The phone, which comes in black or white, is available for preorder starting today from any brick-and-mortar Microsoft Store, and if you grab one from Microsoft before March 16, you’ll get a free Nokia Wireless charger.
What’s so awesome about Nokia’s latest Lumia? Besides its obvious good looks, here are some highlights:
- Killer HD video. The Lumia Icon can record 1080p video and zoom in with the touch of a finger. The phone’s ZEISS lens and optical image stabilization help deliver sharp videos even during close-ups. It also comes with four high performance microphones and Nokia Rich Recording technology, designed to help filter out distracting background noises for crystal clear audio.
- 20-megapixel camera: This new Lumia also shines with still photography, and features a 20-megapixel camera with Nokia PureView technology.
- No-squint HD screen: The Icon’s 5-inch 1080p HD display has a viewing angle of almost 180 degrees and glare-reduction technology, so you can watch your favorite shows, movies, or video clips even under sunny skies.
The Icon is also Verizon’s first Windows Phone with a speedy quad-core processor. This 2.2 GHz engine not only helps power its great photo and video feature, but makes it ideal for Xbox gaming. Another handy plus: the phone’s 2420 mAh battery supports wireless charging (charging pad sold separately).
The Lumia Icon also comes with Nokia’s latest software update, Lumia Black, as well as Nokia’s suite of highly regarded photo and video apps: Nokia Camera, Refocus, Storyteller and Video Director. That’s on top of all the high-profile imaging apps already in the Windows Phone Store, including Instagram, Vine, Vyclone, Go Pro, and Hipstamatic Oggl, just to call out a few.
