We all know that the Lumia 1520 is a beast when it comes to specs, going toe to toe with the latest Android powerhouses and usually coming out on top (not to mention how much lighter WP is on processors).

Opinion: Why Nokia Should NOT Release a Tablet….Yet.

Opinion: Why Nokia Should NOT Release a Tablet….Yet.

| February 4, 2013 | 87 Replies

We’ve heard plenty of rumors about a Nokia tablet coming soon; with most mouths pointing to this month at MWC. Without beating around the bush, I DON’T think Nokia should release a tablet just yet. Not that I wouldn’t absolutely love one (heck I’m dying for one!) but looking at it from a marketshare/profit point of view I can’t see it […]

Why Are Windows Phone Adopters Going with Devices other Than Nokias?

Why Are Windows Phone Adopters Going with Devices other Than Nokias?

When it comes to Windows Phone OEMs Nokia have a clear advantage in terms of software (crazy amount of exclusive apps, Nokia Drive, Cinemagraph etc.) and some of the coolest hardware innovations out there (Pureview, Puremotion, Super sensitive touch etc.); it always seemed like a done deal to me that anyone who considered Windows Phone would instinctively go for […]

HTC Uses the JBL PowerUp Speakers To Promote Wireless Charging on Droid DNA; Nokia Logo Missing

HTC Uses the JBL PowerUp Speakers To Promote Wireless Charging on Droid DNA; Nokia Logo Missing

Nokia obviously didn’t invent Wireless charging, but in a sense they re-invented it by re-introoducing it to the masses and going all in with it, bring out multiple accessories, docks, plates and even having wireless charging spots installed in coffee shops and lobbies across the globe. And it would seem this time they figured out exactly what the next […]

It’s no secret that Nokia have a very large wealth of patents under their belt, in fact some say that Nokias patent portfolios worth more than the actual Smartphone business. Regardless Nokia have never been overly aggressive with their patents, usually preferring to settle with who-ever chooses to infringe on them, rather than risk long and expensive court trials.

Earlier today a mini debate was sparked on twitter when I tweeted that Microsoft Stores were probably more effective at selling the new Lumia devices than the At&t stores:   MSFT stores will be the real factor in selling 920s, At&t employees are kind of clueless. — Ali Al-Qudsi (@AliQudsi) November 11, 2012 The reasoning […]

Here’s another video comparison, this time pitting the Lumia 920 against the HTC Titan II whose claim to fame is a 16MP camera, although in all honesty it’s not even worth comparing, the winner is obviously the 920. The Titan II’s colors look washed out, and seems to have difficulty focusing on the passing objects, while the 920 just breezes past; also […]

Nokia have been pretty active on the “toying front” with other phone manufactures, taking shots at Samsung, Motorola, Apple and many others; of course it’s only natural for other to retaliate, which is exactly what HTC have done. @HTC tweeted “The 8X is 20 pennies lighter than the “other” Windows Phone”; of course it says a lot when your only advantage against “the […]
