Nokia is set to announce the next-generation of its Lumia line of smartphones a press event Wednesday morning in New York.
The announcement is likely to center around the company’s first Windows Phone 8 handset(s). More than just a simple software update, Windows Phone 8 supports a number of hardware enhancements from current Windows Phone devices, including support for higher–resolution screens, microSD expansion slots and near-field communication (NFC), which can be used for mobile payments.
Nokia launched its first mobile phone — the Mobira Talkman –- in 1984. Weighing just over 11 pounds, the phone was revolutionary for its time. A little over 20 years later, in 2005, the company introduced its first multimedia smartphones, and in 2011 it introduced the Lumia line, the first Windows Phone handsets.
