Nokia ad hints at another new Lumina phone with aluminum body, super duper camera

A mysterious ad teases an aluminum bodied Lumina phone, possibly with a camera that out specs the Nokia 808's 41 megapixel super camera.

Fresh off the unveiling of the Lumia 928, it looks like Nokia may have one more surprise waiting. This past Sunday, Nokia ran this spot on British TV in anticipation of the Lumina event to be held in London on May 14.

While providing scant details, the mysterious ad shows a metal-encased Nokia Lumina phone that will deliver "more than your eyes can see." Nokia has already released images and specs of the 928, and it's not a metal encased phone. So, this is something different.

The short ad spot seems to show a bump on the back of the phone, similar to that of the Nokia 808 PureView and its camelback super camera. The 808 boasts a 41 megapixel (!) sensor with a 7728 x 4354 pixel resolution, which far out-specs the still respectable Lumina 928's 8.7 megapixel camera with a 3624 x 2448 camera resolution.

This mysterious metal phone may be the Lumina-branded incarnation of Nokia's rumored "EOS phone," which the mobile rumor mill hinted would be an aluminum-encased phone with camera specs outshining the beefy-beyond-beefy 808.

We should find out more details tomorrow after Nokia's phone event. Damn you, Nokia for getting me kinda sorta excited about a friggin'Windows phone.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
