For all the gadget freaks, the wait is finally over. Nokia is holding a press conference this Thursday, January 10th and invites have already been sent.

Though it is not the only Windows Phone 8 handset but it surely is the most feature-packed of all.
The phone measures 130.3 x 70.8 x 10.7 mm and weighs 185 gms that makes it pretty bulky. The phone is thick but because of its curved edges, it fits easily into your hand and as it is carved out of a single colored polycarbonate block that gives you the advantage that the phone will not lose its color. Nokia Lumia 920 pictures, as available on many online sites, suggest it to sport glossy finish in red, white and yellow colors and on the other hand a matte finish on black, grey, and cyan models.
