BGR reports that Samsung are reading a Tizen Gear S smartwatch. Nokia’s HERE is expected on it. Some say that the move to HERE signals some of the tension between Samsung and their reliance on Google – hence why a lot of Samsung’s actions seem to either replicate or hide google’s services.

Finally! Lumia Cyan made its way to my Nokia Lumia 1520. On a quick check, it seems I can use Project my Screen wirelessly (miracast) like the 930. But straight after it asked to update again as I’m on the developer preview. I still had the folders and all that jazz so hopefully it doesn’t […]

I thought Cortana was on the reddit homepage. I guess another commenter thought the same as they said the same thing. The above is a gif by Dave Whyte. It shouldn’t be long before the Blue circle on black becomes synonymous with Cortana, unless of course, they give her a facelift, as they have done […]

Video: Nokia Lumia 530 dual SIM with Russian twins from Связной

| August 27, 2014 | 2 Replies

The Nokia Russia channel seems to be using these twins (acting as sales guys) to sell a dual SIM version of the Nokia Lumia 530 in this promo. I’m guessing I somewhat heard them say “SIM CARD ONE, SIM CARD TWO? I don’t speak Russian so I could be completely wrong. The 530′s screen has […]

Geekyranjit shows the gaming capabilities of the Nokia Lumia 530. The quality of the sound is immediately noted. Although it plays very well, the screen’s viewing angles is somewhere Nokia has compromised on. From Subway Surfer to Asphalt 8, this quad core packs a punch. No problems either with apps installed on the microSD. It can play […]
