More (All?) N9 PR 1.2 codes pop up on Navifirm

| February 29, 2012 | 22 Replies

Many people tweeted me last night to say that they had finally gotten the OTA update for PR 1.2. Just hopped onto Navifirm, and what-do-ya-know, more firmwares have been uploaded. To me, it looks like it is all of them. Well by all of them, I mean the generic countries. No sign of carrier variants […]

All about Symbian (which seems to have undergone a more tile interface to match AAWP) has found some sample pics by James Burland from Nokia Creative. His images are available on Flickr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/jamesburland/sets/72157629106679170/with/6790869958/ There are 38MP samples provided as well as crops to show the detail.

  No it’s not a movie. It’s the new Nokia Drive 3, Nokia’s free navigation software. It now has live traffic data gathered from traditional sources as well as other Nokia Drive 3 users, though this is optional to respect the privacy of users. What’s really cool is how Nokia Drive 3 learns your driving […]

Video: Damian Dinning Clearing Misconceptions on Nokia 808 PureView

| February 29, 2012 | 44 Replies

Here’s a great video with Damian Dinning talking about the Nokia 808 PureView. I like that it addresses the misconceptions about the 41mp sensor and PureView Technology that I have been ranting about each occasion I’ve had. Some people have been incorrectly putting down what Nokia has achieved, for whatever reason. I added that Nokia […]

Nokia MWC Presentation (let’s watch the 808 PureView announced again!)

This video shows highlights of Nokia’s MWC presentation at Barcelona on Monday. It’s not the full thing and quite a bit was cut out. I watched this mainly for the PureView part. I’d love to tear apart this presentation for not clarifying certain crucial aspects better, preventing the media and consumers from understanding what PureView […]

Lumiappaday #106: Hard Blade demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800

| February 29, 2012 | 3 Replies

  Here’s a game I just came across this morning. It’s called Hard Blade. It’s a slicing style game where you have various shapes and you have to slice that. The twist here is not about getting the cuts equal, but reducing the shame to a specified level/percentage. What makes this challenging are the moving […]
