Nokia has been promising a smartphone with an industry-busting 41MP PureView rear camera bearing the codename “Nokia EOS”. Evleaks says that it’s nabbed an image of the upcoming phone, which it says will be called the “Nokia Lumia 1020”. One commenter on the photo noted that the time shown on the phone’s screen is 10:00, and because Nokia usually uses the time to indicate model number, it’s odd that the screen doesn’t say 10:20. The image also shows a Nokia Pro Cam app, which would be a nice addition to the powerful camera.

Where there's smoke, there's fire, and there sure were a lot of smoke signals indicating the imminent release of Nokia's Lumia 928, the newest addition to the Lumia family and the company's new flagship device. Now it's official, as Nokia and Verizon both issued press releases announcing the new device, which will be available online and in-stores at Big Red starting May 16, 2013 for $100 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and with a two-year service agreement.

Nokia can ill-afford any missteps as it attempts to rebuild its brand into a major smartphone player, so it's a little concerning on a number of levels that it was caught intercepting Internet traffic on its phones and redirecting the data through its own server farm. Is Nokia engaging in so-called man-in-the-middle attacks against its own customers? That's the conclusion Gaurang Pandya came to, who first discovered that HTTPS traffic was being diverted through Nokia's servers. Pandya, who is an infrastructure security architect at Unisys Global Services India, says "it is evident Nokia is performing man-in-the-middle attacks for sensitive HTTPS traffic" originating from his Nokia Asha phone....

Nokia is reportedly prepping a successor to its flagship Lumia 920 device. Codenamed "Catwalk," the new smartphone will feature a chassis constructed from aluminum rather than the polycarbonate body found on previous Lumia devices. As a result, the Catwalk will be much lighter and thinner than existing Lumia smartphones. Not a lot of specifics are known at this time. According to The Verge, the Catwalk will run Windows Phone 8 and sport similar internal hardware as the Lumia 920, which itself boasts a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snadragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 4.5-inch touchscreen (1280x768), 1.2MP front-facing camera, and 8.7MP rear-facing camera with Carl Zeiss optics....
