In a somewhat puzzling move Nokia have officially announced that “Nokia Maps” will from now on be known as “Here”, no not “Nokia Here” just plain “Here”. Apparently this rebranding is to somehow help Nokia Maps  “Here” take on Google Maps which has for a long time dominated the US Market. Although I fail to see the need to remove the […]

It’s no secret that Nokia have a very large wealth of patents under their belt, in fact some say that Nokias patent portfolios worth more than the actual Smartphone business.

After we reported yesterday that the Lumia 920T sold out on Amazon within 30 minutes of going live; Amazon went ahead and cancelled all the preorders. Apparently the reason behind this is that the list pricing was incorrect (which makes sense since $570 is pretty cheap for a pre-order device); Amazon sent anyone who’s order […]
