Microsoft Lumia: Cortana vs Siri – Microsoft bashes iPhone as just having gotten bigger

Microsoft Lumia: Cortana vs Siri – Microsoft bashes iPhone as just having gotten bigger

| November 21, 2014 | 1 Reply

Another Siri vs Cortana promo. This time with the new iPhone 6 Plus commenting on the fact that the iPhone ‘just got bigger’. I did chuckle at the comment at the end from Cortana saying “it happens to everyone this time of year” (festive season, people putting on more weight). I do wish there was […]

 For those of us that missed Nokia’s keynote, here it is again. It thrills me to think that we’re seeing a Nokia consumer product/device launch keynote once more after all those speculations that it is now a thing of the past. We had mourned, reminisced and was getting over the losses. But they had not […]

PureView battle: Nokia 808 PureView vs Nokia Lumia 830

| November 21, 2014 | 1 Reply

Whilst these are are different aged handsets targeting different audiences (even in their prime), it would still be interesting to see how PureView has evolved and whether the slimmer modules are any good, or whether the ‘affordable flagship’ tag is just a bit of fluff. The 808 and 1020 are the gold standards, with the […]

Jolla’s Indiegogo page has reached over $1,000,000! 3 sets of 1000 batches (at lower than the RRP $249) have been sold out (189, 199, 204) and 483 of the $209 tablets have been taken up. It’s a great way for Jolla to get devices to people without needing to come up with the capital themselves […]

Here’s a good tip if you have the original Nokia Treasure Tag (not the mini as it has no buttons) and the updated Lumia Selfie app – you can use it as a shutter button to take selfies with. Now Lumia selfie is already pretty useful in that it has that ‘beeping’ function when using […]

Glimpses of the Nokia Lumia 1020 successor, Lumia 1030?

Glimpses of the Nokia Lumia 1020 successor, Lumia 1030?

| November 20, 2014 | 16 Replies

I’m not quite sure what indicates this to be a flagship handset as it’s simply just a screen but there’s speculations that the screen might be for the Lumia 1030. Capacitive buttons are back. 4.99″ doesn’t say much since MS’ affordable Lumias have 5″ screens. It might be the first to feature Windows”Phone” 10. The rest […]
