Well, that sure didn’t take long. The bizarre Nokia X, technically built on an underlying layer of Android code but really made to resemble a Windows Phone on the software front without actually running WP, is merely four months old. Five, if we count the timing of its formal introduction rather than the commercial launch.
Be honest, how many of you bought into the whole Nokia-made Android-running handheld story when it first surfaced? Not many, eh? And I bet there are still skeptics out and about who reckon either we’re looking at one of the most elaborate hoaxes in the history of mobile tech, or the launch will be canceled
Okay, Apple, so you got me to confess to liking your iPad mini 2 more than Google’s new Nexus 7 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire HDX 7. Big deal, since at the end of the day, the spanking new 7.9-incher is still pretty expensive. Maybe not unwarrantedly so, but darn pricey nevertheless. Besides, you won a
Say, all ye die-hard Android fans, do you by any chance know what’s set to go down come October 22, i.e. in 24 hours give or take? Probably not Google’s Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat grandiose unveilings, to the sheer desperation of Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts and amateur detectives trying to make heads or tails
Despite what Motorola or Google might try to make you think, the spec war is still very much on in the smartphone world and cold, objective numbers will continue to be more important than subjective “user experience” for many. Like it or not, Big G, Moto, but an extra two cores or a higher clock
If you’ve ever wanted to use a Nokia Lumia but are stuck with your current smartphone then the latest Trade-Up program of Nokia of America might interest you. If you are living in the United States then you might want to trade-in your old smartphone and get as much as $300 which can be used
Following Nokia’s recent unveilings of the Lumia 928 and 925, the tech world is essentially torn as to the company’s future in the mobile décor. There are some that say there is no such thing as a future for Nokia in an Android-iOS dominated world, whereas others claim that the company should still be given
Nokia phones are known for their Lumia specific apps and today, the company said that the next amber update which would roll out soon will bring in some cool camera features. The update will be available for most of the Lumia phones including Lumia 920, 928, 820, 720, 620 and 520. One of the main
After months of seemingly endless and, let’s be honest, somewhat tiresome speculation, the Nokia Lumia 925 is finally here. And it’s, as expected, not spectacular. Elegant, sturdy and a welcome upgrade over last year’s 920, but still not a game-changing device. Definitely not enough to really put Windows Phone on the map and cause headaches
Once upon a time the largest mobile phone maker and the most profitable player in the business, Nokia has had a nightmare couple of years following Symbian’s ceasing in 2010. In all honesty, it wasn’t the ditching of the OS that turned Nokia from hero to zero, but in fact the platform’s inability to keep
In an effort to keep pace with the rapid competition in the mobile phone sector, Nokia Growth Partners is looking to invest in Pelican Imaging according to a Bloomberg report. Pelican Imaging is a startup company in California that specializes in developing cameras that are capable of delivering greater depth and ease in splicing images together.
Listen up, Windows Phone fans and just all-around tech aficionados enthusiastic about competition and diversity! There’s a new high-end Nokia Lumia planned and it’s apparently set for an official announcement next week. Actually, there are several top of the line Nokia phones coming, but only one by the end of April – the Lumia 928.
It’s no secret that Nokia has big plans for 2013, following the company’s abrupt fall from grace and a semi-recovery in 2012 owed mostly to the Lumia 920. But what exactly are the Finns’ plans for the next six months? Will we be seeing just one 920 follow-up? Two? Three? Something else and very special
It’s really hard to not get psyched over everything that’s going on in the Android décor of late. Basically every important “player” has already unveiled its (early) 2013 flagship smartphone, including Samsung (the Galaxy S4), HTC (One), Sony (Xperia Z) and LG (Optimus G Pro). Outside of the Android world though, things are awfully quiet,
