First, this isn’t a high end flagship. It’s a monster but only in size. The 1520 still has the brains, and I’d say beauty. It’s more of an entry level small tablet that just happens to be a phone – WindowsPhone. 7″ screen in 720p. I think for a portable tablet but productive phone, I’d […]
Redditor, imJanski felt that the appearance of Spartan Browser isn’t getting much love so he’s made some changes. Things like the tabs button were quickly added after replies so it’s a pretty dynamic concept in that regard. Some users noted wanting a back button – not for replicating the back button of WP but for moving back […]
In the latest will they won’t they, Nokia says they have no plans to “manufacture” or “sell” consumer handsets. Does this necessarily stop them selling the license to the Nokia name for smartphones or even designing the smartphone and have someone else manufacture and sell them? They take back claims supposedly made by the company […]
With the Lumia 640 XL being Microsoft’s first phablet, we thought we’d compare it to Nokia’s first flagship phablet, the Lumia 1520 (true the Lumia 1320 would be a more apt comparison, but I didn’t have one on hand). Here;s a video comparing the design, specs and hardware of the two devices. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oRJGZ30n4g Although the […]
GSM Arena says that the president of Nokia China, Mike Wang, confirmed that they’re working on Android smartphones. Akin to how the Nokia N1 was produced, the Nokia designed smartphone will be produced in a similar manner. Nokia’s R&D it seems will move permanently to China (is that for consumer devices only I take it? […]
Bloomberg reports that Nokia is looking for suitors for their HERE Maps section, at a cost of about 3 Billion Euros. Nokia is focusing more and more on Networks, with a huge merger with Alcatel-Lucent to organise and close. There’s also some small work in Nokia technologies that is said to be attempting to get […]
Over at GeekOnGadgets we got our hands on the Lumia 640 XL, Microsoft’s latest Lumia device and the first Lumia phablet since the flagship Lumia 1520 and the 1320. In hand the 640 XL feels quite nice, not too big in fact (but then again I handled the Lumia 1520 comfortably, so maybe I have […]
Coming across such a title would make most ignore it. But the source of this post is Re/code and the writer is Ina Fried, so it’s worth paying attention. The move is driven by Nokia Technologies which has so far released Nokia Z Launcher and of course, Nokia N1. Former Nokia exec, Richard Kerris said […]
A little random Nokia promo I came across the other day. First it cycles through some iconic Nokias, finishing off with the latest Nokia device, the Nokia N1.
Eric uses the Nokia 5110’s LCD display for his Arduino and Raspberry Pi projects. He finds the LED placement quality stuff.

Over at a UK deal website the Lumia 435 was very popular for being set at £9.99 pay as you go over an upgrade. To be eligible, you just need to have a SIM that’s been active for at least 6 months. Otherwise you can buy it outright for £24.99 plus a £20 top up […]
There’s a whole host of fresh Lumia 640 XL reviews on youtube. The 640 XL was thought to be the Nokia Lumia 1320’s successor but instead of being the 1330 opted for a slightly more reasonable name. 6xx for affordable series, XL to denote having a large 5.7″ screen. Other than lack of camera […]
At first there were rumours that Microsoft would be buying Cyanogen Inc for their take on the Android OS. The eventual aim people said wasn’t to add more droids but to proliferate Microsoft services. Well there’s some movement on that regard as Microsoft are working with Cyanogen to bring these MS services on their […]
With their powers combined, Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent swiftly move on up to be second after Ericsson, N+A-L at 35% with Ericsson at 40%. Nokia, Alcatel and Ericsson once big mobile phone players at the time, now focused on the network game. At 15.6 billion euros/16.54 billion USD, it’s a heck of a lot more than […]
