| April 29, 2015 | 13 Replies

Nokia’s Press Release says they aren’t going to be “manufacturing” or “selling” Nokia phones but perhaps the folks at Nokia’s facebook know something else (or haven’t been given the hush-hush memo). In reply to Sudipta Kallat, who said: When can I expect a phone again from you in India? I an eagerly awaiting for your […]

Nokia Treasure Tag – as a pet finder – pretty cool if you can connect

I remembered the first time my cat disappeared I thought of using the Nokia treasure tag mini to find him. Alas, when I eventually got that to connect I realised there was no point as it was the most useless bluetooth product ever – what could it do? I can’t locate it when it’s missing. […]

Move aside, 6″ Nokia Lumia 1520 – check out this 7″ monster

| April 26, 2015 | 11 Replies

First, this isn’t a high end flagship. It’s a monster but only in size. The 1520 still has the brains, and I’d say beauty. It’s more of an entry level small tablet that just happens to be a phone – WindowsPhone. 7″ screen in 720p. I think for a portable tablet but productive phone, I’d […]

| April 26, 2015 | Reply

Redditor, imJanski felt that the appearance of Spartan Browser isn’t getting much love so he’s made some changes. Things like the tabs button were quickly added after replies so it’s a pretty dynamic concept in that regard. Some users noted wanting a back button – not for replicating the back button of WP but for moving back […]

Press Release: Nokia reaffirms it currently has no plans to manufacture or sell consumer handsets

| April 26, 2015 | 16 Replies

In the latest will they won’t they, Nokia says they have no plans to “manufacture” or “sell” consumer handsets. Does this necessarily stop them selling the license to the Nokia name for smartphones or even designing the smartphone and have someone else manufacture and sell them? They take back claims supposedly made by the company […]

Coming across such a title would make most ignore it. But the source of this post is Re/code and the writer is Ina Fried, so it’s worth paying attention. The move is driven by Nokia Technologies which has so far released Nokia Z Launcher and of course, Nokia N1. Former Nokia exec, Richard Kerris said […]
