The Verge - At 11PM last Friday night, Yankee Stadium exploded.
I had been in section 209 for about two hours when Justin Timberlake started the first verse of Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.” The crowd roared, and then when Jay Z walked down the stairs rapping “Empire State of Mind,” the crowd went bonkers. It felt like every person in the stadium screamed, then thrust their hands into their pockets to grab their phone. I have to send this to somebody!
I was way ahead of the game. I’m already slightly obsessive about taking pictures at concerts, but that night I had a real advantage: I was holding the Lumia 1020, Nokia’s new 41-megapixel cameraphone. It’s an LTE-enabled, high-definition Windows Phone 8 device available on AT&T for $299 on contract, but it’s mostly a camera. An insanely high-res camera created to vanquish all smartphones and point-and-shoots in its path.
