Today we introduced Nokia Lumia 925, the newest member of the Nokia Lumia smartphone family. The beautifully crafted phone with a metal/polycarbonate body creates a unique look and feel while delivering a terrific antenna performance.
With Nokia Lumia 925 we are further strengthening the imaging capabilities first shared with Nokia Lumia 920; the 8.7 megapixel camera on Nokia Lumia 925 is packed with the most advanced lens technology, latest generation of Nokia proprietary imaging software, and optical image stabilization.

We have broadened the Lumia reach – from the Lumia 520 to the top with the new Lumia 925 – your Windows Phone opportunity continues to grow:
- The Lumia ecosystem is expanding, with more than 145,000 apps for Windows Phone now available to consumers in 190 countries worldwide.
- Operator billing is expanding rapidly, too. According to Microsoft, the average developer earns three times more in a market that supports operator billing than they do in a market that supports only credit cards. Check out this article from Microsoft’s Todd Brix.
And others have also noticed the benefits of the Windows Phone and Nokia Lumia opportunity:
- In its latest report, Kantar Worldpanel confirms that Windows Phone is the fastest-growing mobile ecosystem. And the latest statistics coming from AdDuplex, an app cross-promotion provider, confirm the strong position of Nokia Lumia in the Windows Phone ecosystem.
- More and more developers and brands are joining the ecosystem or significantly revamping their apps. Try out the latest from Facebook, Hulu Plus, Zinio, GoPro, EA, Imangi Studios (Temple Run), AlJazeera, and Vyclone.
