Microsoft are really pushing Windows Phone’s profile with these adverts. Regardless of what the phone can actually do, or truths behind it, what is most important in the adverts is that it drums down your message to the viewer that your product is something DESIRABLE, something LIKEABLE, something You’d go out and BUY. All other […]

This specification is the result of a consortium of mobile device and component manufacturers who decided that current implementations of video output on mobile devices were simply not enough. The end result is the creation of […]

Here’s another side by side split screen comparison between the Nokia N8 and this time the Samsung Wave. This is from gsmarena07 The wave, despite supposedly recording at 30FPS looks jerkier and less fluid in movement than what’s labelled as the N8. (Noticeable in the car portion) [YOUTUBE=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMODvvrQDcw]] Next – iPhone 4. I don’t understand […]

It’s in four parts. “Specs, Maps, Navigation and Unofficial Speed Test” User Interface Gallery and YouTube Browser (oh the woes).

The case of the Nokia N8 teaches us to be weary of extremely early, leaked ranting “reviews” of prototype, unannounced phones. Remember the lack of info o the powerful broadcom GPU? Which we now know is class leading? The putting down of the supposedly standard, nothing special camera? Which we know now to be the […]

TestMobile compares the Nokia N8′s AMOLED with the Samsung Galaxy S’ eye melting Super AMOLED. Though of course the camera could increase/decrease the differences (adjusting to brightness of one screen, affecting look of another), disregarding this, in the photo below you can see that the deep blacks and brighter whites in the Super AMOLED display.  […]

The Nokia X8 – or at least how the X6 should have looked were it to dispense of the space wastages top and bottom of the screen. Will all future touch screen devices inevitably just be slabs of rectangular displays? [e.g. HTC Touch HD2] I’m all for it – especially the seamless flat glass fronted […]
