Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK)’s Lumia 1020 – the “window” to 2013

Posted by Beth Hart June 26, 2013 0 Comment 1237 views


The latest Tweet from Evleaks says that Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK)’s EOS, the soon-to-be-launched Windows camera-running Phone-running phone will be called the Lumia 1020. Of course, the phone maker might just change its mind and the planned name for its Windows Phone 8 camera-centric smartphone but it seems like EOS will feature somewhere. The Finns have always gravitated to its trademark naming scheme and it seems logical enough that the EOS will be named the Lumia 1020.

The company has confirmed via its latest teaser-image that the “Nokia Lumia 1020” will sport a 41MP camera though all other details will be only be unveiled on 11 July 11, which is when NOK is holding a special event for this device.

Some startling camera phone facts

Most phones and all smartphones have a miniature camera which is used to click pictures of family, kids and friends. While you are happily clicking away private pictures of a vacation, there is a possibility that someone may be accessing it without your knowledge. Technology experts have found that it is possible for someone to hack into your phone and listen to and watch you, no matter where you are.

Is it a common problem?

Advances in technology have meant that consumers have access to better products and hackers too have access to more technology and hacking is on the increase and it is now easier as well. Hackers try to get their hands on anything and everything they can. Though theft is the primary motive of most hackers, simple hacking techniques are used for spying.

Which devices are common targets?

Virtually any mobile tablet, phone or computer can be hacked, but mobile phones are the easiest to access. In some cases, it may be more difficult to hack iPhones as foreign programs or pop-ups are not accepted so easily. However, for those who use tablets or any other smartphones, having anti-virus programs is a must and manufacturers don’t always add them. So, when you do use phones like the “Nokia Lumia 1020” (name not confirmed yet), that have camera capabilities, make sure that you have software that will protect you from malware and camera hackers as well.
