From the recommendation of my partner, I was selected though a schedule preference to be one of at the very least ten people who get to try out living with a Lumia 720. After a bit of paperwork and 2000 pesos security deposit I was introduced to a white, 4.3 inch, Windows phone touting phone with smooth curves all around it.
The unit is light, fast, with an ultra responsive gorilla glass 2 screen, has formidable battery life, 6MP Zeiss optics, NFC, miroSIM, microSD, BT3, GPS, and above all – the very familiar Windows 8 feel.
The test drive begins today (Saturday) and culminates on Wednesday. I have it fully charged, all ready, and will be taken with me thru meetings and the like, with the most action this entire weekend. Stay tuned for the comprehensive finish.
