A lot of negativity has been made of Nokia’s decision to adopt the Windows Phone software ecosystem as their primary smartphone platform going forward. A decision seen as frivolous and ignorant to some while seen as a last ditch move by what’s seen as an utterly failing company ( a sentiment I disagree with). The […]

(I like seeing masses of phones :D) Yesterday, if you’ve been following #ovigoodthings on twitter you may have seen these pics already. (Thanks everyone for lending […]
