Video: Nokia Lumia 520, 720p HD video sample

| March 31, 2013 | 8 Replies

This […]

| March 31, 2013 | 11 Replies

Whilst often described as ‘bloated’, last quarter, NSN turned a profit. WSJ notes NSN accounted for 46% of Nokia’s sales last year vs 30% when Elop arrived, NSN appeared to be valuable in this waiting game. Siemens is however looking to leave the joint venture. WSJ says NSN is one of Nokia’s most valuable assets […]

Weekend Watch: Vibrance vs Saturation (and white balance)

| March 31, 2013 | 6 Replies

  This isn’t a directly Nokia related video but being a crazy Nokia fan  everything somehow ends up being Nokia related anyway.
