Microsoft's Windows Phone Joe Belfiore, has paid tribute to the 'gorgeous and awesome'in an interview with Conversations, said the innovative new smartphones represented Microsoft's 'next big chapter in our partnership with Nokia.'

Also, Nokia acknowledge the OIS was not shot with a Lumia 920. "At least, not yet," the company said in an apolozy posted on the blog, "We apologize for the confusion we created."

"We're excited about the Lumia 920 and the ground-breaking PureView imaging capabilities we announced today. In an effort to demonstrate the benefits of optical image stabilization (which eliminates blurry images and improves pictures shot in low light conditions), we produced a video that simulates what we will be able to deliver with OIS. Of course, hindsight is 20/20, but we should have posted a disclaimer stating this was a representation of OIS only.

We are looking forward to bringing the Lumia 920, with PureView optical image stabilization to select markets later this year," the company posted.
