TheVerge report that Samsung’s flagship Galaxy, the S5, didn’t do as well as predicted, shipping 40% less units than predicted with stock piling up in warehouses.

According to UberGizmo, Microsoft has acknowledged a bug that causes WP8.1 to freeze thus forcing users to reset the phone. I’ve experienced this before on the 1520. The bug I have is where after some time after a reset, Calendar or perhaps a different app like weather, will resume, and resume, and resume and then […]

Why is Nokia’s YouTube uploading the Nokia N1 intro video again and again?

| November 24, 2014 | 4 Replies

“Nokia Just Uploaded a Video” says the email alert from YouTube. But upon clicking, it’s the same intro video they’ve posted before. Perhaps there’s a minor change? Possibly so minor no one’s noticed it as the only comments there question why they keep posting the same video. Other uploads (last before this was on Friday) […]

Is this on one of those selfie sticks? I know the front camera is wide angle but even that girl’s arms aren’t that long. As opposed to just simply taking a picture in a crowd of people, these folks are all genuinely starting at the camera trying to get in the frame. Other ways to […]

Marketing Magazine spoke with Adam Johnson, the company’s UK marketing for devices talked about the phasing out of Nokia at Microsoft. He says essentially that they’re very confident in the Lumia brand. Confident enough that they could make their own switch away from having NOKIA ahead of the license expiry (for smartphones at least) in […]

| November 22, 2014 | 7 Replies

A quick tour of Jolla’s presence at Slush, branded by Marc Dillon as the world’s greatest technology conference. There, Jolla announced plans for their next product. Here it is, tucked away. This view reminds me so much of the Nokia N900’s multitasking I do miss the contextual multitask view, where if you have two, it […]

Reddit loves NOKIA and Nokia, now Lumia at Lum Conv loves Reddit. They frequently share in return what reddit thinks of Nokia/Lumia. I’ve only ever noticed now though that their reddit alien seems to be giving a very bold middle finger. It’s supposed to be a thumbs up. Which looks like this (official one from […]

GSM Arena was always one of the few places that was giving Nokia a fair chance in their reviews. You could sense the soft spot present for Nokia and you could feel this sadness in the reviews reflecting back on the news that Nokia smartphones were to be no more. In their Nokia Lumia 830 […]

The Jolla Tablet, currently being crowdfunded, with over USD$1 million pledged so far (and still 18 days to go), has added Australia and Canada as supported countries that they’ll now ship to!

Another Siri vs Cortana promo. This time with the new iPhone 6 Plus commenting on the fact that the iPhone ‘just got bigger’. I did chuckle at the comment at the end from Cortana saying “it happens to everyone this time of year” (festive season, people putting on more weight). I do wish there was […]
