Nokia Lumia 820, AKA Nokia Arrow, photos leaked

Nokia Lumia 820 (Arrow)

It seems like just as you buy your new smartphone, you hear that an even better one is just being released soon. This might be the case here today, as photos of the Nokia Arrow (Nokia Lumia 820) are released from a Chinese website. However, one of the funny things about these images are that, on the bottom right corner it claims the phone only has 335 MB of RAM. This is probably due to it being a prototype, we hope. One thing we do know though, is that it will most likely be running Windows 8 (shock).

Xiaomi

Chinese online sources claim that Xiaomi might be releasing its successful phones in Europe as early as Q1 2013. The real question behind this statement is whether Xiaomi has the capabilities to expand its market in a completely uncharted area. Just to start off, Xiaomi will have to invest a lot of money in advertisement in Europe as not a lot of people are familiar with the brand. Finally, the funny part about this story is that Xiaomi has about 1.3 billion people in china to sell to, but that’s not good enough for them, of course.
