Verizon to launch new Nokia 'Icon' handset to boost Windows Phone's US market share [Asian News International]

(Asian News International Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Washington, Jan. 09 (ANI): Verizon is going to launch a new Nokia Lumia handset, called the "Icon," in the United States in a bid to boost the market share of the Windows phone.


The device looks like a smaller version of the Lumia 1520 and sports a 5-inch screen, a 20-megapixel camera, a quad-core processor, and a 2420 mAh battery, TechCrunch reports.

Although Windows Phone has seen strong success in the past year selling lower-priced handsets, the platform with a combination of Microsoft software and Nokia hardware has struggled to find market share in the United States and the upper-tiers of the maker globally.

The Verizon website has the phone pegged at 777 dollars, yet the pricing isn't clear for now. (ANI) (c) 2014 aninews.in All rights reserved. Provided by Syndigate.info, an Albawaba.com company
