The Facebook app for WP is a bit of a conundrum, on one hand it deals with the metro layout very nicely; on the other hand it is occasionally usually, very clunk. In an effort to change that Microsoft have built up and redesigned a second app (called Facebook Beta for now). So far the app […]
Not sure how publicised this is already, but we should be having someone from the team heading down for this May 9th event in New Delhi :). This comes before the London event on May 14th where a new high end Lumia is expected to arrive. What should we see on May 9th? Perhaps the […]
Nokia Philippines on twitter will have a competition whereby on May 1st, you could win a Nokia Lumia of your choice. Just tell @NokiaPilipinas on May 1st why you would #SwitchToLumia. I’m guessing it’s for Filipino residents only.
More in the way of Lytro news, BloomBerg reports that Nokia is said to be investing in lytro-style camera start-up pelican imaging. You saw how one developer in WP had overcome this already with the ‘Refocus‘ app we had previously talked about. Pelican is apparently one of the companies that have mastered this very complicated […]
Do you remember when we talked about Lytro, a camera that would allow you to choose your focus points as and when you needed it AFTER you took the shot? It wasn’t something I’d expect coming to a camera phone anytime soon, so colour me surprised when someone made it into an app that actually […]
I wasn’t too sure myself about the practicalities or applications IllumiRoom would have for me based on their first demo, but this latest demo really intrigues me as it does appear to enhance the gaming experience that would otherwise stay on the screen only. I love the Radial Wobble, whereby pulsewaves are visible in your […]
Video: Humorous Nokia Lumia 920 ad from Microsoft stars fighting smartphone users in wedding #iSheep #Copybots
Check out this ad from Microsoft for the Nokia Lumia 920, with the tag theme: Don’t Fight, Switch. It starts off with someone dissing the large galaxy phone (hey, we’ll be going phablet soon by the end of the year too no :P) . iPhone users taunt galaxy users, whilst Android owners retaliate. Fighting ensues.The […]
Kantar: Proof that Nokia and WP is NOT failing in the USA market, it improved the most from Q1 2012 figures.
Some figures from Kantar World Panel indicate that WP continues to grow in the US. In fact, in terms of percentage increases, it has gained the most. http://www.kantar.com/media/mobile/290413-smartphone-sales-data-us/ Q1 2013 changes in USA market share compared to Q1 2012. iOS -0.9% android 1.4% rim -1.7% WP 1.9% Parmy Olsen from Forbes analysed the […]
Raid kills bugs dead. Seems like Accenture emptied an entire CAN of Raid on the VERY REAL HSPA+ bug that terrorized Nokia 808 PureView users worldwide. Here is a little back story via a true and emotional comment that I wrote over at AllAboutSymbian: Pardon my openness, I was at my wit’s end with no hope of a solution […]
Quick heads up on another but quite thorough comparison between the O.I.S. found on Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC One. I’m really surprised how smooth the video is when switching from the One to the 920. Something interesting as you might have seen before from older Nokias is how low light video is initiated by […]
Check out this very interesting new design by Edgar Mkrtchyan called the Nokia Mirror, due to the highly reflective material at the back. It looks super futuristic. Specs wise, it’s fitting for a 2013 handset. CPU 1+1 Cores, 1.2-1.8GHz RAM: 2GB Weight: 160g, 130x70x10mm Camera: 18mp, Carl Zeiss, PureView, Xenon + LED, 1080p recording, 3MP […]
In the Lumia 521 sales video on HSN they played a video promo for the Nokia “Flame”; the 521′s pre-release code name. In the promo they showed off the recent tiles in the people hub, which struck me as odd since it doesn’t match up with the current WP8 design, nor the previous WP7 design. […]
There is no picture, just a story from Reddit whereby a store clerk (probably Verizon?) was met with another customer (who later turns out to be a Verizon exec?) who had a Nokia Lumia 928. The screen was said to be beautiful and noticeably lighter than the 920. Same (polycarbonate?) finish as the Nokia Lumia 920 […]
Justin Bieber, owner of a Red Nokia Lumia 720, 920 and Red Monster Nokia Purity Pro – Win some Purity Pros
At the start of the weekend, we heard that another well known Canadian was in Finland as part of his Scandinavian tour. Nokia gave the Justin Bieber a customised Red Nokia Lumia 720, 920 and a matching Monster Nokia Purity Pros. If you want to win some Purity Pros in red, all you’ll have to do is […]
When I used to watch a lot of TV (not so much now) I sometimes ended up transfixed by the sales pitch of random people on shopping channels. It’s even more entertaining when you watch a sales pitch of a product you might know back to front already. I love how excited these guys are […]
We received this video from Eugen aka @jenjaman who’s friend did a comparison between the Nokia Lumia 720 and Samsung Galaxy SIV browser. Admittedly this did not occur it seems at the same time or same location (so possibly not the same signal). The test carried out seems to have been navigation a heavy […]
As Android moved into Nokia’s Symbian phone low-mid price points, that’s when things really started to hurt for Nokia as that was once their main domain. Now Nokia seems to be bringing that fight back again with the Nokia Lumia 520. It’s a budget entry level smartphone BUT the experience is of something much […]
Some more under the hood improvements to improve your Nokia Lumia experience as Extras + Info gets an update.
Here’s a little promo from Nokia India showing off the speed of the Nokia Lumia 520. It’s a bit like the smoked by Lumia thing except this time it’s just the Nokia Lumia 520 on its own. NokiaIndiaOfficial Cheers manu for the tip!
One of the coolest things about having a Nokia Windows Phone is the constant stream of updates, tweaks and fixes that Nokia provide to the OS through their own system apps; meaning you don’t have to wait for an update from Microsoft to make your phone even cooler. These “apps” are updated almost once a […]
