Nokia Lumia 800 top of TechnoBuffalo’s Sexiest Gadgets list for 2011 (+ramble on N9/Nokia design)

Advertisements   In the past, Nokia has always been known for head turning design, either by being bold and distinct or just being utterly beautiful. Nokia’s touch phones have looked nice but nothing to light the world on fire. Then came of course the Nokia N9 which gave a glimpse as to what the Lumia […]

Now let’s look at that oh so subtle change of the legend of a name that was Symbian – the first to bring smartphone to the masses which now has been quietly dropped in line for the Nokia brand, Nokia Belle. It’s been almost […]

Clarity on Nokia N9 FW versions

| December 8, 2011 | 24 Replies

It seems after we posted about a new N9 FW being available on Navifirm, many claimed it to be Pr 1.2, others a bug fix for PR 1.1. This post is to settle the dispute. Sorry for an image that looks sketchy, it is all I can reveal without sharing the developer’s details, but the […]

What are the new competition beating phones in the Nokia portfolio? E7? X7? C7? Hello? What did we have against […]

Dear MNB√ā¬†readers, the Nokia N8√ā¬†impresses once again. Say what you may about Symbian^3/Anna/Belle and even Nokia, but we cannot truthfully deny the craftmanship that went into designing and developing the N8’s 12 Megapixel 720p Carl Zeiss camera module. From GSMArena: The rapid progress that cameraphone√ā¬†have been making over the past few years is no secret […]

Here’s an interesting video covering a topic that’s coming up frequently in the discussions here. √ā¬†The video is titled, “What is life-enhancing? The balance between technology and user experience” Here they talk about focusing now on user experience instead of just pure technology.
