You may already be aware of the rumours circulating around the Nokia EOS – A Lumia with a PureView sensor like that seen in the 808. Well, the Guardian confirms this today. That UK Newspaper rarely follows anything that isn’t already rock solid, so fingers crossed on getting 808 class imaging for Lumia. Please, let’s […]

Opinion: Why Nokia Should NOT Release a Tablet….Yet.

Opinion: Why Nokia Should NOT Release a Tablet….Yet.

| February 4, 2013 | 87 Replies

We’ve heard plenty of rumors about a Nokia tablet coming soon; with most mouths pointing to this month at MWC. Without beating around the bush, I DON’T think Nokia should release a tablet just yet. Not that I wouldn’t absolutely love one (heck I’m dying for one!) but looking at it from a marketshare/profit point of view I can’t see it […]

Nokia 808 PureView’s PureView Super Pixels vs HTC’s “ultra pixels” #oversampling

Nokia 808 PureView’s PureView Super Pixels vs HTC’s “ultra pixels” #oversampling

This time last year, the media outside the Nokia bubble didn’t understand the purpose of Nokia’s 41mp PureView sensor and pixel oversampling. One year later, after Nokia destroyed the megapixel race (who will compete against 41mp? :p) companies are now opting for oversampling instead of fighting Nokia in the MP wars. Apple already have their […]

Here’s a cute promo from Nokia for “Nokia Nearby”. I’m loving the animation and the sound effects. They remind me of my sister’s Animal Crossing game for DS that she had some years ago. It’s cute in that sense – there are no fuzzy cute creatures in the video. From cafés and bars to cinemas […]

Remember the post Ali linked to and expanded on that described some of the things that needed fixing in WP8? WP’s Joe Belfiore is apparently reading and saying that he and his team “hear you”. https://twitter.com/joebelfiore/status/298160049224814592 Lots of MS folks (including me and other team members) reading it!

Nokia Lumia 920 coming to Vodafone UK on Wednesday (820 and 620 too!)

Nokia Lumia 920 coming to Vodafone UK on Wednesday (820 and 620 too!)

It’s been known for a while that EE’s exclusivity for the 920 would end in the UK and that Vodafone would one day pick up the Nokia Lumia 920, but we weren’t sure when. Today, the Vodafone Blog confirms it’s coming this Wednesday.  I’m surprised they’re proudly picturing the infamous yellow one and not BIG […]

When I watched this on Reddit, I didn’t realise it was actually from MS themselves. The presentation seemed too down to earth. Anyway, here’s a demo of the burst mode lens in action, taking pictures before and after your shot. With BLINK for Windows Phone 8, you’ll never miss the best shot. BLINK captures a […]

So, when you think […]
