Mythbusting Nokia’s Meltemi – Part 1: N9, Elop – Android safest best

| November 25, 2014 | 19 Replies

Ali, Michael and I have had the pleasure of discussing Nokia’s Meltemi plans with a once Nokia employee on the Meltemi team. They’ve shared a wealth of information with us which we’ll be publishing over a series of posts so the amount of text won’t be too overwhelming. Thank you very much again for taking […]

TIP: Slower charger makes the WP red low-battery indicator flash more slowly

TIP: Slower charger makes the WP red low-battery indicator flash more slowly

| November 24, 2014 | 4 Replies

I didn’t know this feature existed. I knew that when the phone was on, I’d get notifications that my Lumia would charge more slowly because of a slightly incompatible microsUSB charger (a non Nokia – usually the Apple/iPhone or Palm charger – yes I said Palm). By using a Nokia charger or the equivalent MicroUSB […]

Where would WindowsPhone be right now if Microsoft-Nokia and/or buyout deal didn’t happen?

There’s always a lot of talk about what would happen to Nokia if X/Y/Z did or didn’t happen. But what about the other party involved: Microsoft. What would happen to WindowsPhone if: a) The Nokia-Microsoft deal on February 11th DIDN’T happen b) if post Nokia-Microsoft deal, Nokia decided to go it alone and MS didn’t […]

  When the N1 launched, we did a quick specs comparison here. The N1 competes with the iPad Mini in terms of size, very similar design and specs (with the N1 being significantly less expensive). Below are some comparison photos of rendered images (presumably as the brief hands on at launch did not allow enough […]

Microsoft at Barcelona MWC, March 2-5, 2015 – Could we finally see a new Lumia flagship? 1020/1520 successors?

Microsoft at Barcelona MWC, March 2-5, 2015 – Could we finally see a new Lumia flagship? 1020/1520 successors?

| November 24, 2014 | 7 Replies

Microsoft’s got a presence at MWC 2015. Pin the dates in your diary: March 2-5, 2015. We didn’t get any Lumia flagships this year and it’s unlikely we’ll get any announcements with December looming. However, it could mean that the 1020 successor as well as the 1520 successor will be unveiled, and all with Windows […]

Rolling Out Soon: Lumia Denim!

| November 24, 2014 | 2 Replies

In reply to Rohith, Lumia replied that they’ll be rolling out Lumia Denim soon following testing testing and operator approval. Lumia Denim brings the always listening Cortana for the Nokia Lumia 1520 and 930. The latter two will also get 4K recording, hopefully faster camera times too as well as Rich Capture (I think that […]

Samsung sells 40% fewer S5’s than predicted – Could a Nokia Android flagship made a dent into Sammy too?

| November 24, 2014 | 13 Replies

TheVerge report that Samsung’s flagship Galaxy, the S5, didn’t do as well as predicted, shipping 40% less units than predicted with stock piling up in warehouses. Whilst Samsung have a tight hold over Android, it seems that the likes of HTC and LG kicking things into gear made it harder for people to instantly choose […]

Freezing bug that causes WP, forcing a reset in 925 and 1020?

Freezing bug that causes WP, forcing a reset in 925 and 1020?

| November 24, 2014 | 3 Replies

According to UberGizmo, Microsoft has acknowledged a bug that causes WP8.1 to freeze thus forcing users to reset the phone. I’ve experienced this before on the 1520. The bug I have is where after some time after a reset, Calendar or perhaps a different app like weather, will resume, and resume, and resume and then […]

Why is Nokia’s YouTube uploading the Nokia N1 intro video again and again?

Why is Nokia’s YouTube uploading the Nokia N1 intro video again and again?

| November 24, 2014 | 5 Replies

“Nokia Just Uploaded a Video” says the email alert from YouTube. But upon clicking, it’s the same intro video they’ve posted before. Perhaps there’s a minor change? Possibly so minor no one’s noticed it as the only comments there question why they keep posting the same video. Other uploads (last before this was on Friday) […]

Over a year since its announcement and the Nokia Lumia 1520 still has the best battery endurance life according to GSM Arena’s tests at 107 hours (3400mAh, 6″ screen, WP8.1).

Is this on one of those selfie sticks? I know the front camera is wide angle but even that girl’s arms aren’t that long. As opposed to just simply taking a picture in a crowd of people, these folks are all genuinely starting at the camera trying to get in the frame. Other ways to […]

Marketing Magazine spoke with Adam Johnson, the company’s UK marketing for devices talked about the phasing out of Nokia at Microsoft. He says essentially that they’re very confident in the Lumia brand. Confident enough that they could make their own switch away from having NOKIA ahead of the license expiry (for smartphones at least) in […]

A quick tour of Jolla’s presence at Slush, branded by Marc Dillon as the world’s greatest technology conference. There, Jolla announced plans for their next product. Here it is, tucked away. This view reminds me so much of the Nokia N900’s multitasking I do miss the contextual multitask view, where if you have two, it […]
