Nokia Lumia 800 update coming next week? Available for some now?

| January 13, 2012 | 14 Replies

  Two different sources are saying the Nokia Lumia 800 update is imminent. NokNok says available Now, WMPoweruser says next week. I haven’t got it yet. I think this is the second update we heard about in December coming early 2012? Wow, definition of early 2012 being January (not August like last year). http://mynokiablog.com/2011/12/07/software-update-available-for-nokia-lumia-800-with-charging-improvements-more-to-come-early-2012/ Charging […]

| January 13, 2012 | 6 Replies

Here’s a really good looking strategy game called Armed that I think Viipottaja tipped us several weeks ago. (I got around to filming this about two weeks ago and there was an update since this was published today). The game looks stunning. It’s one of those build bases and units and annihilate the opposing team […]

  Elop had an interesting interview with PCMag. A lot of good questions asked. Some of the more interesting ones. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2398755,00.asp Are Nokia selling the smartphone division to Microsoft? As we’ve described it before, the rumors are baseless, and some people who seem to enjoy generating rumors are running out of fresh material, so it […]

450 Nokia Patents (mostly wireless related) Acquired by Sisvel,

| January 13, 2012 | 18 Replies

You may have read that Sisvel Acquired 450 patents from Nokia (from 47 Patent families). From what I gather, Sisvel, kinda like Mosaid, will manage and protect Nokia’s patents and become a source of revenue for Nokia. Patents allow a company to protect its technology, increase the commercial value of its product offerings, and set […]

There are many praises and also some skepticism about the Nokia Lumia 900. It’s not even out yet but if you had the powers, what would you have changed about the Nokia Lumia 900? (No, changing the OS is not an option, I can already hear some snarky remarks on that. :)) First and foremost, […]

| January 13, 2012 | 6 Replies

I had something like this planned but not as elaborate. Nokia gave some people in Las Vegas a free limo ride. However, this is on the condition that: 1) They use Nokia Drive on the Nokia Lumia 710 2) They are NOT allowed to tell the driver where they are going (so he can’t just […]
