This has been around for a few days, and for some reason I thought I had posted it, but clearly I haven’t. So if you follow what’s been happening in the N9 porting effort, you may or may not be aware that recently the community ported Wayland (the software running the Sailfish UI) to Nemo […]
In a world where wearable tech seems to be the next big thing (google glass, Galaxy gear etc.) it should come as no surprise that Nokia are/were working on their own smart watch concept. The watch rather than having a single display is actually composed of 6 physical segments that make the wristband of the watch. […]
This has been on the radar for a while (not sure if I’ve posted it before) but it recently got a fairly big update, and I felt like it needed to be shared. The UI is impressive if you ask me, and the app is very feature filled. If you’re on the N9, and you […]
A former Nokia employee has shared some interesting details on Nokia’s situation prior to appointing Stephen Elop as CEO, as well as some of the decisions he made after coming on board. One major decision Elop did on almost literally day one of becoming CEO was putting an end to a tablet/E-reader project that Nokia […]
Allthingsd has a very detailed article about how everything went down between Microsoft and Nokia in terms of their acquisition, we previously, but here’s s started back in February at MWC, but here’s s a very detailed account of everything that happened before and since. http://allthingsd.com/20130904/from-can-we-talk-to-a-coffee-table-mishap-the-inside-story-of-microsofts-nokia-purchase/ It’s a slightly long read, but very interesting if […]
To any Symbian, Maemo or MeeGo-Harmattan user, NaviFirm was the best tool, for being able to install updated firmware for your Nokia device. Lumia owners then got to join in briefly, until the service was pulled earlier this year, when Nokia did some server side encryption and what not. It seems, thanks to some rather […]
Earlier we posted about LG copying Nokia’s “Double tap to wake” feature that we all came to know and love in the N9 when it was announced in 2011; but that’s not even Nokia’s first to use it. The beautiful Ellen was kind enough to remind us that Nokia have been implementing this idea in there […]
Dear MNB Readers, Some of us LOVE Nokia…some of us LIKE Nokia…some of us may even be secretly loving them from AFAR (aka, using another OS or non Nokia phone) while there are others that simply HATE Nokia. I LOVE Nokia products. Just for a moment, let us put aside the current situations and happenings […]
Bias: The killer of innovation, the dasher of dreams, the destroyer of hope and something that MUST be put down!
Dear MNB readers, Before I start, let me put out a disclaimer: This article is LONG…over 3,500 words. It is a subject that I feel strongly about and if you would afford me the space to write about it and some of your time in joining the discussion, I thank you in advance. If so, you may […]
A long time ago, my boss in a previous career once told me “Perception is reality” and he believed that 100%. I was never convinced because I know that the reality of something may be totally different from what it seems. Sure, people can perceive anything to be anything but that does NOT mean that […]
We recently shared with you guys that Nokia Link was updated on the N9 and it brought with it some 3G connectivity improvements. In what some are calling “Sabotage”, the update has seen some users suffer for the exact thing the update is supposed to fix – connectivity. So here is the situation. Someone […]
MNB Reader, Raj shared us this screenshot of an update his Nokia N9 just received. Nokia Link which fixes some 3G connectivity issues. It’s an important fix as voice/data may stop working otherwise. Cheers Raj!
For those of you who have been keeping away from twitter and the rest of the internet, Apple are announcing their latest version of iOS as we speak. Included in this latest iteration of grid icons is a new multitasking layout, as seen above; remind you of anything? Also is it just me or does that […]
This is actually super cool! It may be over a year since the last Software Update, and nearly two years since device announcement, but the Harmattan community are still finding little secrets left behind by the team. By going into Settings > About and tapping NOKIA a few times in quick succession, you get a […]
There are many stories from many sides as to what actually went wrong with MeeGo. Here’s another over at TechRadar in an interview with Dave Neary who worked on MeeGo. http://www.techradar.com/news/software/what-went-wrong-with-meego-nokia-lost-faith-in-the-project–1147770 Nokia apparently lost faith in the project. But how? Apparently in the way MeeGo came about, as a marriage of Moblin and Maemo, […]
