While nowhere near as popular as gadgets like the iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S3, there is evidence that Lumia phones are gathering momentum -- Nokia shifted 5.6 million of its colourful mobiles in the first three months of 2013. Investors are likely concerned, however, that sales numbers aren't ramping up fast enough, and that Nokia may have made a fatal error when it ignored Android, which has given companies like Samsung, LG and Sony a platform to compete with Apple. Elop reportedly responded to irate investors, saying, "It's very clear to us that in today's war of ecosystems, we've made a very clear decision to focus on Windows Phone with our Lumia product line."Nokia is expected to unveil one or more new Lumia mobiles at an event next Tuesday.

Although it's only referred to as 'the next Nokia' in Nokia's camera test video, it's a safe bet this is the Nokia Lumia 928, which was just officially confirmed by the picture above.
