Quick comparison between the HTC One and Nokia Lumia 925. Note, if mentioning marketing stuff like ‘ultrapixel’ for HTC, then might be fair mentioning ‘PureView’ for the 925, eh? Kudos on Basil for chatting about both devices on the fly though. Nokia Lumia 925 performs better than the HTC One camera apparently. Just not as […]

We’ve established that WP8 runs pretty smoothly even on the lowest device on the hardware spectrum, but what about actual gaming performance. True WP8 doesn’t have the more taxing games (but it’s getting there, with the inclusion of some of the more graphic intense games such as N.O.V.A 3). The other issue facing these limited hardware devices […]

Below, instead of showing off the Lytro style imaging where you can capture and alter the depth after taking a picture, it shows off 3D video. 3D video has been done before […]

White, Slim, Polycarbonate Nokia EOS shell spotted

| June 19, 2013 | 29 Replies

Is this that deceptively slim Nokia EOS we’ve heard about? From the shells we’ve seen so far, they look pretty much like the 920 but with a hump. This one looks decisively slimmer or is that just the white and lighting? Reading the comments, it may be that the Aluminium EOS are said to be Nokia Phablets […]

Nice little promo for the youthful and vibrant Nokia Lumia 520. Good local direction here, where the 520 is said to be going quite strong. Whilst this is about Nokia music, there are also subtle hints on what else the 520 can do (e.g. exchangeable shells).

  According to reports from WPDang, Microsoft is going to be giving final control over updates to Nokia (and other OEMs). Microsoft will do the basics, i.e. GDR2. Then there’s the handset specific stuff, either the handset itself or the chips inside them, plus any additional firmwares that need testing. This is then processed by carriers […]
