Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) has clearly adopted its life-long strategy of developing smartphones that are tailored for a particular market segment to push Lumia smartphones forward. The company already has ultra-cheap Lumia devices as well as rather advanced handsets with unique capabilities. While the company yet has to catch up with highly-popular models from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Samsung, there is a market it may address first: hybrid devices known as phablets.

You know those gorgeous pictures you’ve taken with your smartphone? Well, they’re lousy. Yes, I exaggerate, but only a little. Snapshots may look excellent on the phone’s screen or when posted on Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB). But try zooming in for a close-up or enlarging a favorite scene, and the once-sharp images start looking as granular as Carson Beach. Unless you’ve just scored the latest device from embattled Finnish phone maker Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) Its new Lumia 1020 packs a remarkable 41-megapixel camera that sticks out from the back of the device like a miniature hockey puck. But photography buffs won’t mind the odd shape; in exchange they’ll get the sharpest and most sophisticated camera ever built into a phone.

The Finnish mobile manufacturer’s ‘YouTube Upload’ is now available in Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Windows Phone store. The new app facilitates recording and selection of videos for posting at the popular video-sharing site. It also makes it possible for users to directly post files from the Photos app and to trim those photographs using the Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) Video Trimmer app before posting.

(NASDAQ:AAPL) and Samsung Electronics Co., struck a deal to get Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) Wireless to sell its new smartphone, said two people familiar with the plan. The largest U.S. wireless carrier is set to unveil a plan next month to offer Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK)’s Lumia 928, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the deal hasn’t been made public. The phone has a metal body, 4.5-inch touch screen, 8- megapixel camera and wireless charging, said one of the people. It runs on Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Windows software like other Lumias.
