Back towards the end of last year, I wrote about my new Lumia 920 Windows Phone. After having using for an entire year I can say it was probably my favorite tech gadget of 2013. In the past year we’ve seen a couple of big updates to the Windows Phone OS, and a big uptick in popular apps coming to the WP platform such as Instagram. I know lots of people who have also been ditching their current phones for Lumia’s and have been just as happy.
The Lumia 920 is great, and Nokia has also pushed a couple other phones out there during the year as well. The 1020 with it’s big 40mp camera, and the big 1520 with an incredible screen on it. Having Windows Phone so closely tied to Windows 8 has also been valuable, especially as the owner of a Surface as well. SkyDrive integration throughout has been way more than useful, and it’s taken preference over Dropbox this year too.
I’m sure in 2014 we’ll see the iPhone 6 which will probably bring a biggerscreen size, so we’ll see what Microsoft and Nokia bring out this year as well.
