The Verge: For its era, what was the greatest smartphone of all time?

| September 12, 2014 | 38 Replies

A quick glance through the comments shows that smartphone newcomers or users that began using smartphones either at or after the launch […]

MNB can also individually confirm that this is true in terms of the OS running on the device, as […]

Belfiore just tweeted about another Facebook app update, (this time is not for BETA) The update includes  features like Inline tagging, photo features, Unfriend/unlike and more.

The IDC recently released their figures for smartphone shipments for Q2 2011 and it’s rather obvious that Nokia has had its lunch eaten without so much as putting up a fight. Apple, formerly the undisputed leader in terms of profits from their smartphone sales moved into the #1 spot with Samsung clinching the #2 spot. […]

A frequent suggestion in blog comments relating to Nokia is to go with Android/WP7 and when it was available, to go buy Palm for WebOS. Why? Nokia has in house, Symbian and Maemo, the latter of which has become MeeGo – though the phone side has no presence on the market since there are no […]
