Earlier we posted Engadgets Lumia 710 review, their overall consensus was that the Lumia 710 is a above average Mid-range phone considering it’s pricing and capabilities, with the exception of a pretty bad Autofocus 5MP camera sensor. Here’s what the rest of the WorldWideWeb thinks about it (mostly taken from the comments in our post about the Engadget […]

Engadget Reviews T-Mobiles Lumia 710 Claims it’s “Must Have”

| January 5, 2012 | 28 Replies

So… The moment of truth, what does Engadget ( = general American Public) think of the Lumia 710; well they quite like it actually! Nokia’s first stateside Windows Phone Mango handset is an all around solid performer and for the budget price, it’s a must-have. Even though it doesn’t have an Amoled Screen (no mid-range phones do) […]

Eldar back on form, more Microsoft buying Nokia Smartphone division rumours.

Eldar back on form, more Microsoft buying Nokia Smartphone division rumours.

  I’m trying not to write this or press publish as I’ve tried to ignore now to report Eldar’s stories just because you can feel all the anti-Nokianess despite his attempts of claiming to be a journalist without bias. I think the fact that folks keep talking about him kinda self-sustains the reputation that he […]

Lumiappaday #51: Ask Ziggy demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800 (Like Siri on iPhone 4S)

This is an unscheduled Lumiappaday (not just being the second one for today, but also not in the original line up I had already organized). But I saw the app in our tips (story via WPcentral) and it was rather brilliant so I thought I’d sneak it in. Ask Ziggy is a voice search like […]

#N9Hacks: Calendar Feed (App)

| January 5, 2012 | 8 Replies

The Events screen on the N9 is very helpful in showing whats happening in your life, whether it be social updates, meetings and reminders for the day, or as an overview of notifications awaiting response. The sad thing is though, the Events screen only displays the calendar information for the current day. It is handy […]

  Wow, we’ve some how made it to 50 Lumiappaday posts. The apps are a mix generally of apps that I like, so not specifically just pushing the visually appealing or those that would be useful for a specific subset of people – just stuff I like (and thus could be motivated to demo :p). […]

      Our 50th Lumiappaday is a game called Breeze. This, I guess as the category says is a puzzle/trivia type game. Basically you have a flower and you have to use some breeze to propel it to the goal. In the mean time as the game progresses you may have to collect things […]

N9Apps: MeeScan (QR Code Reader)

| January 5, 2012 | 12 Replies

Something many N9 users have complained about is a lack of a QR Barcode reader. (Especially seeing as N9 posters feature them, which is a bit ironic.) A few weeks ago, I noticed that there is an app developed my Nokia called MeeScan. It works extremely well, with a simple UI. It is so effective […]
