    We’re almost in 2017 so just in case there’s any hope or scope to get this shoved in, please can we have the N9 Swipe UI on the new Nokia phones? It is completely workable on Android. I have an app whereby the on screen buttons are no longer there, instead I swipe […]

Reiterating what you knew already, Nokia’s press release states that it has now come into force. HMD and Foxconn will be producing Nokia phones for the next 10 years. This means the candybar phones we’re used to (mobile phones) and later, announcing smartphones. Nokia will get some royalties for each Nokia smartphone/tablet sold under the […]

Russian Government Certifies Jolla Sailfish OS as first Android Alternative

Jolla, the rescue boat from ex Nokia CEO, Elop’s burning platform memo, has found some land. TechCrunch reports that Sailfish OS from Jolla has been certified by the Russian Government as their alternative to Android OS. This means domestic certification in Russia for government and corporate use. Tizen (which also has straggly Nokia/Finnish connections) was […]

On Reddit’s Front Page is a cute little gif starring our star, the Nokia 3310. My SGS6 can barely last half a working day sometimes (random updates here and there either kill it or make it last about a day). Poor battery life is just something we’re accepting. Reddit’s reminiscing about the good old days when […]

Here’s an interesting practical demo of what the 5G Nokia is developing aims to offer. It’s more than being a better mobile network so you can stream immense amount of data (8K in 3D anyone?) or control a load of IoTs. High capacity and low latency The faster speeds mean less latency between communicating devices. In […]

My Dream Nokia: Nokia Hayden Edge Concept

| November 26, 2016 | 10 Replies

Edge screen phones. Samsung made them popular but Nokia has in the past toyed with the idea with their own concepts such as Nokia GEM. They might have lost the initial practicality of having an edge bit actually perform something and are instead, more of a design statement. But I love those flowing curves, ever […]

Carl Zeiss optics in the New Nokia smartphone?

| November 24, 2016 | 7 Replies

The specification race probably isn’t somewhere new Nokia branded smartphones want to run. Frankly it seems that we’ve reached that stage where they really don’t need to anymore. The differentiating value is in design, certain UI optimisations and possibly, camera. A lot of Nokia fans want to see that ‘old Nokia’ expertise whereby Nokia as […]

Nokia working with United Arab Emirates on a Drone Control System

| November 22, 2016 | Reply

What do you think of when you hear ‘drones’? Probably not Nokia. Sure they’ve flown drones in the past with their Nokia devices on them, but as to actually developing the drone technology itself that’s all new to me. Nokia are working with UAE to “pave way for safe and sustainable drone operations in the […]

A facebook group was set up so that Nokians could stay in touch, in anticipation for the results of further ‘restructuring’. The closed group initially had around 900 members in the first 5 […]

Videos: Stunning videos shot on Lumia 950

| November 21, 2016 | 1 Reply

Chris Westerholm shared this video that he shot on the Lumia 950. It looks like a nice promo. Only the slight video wobble lets me think it’s a phone video. 1080/60p. Edited in Premiere Pro CS6 and polished in FilmConvert. Are these purely hand held i.e. hand or hand held with stabiliser? A more recent shot […]
