    This has been rumoured plenty of times but it’s picking up steam again. It is believed by some sources that Microsoft might just give Nokia a stab in the back by releasing their own phone. Congrats. What a sure way of making sure Windows Phone dies a slow death. It was bad enough […]

| October 2, 2012 | 11 Replies

      There were some initial stories that the pre-order price would be around 470GBP for the Nokia Lumia 920.  http://mynokiablog.com/2012/09/27/lumia-820920-confirmed-for-australia-pricing-and-release-date-comes-to-italy/ I hope ThreeUK will get it. They’re really quite good with mobile data and seem to offer better subsidies. A Swedish retailer (with a picture of the 900 instead :/) says it’s going […]

| October 2, 2012 | 16 Replies

I was scratching my head a bit as I wasn’t sure this was actually filmed on a Nokia 808 PureView. Sometimes, the clips seem so good, it’s unbelievable – even though I know I’ve seen absolutely stunning videos before, it just stuns me sometimes when I realise how far we’ve come in mobile. There are […]

Kantar World Panel: Windows makes progress in Europe

| October 2, 2012 | 48 Replies

Kantar World Panel reports that Windows Phone is indeed making progress in Europe. This is a good sign of momentum for Nokia Lumia. WP taking over iOS/Android is unrealistic, but steady progress is very welcome. This is before the more exciting WP8 devices and W8 tablets are unleashed to the market. What more when those […]

  I received a screenshot yesterday saying FP2 was available for Nokia 808 PureView, but the screenshot showed only a calendar/social update (Cheers adib!). Also, for some reason, I thought FP2 was already available but it turns out to be Navifirm early release. Marc tweeted this morning that the 808 has a firmware update, v113.010.1506 http://pureviewclub.com/2012/6548 […]

This is a video to show the boot time of the Nokia Lumia 800 against every version of iPhone (It’s hard to tell the difference between them). There isn’t much significance to starting up quickly (other than not having to wait long if you’re one to turn their phone off in fear that silent might […]
