There’s no denying that the Lumia 920 is “revolutionary” in terms of camera performance on the smart phone level; but I’ve have a bone or two to pick with it. The source of my issue is mainly behind the “pureview” concept powering the 920, I know it pulls off some amazing pictures, but the issue […]

Rumours: Nokia EOS 41MP; Nokia Catwalk specs, OctaOLED, 8.4mm slim, 2000mAh, f2.0 with OIS, May 15th
Corroborating previous rumours, the Nokia Lumia ‘Catwalk’ is rumoured for a May 15th Launch. OctaOLED 4.5″ 1280X768 129mm x 8.4mm x 71mm 132g OIS 2000mAh 1GB RAM, 8.7MP All aluminium https://twitter.com/flapic Is this flavio trustworthy? There’s another rumour inserted in at the end. A different phone with 41mpx. I suspect we’ll hear more of […]
A very awesome Pay and Go price from Carphone Warehouse. Just £99 for the new Nokia Lumia 520. There is an additional £10 top up but that’s credit for you to use as you wish on calls/text/data. BTW, based on all my purchases at CPW, their phones tend to be unlocked. Most pay and go […]
It’s always funny when websites have no idea what they’re doing and try to do some fancy Photoshop and screen rendering effect; well here’s some sort of bank slapping Symbian on a galaxy S3. I wonder how it would perform on those hardware specs?
Quick! 2 seconds! Which picture from the two above was taken by the 720, and which by the 920? Wrong! Crazy as it is but that pretty looking, well colored one on top was taken by the 720, while the over exposed one on the bottom is the result of its big brother the 920. […]
A couple of retail outlets shows availability for the Nokia Lumi 520 WP8 Smartphone in India. Over at Saholic, they’ve got all the colours, free delivery in 5 days (with payment to you if they’re late) as well as a 16GB microSD card. This is for 10,499 INR. http://www.saholic.com/mobile-phones/nokia-lumia-520-1006174 It’s also available here (though […]
A couple of stories from Times of India, first up, NSN is staying put as an stake sale won’t be happening at least for a few months. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/tech/tech-news/hardware/Nokia-Siemens-stake-sale-unlikely-for-months-Sources/articleshow/19398016.cms Next up, the Nokia Flagship store in Shaghai is closing its doors in favour of pushing Nokia Lumia handsets through carriers and third party retailers.

This morning, Michael demoed Nokia Music for W8. I haven’t used W8 or W8 for tablets yet but I’m really digging these UIs. Nokia also put an official demo on their channel, and it’s demoed by Deano aka Dean Pattrick Nokia’s Entertainment Evangelist.
One of the things I really enjoyed when from from S^3 to WP was the virtual keyboard. Despite the weird layout in landscape (not taking up the whole width) it’s amazing to use. I love the letter accuracy, the keyboard sounds that are separate for different types of keys, and the way the keyboard […]
Some interesting concepts suggested by jonathonpm on TheVerge forums. http://www.theverge.com/2013/4/4/4183980/a-few-small-features-i-would-like-to-see-in-windows-phone-mock-ups 3X2 or 3/4 length tile. Big enough to have extra information but still having space for a couple of tiles Folders. One tile that expands other tiles outwards. A little bit like the Grid10 phone (oh dear – saying Oh Dear more because of Grid10 […]
What a beautiful car and very beautiful picture. I wasn’t sure it was actually a photo, as did many readers on Reddit who thought it might be an in-game screenshot. You know how much I love things in Yellow (with hints of black). Popularised in transformers as BumbleBee http://i.imgur.com/ItaQOsc.jpg Via: Reddit Nice. I wouldn’t mind this […]
Amazing Alex which was just released for WP8 is now also available for WP7. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/amazing-alex/55c200d2-49b2-4019-9168-b9648094c79f?signin=true Although I’m on WP8 now, it still annoys me that WP7 users are getting left out in some of the app activities for WP (Even those that are on WP8 have to content with the whole 1GB RAM issue). It’ll […]
Found half a meter underground, a Nokia Lumia 920 was run over and buried by a 24-tonne Caterpillar. http://www.iltasanomat.fi/digi/art-1288553981742.html The screen is shattered but it supposedly still works. This isn’t the first time they’ve found a Nokia resisting the call of Death. A Nokia N66 survived being crushed by 13 tonnes of […]
Hey, I just noticed a picture of me (or at least a reflection) on a BGR article from last June. Anyway, with that aside, there’s quite a thought provoking article from Tero Kuittinen at BGR who is outraged at the way the history of mobile phones has been rewritten by ‘many Americans’. http://bgr.com/2013/04/04/american-mobile-phone-history-revision-criticism-412820/ It seems to […]
