Tips

Update: This is the new tips page. The old one has been so fortunate with many tips from MNB readers but the page became too bulky and unresponsive. Thank you to all those tippers on that page and apologies for the inconvenience as the tips page had slowed down. Thanks to those who gave us feedback about it.

The older tips are visible at: http://mynokiablog.com/tipsarchive

Got a tip or article suggestion you’d like to share with MNB’s readers?

Emailed tips may be published faster than the comments as that still currently relies of manual checking. We’ll credit the name/username you give us or can leave you anonymous if you wish.

    Too bad Marc is not presenting Nokia. He would be the ultimate rock star type instead of the typical Nokia presenters.

      It would be interesting to hear how the dev feels about releasing app using qt to multiple platforms. He probably customizes the UI for each os.

    Nokia added maps for Serbia and Israel, after 4+ years of their removal (since they moved to Navteq-exclusive maps). Hooray!

    http://conversations.nokia.com/2013/01/25/the-quest-to-make-maps-more-precise-and-to-map-the-whole-world/

    Still not available for N9/N900, tho, but they are available online.

    This could be good for WP ecosystem:

    “Microsoft to launch WP8 reference design in mid-2013, say sources”
    in other words, it should be easier for smaller manufacturer to release devices. Nokia should still have edge with their exclusive apps etc.

    I knew I saw an N8 on “Pretty Little Liars”! Granted, another character was using it so it seems that props are interchangeable on this show. Amazing that they even used this phone as it is not that known in the US:

    I don’t know if this has been posted before, but there’s some headline claiming that Nokia is receiving a whopping 1 BILLION and bit mote dollars for developing the strongest material available.

    Vertu to release their first Android luxury smartphone: http://www.gottabemobile.com/2013/01/31/vertu-ti-nokias-first-android-smartphone/

    I know that Nokia only owns 10% of the company, but I feel it still should belong here. What’s more interesting is that the phone was developed under Nokia’s full ownership – and was designated with an RM-828V model number, similar to Nokia’s convention & Lumia’s model numbers.

    Nokia MeeGo fans will appreciate UI elements of BlackBerry 10

    Summary: Anyone who used MeeGo will quickly see that BlackBerry 10 has many of those swiping design elements in its new UI. MeeGo went farther in some respects, but there are much better prospects for more extensive application development with BlackBerry than there are with MeeGo now that Nokia killed that project.

    Nokia offering Super Monkey Ball 2 as a free app for all Lumia users – it’s not the Xbox Live title with achievements ($2.99), but it is free:

    ^wow stylinred they’re going pretty dramatic on that ad (which is not bad at all) but claiming that they invented smartphones? Come on…

    I knew that there has been a PhD dissertation on Nokia’s strategic choises. A tweet by ex-Nokian JP Helminen confirms that it is also very valid ;)
