HERE Transit gets even better: More global improvements including FULL UK rail network coverage!

Where there is HERE transit coverage for your city, and you’re managing it by public transport, you’re gonna have a much more pleasant experience than going it alone. Just recently I was in Paris, HERE transit was a Pro on the Metro (which oddly had signals pretty much throughout the line). http://360.here.com/2014/10/28/filling-timetable-transit-coverage-growing-every-week/ HERE reports that […]

LG’s Bezel Free phone one step closer to the MS Concept card phone

What a futuristic looking thing no? This is from LG and it’s essentially just a screen at the front with bezels being only 0.7mm. No front facing camera (the only thing you need at the front I guess and could be circumvented with a rotating camera). At 5.3″ with simply just the screen, this should […]

  How many Nokia Lumia handsets have Xenon flash? Nokia Lumia 928, Nokia Lumia 1020. Any more? I was watching a bit of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and couldn’t help notice a Nokia handset.

Using my PC, I need my laser mouse. But on my macbook, I’m more than happy using the trackpad (my crappy acer’s trackpad doesn’t help). Why? The gestures for one thing makes it easy to switch between desktops or look at all the other windows that are open. I don’t use the 4 finger pinch […]

Thankfully, my 1520 doesn’t seem to suffer from hardly any battery issues but any improvements is welcome. This is for the beta version. Whatsapp Beta’s latest update supposedly brings some speed and battery life improvements. There’s other improvements in background […]

Especially since like all other WP8 devices it’s eligible for both WP 8.1 and Lumia Denim (along with hopefully Windows 10). Amazon have a great discount […]

There’s reports that Nokia might be coming back to the phone market. It’s only suggestive and something folks had speculated since the Nokia Microsoft deal indicated Nokia could not make smartphones of their own until 2016.
