The new handset is codenamed "EOS" and is widely expected to be the first Windows Phone device to feature a 41-megapixel PureView camera. The media event is scheduled for Thursday, 11 July.

Nokia sent out official invitations to the New York event earlier this month but posted a teaser on its Conversations blog overnight using the tagline "41 million reasons", the same amount of megapixels in a PureView camera.

Nokia first debuted its PureView technology early last year on the 808 PureView, one of the last smartphones to run Nokia's Symbian operating system.

The PureView technology on the 808 uses what's called oversampling to combine up to seven pixels into one "pure" pixel when taking typical sized shots (5-megapixels).

Nokia says this eliminates the visual noise found on other mobile phone cameras while at the same time allowing you to zoom in up to three times without losing any detail. The company says the imaging technology on the 808 PureView took over five years to develop.

Leaked images of the rumoured Nokia EOS smartphone were published earlier this month by US site GSMArena. The photos revealed a device with a Xenon flash, OLED display, polycarbonate body, and 32GB of internal memory.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
