Windows Phone 8 Released to Manufacturing.

Windows Phone 8 Released to Manufacturing.

| September 15, 2012 | 6 Replies

The Released to Manufacturing status (RTM) of any operating system is the second most important and definitive timepoint in getting devices to market. It would seem that just last night Windows Phone 8 achieved just that status. What this means is that Microsoft halted addition of new features to the OS a number of months […]

Lumia 920 and 820 Launch Party: New York

  It’s been a long time since I’ve written anything, much less written anything for public consumption but I felt like last week’s events needed a bit of first person perspective.   Last Wednesday evening, (New York time of course), Nokia held a launch party/general access and admissions event for their newly announced Lumia series […]

Android now accounts for nearly half of every smartphone shipped- Why that can’t last.

The IDC recently released their figures for smartphone shipments for Q2 2011 and it’s rather obvious that Nokia has had its lunch eaten without so much as putting up a fight. Apple, formerly the undisputed leader in terms of profits from their smartphone sales moved into the #1 spot with Samsung clinching the #2 spot. […]

Windows Phone 7 (p)review: Mango

| August 2, 2011 | 237 Replies

  I’ll preface this “review” by saying the following. This is NOT final code and there will likely be significant changes and additions to both the aesthetics and performance of the Operating System when the final build is released to OEM’s. Further, the hardware improvement likely to accompany this update, in particular the newer 45nm […]

The design of the MeeGo-Harmattan UI: A closer look

| June 29, 2011 | 52 Replies

Just like we did with the original MeeGo handset UI deep dive back in June in last year, we’re back again with an up close and personal look at the user interface and usage paradigm running on the lovely N9. For the curious among us, Nokia have provided an extensive consumer facing page to demo […]

Does “MeeGo” even matter?

Does “MeeGo” even matter?

| June 25, 2011 | 248 Replies

The more astute among you may notice that the “MeeGo” mentioned in the title is placed in quotes. That’s something I’ll get to a little later but first let’s address a few important points from my last editorial. Many of you mentioned that Nokia had a great ecosystem before the deal with Microsoft and that […]

Now a lot of people took offense to my post about MeeGo, with quite a few saying that I was a Microsoft shill, Windows Phone fanboy, hated open source, a goon, know nothing about Open Source and quite a few other things that by and large demonstrated that they completely missed the point. Let me […]

The Nokia-Microsoft partnership and carrier involvement

The Nokia-Microsoft partnership and carrier involvement

| June 23, 2011 | 23 Replies

If there’s one thing that Nokia has always played a big role in, it’s promoting the practice of buying unsubsidized devices and paying lower (sometimes much lower) monthly prices to your mobile carrier. In the United States (where I’m based) this practice is practically non-existent not just because it’s not a widely publicised avenue of […]

N9 to hit Sweden September 23rd

N9 to hit Sweden September 23rd

| June 22, 2011 | 31 Replies

According to a crudely translated (darn you Google translate) press release by the carrier “3”, Sweden will be getting their hands on the N9 as far away as September 23rd. Here’s to hoping it’s released in its unlocked form and out with other carriers about a month or so prior eh Nokia? And how about […]
