LeakyLeak: Lumia 1525 – heading to T-Mobile

| July 6, 2014 | 1 Reply

Something by the name of the Lumia 1525 is heading to T-Mobile. Just a network variant or will there be differences in design? Could it be at least as packed as the international 1520 not like the 16GB no wireless charging 1520 for AT&T? Looking at the comments to @evleaks’ tweet, there was a link […]

Swiping Swype like Keyboard for Jolla Sailfish with Magical Keyboard – video demo

Check out this gesture/swype like keyboard that’s coming soon to Jolla. It’s called Magical Keyboard and it seems to be integrated to the Jolla keyboard. Seeing as Jolla can use Android apps, couldn’t it just install the Swype keyboard? Or can the Android apps only exist within ‘app boxes’ so to speak? The developer is […]

“NOKIA by Microsoft” on leaked press pic of possible Nokia Lumia 830, not McLaren

@evleaks previously stated that NOKIA brand would become NOKIA by Microsoft. We were hopeful that Nokia and MS were ironing out branding issues so that we would see the Nokia name in the long run as opposed to being this temporary measure until MS themselves switches to Lumia. Not sure if it’s a little too […]

LeakyLeak: 1020/930 love-child looking suspected Nokia Lumia 830 – 820 successor? Or McLaren?

With the black circle of the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the design of the Nokia Lumia 930 (though with capacitive buttons) we have the above device. It might unlikely be the 1020′s successor given the LED only at the back (i.e. no xenon). WPDang makes some mention of McLaren, saying that this device doesn’t appear […]

Porting Android Apps to the already Android powered Nokia X Whilst Paragliding over Rio #Brazil

    Another odd promo for Nokia X. I don’t actually get the whole ‘porting’ to Nokia X which is already on Android. Nokia says 75% of Android apps work directly on Nokia X. This must be for the other 25%.

It has been quite over a couple of months already now since the Nokia Lumia 930 was announced. Frankly, I am surprised that it has only appeared on the coming soon pages of certain networks now. It has made a recent appearance on EE’s coming soon pages. It’s also on Phones4U as coming soon. O2 […]
