Now it is certain that much talked about Nokia Lumia 928 will come with PureView camera and Carl Zeiss optics. URL on Nokia website and Vanity Fair magazine throws more light on it

Finally after months of speculations and leaks Nokia Lumia 928 has been confirmed and there are reports that it may be showcased to the world on 14th May during the Finnish tech giant’s much publicized press conference. For Nokia and Windows Phone 8 OS fans, the news is a great development and shows that the Windows Phone 8 was here to stay and that Nokia was relentlessly working to exploit it to catch up with leading smartphone platforms like iOS and Android.

Nokia seems to be in a revival mood and is doing exceptionally well, though some investors are still telling the CEO to “go to the hell”. Stephen Elop, the embattled company’s CEO in a shareholders meeting was told by angry investors to end the dependence of the company on a single platform and instead opt for Android. The investor told him that even road to hell was led through good intentions. But as Stephen Elop has great hopes from the platform, he is not expected to leave Windows OS and settle for Android or any other mobile operating system.

In the meantime Nokia has given hints that its next handset that it intends to showcase in its Media event is none other than Nokia Lumia 928. The ad appeared in Vanity Fair magazine and then a url on the company website gave more than enough hints about the handset that is set to be showcased by Finland based smartphone manufacturer.

Reports in media and Vanity Fair ad suggest that the handset will come with a powerful PureView camera, Carl Zeiss optics besides other top camera qualities. It will be more of a camera than a smart-phone or a smart camera with calling facilities.
