Nokia Jordan are prepping for the Lumia 920 launch in Jordan; the first flagship Nokia in the area since possibly the N8 (N9 was launched but it was never a flagship device, and the 808 wasn’t a hit or properly pushed). The phone should launch sometime soon (within the next week or two); but if […]

For years, Mugen Power has catered to this audience across several brands including Nokia (one of the latest, the 808 no?) Today, we hear that Mugen Power is making a battery extender for […]

Good News: The Back panel on the Lumia 920/820 Really is Scratchproof

| January 22, 2013 | 20 Replies

One of my greatest issues with the N9/Lumia 800/Lumia 900 was the silver plating on the back that surrounded the camera lens. The fact was that no matter how careful you were with the phone it would end up being scratched in every possible spot; and it honestly hurt to look at. However with the […]

We’ve been watching Finland, home of Nokia and Lumia, and the progress of WP for a while. Fortunately it’s been a nice positive incline as WP adoption continues to increase in Finland, month after month, no doubt predominantly due to Nokia Lumia. We’ve previously noted spikes passing 20% but now it’s remaining steady over 20% […]

Of course the 510 runs Windows Phone 7.5 but is upgrade-able to 7.8 (hopefully by the end of the month). Phones4U has listed it on their site under “coming soon” although in the initial launch […]

Although I’ve never gone skiing I can only imagine that it’s quite difficult, and probably a lot more difficult when you’re using miniature skis like the “sled dogs” seen above. All that aside the Lumia 920 has no issues keeping everything steady while flying down hill on some slopes in the video down below Everything […]

Although a lucky few got an early release of Windows Phone 7.8 on what later turned out to be “developer devices”; unfortunately both Nokia and Microsoft haven’t been very forthcoming with the details of the rollout (as usual). Thankfully though other sources have been more helpful in providing a date for the update; which is most probably […]

    The Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 have super sensitive screens. This means that despite the glass capacitive screen being super responsive to light bare finger touches, it will also work with your gloves on. And 5 here to be exact. We’ve tried keys, plant stems, blackberries, iPhones, Galaxies, Banana peel, Orange Peel, pens, […]
