Nokia has confirmed that the Nokia Pro Camera application would be released to older Lumia smartphones through a software update, also known as the Amber update. The update (AMBER) will only be released to the Lumia 920, 925 and 928 smartphones, so if you have any other Lumia phone then you're out of luck.
So does that mean that the AMBER update will only be released to the 920,925,928 or just the Pro Camera App ?
The Glance Screen facility is available in a normal scratch resistant screen of Asha 501. Why is not happening in Lumia 520,620 and 720?
If the company is readt to compete in the market, why cant they adopt new features in the newly released phones? For example, when you swipe down from the top of the screen in Asha 501, we will get the connectivity shortcuts screen. On the other hand in 520Lumia, I have to downlaod a third party connectivity tool app. Anyway, Asha 501 has borrowed its design from Lumia series. Similarly, Lumia can get inspired by Meego Asha new OS. The swipe close feature is brilliant in Asha 501. If it has 1Ghz processor and minimum 512 MB RAM in the next version,it would surely be a hit in the market.
Nokia doesnt have to adopt Android, instead, they can develop the latest Asha into a classy smartphone along with developments of windows phone.
The windows phone features are perfectly fine for phones like 520,620 and 720. But, when you pay high like $735, we are getting an additional camera. I own one 520Lumia costs around 9500 INR and if i get one Canon 1100 D DSLR ( 28.000 INR), my uses are done by the same price.
If Lumias are coming up with higher prices, let them make some differences too ( other than camera). Differences like customizations. WE dont need million apps. They could have made Lumia 1020 with purview tech of 13 MP, 1080p screen, water and dust resistant.
Let's wait for that special Lumia device.

Kopi-O-Siew-Dai, 14 Jul 2013Lag what lag? No lags on my HTC One at all. Are you still living in the past?How do you know your HTC one does not lag if you do not compare it with flagship WP and IOS? When S2 came out people said it does not lag if used with custom rom. When S3 came out S3 users claim it doesn't lag and say s2 is of the past. Then Note 2 and users of it say it doesn't lag and say S3 is of the past. But when compared to other phones, note 2 does lag.They are so used to laggy phones that when the lag is reduced, they think it doesn't lag when it still does lag because they have not used smoother phones. And now they say S4 doesn't lag and that s3 is of the past. The same claim you try to make with your HTC one.
ginaChandran, 13 Jul 2013what is the size of picture sensor? APS-C?It's called sensor size and most of the point and shoot cameras has 1/2.3'' sensor size which is 0.43 inch, the bigger the sensor size tge better the picture quality. Advanced Photo System type-C (APS-C) is an image sensor format approximately equivalent in size to the Advanced Photo System "classic" size negatives. These negatives were 25.1 × 16.7 mm and had an aspect ratio 3:2. Nokia Lumia 1020 has a sensor size of 1/1.2" or 1/1.5" which is 0.83 & 0.66 inch and it's bigger than most of the point & shoot camera's sensor sizes that takes breathtaking images!
carlovincent, 13 Jul 2013Great hardware. Too bad it's not Android.too bad if its used android.
It will lag, force close, and freeze daily. Nokia can skip Android.
Nokia n bb is the most secure phone compare to android n iOS.
Because android n iOS sell codec to American intelligent
So every time they watch you guys

Marty H, 12 Jul 2013Best Android Camera system is the Galaxy NX vs this old slow dual core WP system. We have 8 co... moreok.. 8 cores and then what? still laggy? still not smooth user interface? power hungry?
Nice, if it has the full feature set (or it might be nice anyway, cause the interface is quite good).
And for those with lower end Nokias, I get it, you feel left out. But on the other hand those were never marketed as cameraphones anyways so you should not expect this kind of feature set.
Hg, 12 Jul 2013So what happens if this "latest" or "upcoming" line of Lumia product doesn... moreMS will simply invest in Nokia, that is what will happen.
Or MS will buy Nokia even (and that might be their strategy all along, but for it to be a smart investment, they first had to crash the Nokia shares to drive down the price, and then when Nokia is starting to come back, buy it and analyst will praise the deal, they would never while Nokia is down on the bottom).
MS needs a successfull mobile OS, they simply can not give up, or they will soon disappear in to oblivion.
