Remember WindowsPhone and the hassle of the will it won’t it ever get Instagram? What happened when it finally arrived? They’re was some excitement in terms of a “finally, that will stop person X moaning about missing insta stopping WP as a platform choice”. But WP fans already had their thirst quenched by multiple 3rd […]

Catchup: A week or so on Android/Samsung Galaxy Note 4/Touch Wiz – Has some pluses but Grass Certainly isn’t Greener.
This post was meant to come in after a few more days into Android but there were some uni deadlines that needed to be prioritised. This was written after a week’s use and unfortunately got buried under a pile of other things but the last post about Tom giving up on WP reminded me to post it. […]
I don’t know if this falls on the news of Microsoft giving out yet more of their ‘Microsoft exclusive apps’ like MSN NEWS/Weather etc to iOS and Android but WindowsPhone/Microsoft specialist, Tom Warren, writes on the Verge how he has given up on WindowsPhone. http://www.theverge.com/2014/12/11/7377021/ive-given-up-on-windows-phone He has gone and used other platforms before but now […]
NOKIA is the name for robustness and durability. So much so that the interweb has the Nokia 3310 Meme and basically, Nokia is synonymous for build quality. When the Lumia 900 was announced, we saw a video of it being used as a hammer to knock a nail into a piece of wood. Excellent stuff. […]

Here’s a comparison between the cancelled McLaren and the iPhone 6. First off, the McLaren phone is pretty big. Although it is Lumia 1020 in shape, it has a bigger screen than both iPhone 6 and 1020. Looking below, the hump isn’t as prominent. The iPhone 6 is extremely slim but the McLaren phone doesn’t […]

By RT’ing the #ColourInvasion hashtag at twitter, you can win yourself a Nokia Lumia 635 AND a Harley-Davidson. CPW tweeted that you should watch and answer this video to get the entry: https://amp.twimg.com/v/4a2d4cf3-278d-4079-b98d-7434a9927e6f Other Lumia options include 530 yellow and 735 in blue.

With 12 hours to go last night and 30K left to reach the second stretch goal, Jolla fans surged and got 100K for their Jolla tablet. 1.824 million (and 55 dollars!). 13,115 funders made that goal possible, at an average of about $139 each! Kudos to Jolla and the world’s first crowdsourced tablet. The second […]
I found this video left on an open tab from the weekend. It’s actually a pretty good comparison between the Nokia Lumia 920 and it’s similar looking, slimmer sibling, the Nokia Lumia 730. In a way, it’s even closer to the original N9 Fabula. All screen with no camera button. Although it is missing the […]
A short promo from NOKIA at Nokia Networks. I thought from the title that it was a remnant about Cortana but this is about Nokia Networks leading the way that revolutionise voice calling. There’s also voice over WiFi when regular phone signals aren’t available. This isn’t something like Skype, but it actually connects your call […]
Steve over at AAWP compares the camera from Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 against the Nokia Lumia 930. I remember last year, a sales rep on the phone tried to sell me the Note 3 as having the best phone camera. LOL. I have the Note 4 and I’m just not that excited about the camera. […]
The Chinese smartphone manufacturers have overtaken their South Korean competitors. The nine from China comprises of Huawei, Lenovo, Xiaomi, Coolpad, ZTE, TCL, Vivo, Oppo and Gionee. I haven’t heard of for of these, but they make up 31.3% of smartphone marketshare. This is up against 30.3% of ‘just’ Samsung and LG. It’s funny to think […]
