Check this out, it’s a disassembly of the latest Lumia, the Nokia Lumia 830. This looks to be an official tear down instructional video from Microsoft Care Academy (similar to previous Nokia versions). All this shows is disassembly, not how to repair the device. Don’t try this at home. Cheers adriano for the tip!

Here’s a super cute video of cats and Nokia Lumias, and cats using Nokia Lumia. My cat loves Lumia too and he was (unintentionally) in our 930 unboxing (and seemed to be the only thing noticed in comments).
Microsoft entices new iPhone 6 owners to OneDrive with 30GB free storage. Open to WP and well, everyone.
On the back of the new iPhone availability, The OneDrive Blog declares that iPhone users can get 30GB of free storage with OneDrive. Microsoft has only recently just increased the capacity from 15GB so this is very much welcome. Unlike usual iOS/Android offers from Microsoft, WP users won’t be left waiting as this pretty much […]
The Nokia channel mentions Nokia in the title of their video again in this promo for the Nokia Lumia 735/730; The Selfie Phone. Nokia is also mentioned directly towards the end. The tag line is “Share line uncropped” as you can fit more people in to the frame. Though I do somewhat find it […]
Although a Windows specialist, Tom Warren is versed in all things mobile. After using iOS 8 and Android 4.4 he finds that Microsoft has the best keyboard with swype. One thing is clear after using Windows Phone, iOS 8, and Android 4.4 is that Microsoft has the best keyboard with swype and good autocorrect — […]
Instead of testing and pushing out Cyan first and repeating the same thing with Lumia Denim, O2 Germany have decided with Microsoft to do roll out both at the same time in Q4 2014 as one update process. In “one process” does this mean users at O2 Germany won’t have to update to Cyan first […]
Soon after Microsoft completed their acquisition of Nokia’s devices and services division, they announced that they would cut around 18,000 jobs over the next year. Round one of these job cuts back in July saw nearly 13,000 previous Nokia employees lose their jobs, now according to ZDNet round two is right around the corner. According to Mary […]
Lumia Denim brings even more enhancements to Nokia Lumia WP8.1 devices. I’m enjoying the Dev Preview 8.1 with (i think official) Cyan but I’m really looking forward to the Denim features. “Hey Cortana” – an always-on app where you can activate Cortana by simply saying “Hey Cortana” on your Lumia 930 and Lumia 1520. Lumia […]
Earlier this week as part of an exclusive reveal over at GeekonGadgets we revealed that Microsoft would be benching the “Widows Phone” logo and name in favor of a more unified “Windows” branding for all their device (mobiles, tablets and PCs). Now today an unreleased Windows Phone from “GoFone” leaked online showing off this new […]
Redditor clang_ley has some suggestions for Cortana. On top of increased features/abilities, it’s about having a more natural conversational personal assistant. http://www.reddit.com/r/windowsphone/comments/2gcg1q/suggestions_for_cortana/ At the moment, there is a small degree of conversation that can be carried out and Cortana can remember a few things. A lot of these suggestions would sound even better when Cortana gets an […]

In case you weren’t aware, the prolific developer Rudy Huyn, has been making an app for one of the newest social media services called “Secret”. Perhaps a bit like “Post Secret” or “Grouphug.us” where people can posts secrets/confessions anonymously. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/6cret/8d9e009d-7c3b-4090-9647-9ff9c98b172e With Secret however, you can see posts from friends but it just won’t say which […]
Over on GeekonGadgets we got our hands on a pair of Coloud Bang portable speakers for review, the bottom line is we liked them. Check out a couple excerpts of the review below, and if you’re interested head over to the full review for more pictures, details, thoughts and random stuff. Portable: VERY, at only 96 grams […]
When we were told of the name “Nokia” being phased out of Lumia, as hesitant as we were it may be good for being more memorable. Shorter name; flows off the tongue better. What’s with this ugly branding of Microsoft on the face of the phone? Yes, the bezel itself is slim but that could […]
