Hope you’re enjoying and chilling on your weekend. Just to add a bit of extra hmour, Nokia’s facebook just posted the above picture. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151046906527397&set=a.338008237396.161268.36922302396&type=1&relevant_count=1&ref=nf You know how it goes down when you or even a friend has dropped a phone down the toilet. The horror! What happens when it’s the internet popularised Nokia?
Never underestimate the competition. Nokia and MS must be alert and on guard at all times, especially for Nokia who ignored the advancing competition. For Nokia, this resulted in a change from the undisputed king to the perpetual underdog. Someone else in their situation is RIM, also once highly regarded in the smartphone space is […]
This post was inspired by the dropping of Symbian & Meego support for Nokia City Lens and is mostly a collection of my thoughts regarding the Beta services provided by Nokia, it might seem like random ramblings, but I promise you there’s a point to all this buried somewhere (if you look deep enough). Nokia Beta […]

Yesterday, Ali showed how Apple CEO, Tim Cook was recommending Nokia Maps, as well as a funny cartoon starring Cook and a comparison against the Nokia/Apple solutions. http://mynokiablog.com/2012/09/28/showdown-apple-maps-vs-nokia-maps/ http://mynokiablog.com/2012/09/28/tim-cook-suggests-using-nokia-maps-as-an-alternative-to-ios-maps Whilst we know how excellent Nokia Maps is, unfortunately, it still doesn’t have the same recognition as Google in the mapping space. It’s nice to see […]
This is a video showing a proof of concept app (to demo the Nokia Location Data that can be licensed), Nokia Parking.

Elementary is a new take on Sherlock Holmes, where the famous sidekick Watson is a female (played by Charlies Angel Lucy Liu). I decided to give the show a go seeing as Sherlock Holmes is usually awesome (Still haven’t come to a conclusion as I’m still watching the show while typing this post). Less than 8 […]
Last week we saw an interesting inphographic detailing how Nokia Maps matches up to it’s competitors (Google and Apple Maps); unsurprisingly it held it’s own and beat them in most stats (funny how that’s happening more and more now with the “new” Nokia, specs and graphs were always their downfall- where as a Nokia fan I would have to constantly […]
After the recent fiasco with iOS maps and the ditching of google maps on iOS6 and going with their own half-baked version of the maps, alot of people have been demanding they fix it.

This is one I had been wanting to see ever since the 920 was announced, live pictures of the grey color variant. Engadget comes through once again and has been the go to site for 920 news over the past few days. Anyway, enough with the letters. On with the pictures. (Ow, and the unicorn […]
