Microsoft stops collecting own mapping data, sends 100 Bing engineers to Uber

Microsoft stops collecting own mapping data, sends 100 Bing engineers to Uber

| July 1, 2015 | Reply

Uber is on a roll bolstering their mapping efforts. Their business is all about location. This move along with bidding for Nokia’s HERE solutions means less reliance on Google and greater room to grow and stretch their lead, especially when it comes to business outside of Uber’s traditional driver/taxi service. i.e. self driving cars, same day […]

3 years and four months ago, Nokia launched the Nokia 808 PureView which still to this day other cameraphones are having a hard time competing with, especially in terms of producing an astonishing amount of detail. The likes of the LG G4 and S6, fair play to them, are giving some fantastic pictures and what […]

Nokia had four tablets in the canned mix

| June 20, 2015 | 13 Replies

Nokia had plenty of ‘internet tablet’ family members. But as to newer, larger tablets to compete with iPad, until their N1 and the Lumia 2520 there wasn’t anything but a magical wait of ‘when would Nokia make their tablet’. When it’s too late of course. Anyway, according to @evleaks, there were at least four more. […]

TheRegister says Nokia’s demise wasn’t Elop’s Fault, TheVerge asks what will Elop Steal Next?

| June 19, 2015 | 27 Replies

An Editorial from TheRegister actually has Stephen Elop’s back. I think it’s interesting to mention this perspective given that Elop is synonymous amongst many Nokia fans and Finns as the “Trojan Horse” sent from Microsoft. Andrew Orlowski feels that blaming Elop is, “chauvinistic nonsense, which seeks to transfer blame away from years of complacency and […]

Rajiv Suri saying Nokia is coming back to smartphone market?

| June 18, 2015 | 42 Replies

The latest will they, won’t they is of course Nokia coming back to smartphones. In the past Nokia has constantly denied rumours only for them to become true, e.g. coming back to devices…no..no..no…here’s the N1 guys. Well that might be shortening a more complicated story but nobody’s got time for that full recap. Manager-Magazin.de reports […]

TheVerge have an editorial by Vlad about how Microsoft has put the nail on Nokia’s coffin. With the exit of Elop and Harlow, Vlad says: Any glimmer of hope that Nokia wouldn’t be subsumed into the Microsoft monolith and would continue along its own path, albeit under a different name, has today been extinguished. I […]

At E3, Microsoft built a pretty cool Halo 5 Hololens experience. They’ve built the inside of a UNSC ship and with Hololens, mixed digital with the physical reality. As opposed to VR where you’re looking completely and only at a screen, Hololens superimposes objects into your real life surroundings. Your eyes have a direct line […]

Terry Myerson is getting this even bigger responsibility, essentially the next top guy after Nadella, […]

Peter Skillman was Head of Design for HERE up until today. Amongst Nokians, we knew him better as the guy who came from Palm back in the fall of September 2012. Skillman was then the new Nokia guy involved in the fantastic looking WebOS (as VP of Palm design), and then as Nokia’s VP MeeGo […]

Cancelled Nokia Smartwatch – Microsoft Moonraker

| June 12, 2015 | 13 Replies

If the Nokia and Microsoft partnership continued independently as per original plans, Nokia would have unveiled their own smartwatch. After the D&S purchase, Nokia’s smartwatch project was cancelled (though Microsoft did continue to release their “band”. The boxiness of Metro kinda fits the smaller screen of a smartwatch. I think it probably doesn’t need the […]

For a long time after all the Nokia rebranding to Microsoft, one of the publicly named Nokia things remained the same – the Nokia Theatre in LA.
