Chris Weber seems to have confirmed once again a flagship Lumia by commenting that Microsoft are going to be reentering the premium smartphone market this year. It might even […]

Nokia Treasure Tag – as a pet finder – pretty cool if you can connect

Nokia Treasure Tag – as a pet finder – pretty cool if you can connect

I remembered the first time my cat disappeared I thought of using the Nokia treasure tag mini to find him. Alas, when I eventually got that to connect I realised there was no point as it was the most useless bluetooth product ever – what could it do? I can’t locate it when it’s missing. […]

Move aside, 6″ Nokia Lumia 1520 – check out this 7″ monster

Move aside, 6″ Nokia Lumia 1520 – check out this 7″ monster

| April 26, 2015 | 11 Replies

First, this isn’t a high end flagship. It’s a monster but only in size. The 1520 still has the brains, and I’d say beauty. It’s more of an entry level small tablet that just happens to be a phone – WindowsPhone. 7″ screen in 720p. I think for a portable tablet but productive phone, I’d […]

| April 26, 2015 | Reply

Redditor, imJanski felt that the appearance of Spartan Browser isn’t getting much love so he’s made some changes. Things like the tabs button were quickly added after replies so it’s a pretty dynamic concept in that regard. Some users noted wanting a back button – not for replicating the back button of WP but for moving back […]

Lumia 640 XL Vs. Lumia 1520

Lumia 640 XL Vs. Lumia 1520

| April 25, 2015 | 2 Replies

With the Lumia 640 XL being Microsoft’s first phablet, we thought we’d compare it to Nokia’s first flagship phablet, the Lumia 1520 (true the Lumia 1320 would be a more apt comparison, but I didn’t have one on hand). Here;s a video comparing the design, specs and hardware of the two devices. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oRJGZ30n4g Although the […]

  Over at GeekOnGadgets we got our hands on the Lumia 640 XL, Microsoft’s latest Lumia device and the first Lumia phablet since the flagship Lumia 1520 and the 1320. In hand the 640 XL feels quite nice, not too big in fact (but then again I handled the Lumia 1520 comfortably, so maybe I have […]

  There’s a whole host of fresh Lumia 640 XL reviews on youtube. The 640 XL was thought to be the Nokia Lumia 1320’s successor but instead of being the 1330 opted for a slightly more reasonable name. 6xx for affordable series, XL to denote having a large 5.7″ screen. Other than lack of camera […]

Windows 10 for small tablets – the Windows Galaxy Note/Nokia N800? #Phablet

Day by day, Windows 10 on phones is looking better and better. WinBeta has shared some screenshots of Windows10 for small tablets and it looks a lot like Windows 10 on phones but with a bit extra on the side. It instantly gave me the feeling of realising the potential of something like the Galaxy […]

Another knock out for Microsoft’s Entry Level Lumias with the New Lumia 540

Another knock out for Microsoft’s Entry Level Lumias with the New Lumia 540

| April 15, 2015 | 2 Replies

The 5xx series is a great line up for Lumia. The 520 becoming one of the best selling Windows devices was followed up with a rather compromise packed Lumia 530. Fortunately Microsoft fixed most of that with the almost brilliant 535. Today they launched the 540. 5″ HD display. The 535 had a 960×540 5″ […]

Nokia Lumias were prominent all over the prior seasons of the Netflix hit series, “House of Cards”. It was nice to see even more of them in this season. Now all phones aren’t Lumias, just 90% of the phones you see. Sounds and visual aids (text messages superimposed on screen) are also WP related. The […]
