Carl Zeiss optics in the New Nokia smartphone?

Carl Zeiss optics in the New Nokia smartphone?

| November 24, 2016 | 7 Replies

The specification race probably isn’t somewhere new Nokia branded smartphones want to run. Frankly it seems that we’ve reached that stage where they really don’t need to anymore. The differentiating value is in design, certain UI optimisations and possibly, camera. A lot of Nokia fans want to see that ‘old Nokia’ expertise whereby Nokia as […]

Nokia working with United Arab Emirates on a Drone Control System

| November 22, 2016 | Reply

What do you think of when you hear ‘drones’? Probably not Nokia. Sure they’ve flown drones in the past with their Nokia devices on them, but as to actually developing the drone technology itself that’s all new to me. Nokia are working with UAE to “pave way for safe and sustainable drone operations in the […]

TechCrunch has a touching post about a group that reminisces about Nokia from the eyes of those that used to work there. A facebook group was set up so that Nokians could stay in touch, in anticipation for the results of further ‘restructuring’. The closed group initially had around 900 members in the first 5 […]

Videos: Stunning videos shot on Lumia 950

| November 21, 2016 | 1 Reply

Chris Westerholm shared this video that he shot on the Lumia 950. It looks like a nice promo. Only the slight video wobble lets me think it’s a phone video. 1080/60p. Edited in Premiere Pro CS6 and polished in FilmConvert. Are these purely hand held i.e. hand or hand held with stabiliser? A more recent shot […]

Officially for 2017: Nokia’s schedule to return to smartphones

| November 20, 2016 | 9 Replies

According to the original deal with Microsoft, Nokia couldn’t technically return to smartphones until 2016 but whether they would was initially a very will they/won’t they drama. This week, my phone read out a hopeful notification about Nokia coming back to smartphones. However, I couldn’t find the official info at the time so just accepted it as […]

If you you thought 6 or a 7 inch phone was too big, well check out this goliath. This is going no where near any pockets. But it’s something that actually interests me as I’ve wanted a Windows 10 Mobile TABLET at around 8 inches so I could bring that to work and have an […]

Another one of those coulda/woulda beens – it’s a Nokia SmartWatch prototype. I still haven’t bitten the bullet myself and probably wouldn’t wanna opt for a quadrilateral one anyway as I think the circular watches just look a lot more stylish. What’s it even running on? Also is it me or does the display look […]
