Nokia attempts to catch-up with competitors with new windows smartphone

Nokia announced that it would be trying once again to break into the smartphone market, largely dominated by rivals Apple and Samsung, by releasing the Lumia 920 this November.  The Lumia 920 uses Microsoft Windows software and looks similar to its predecessor, the smaller Lumia 820.  The new phone will be on shelves in time for the 2012 holiday season, and sources say that it will be priced similar to Samsung’s Galaxy S3 line.
