Windows Phone Youtube App Blocked Again, Microsoft Claim Google Are Just Making Life Difficult

Yesterday for a few short hours everything seemed to be coming together for Windows Phone, as the updated Youtube app was finally released.

Apple, formerly the undisputed leader in terms of profits from their smartphone sales moved into the #1 spot with Samsung clinching the #2 spot. […]

An unmissable feature on Nokia World Experience Lounge show floor was the big-ass camera mounted car which resembled google’s own street view car. Now, I was told by Nokia-NAVTEQ folk Nick and Robert that this particular car wasn’t actually for street view but to improve map accuracy (or words to that effect). However there was […]

You might have seen some screenshots floating around yesterday showing Google’s Chrome Browser on Maemo 5’s N900. Below is a video by Test-Mobile.fr demonstrating Chrome on N900 in action. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6C3t_UmwyQ] I still think the default MicroB rocks the pants off any alternative browser (being faster, better flash support, kinetic scrolling, multiwindow in multitask mode – […]

Nokia to make Android Netbook for 2010?

| June 27, 2009 | 6 Replies

Here’s me thinking that Nokia would be too stubborn and stick with just Symbian or Linux for their netbook OS, but it seems Nokia’s venturing out and dipping their toes into Google Android (though, powered by ARM and not Intel). As a fail-safe, Nokia’s collaboration with Intel will see an alternative non-Android netbook. Although it […]
