Nokia 1020
The Nokia Lumia 1020 has a 41 megapixel camera, outrageous and unheard of! Is it a camera with a phone on? Is it a phone with a camera on?

I know I cannot hold on to my aging iPhone 4 forever, but I’m going to hang in there a few months longer. There’s always the iPhone 5 (to be replaced by the 5s or iPhone 6 come November; no one knows for sure).  The Android phone universe has the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One. And Google has just demonstrated their upcoming Moto X phone, the product of their acquisition of handset maker Motorola.  It seems to be a phone aimed at the masses – not a phone for geeks that want the latest Snapdragon processor and the sharpest display. What do I want in a phone?  For me the camera specs are paramount. Soo .. should I spring for the Nokia Lumia 1020 with its monster 41-megapixel camera? A big drawback is that it’s a Windows 8 phone.  (Interface probably OK, but still very few Windows 8 applications out there).   Time will tell.

Google’s new Moto X phone has middle-of-the-pack hardware but some innovative voice command features.
