Lumia 945, slim, metal, rotating camera Windows Phone #Concept

Lumia 945, slim, metal, rotating camera Windows Phone #Concept

| November 28, 2014 | 2 Replies

An impressive piece yet again by Jonas/PhoneDesigner. This is a slim, clean cut design with a neat rotating camera that reminds me of the N90/3250 with the rotating barrel camera. https://www.facebook.com/PhoneDesigner/timeline/story?ut=43&wstart=0&wend=1417420799&hash=8325151590857847456&pagefilter=3 I don’t think it was ever named 945 – that’s just based on the time that’s on the phone which in Nokia’s past was […]

AAS’ Ewan Spence who also writes on Forbes is on Reddit’s front page reporting on the news of iPad sales slumping as “Android tablets soar”. Similarly, a post on the front page warns of buying cheap (and dreadful) tablets this Black Friday, but as pointed out, people still buy them. They may not have the […]

Nokia Lumia 730 gets the Rozetka Review

Nokia Lumia 730 gets the Rozetka Review

| November 28, 2014 | 1 Reply

Look at the sleek little black outfit the Nokia Lumia 730 is sporting. It’s really surprising to see the Fabula design from the N9/800/920 in the mid-range 730. It really doesn’t look like a mid-range device. All the while, this cover is completely removable. User removable back Replaceable battery, microSD options. Rozetka.ua

Jolla set themselves an achievable target of $380,000 to get their first tablet out to interested consumers. Now they’re pushing to boat (currently at $1.3M). $1.5M microSD support $1.75m split screen $2.5M 3.5G! In the first two days, Jolla reached a million and seems to have slowed down now. But it may interest a few […]

Lollipop TouchWiz with Nokia Squircles in Themes?

| November 27, 2014 | Reply

Reader MuhsSalah commented  that when Samsung update some Galaxy lines to Lollipop, it would still have TouchWiz on it. Looking into it further, there seems to be new theme options in TouchWiz (I was surprised it wasn’t there already). As part of these themes, you can get different icon styles all the while keeping the ‘meh’ that […]

5.7″ Lumia Phablet on the way. 1520 successor? 1020 bridge? Something else? (with Nokia mix)

5.7″ Lumia Phablet on the way. 1520 successor? 1020 bridge? Something else? (with Nokia mix)

| November 27, 2014 | 13 Replies

AdDuplex’s Alan Mendelevich has discovered 3 new Microsoft Lumia devices. We’re also told that the Nokia brand may still be present in that bunch. Perhaps a remnant prior to the Nokia name cull and switch to Microsoft. If done right, a 5.7″ device could sit quite nicely with consumers. Small enough bezel, thin enough frame, […]

I’m guessing this will also be a series as well (TIME PERMITTING), at least at first, as I find myself in this vast Android world.

Here’s part 2 of the Mythbusting Meltemi series. If you missed it, here was Part 1. – Just some clarification from the last post. In 2010 the Nokia strategy was to use QML (very high level Qt framework) for 3rd party apps. That would have solved the fragmentation issue Nokia had as they were either […]

A couple of weeks ago we had a discussion about people’s contract renewal plans (autumn seems to be a popular time due to product cycles) and I discussed some of the reasons why I was considering Android. It isn’t a clear cut “I’m leaving Windows Phone or switching”. mynokiablog.com/2014/11/12/contract-renewal-time-are-you-sticking-with-windowsphone/ Here’s why: 1) My contract for […]

The Lumia 535 is the first Lumia to have no Nokia branding. What’s it like inside?  It’s an entry level model but it certainly packs punches where the original 530 should have been in the first place in terms of RAM, LED flash and front facing camera.

A cool article over at Nokia’s HERE 360 blogs talks about the construction of 3D maps through the eyes of a video game designer. When we talk about a 3D open world game set in real cities, the first thing that came to my mind was Grand Theft Auto. As it turns out, Michael Limberat […]
