These ladies are quite popular when they review Nokia products. Here they are with the Nokia Lumia 2520. It’s very well shot and put together. I don’t speak any Russian but it’s still well worth the watch regardless.
Quick heads up: NokConv just posted their MWC 2014 wrap up, featuring thoughts and experiences of the attendees. conversations.nokia.com/2014/03/06/nokia-mwc14-wrap/ Many thanks to Nokia Connects for bringing us along! It was yet another awesome event, not only seeing the new devices and new strategy direction (Android, X-family) but more so to meet old friends and […]
According to “Roman” one of the original leakers of the WP 8.1 SDK, here are a couple more details of the upcoming action center. pic.twitter.com/aNgEJACWgx — Roman L. (@AngelWZR) March 6, 2014 The Action center will be able to support up to 20 notifications per app (20 from Instagram, 20 from FB etc.), which will […]
One of the developers who was using the WP 8.1 SDK to develop his app has noticed that one of the new features in the OS is the ability for tiles and apps to update at one minute intervals when running in the background (I believe the minimum in WP 8 is currently 30 minutes). […]
Thanks to @evleaks, now we can see the other side of the Nokia Lumia 630, we can see that the camera button is missing. Moreover, there is no flash on this all touch device. I wonder if there will be a quicker way to start the camera app? Despite Lumia inspiring Apple to introduce colour […]
I don’t know about you but on the larger screened Nokia Lumia 1520, I am enjoying that larger keyboard for texting. It makes me wonder how on earth I typed so efficiently on the 3.7″ 800 (though comparing to the 3.5″ N8 did help). As seen above the keyboard appears much smaller. The screenshot above […]

A couple of days ago, Rudy showed a teaser about his upcoming app, CloudSix. In the video below, WPC demoes this new DropBox Client and says that apps for One Drive, Box, Mega and Google Drive are on the way too. Features: Access all your photos, docs and videos from any device. Automatically save […]
Whilst technically a “mini” version, the Z1 compact also houses a 20MP camera like the original Z1. Marc from the PureViewClub has some comparison shots with crops to see the detail. http://pureviewclub.com/2014/21806 The result is quite surprising in that the Sony doesn’t really perform that well. Cheers Alvester for the tip!
HEREHERE blog reports that Yahoo! has picked up some indoor venue navigation. Apparently, the average person spends 90% of their time indoors. Here helps by extending technologies used to map outdoor locations to indoor venues.
According to @evleaks, Nokia might be holding an event on April 19th. We can expect this event to be a Lumia one, seeing how there wasn’t any Lumia action at MWC; in fact the Microsoft Build conference is at the beginning of April, meaning that WP 8.1 would be fully announced by then. If so […]
A newly published report by Business Week has shed some more light on the thoughts of the Microsoft board and current CEO Satya Nadella on their position regarding the Nokia acquisition. Initially the CEO at the time, Ballmer was the biggest supporter for the acquisition, hoping to buy not only the Devices and Services division, […]
Quick heads up on this story. More details unravel indicating that the deal to get Nokia’s D&S was mainly on Ballmer, who also originally pushed for HERE Maps. The deal was said to be too expensive and too complex. Gates was not in agreement that Microsoft should make their own mobile devices. Nadella, the new […]
Our old friend Sam was over at the Jolla booth last week during MWC, and got his hands on a Nexus 4 running Sailfish OS! Apparently Jolla are planning on allowing anyone interested to flash the OS onto their phone (similar to what Ubuntu and Firefox tried doing), the idea behind this is to gain […]
The Nokia X family (X, X+ and XL) are a set of Dual SIM Android powered handsets, all of which have removable back covers to access the SIM cards, battery and MicroSD cards. They’re really easy to remove, either to access those ports or to change up the colour of the casing. In the video […]
We love playing about with Phone piles so when we had a play with the 5″ Android powered Nokia XL, we took some quick shots of the phones together. The green was the most abundant colour on the day, which makes sense given the green theme. It’s available in Six colours, we had four in […]
Let’s take a look at the Wallet case for Jolla phone. This one was created by the network DNA and sent for testing to @joaoluisc for his Jolla phone (Joao pictured in the gallery). It’s well made, chocolate brown with contrasting stitching. These type of cases are rapidly growing in popularity with touch […]
Here’s a nicely shot promo of the Nokia Lumia 1320. It looks to be done in one sweeping take, moving from one scene to another but still being part of the same shot. The topic is “seeing the bigger picture” and features the 6″ screen rather prominently. It’s nice to see the focus is just […]
This lady is getting a reputation for being a little ‘crazy’ at Nokia. The weird and wacky of the day is charging the phone by dancing. Or kinetic charging. Some watches have this feature. The main aim is really to charge by passive movement. We can actively use movement to charge things with devices […]
Pics: Nokia Lumia 1520 vs Sony Xperia Z2 + Sunlight readability test video (Note 3, vs iPhone 5 vs 1520)
It’s often difficult to see screen comparisons from another picture or video. They’re usually best seen in person. Such was the case here when comparing the Nokia Lumia 1520 against the new Sony Xperia Z2 with what Sony calls an improved display. Credit where it’s due, it’s a beautiful and vibrant screen. Where sunlight readability […]
As previously stated, in the change of branding from SkyDrive to OneDrive (to due BSkyB thinking it would be confused with their products…) MS offered an extra 3GB for those who used the auto upload feature. Something I’ve been a major fan of since first going WP. Today I received my confirmation that I’ve got that […]
