Introducing Microsoft Edge: The New Windows 10 Browser #Spartan

| April 29, 2015 | 7 Replies

Ooh, “Edge”. Is that the new buzz word for something cool? No, it’s Microsoft’s new browser. Microsoft Edge. Advertisements It’s so named because it redefines the edge of today. Kinda like Columbus redefining the edge of the world. Less S6/Note 4 Edge. It looks nice and clean. Chrome – the chrome sides of the browser. […]

You’re a Wizard, Harry! Windows 10 with iOS and Android Apps

  I love WP’s built in stuff. It’s perfect for folks new to smartphones and just want a phone to work but don’t really mind not having the latest apps at hand (or using third party alternatives). It’s nice to see that the app gap might not be a gap anymore. Windows 10 allows you […]

Here we go. The name sounds a bit underwhelming – like a sync feature where you use one device and continue on another. It’s a bit more than that. Your phone can be plugged in to a mouse, keyboard and display and become a full fledged Windows 10 PC. The thing I like is when […]

Nokia’s Press Release says they aren’t going to be “manufacturing” or “selling” Nokia phones but perhaps the folks at Nokia’s facebook know something else (or haven’t been given the hush-hush memo). In reply to Sudipta Kallat, who said: When can I expect a phone again from you in India? I an eagerly awaiting for your […]

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

| April 27, 2015 | 3 Replies

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 […]

Spartan Browser redesign screenshot #concept

| 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 […]

Press Release: Nokia reaffirms it currently has no plans to manufacture or sell consumer handsets

| April 26, 2015 | 16 Replies

In the latest will they won’t they, Nokia says they have no plans to “manufacture” or “sell” consumer handsets. Does this necessarily stop them selling the license to the Nokia name for smartphones or even designing the smartphone and have someone else manufacture and sell them? They take back claims supposedly made by the company […]

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 […]

Akin to how the Nokia N1 was produced, the Nokia designed smartphone will be produced in a similar manner. Nokia’s R&D it seems will move permanently to China (is that for consumer devices only I take it? […]

  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 […]

Coming across such a title would make most ignore it. But the source of this post is Re/code and the writer is Ina Fried, so it’s worth paying attention. The move is driven by Nokia Technologies which has so far released Nokia Z Launcher and of course, Nokia N1. Former Nokia exec, Richard Kerris said […]
