The purist amongst mobile photography would still crown the Nokia 808 PureView to have the best of the best in still image quality in most conditions. It’s not relying on fancy/innovative powerful computational photography, just Nokia’s engineers working on the best hardware that they could cram into a phone. It still has the biggest sensor […]

(Rant that was delayed due to exams), Ok let’s start….. This past month alone Nokia launched two new “Hero/Flagship” devices, the 925 being the one with the larger spotlight. One consistent comment I’ve read is “they’re the same damn phone!!”; and let’s face it, short of an extra lens in the 925 and a Xenon flash […]

Engadget reports that Nokia will be shipping Dual Core Symbian Devices next year with a revamped UI. Well, Symbian has always been open about its roadmap. Back in February this year they mentioned this in exact detail (when they were still Symbian Foundation and Symbian^N was still the norm). Now Nokia has taken Symbian development […]

If you’re not familiar with the name Tomi Ahonen then you should be. Calling Tomi simply one of the best mobile industry analysts would not do him justice and is one of the rare few to see the light at the frequently mentioned “doomed” Nokia tunnel. In this still major transition stage at Espoo, it […]

Rant: Fixing Nokia's Symbian Touch Camera UI – Perfecting the Nokia N8 Camera experience

| November 13, 2010 | 15 Replies

The Nokia N8 undeniably has the best phone camera on the market. It also has a pedigree of great flexibility in terms of camera options  – white balance, colour tone, camera grids, scene modes, ISO, exposure, contrast, and sharpness (note lack of continuous shooting mode as seen in the likes of the N95). However, like […]

It’s not all gloom and doom as “analysts” and certain blogs would have us believe. Today, 22nd July 2010, Nokia reported Q2 earnings.
