Good evening, giffgaffers! This week we'll be looking at a rather important topic for anyone that owns a smartphone or tablet: mobile security.

 
As mobile devices have become more commonplace, we've seen a dramatic increase in attacks against them through the use of viruses and other malware that can steal your personal information, remotely control your phone or even run up huge charges on your telephone bill. Viruses aren't the only way you can end up with a massive phone bill either. Thanks to the popularity of in-app purchases, where you can buy in-game items for real money, surprised parents are discovering their children have spent hundreds of pounds on virtual items.
 
Thankfully, it's relatively straightforward to stop the majority of these threats, by following some common sense tips and using security software. In this article, we'll be looking at precisely what you should do to stay safe, whether you're on Android, iOS or Windows Phone. We'll start with tips for Android, iOS and Windows Phone specifically, then finish up with tips that are useful for all.

Nokia have been struggling in the smartphone market for the past few years. Once the world’s top manufacturer of mobile phones, Nokia’s recent handsets have been outsold by rival handsets such as the Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S III.

 

Over the past year, Nokia have switched to Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system in an attempt to take on Apple and Samsung. This started with the launch of the Lumia 800 smartphone in November last year: a handset running version 7.5 of the Windows Phone operating system.

 

With the Lumia 920, Nokia are taking things to the next level in their fight back. The Lumia 920 features a whole range of new and unique technologies including PureView camera technology (improved low-light photography and optical image stabilisation), super sensitive touch (the ability to use a capacitive touchscreen with your gloves on) and wireless charging. It also comes with the latest version of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system which adds a revamped start screen, NFC support, digital camera lenses and more.

 

In this article, we take an in-depth look at the Lumia 920 and the hardware innovations that Nokia have introduced. We’ll also look at how the Lumia 920 compares to the Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S III and when it’ll be available on the market.
