MNB RG: Nokia/Monster Purity Pro compared to Purity HD – Gaming with Purity

  Another post from Janne today, related to the earlier one about Spartan Assault and how Nokia’s Purity Pros go well with this game.

Hello MNB Readers! We have already seen a demonstration of Rich Recording on the Lumia 1020 but Daniel P. over at PhoneArena has a VERY informative article about Rich Recording (RR) Phase 2 on the Nokia Lumia 1020. Somehow, I missed the announcement of RRP2 (not Ridge Racer Player 2) so his article was very informative indeed. Enough […]

Lumia 520 Review; Nokia’s Low Cost Saviour.

| July 19, 2013 | 15 Replies

  I played around with Nokia’s low-priced Lumia 520 for a bit more than a month (true it was slightly eclipsed by the arrival of the Lumia 925- but nonetheless).

A Closer Look at Nokia’s Earnings

| July 19, 2013 | 39 Replies

Yesterday Nokia posted their Q2 earnings of 2013, with a modest sale total of 7.4 Million Lumias (the largest till date). Still 7.4 isn’t much compared to the 10s of millions of Galaxy S4s and iPhones sold; but it’s no longer the feeble 2-3 million of yester-year. Reddit user  youhavethenerve posted his opinion/thoughts on Nokia’s quarterly earnings […]
