Nokia C7 coming to Canada with PR2.0? & More Symbian handsets for USA.

Reader, “deep space bar” commented that the Nokia C7 is coming to Canada with WINDMOBILE exclusively with PR2.0. Yeah, I misread that also as Windows Mobile. Mobile Syrup also confirms that Wind Mobile is getting the Nokia C7 but does not mention PR2.0. It would make sense as T-Mobile is picking up the Nokia C7 […]

How do you use your smartphone?

How do you use your smartphone?

| March 4, 2011 | 29 Replies

A lot has been made in the blogosphere about Symbian smartphones occupying a different category of devices than the Android and iOS powered superphones. In a sense, there seems to be a lot pointing towards this being true, with many Symbian users buying and using their devices much as they would dumbphones. Not because the devices […]

What Symbian features could you not live without?

| March 1, 2011 | 49 Replies

A lot has been made of Nokia’s recent decision to eschew their current smartphone ecosystem strategy in favor of a Microsoft based approach. Having done a detailed impressions post and published a list of my gripes with the current state of the Windows Phone software and ecosystem, I felt it’d be important to gauge the […]

Shocking is an understatement. Yes, the above image is the echoing sentiment across many Nokia/Symbian/Meego fans.Honestly,I had been […]

The Nokia Loop App that’s free for the N8 and C7 isn’t just for recording odd random sounds to pool into a track, you can also make actual music with actual instruments! (Yeah, let’s not get into the debate of what music is, you know what I mean :p) chrismcrowe has taken his N8, downloaded […]

My Dream Nokia #11: Nokia N11: 3D Camera, Dual Core, Dual boot MeeGo 1.2/Symbian Game Phone – Nokia N11

Let’s start 2011 with MyDreamNokia #11. This comes with a 11 photo gallery showing off a concept MeeGo Game Phone by shihuzaan. There’s no actual name, though it is labelled the usual N0 for protos (that or CO in preproduction stuff). I thought I’d call it N11. Design wise, it resembles the N81/iPhone 4 but […]

4 Million Nokia N8′s sold says Bloomberg: Symbian^3 on track for 50 million?

4 Million Nokia N8′s sold says Bloomberg: Symbian^3 on track for 50 million?

| December 29, 2010 | 28 Replies

The 12MP Symbian Flagship, has apparently reached 4 million sales. I don’t know how accurate these figures are. The last time Nokia numbers were publicised, they were wrong (N900 selling only 100,000 when that was the figure in a few weeks – a geek “niche” device for tinkering, not for the masses which Nokia claims […]

Poll: IF Nokia Smartphones could have ANY but only ONE OS, which should it be?

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 Fig-Rig is a little like your Flowpod or Merlin Steadicam holders – you attach a video camera (or any device capable of recording video) and using its magical powers cuts out all that jerkiness in motion and produces silky smooth professional looking videos. It’s useful whether you’re using professional grade dedicated video cameras or […]
