Here’s another notifications concept for WP. It’s a left swipe but with a difference. Instead of having another screen there (e.g. notifications << >> Tiles << >> App List) there’s just a column of additional icons, one part doing quick controls, another for notifications. It would work, though I would like to see that […]

The Nokia Lumia Amber update appears to be accessible over Remote Device Access. OS version 8.0.10311.60 and firmware version v3033.000.1313.20854. My 920 is currently OS version 8.0.10211.204, firmware version 1232.5957.1308.0020 FM Radio can be spotted as expected. Thanks Chris Claveria for the tip!
We were emailed these screenshots by S.M.A.Sithick who has just updated the maps data on his Lumia which now welcomes Indoor Venue Maps for India. In Here Maps you can select different floors to view all the different stores in place. It may be city/town dependent whether you get some indoor venues mapped.
Also using the #reinvented theme is WindowsPhoneUK. They tweeted about this video which shows the Nokia Lumia 820 helping to ‘avoid’ a fashion disaster. The theme appears to be animal/wild. The fashion faux-pas to avoid appears to be wearing the same thing as another one of your friends. So to look ‘lively’ the main girl […]

Ali and I and a jokey twitter war some weeks ago regarding the best colour for the Nokia Lumia 920, was it The Electric Pikachu #TeamYellow or #TeamRed. Well, a lot of the Nokia related twitterverse seems to have decided :p thankfully due to the Nokia event in New York (July 11) that Nokia folks […]
There was a bit of kerfuffle whether TempleRun had been optimised for the 512MB Nokia Lumia devices yet. Here’s a demo of it running quite well on the Nokia Lumia 620 (and should perform the same on the 520 and 720). Как оказалось, игра Temple Run все же может работать на устройствах с 512Mb и […]
Product Experience Manager at Nokia, Adam Giles is on Carphone Warehouse’s Eye Openers channel demoing the panoramic photo feature on the Nokia Lumia 925. Adam has been featured here a few times as he seems to be one of the few people Nokia have that can actually demo Nokia handsets properly, i.e. naturally, informatively but […]
Nokia Germany this time with a promo for the Nokia Lumia 925 which is said to beat the SGSIV and iPhone 5 in low light. Tests by others have also shown this is the case. The sample photos shown look really nice actually. NokiaHomebase
Another local Nokia video, this time an 18 minute Asha story from NokiaEgypt. Spoiler – I jumped to the end and saw an Asha being attached to some ballons with what appears to be an inspirational quote:
I’m not sure what’s going on here, but this is a promo for the Nokia Lumia 520 from Nokia Turkey.
Here’s a quick comparison of the cameras of the 808, 720 and S4 by Zymesh. This is a limited test scenario of course, but for seemingly close up shots, the S4 is quite consistent. The 808′s flash is too strong in some instances . I think people shots is where something like the 808 and […]
Nokia loves to tease, and Nokia fans love to speculate. It’s a perfect match. On Nokia’s facebook page, they posted the image above last Thursday wondering what people might be doing this weekend. It said, schedule a time for being awesome. Some folks noticed that the calendar mentions being awesome as an event on the […]
