The Lytro-like refocus ability first offered by the Nokia Lumia 1020 can no be enjoyed by other Lumia owners with the new Nokia Refocus app. Working like a camera app, it takes several photos using different depths of the same image. You can then choose to refocus on any spot in the picture, something which Nokia has made interactive. From our brief hands-on with the app, it works much like a filter, sharpening up the focus point and blurring out the other image depths for a very interesting Lytro camera-like effect. Bear in mind though, that if you take a blurred shot, the Nokia Refocus app won't be able to do much asides from sharpening an already blurry photo. You can easily focus back on everything, returning the photo back to normal as well as do a colour-popup as well. According to Nokia, the app is compatible with the Nokia Lumia 920, Lumia 925, Lumia 928, Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520. The app can be downloaded at the Windows Phone store under the Nokia Collection.

With the Nokia Lumia 1020 out and the Nokia Lumia 925 on the way to Malaysia, it was just a matter of time before some telco offered the Nokia Lumia 920 at subsidized prices. Celcom is now offering the Nokia Lumia 920 from as low as RM1198. As usual it is on contract with one of the Celcom First plans plus a Mobile Internet plan. Thankfully, the contracts are available for 12 months and 18 months but you will have to pay an extra advance payment which will be rebated later on.

While it hasn't been all that long since the Nokia Lumia 1020 launch, Nokia seem to be prepping or teasing for another major launch. The direct comment from Nokia's Stephan Elop was "next major launch" and came up during the Q & A session for the Nokia Lumia 1020. The Nokia head didn't reveal anything else such as what was going to be revealed or when, just that it would be a major launch and not an incremental model version like the Nokia Lumia 928 and 925 were for the Nokia Lumia 920. While this doesn't mean we shouldn't look forward to a waterproof Nokia Lumia 1025 or interchangeable lens Nokia Lumia 1028 it does seem to indicate that a completely new Nokia product is waiting in the wings.
