Howdy! Here’s something out of the depths of my heart… coming directly to your monitors (mobile screens?) – a retrospective featuring one of the very first Nseries crusaders.

In the first half of my review, I was thoroughly impressed with the hardware aspect of Nokia N9. Now it’s time to dive into the software department of this unique phone, and things are starting to look even more intriguing…
The long and controversial journey of Nokia N9 is finally over. Whether or not one should be worried that it’s the first and last MeeGo phone from Nokia, one thing is clear – it’s an incredible smartphone worthy of attention. Author’s note: My initial idea was to deliver all my impressions and conclusive thoughts on […]
Update: Here’s another teaser for the #NokiaGulp video that is said to be ‘coming soon’. This latest behind the scenes video reveals pixilation artist Todd, and his role in the project. If you’re interested to see a new piece of the puzzle that makes #NokiaGulp or simply interested in animation, I definitely suggest to give […]
While attending an Intel MeeGo event this Tuesday, there was a chance I’d finally catch a glimpse of Nokia MeeGo phone in the wild. Probably not the N9, but its geekier counterpart… And, well, turns out I did!
Fresh from my trip to #NokiaGulp in Wales, it’s time to share some closing thoughts about the event along with a comprehensive photo gallery I took with the N8.
The fourth day of shooting the world largest stop-motion animation with the N8 – #NokiaGulp proved to be immensely challenging due to the increasingly hostile weather. As I write this post (Friday 1 am-ish) there’s an insane gale wreaking havoc outside. And it’s cold.
With day 3 of #NokiaGulp now over, I managed to get a glimpse into the technical side of the project, and in particular, where the Nokia N8 comes into play.
So I’ve been teasing for a while on twitter about a mysterious Nokia event in UK… Well, here’s what’s really going on.
[Update - added PDF] What’s up everyone? I’d like to present here my little pet project I’ve been piecing together in my spare time… a visual guide to Nokia E7.
A diverse group of bloggers from all around the world, including Canada, USA, UK and India – were invited to fly to Germany to meet the team behind Nokia Ovi Maps – in my opinion, the most popular service on Nokia phones.
On the day preceding the Royal Wedding, along with a few other bloggers I was invited by WW/N to a mysterious little event held London. There, in collaboration with Nokia, a selected group of CNN iReporters were given out Nokia N8′s to capture the big day. And the best part – everyone attending got a […]
As Jay already hinted out, there was a lunch/meeting yesterday at WOMWorld/Nokia HQ in London , where bloggers could familiarize themselves with the freshly announced Nokia X7 and E6 smartphones, and even more – ask questions to the respective product managers of these devices. I was extremely happy to be there as well, as seeing […]
Sometimes before actually writing a fully fledged review it’s useful to put down some raw impressions first. These immediate reactions of using the Nokia E7 might be able to convey a more vivid image than a perfectly constructed and though-out review. Of course, for every type of article there’s the best time and place. Now […]
Due to popular (kind of) demand, I’ve conducted a short yet conclusive test on the 8 Mpix camera capabilities of the Nokia C7-00. Similar fixed-focus or EDoF (Extended Depth of Field ) camera modules are also used in a pair of other Symbian^3 based Nokia smartphones like the C6-01 and the upcoming E7, so I […]
Confusing names aside, the new Nokia C3 is the second handset in Nokia’s Touch and Type family. Along with the Nokia X3, these two Series S40 based feature phones offer a no-nonsense user interface and lightweight design for those who doesn’t necessarily need the extended functionality (and complexity) of smartphones. At first glance, you might […]
Now here’s something nice to start your Sunday morning with – a Nokia World 2010 recap video from the official Nokia YouTube channel. What’s so amazing about it is that it wraps up the huge event that was held in London in just under 3 minutes! Quite a feat I must admit, but I also […]
Since it’s announcement during the recent Nokia World event, the E7 has gotten quite a lot of attention. And for a good reason. It was passionately dubbed by Annsi Vanjoki as the direct continuation of the Nokia’s ‘communicator’ legacy, and thus, has quite some shoes to fill. But before we move head first into the […]
Just a quick heads-up of an interesting new twitter client that is being developed for Nokia N900. We all know how difficult the situation is with native twitter apps for N900 at the moment, so seeing new faces like TwimGo is definitely is exciting and worth checking out. The app utilizes the landscape screen of […]
Here’s something you guys might be interested to see (if you haven’t done so already) - a recording of a small event held on the final evening before Nokia World 2010 had kicked off. There, many familiar Ovi services were discussed and explained by people working at Nokia/ Ovi like Jan Bonnevier aka ‘App man’, […]
So, with the Nokia World 2010 ending in a flash, I can finally start digesting the enormous stream of mobile information that was coming from more directions I could manage to catch. It’s was a monster. There was only but a few things that kept us running with a constant supply of adrenaline, and more […]
