First Impressions

There’s no excitement in this phone, the only excitement felt are from the people who were presenting. Everyone else – they’re either on the 920 or are anticipating the 1020.


To me, the 925 felt like an improved 920 on a 720 body, with change of colors. Mind you, it’s not cheap either.


Coming in at RM 1,799 in Early August – one has to wonder who would want to buy this when there’s a 1020 coming. Those wanting to jump on the Windows phone bandwagon can also consider the 720, which itself is a very solid phone at less than half the price.

The only thing I can think of – is the phone, which is their selling point.

I’ve said this during the Pureview 808 days and I’m saying it again and again till today – Nokia should just sell the devices as a camera with OS / interface instead of a phone (with Windows) that comes with a great camera. People are more forgiving on the OS when it is market differently.

No matter how good they say the 925 is, the product is as good as a forgotten shoe. Any 925 announcement will be followed by “when is 1020 coming?”. Sell it as a camera that allows you productivity with Windows 8? 🙂 Now that might be a good point actually.
