Nokia Lumia

See Lumia.


A family of smartphones from Nokia that are based on Microsoft's Windows Phone platform. Introduced in 2011, the Lumia line is a vast departure from the look and feel of iPhones and Androids, both of which caused an explosion in smartphones in the 2007-2011 time frame.

High-end Lumia models come with Nokia applications that offer free music streaming and turn-by-turn navigation. In addition, programs highlight restaurants, shops and events in the local area as well as offer suggestions for downloading new apps. See Windows Phone and PureView.

The Lumia 900
Lumia models have been well received and offer a unique look and feel. The large icons are often configured as "live tiles" that update in real time. In this example, the images cycle from the folders in the phone, while the email tile indicates there are 14 messages in the inbox.
