03/06/2014, So word on the street has it that Nokia could be hosting an event on the 19th of April. It is unclear what Nokia will be announcing, but given that at MWC 2014 the company did not reveal any new Lumia handsets, chances are this event could be where Nokia might make some Windows Phone related announcements. That being said, we have also heard that there are several Nokia Lumia […]

03/06/2014, Earlier at MWC 2014, Nokia announced several new handsets. They unveiled the new Nokia X series of Android devices, as well a couple of new Asha handsets as well. However as the rumors had suggested ahead of the event, Nokia’s announcement certainly did not reveal any new Lumia devices. So when is Nokia planning on unveiling new Lumia handsets? Well according to a recent tweet by @evleaks, he has suggested […]
03/05/2014, Gaming on our mobile phones has certainly come a long way from titles such as Sudoku and Snake which were some of the only options that mobile phones had back in the day. Nowadays we’re playing games with impressive graphics, like the Infinity Blade franchise, N.O.V.A 3, and Shadowgun just to name a few. There are smartphone users out there who treat their mobile phone as portable consoles, so the […]
03/05/2014, Much has already been said and written about the $7.17 billion Microsoft-Nokia deal, through which the former absorbs the latter’s devices and services division, but a new report published by Businessweek today offers a glimpse of what happened behind the scenes prior to the deal being announced. It is claimed that Microsoft founder, former CEO and ex-Chairman of the board Bill Gates was staunchly opposed to the idea of this […]
03/05/2014, At MWC 2014, Nokia “surprised” everyone by launching their series of Nokia X Android devices. The lineup currently consists of a trio of handsets in the form of the Nokia X, the Nokia X+, and the Nokia XL. Oddly enough Nokia has decided that these handsets would not be gracing the shelves of regions such as the US, Canada, Japan, and South Korea. We’re not sure why that is given […]
03/03/2014, If there is one feature that Windows Phone is known for, it would be its unique user interface which relies on tiles to provide users with information at a glance. It is pretty clever, unique, and actually pretty neat in terms of layout. In fact Nokia’s X series of Android handsets appear to be running a forked version of Android that sports a Metro-ish UI, but interestingly enough it seems […]
03/03/2014, The $7.17 billion acquisition deal of Nokia’s devices and services division still hasn’t been closed, Microsoft is having to jump through various legal and regulatory hoops before it can finally absorb the division. Even though regulators in the U.S. and the European Union found no reason to believe that this acquisition could result in an unfavorable business environment for rivals, China’s Ministry of Commerce is pushing ahead with its anti-monopoly review […]
03/03/2014, One of the most hotly anticipated devices set to come out of China in the very near future is Oppo’s next flagship smartphone. The company has been teasing the Find 7 for quite some time now and already there have been dozens of rumors about the device. Even though all kinds of possible specifications have been thrown around, nothing is known for sure as yet as the company hasn’t made […]
03/03/2014, So it seems that Samsung made quite a splash for themselves at the Oscars. It seems that the South Korean tech giant provided some celebrities with new Samsung phones, presumably to take photos with and to crow about the wonders of Samsung’s technology. While television talk show host, Ellen Degeneres’ selfie turned out to be quite a hit (and thus a hit for Samsung too by extension), it seems that […]
03/03/2014, Is Nokia done with Lumia devices now that they have announced a new series of Android phones? Hardly. In fact we’d doubt Microsoft would even let that happen! That being said, thanks to a recent tweet by @evleaks, it seems that we can look forward to a new Windows Phone handset in the future which is currently known by its codename “Martini”.
02/28/2014, Do take this bit of news with a pinch of salt, as nothing official has been released just yet concerning the Nokia Lumia 630. Sure, we have seen the Nokia Lumia 630 product sheet leaked yesterday which dropped a hint concerning a 4.5” display, but here are more details that touches on the rest of the hardware specifications. Also known as the Nokia “Moneypenny”, the Nokia Lumia 630’s most recent […]
02/28/2014, BlackBerry’s once proprietary BBM service has been pretty successful as an app in recent memory, where over 50 million new registrations were achieved from both iPhone and Android stables within the first three months of multi-platform availability. Well, it seems that the BBM app will also be making its way to the Nokia X and Windows Phone platforms that will further grow this exciting user base.
02/27/2014, Nokia might be in the process of wrapping up its devices and services division and getting ready to drop it in Microsoft’s lap, but that doesn’t mean it has been sitting idly by, leaving the market to fend for itself. Earlier this week it unveiled its first ever Android phones, and it is believed that Nokia still has a couple of Windows Phone devices up its sleeve. The Nokia Lumia […]
