As we mentioned Windows Phone 7.8 has begun rolling out to all users across the globe; while updating it turns out there was another update that I somehow missed which was a “Nokia software update” and did something to App purchases and email sync times. After downloading the update it took about 15 minutes to […]
Nokia have posted a video on their official youtube channel declaring that WP 7.8 is finally here Windows Phone 7.8 is here! Update your Lumia via Zune and enjoy the great features like new start screen. Find more information here: http://nokia.ly/14vUUxJ I’m still waiting on Zune to detect the update for my stormtrooper 900; but get updating guys Zune just informed me […]
Here’s a hands on video pitting the newly launched Blackberry Z10 against the Lumia 920. Interestingly although the Z10 has a smaller screen size (4.3″ vs. 4.5″) they appear almost the same size, even-though the Z10 is completely buttonless; I guess that’s the price you pay for symmetry in a phone.
With the BB launch over (read my thoughts on it over here) we can all gather round and watch what will become of Blackberry; will it float or sink? But @Nokia took this chance to remind us all that Lumias are the “world’s best Business Smartphones”. Blackberries make a great snack, but for the world’s best […]
@Nokia on twitter are running a fun contest; where the best caption for the image above wins a Lumia 820. All you have to do is tweet you caption with the hashtag #LumiaCaption, and hope you’re creative enough to win. Don’t forget about the chance to win a #Lumia820, caption this image & tweet with […]
*The following is a mix of a rant + my personal thoughts on the BB10 launch and what Nokia can learn from it. Just now BlackBerry are finishing up their most important launch ever; that of BB10- Without going into too much detail many are comparing BB’s current position to Nokia’s; except rather than jumping ship […]

Nokia UK have published another #SwitchComic this time showing the benefits of the superior low light imaging on Lumias. I don’t know about you guys but this one actually made me laugh; things are not what they seem. Get the full picture with low-light photography. Source
The Amazon Kindle app on my Nokia Lumia 920 got an update this morning that changed from the recognizable Kindle logo to a simpler orange tile. I am not sure what is new, but the update version is 30th Jan 2013. Also, the app stopped opening requiring a reinstall.
I was surprised to read that the very budget Nokia Lumia 620 appears to have “rich recording”. It may have just slipped my memory or I was not aware at all – I’m finding a lot of techy stuff is getting pushed out of my head in favour of medical related items. uh […]
PocketNow recommends to SKIP the HTC 8X over other devices, like the Nokia Lumia 920 – gives you more for your money
PocketNow revisits the HTC 8X after two weeks usage and has a hard time recommending it. Against competition outside WP, they say it’s hard due to the relative lack of apps on Windows Phone. But, when compared to other Windows Phones, THINGS GET EVEN WORSE with flagships like the Nokia Lumia 920 easily […]
