Paul Thurrott’s thoughts on the Nokia Lumia 520

Just a quick share of Paul Thurrott’s thoughts on the Lumia 520 – In Praise of the Nokia Lumia 520

While lemming-like consumers are engorging themselves on yet another me-too iPhone release this week, I’d like to remind the more sophisticated in the audience about a better gadget buy: Nokia’s amazing Lumia 520. This inexpensive new device can be anything you want it to be: A first or second smart phone, a digital media player, a GPS, whatever. And it only costs $99, not $550 like an iPhone 5C or $300 or more for an iPod touch.

I just bought one of these as my throw-away demo phone so I could tie it to my demo account.  It was a great complimentary device to my Nokia Lumia 1020.

Maybe the Microsoft marketing team is finally putting out great ads.  I came across this one a little earlier today and am very pleased with it.  Thank you Microsoft marketing.

Nokia Lumia 920 Firmware 1308 Update

Today, you can download the latest firmware update for your Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 device.  It took about 12 minutes to download and install this update.  Then, another 12 minutes to complete the remaining steps (migrating data, etc.).  Go to Settings / Phone Update and select Check for Updates.

I’m really happy with the aggressiveness of Nokia to constantly update their apps and firmware.

Windows Phone Central discusses the updates and includes comparison photos for your review.

WP Central Forum User, Axefield, took a few comparison pictures (before update, after update, and iPhone 5).

Thanks @kimcarey for the pointer.
