Good day everyone!
My name is Demitrius Harris and I am a fan of all things true. I currently hold a position in the IT Department at a college and I teach various classes when the opportunity presents itself. In the past, I was a Special Education Teacher and a Technology Education teacher at an elementary school and have held titles in the Financial industry.
What does that mean for you, our dear readers? It means that I love to write and communicate as accurately as possible! It is my hope, that I will always be able to provide factual information concerning all things related to Nokia (even when the Nokia brand isn't printed) and anything else in the scope of technology that fits within the purpose of MyNokiaBlog. I humbly thank you all for reading my posts (and the MNB Team) that sometimes contain THOUSANDS of words. You all are the best and most respectful blog supporters in the world! Thank you for choosing MyNokiaBlog.com!

Dear MNB readers, In this episode of Weekend Watch, we cover the value that is to be gained in purchasing a Nokia Lumia 635 either for yourself or someone else as a gift. I consider value to be the sum of a lot of things and it varies from buyer to buyer, user to user […]

Dear MNB Readers, Earlier in August, the Nokia Lumia 635 launched on the AT&T network as a no-contract Go Phone for $99. This is a great deal as you can use the Go Phone Lumia 635 with an existing non-Go Phone AT&T SIM card so basically the Lumia 635 is yours for $99 plus tax. The original […]

Windows Phone Store Download links: MixRadio […]

Dear MNB Readers! Gameloft’s Asphalt 8 is wildly held to be the premier Arcade style racer on Windows Phone, Android and iOS and is free for all to download (works on WP devices with 512MB RAM such as the Lumia 520 as well). The downside for Windows Phone users has been that the WP version […]
Dear MNB Readers! The slide pictured above is from build 2014 and it showcases how developers will be able to create universal apps that can run on Windows Phone 8.1, Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 (and Xbox One in the future). Well, to my surprise, the same icon has already started to show up […]

Dear MNB Readers, Most of us have experienced voice control software on our phones in the past, whether it was back in the Symbian days with simple yet effective features such as voice dialing with OS level voice commands, 3rd party apps such as Vlingo or newer and more robust voice driven services such as Apple’s Siri and Google’s […]
