    The Nokia Lumia 925 and the 920 are almost essentially the same device when you look beneath the outside, so there shouldn’t be much of a difference in performance between the two *spoiler, there isn’t*; but the 925 ships with the Lumia Amber update and GDR2 which bring some great new features. Amongst […]

When Windows Phone came out Microsoft went crazy telling anyone who would listen about its “metro” interface, then they got sued for that word and started calling it “Modern UI’ (which nobody elses uses). Well the same seems to have happened with Microsoft’s cloud storage service, Skydrive; the courts ruled that Microsoft was infringing on […]

Yesterday WP users were dealt a blow when the popular Instagram alternative “instance” was pretty much blocked from posting as all new images were being immediately deleted and multiple users had their previously uploaded pictures removed.

Nokia Event taking place September 26 2013? Nokia World?! Tablet? Phablet? Both?

| July 31, 2013 | 73 Replies

Back in June, we had indications of another Nokia event (post #zoomreinvented) in September. WPC have a rumour saying it might be September 26-27th, the usual ‘Nokia World’ dates. Interestingly enough, although there wasn’t officially a Nokia World last year, some Nokians referred to the 920 launch as NW. http://m.wpcentral.com/rumor-nokia-next-launch-event-sept-26-windows-tablet At the #ZoomReinvented keynote, Elop […]

Whilst the media has already overwhelmingly crowned a new King in the Nokia Lumia 1020 for the best camera phone, 808 fans, at least for IQ, aren’t convinced. Can the Lumia 1020, with its slightly smaller (though BSI) sensor and image processing differences, deliver images that are as good as those from the existing Symbian-based […]

  TechnoBuffalo went to DisneyLand and brought a Nokia Lumia 1020 along with them to take snaps. Their conclusion? For the most part, the “1020’s camera produces the best results we’ve seen from a mobile device”. Quite an interesting statement given that an earlier TB comparison post had an influx of readers claiming superiority of […]

Something I’ve noticed particularly on the US sites/blogs/social peeps is how the big brands love sending things to their ‘influencers’, be it a tech blogger, mommy blogger or fashion blogger and what have you.
