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 […]
With the Lumia 640 XL being Microsoft’s first phablet, we thought we’d compare it to Nokia’s first flagship phablet, the Lumia 1520 (true the Lumia 1320 would be a more apt comparison, but I didn’t have one on hand). Here;s a video comparing the design, specs and hardware of the two devices. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oRJGZ30n4g Although the […]
GSM Arena says that the president of Nokia China, Mike Wang, confirmed that they’re working on Android smartphones. Akin to how the Nokia N1 was produced, the Nokia designed smartphone will be produced in a similar manner. Nokia’s R&D it seems will move permanently to China (is that for consumer devices only I take it? […]
Bloomberg reports that Nokia is looking for suitors for their HERE Maps section, at a cost of about 3 Billion Euros. Nokia is focusing more and more on Networks, with a huge merger with Alcatel-Lucent to organise and close. There’s also some small work in Nokia technologies that is said to be attempting to get […]
Over at GeekOnGadgets we got our hands on the Lumia 640 XL, Microsoft’s latest Lumia device and the first Lumia phablet since the flagship Lumia 1520 and the 1320. In hand the 640 XL feels quite nice, not too big in fact (but then again I handled the Lumia 1520 comfortably, so maybe I have […]
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 […]
A little random Nokia promo I came across the other day. First it cycles through some iconic Nokias, finishing off with the latest Nokia device, the Nokia N1.
Eric uses the Nokia 5110’s LCD display for his Arduino and Raspberry Pi projects. He finds the LED placement quality stuff.
With their powers combined, Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent swiftly move on up to be second after Ericsson, N+A-L at 35% with Ericsson at 40%. Nokia, Alcatel and Ericsson once big mobile phone players at the time, now focused on the network game. At 15.6 billion euros/16.54 billion USD, it’s a heck of a lot more than […]

Whilst the rare review units of the Nokia N1 are getting praises left right and centre for being an awesome tablet in looks, build, performance and price, most of us in the blogosphere are still waiting.

What’s this about. Nokia’s direction was pulled quite strongly in the direction of mapping. Part of the reasons to focus away from Android initially was so their own mapping solutions could be used instead of google’s. Bloomberg reported on some rumours that they might sell their mapping business. Navteq was originally bought for 8 billion. […]

It’s still pretty weird to see a relatively high end Nokia (No Keeyah) device but with Android being reviewed on Android sites. This one is from Android Authority who has already awarded it their Editor’s Choice, 2015. It’s a beautiful tablet, insane price and one of the best performing that they’ve used. There’s so much […]
