ~3% of the market, if Windows Phone 8 can't make serious inroads, Microsoft's mobile future could be in jeopardy.

The camera unit doesn't look that big so why is the phone so thick?

It's not thick. It's about 3mm less thin than the thinnest phones on the planet.

That's massive in terms of a mobile phone. It's 40% thicker than the iPhone 5..

ahh.... Apple marketing at it's finest.....

With so much at stake for both Nokia and Microsoft, it boggles my mind why the Lumia will be exclusive to AT&T. Way to eliminate a huge piece of potential market share right out of the gates. I switched from AT&T to Verizon earlier this year after much dissatisfaction with AT&T service (both cellular and customer service). I was sold right off the bat on the 920 because of the wireless charging, and now I feel like I have to 'settle' for the HTC 8X (I think it looks to be a great phone, I just say settle because it was not my first choice, and now is my only choice)

Money talks, and my guess is ATT is paying to have that lockdown just as they did with iPhone. I wonder if it will be mutually beneficial to both sides of the agreement... or just to ATT

There are some rumors about a 922 for Verizon. Hope it's true.

As so I. I've been an AT&T customer far too long. I tossed my iPhone 3g after being out of contract for a while waiting for a WP7.5 device to show up at Verizon. Verizon finally admitted they weren't taking any 7.5 devices live so I went ahead and picked up a Titan with AT&T I was prepared to pay to get out of my contact to pickup a Verizon Lumina 920. I'm not waiting 6 months though. I'll re-up with AT&T and get a Lumina 920. If something comes along to compel me to get a newer Windows Phone then I'll consider paying to get to Verizon again. But right now, they obviously care much more about Android than anything else. Their choice of course, but so far they haven't given me a reason to move.

If a carrier doesn't push a phone, it dies. iPhone and Galaxy S III are the only two rare exceptions from the lady few years.

Lumia...

Lumina was a model of car produced by Chevrolet.

That said I don't have an issue with all carriers getting the phones, but I can't say that Verizon is any better than any other carrier, and I used to work for Verizon CS. The quality of their customer support has gone down hill the last few years. It finally reached a point where even I was finally like, 'That's it,' and left.

I hopped over to Sprint, and then when I figured out that Sprint wasn't going to support the Arrive I bounced over to AT&T for the Lumia 900. They've been pretty good with support for the device, and when I go into the stores I rarely have any sort of interaction or knowledge issues with the reps.

Then again I only visit the corp stores.

Me too, but a rumor is exactly all it is. The only thing that has been stated officially is AT&T exclusivity.

"This is a reminder that you are scheduled for the October King of Prussia, PA 5:00 PM training session. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your session start time in order to register and obtain your demo device.

We look forward to seeing you!

Hoping to score one of these!

Having huge doubts that MS's mobile OS or Windows 8 are going to help Nokia. Nothing really killer in the OS so no real reason to buy it, especially when things like Smartglass will be on ios and android.

There is also nothing better in other OS's. So far I've found WP7 is easier to use, in what I like to call "The Mother" test. My mom hated her Android phones (went through 3-4) in comparison, and within a week of owning the HTC Trophy she has never looked back.

Spend some time on a Windows Phone. The Experience is so much better than iOS and Android it is kind of unbelievable. With WP8 they should be closing the feature gap and with Windows 8 applications being so easily ported to WP8 you're sure to see the popular applications and games on the platform.

P.S. Smartglass is so far down on the bullet point list for reasons to run W8/WP8 it's kind of sad you brought that up. Top of that list is Live Tiles -> Hubs.

Android never passes the mom test. When mine asked for advice on a smartphone to use with her new car's head unit, I panicked at visions of endless phone calls for 'technical support'. So I told her to get an iPhone (1. Sprint, so whatcha gonna do, and 2. Vehicles all have WP on their 'roadmap' but none actually support it yet).

She digs it plenty, but--like many moms--just plain isn't into the app craze.

Where Windows Phone has a lot of opportunity is the fact that 'ecosystem tie-down' isn't as universal as many people think. Especially true for middle-aged and older folks, jumping between platforms simply isn't a big deal because they primarily use the system applications.

Nokia has one killer feature in the 920 that makes it a MUST HAVE for anyone who lives in Canada.
I can use it with Gloves ON.

Yup. This feature has been virtually ignored by every overview of the device. It doesn't help that so many reviewers are in California.

When it was described on TWiT, there were even chuckles about how it's for people in Maine or something.

Yes, California, most of the world has four seasons.

As most people outside the US don't use Apple much.... No... really..

maybe, but then again android is terrible and iOS is one device restricted.

iPhone and iPad is very common in Sweden. iPhone is synonumous with smartphone and iPad with a tablet. Your statement is completely false and the real truth is sad.
However, Android is very common too.
People say iPad when they talk in generic terms when they should use the word tablet or similar.
