As much as people try to downplay Nokia Lumia 1020’s achievements by belittling the importance of cameras, everyone else is still trying to beat Nokia at mobile imaging. Here are a couple of interesting stories. First up, what’s got 41mp and Zeiss. Nokia 808 PureView? Nokia Lumia 1020? Correct. But you’d apparently be […]
Whilst not directly Nokia related, the story of BlackBerry as a once dominant platform mimics Nokia’s journey in some ways. Both dominant in the past but one ditching their base OS platform for something new and another holding on to it for all it was worth. Now many love to reminisce at Nokia’s OSes (I […]

They note that it’s probably a good thing they don’t […]
