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 […]

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 […]
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’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 […]
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?
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 […]
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 […]
“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) […]
Lisa from MTR reviews the Nokia Lumia 830 which she finds looks like the ICON but a lot more affordable. Classy looking phone, nice piece of kit Fast, fluid, hard to bog down windowsphone Some frame rate drop in certain intensive games Pretty quick to take the shot but slower to save Quality – Looking […]
Selfie Sunday – first a world record Selfie attempt and now a Selfie Music video. All with the selfie phone, Nokia Lumia 730. The song is “Let’s Selfie” by Raef Al Hasan. This video was published on November 18th in an attempt to get people together for that Selfie record yesterday in front of Bashundhara City Shopping […]
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). This beats the likes of the 6.1″ Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G which has a whopping 4050 mAh battery! Almost as much as the 7.9″ 4300mAh Jolla […]
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 […]
Microsoft accelerated ditching of Nokia brand due to confidence in Lumia and Nokia having legacy baggage
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 […]
