Typical. I come out and claim there's little chance of Nokia announcing the Lumia 930 at Build 2014, and so of course guess what happens? Yup, exactly that.
Actually, technically I was right, as it was actually Microsoft that announced it, but these days that's pretty much the same thing, especially when it's former Nokia chief Stephen Elop doing the announcing.
Anyway, the point is that the Nokia Lumia 930 now lives, and takes its place in the Lumia lineup as Nokia's flagship Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone.
Physical it's all but identical to the Lumia Icon announced at MWC for Verizon, which means a 5in display, aluminium band encasing a polycarbonate back, and chunky overall dimensions of 137 x 71 x 9.8mm and a hefty 167g weight – significantly more than the Lumia 925 it effectively replaces.
The display, as you'd expect, is full HD and Nokia claims it offers a full 180-degree viewing angle and reinvents the touch-sensitive wheel with what it calls Super Sensitive Touch.
Inside is a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, assisted by 2GB of RAM and a 32GB helping of storage.
Mobile photo enthusiasts will be pleased to see the presence of Nokia's PureView camera tech, even if it's “only” in 20MP form, along with optical image stabilisation and Zeiss optics. The Nokia Camera app is on board to help you get the most from it all, though Nokia has surprisingly gone for just a 1.2MP snapper on the front. That's no major let-down, but a little curious considering how strong the main camera is.
We'd suggest that the 2420mAh battery is a little on the stingy side, but then Windows Phone is supposed to be a bit lighter on the battery than other OSes, so we'll hold off judgement for now. On the plus side, wireless charging is supported, as is 4G LTE and the latest Bluetooth 4.0 LE standard.
And, lest you need reminding, it will launch with Windows Phone 8.1 on board, which was also made official during Microsoft's Build keynote yesterday.
The Nokia Lumia 930 has been priced – before taxes and subsidies, natch – at $600 US, which works out at around £360. It'll be touching down in the UK in June.
