Nokia has apparently reinvented zoom with the newest addition to the Lumia family, the Windows Phone 8-powered Lumia 1020, with a 41-megapixel PureView camera. It lets you zoom after the fact and still see ultra high resolution detail and sharpness. Meanwhile, Microsoft underwent a huge reorganization moving most of the company’s high-ranking leadership into new positions.
Is the Lumia 1020 worthy of its $299 price tag? Are we excited Microsoft is streamlining its leadership and services?
We discuss all this and more on this week’s TechCrunch Gadgets Podcast, featuring John Biggs, Jordan Crook, Chris Velazco, and Natasha Lomas.
We invite you to enjoy our weekly podcasts every Friday at 3pm Eastern and noon Pacific.
