The Nokia Lumia 925 is available now. The new flagship Windows Phone 8 smart phone from Nokia lands in different colours at different networks and shops throughout the week, and brings with it a new camera mode and always-on clock.
Unlike previous Lumias, the 925 ditches the brightly coloured cases for a monochrome cladding. The 32GB black version is exclusively sold by Vodafone at first, while the white 16GB model is only sold by O2 for now.
3, EE, Phones4u, and Carphone Warehouse and other shops will sell the 925 later this month.
Based on the Lumia flagship the-- and a European version of the -- the 925 is the first Lumia with metal in the design. A metal band encases the polycarbonate plastic back, which can be swapped for yellow and red options.
Oh, and a wireless charging cover can be clipped onto the back instead, so you can charge your phone without plugging in a cable.
The Lumia showcases Nokia's Smart Camera mode, which captures ten images in one go, so you can quickly pick the best snap or edit out stuff from the picture. Smart Camera mode will come to all Lumia Windows Phone 8 smartphones in a forthcoming software update.
The 925 is also the first to shows the time all the time, withdisplaying a clock even when you haven't woken the phone.
The Lumia 925 is due to go on sale today, but if not Nokia says it's expected to hit shelves this week. And keep it CNET for our in-depth review of the 925, coming atcha any minute.
