Since being caught off guard by the Apple iPhone and devices running on Google Android, Nokia has been trying hard to bounce back in the smartphone market.

The Lumia 1020 features the best camera we have seen on any smartphone. Nokia has been betting big on smartphone photography for the past year now, but the Lumia 1020 may be its boldest move yet. Unlike other smartphones on the market that typically feature 8-megapixel cameras, the Finnish phone maker has outfitted the Lumia 1020 with a 41-megapixel sensor. That means the Nokia device can take much larger pictures than its rivals and grasp more detail. The pictures aren't exactly 41-megapixels big. They're actually saved as 34- or 38-megapixel images, depending on the ratio you choose.

MiKandi, the company that tried to launch a Google Glass porn app earlier this year before Google banned it, released a trailer for the first pornographic movie shot with Google Glass.

It's unclear what the Finnish phone maker will unveil at the May 14 event in London, but the invitation gives two clues. It says: "The Nokia Lumia story continues," and in a much harder-to-see text, adds: "See what's next.
