Also launching through Sprint that day: Samsung’s smartwatch, the Galaxy Gear. The $300 watch has a 1.6-inch display, a 1.9-megapixel camera, and pairs with the Note 3 to make calls, show notifications, and control other aspects of the phone.
News ByteLumia 925, will be available to AT&T customers starting Sept. 13, for $99 with a two-year wireless contract. Preorders begin tomorrow. The Windows 8-based, 4.5-inch metal-and-polycarbonate smartphone has some of Nokia’s advanced camera technologies, such as the Nokia Pro Camera app and some manual camera controls, but does not have the same large 41-megapixel sensor as Nokia’s top-of-the-line 1020. The Lumia 925 is already available to T-Mobile customers.
