And so it’s begun… the wave of Fall product announcements kicked off with new phones from Nokia and Motorola.  Together with Windows, Nokia unveiled the Lumia 920 and it’s cheaper sibling, the Nokia 820. The phones will be the first with the new Windows 8 operating system. Stockholders weren’t impressed – after the announcement Nokia’s stock fell 16 percent. The Lumia is a nice little phone that just doesn’t seem to be catching on. Motorola Mobility announced its first new phones since Google acquired it last year. The three new Razr devices follow the same trends as other recently released phones – high quality camera, thin body, big clear screen. Motorola boasts battery life as the biggest selling point of its new devices. If you’ve ever used a 4G phone, you know what I’m talking about. The battery typically doesn’t last through the day with regular use. But Motorola says its new phones will last 40% longer than previous models.
