Most of you probably already know Shazam and Soundhound, two must have apps (or get just one, that’s sufficient as well) for recognizing that great tune on the TV, in an online ad or in that great GoPro video you just saw. Now there is another great addition to music recognizing apps; Bing Audio. Microsoft’s […]

Lumiappdates : Wordament, Foursquare and Gym PocketGuide

The first two apps you’re most likely aware of, Wordament (popular word based Xbox Live game) and the checkin in social location app FourSquare. Both get an update. Wordament is updated to v2.5.1.0 and FourSquare to 3.0.36.0. Gym PocketGuide is an app I haven’t mentioned before but I downloaded it a while ago. It moves […]

Forbes: Nokia’s Phone Volume Mystery

Forbes: Nokia’s Phone Volume Mystery

| July 3, 2013 | 55 Replies

An interesting article from Tero Kuittinen at Forbes. He postulates the Q2 numbers for Nokia’s feature phone segment, which has been in a vulnerable position since Androids continue to claw deeper segments where Nokia was once strong. This was the initial problem Nokia faced with Android during Symbian’s reign. For a while, it didn’t matter that the […]

A document by O2 Germany lists a couple of unannounced Nokia devices. Something called Nokia EROS and Nokia MARS. The theme, if you follow Nokia EOS, the codename theme is ‘myths and legend deities’. EOS – Greek goddess (also a Titaness), opens the gates for the Sun to rise. Hyperion (aka 808) is the father […]

Nokia are teaming up with the super awesome band Imagine Dragons for the Artist’s Den music festival. My reaction: Nokia are taking this as an oppertunity to promote the Lumia 928′s low light imaging and video capabilities […]

Here’s another brilliant concept on how to fix the small “missteps” or glitches in Windows Phone. Rather than adding much functionality this concept focuses on rearranging WP to make it more functional and logical; while taking multiple hints from Windows 8.1 (as well as merging their stores together).

Press Release: Nokia renews marketing strategy, retains JWT Worldwide as creative agency [#Rant]

| July 3, 2013 | 47 Replies

  One of the issues that fires me up at Nokia mainly for sheer frustration, is Nokia’s marketing. What’s the point of making fantastic devices consumers will love if they aren’t ever going to be aware it exists or what it can do and why they should have one. Marketing encompasses every form of Nokia’s […]

    HERE Maps and CartoDB have published the result of an experiment whereby 5 cities are visualised with the momentum of life.

  I really like the steel drums used as the music here. Video wise, they’re all essentially the same. Just like the IDSA award said, no matter what price point, the Nokia design across the portfolio is immediately recognisable as being a ‘Nokia character’. It’s good to see desirable high end phones like the colourful […]

Nokia Launches new splash-proof 3.5G Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 (+Dual SIM variant) – perfect secondary handset?

Nokia’s just launched the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 (as well as 208 Dual SIM). These are basic Candybar handsets which Nokia says for some consumers may be their first 3G handset. It also makes a good secondary phone especially for when it makes sense to leave your smartphone at home (e.g. peeps in Glastonbury). […]
