Many of you mentioned that Nokia had a great ecosystem before the deal with Microsoft and that […]

Tommi Laukkanen is at it again, this time taking on the Facebook app (which no one else, not even Nokia have done a good job on. It pains me how terribly overlooked the Facebook app has been on Nokias. You would think it was some hobo social network with 5 people on it the way […]

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 […]

The Nokia N900 is renowned for its multitasking prowess. Not just in terms of how many activities it can juggle but also in the contextual grid interface of LIVE windows.   Here’s another look – a single column view.

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 […]
