The launch of the Nokia Lumia 920 wasn’t all about the phone itself or the operating system it was running on. It was also about the vast array of accessories Nokia made for the device. The Finnish manufacturer needed to do something unusual to generate consumer interest, since its future depends on how the complete switch to Windows Phone goes, and it did so with features like Wireless Charging and inclusion of Pureview technology. Lets take a look at five of the best and our favourite accessories for the Lumia 920.
JBL Wireless Charging Speaker Dock:
The JBL Wireless Charging Speaker Dock is a Bluetooth speaker which also doubles up as a Wireless charger for your Lumia 920. NFC is employed for an automatic connection to the phone though Bluetooth is also supported. JBL is a quality brand and their willingness to work with Nokia for a custom accessory speaks volumes about Nokia’s commitment to providing an incredible user experience.
Case Mate – ‘Barely There’:
The Lumia 920 is a pretty sturdy phone. It can suffer a fair bit of abuse before it shows signs of wear and tear. But many of you will still want a third party case to keep your phone safe. The Lumia 920 is already a bulky phone so a case that adds minimum weight is a must. The Barely There case from Case Mate does exactly that. We should add that the image shown is for the case for Lumia 900. A current picture of the case for Lumia 920 is not available yet but apart from a bigger case, there should be no notable differences.
Otterbox Rugged Cases:
The Otterbox series of rugged cases have also been made available for the Lumia 920. There are two models on sale, the Commuter and the Defender series. The Commuter focuses on protection without added bulk and is made up of silicon and polycarbonate. The Defender series assumes you are a smartphone abuser and features heavy protection through a silicone layer and a built-in screen membrane. It also includes a holster capable of accommodating your phone in any direction.
Bodyguardz Full Body Clear Skin:
If you want more subtle protection for your Lumia 920, then the Full Body Clear Skin from Bodyguardz is the way to go. You get a protector for the rear and sides as well as the front of the phone. The material used in the protector is the same one used at the front of cars to avoid rock chips so you know it will serve you well. The Skin is clear and doesn’t reduce the sensitivity of the touch and after application, you won’t even notice it’s there.
Wireless Charging Plate and Charging Stand:
The Wireless Charging Plate and Charging Stand round up our favourite accessories for the Lumia 920. The wireless is a little different from the Plate as it props the phone up at an upright angle. It also includes NFC so the moment you put your phone on the stand, you can launch your chosen application or do something like launching a slideshow. Wireless charging is one of the things you dismiss as fancy non-essentials until you start using it. And then it becomes essential.
