Nokia is said to be working on a true PureView Windows Phone 8 handset that it plans to bring to market this, reports The Verge. Unlike the Lumia 920, which uses some degree of ‘PureView’ technology, the new handset would incorporate a super high-resolution sensor similar to the 41-megapixel 808 PureView. Sources familiar with the device say that is going by the ‘EOS’ codename internally.
Nokia is allegedly planning a line of Lumia Windows Phone handsets for 2013, with at least one device having a metallic body. A rumor suggests that at least one of the new handsets will eschew the polycarbonate in favor of aluminum, with a handset codenamed Catwalk to be both lighter and thinner than the handset it will succeed: the Lumia 920.
Early indicators seem to have Nokia's Lumia 920 giving the Finnish company a much needed sales boost, as some analysts have the 920 grabbing the number three spot among smartphones in the United States. Meanwhile, in Europe, the 920's ability to connect to more 4G LTE networks than Apple's iPhone may be helping Nokia's ability to compete in that market. The Lumia 920, which runs Microsoft's Windows Phone 8, is widely regarded as a must-win handset for Nokia, as the smartphone maker's fortunes have suffered badly in the face of stiff competition from Apple, Samsung, and others.
AT&T on Tuesday officially revealed the priced and ship dates of three Windows Phone 8-powered handsets. Nokia's flagship Lumia 920 will cost $99 on a two-year contract, which is $50 less than Nokia itself indicated just yesterday. What's more, the price of entry includes a wireless charging pad.
The Nokia Lumia 920 will allegedly be exclusive to AT&T for a six-month period. If true, this would see the carrier continuing to be the sole US source of higher-end Nokia handsets, following its exclusivity agreement for the Lumia 900 that has ran since March. AT&T representatives are also being trained through a number of training videos that have also leaked online.
AT&T has confirmed it will be offering the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Lumia 820 on its network. The carrier has lined up both handsets for a launch in November, later than previously speculated. As part of the launch, AT&T has also confirmed that both the WP8 flagship and mid-range smartphones will run on its high-speed 4G LTE network.
Nokia’s anticipated Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 Windows Phone 8 smartphones have been given official pricing and release dates in Russia, Germany and Italy so far. When the devices were launched in early September, Nokia made the surprising decision to omit details on pricing and availability. Although U.S. pricing or availability is still to come, indicative pricing and launch availability for the key North American market can be expected soon.
Neither Nokia's Lumia 920 nor Samsung's Galaxy Note II were given specific US launch dates when they were unveiled, but leaked information points to an October arrival. Unnamed sources within the carrier have confirmed to BGR that both the 920 and Note II are slated to launch on October 21. AT&T has not commented on the report.
UK combo carrier Everything Everywhere, which just launched a 4G network, has also announced via Twitter that it will be the only place in the country to get the newly announced Nokia Lumia 920 LTE handset. EE itself will launch a 4G network in four UK cities soon, having received regulatory approval to do so on Tuesday. Engineers are currently testing the 4G network.
Nokia's just-introduced Lumia 920 flagship smartphone may go on sale this November, according to sources at European telecommunications operators. At the official unveiling, Nokia didn't release official launch dates or prices, with many criticizing it for this oversight. Nokia is late to the smartphone game and is relying on a relative newcomer for its choice of operating system in the Microsoft-developed Windows Phone 8.

Apple want ads hint at future Watch faces
An Apple job listing for a dedicated clock face team may suggest future fashion-brand partnerships, possibly in time for the updated watchOS updates that are likely to be revealed at this spring's Worldwide Developer Conference. Since the introduction of watchOS 2, there has only been four new watch faces, but three of them were left over from the first release, with only one truly new one -- the co-branded HermÃ©s face exclusive to that edition. There is a rumored March 15 event, but if that takes place it will likely focus on new band options as regards the Apple Watch. http://apple.co/1O1TbTI
