Whilst the Nokia Lumia 900 has no dates of availability in the US or even availability notice outside of AT&t, the largest mobile retailer in Europe, Carphone Warehouse has put the Lumia 900 as coming soon, June 2012. It doesn’t say anything about LTE, not that we have the infrastructure in the UK anyway. http://www.carphonewarehouse.com/news/coming-soon/nokia-lumia-900?affiliateId=78888 […]

Honestly I read the source article five times but I couldn’t understand what the actual violation of rules was; but regardless a series of Nokia Lumia promoting ads that ran on Channel 5 last October were recently ruled as being in violation of UK television sponsorship rules; as far as I understood the violation was possibly related to the fact that the advertisement ran during program content warnings??

Nokia N900 seen in Seeking Justice (oh no, Nicky Cage :()

| January 23, 2012 | 21 Replies

The Nokia N900 was apparently sighted in a move called ‘Seeking Justice’ or ‘Justice’ as it’s now known. I’ve had to slightly pixelate what’s on the screen but you can guess what it said. It’s a shame it’s a Nicky Cage movie. That poor man seems to be a stamp of a bad movie (saving […]

Amazing sound recording from Nokia N9
