08/11/2011, When you want to go hands-free in your conversations over a cell phone while driving, there is no better way than to settle for a Bluetooth headset – of course, there is also the wired option if you so desire, but for total freedom, the Nokia BH-112 Bluetooth headset might be just your cup of tea. Not only is it small, compact and works well enough for something that retails […]
08/10/2011, What you see above are touted to be upcoming Nokia handsets that are powered by the Windows Phone platform from Microsoft – and not MeeGo, as Nokia seems hell bent on stopping sales of MeeGo-powered smartphones in the US and the UK. The image was sent by someone who claims to be from Microsoft, albeit using an ovi.com email. No idea on whether it is real, or is it just […]
08/10/2011, We know that Nokia’s N9 smartphone will not be arriving Stateside, and the same fate has befallen over folks living in the UK – which is rather sad, since the MeeGo love will not spread across both countries. Not only that, insult is added to the injury as Nokia plans to halt sales of all Symbian and feature phones in the region – as Nokia starts to focus on its […]
08/09/2011, The Nokia RM-744, or as some might call it the Nokia 701 Helen, is actually the final handset from the new bunch of Symbian handsets to arrive at the FCC and pick up its approval in the process. This model will run on the Symbian Belle operating system version – which is actually the update for Symbian Anna. Just what does the Nokia 701 Helen brings to the table? For […]
08/09/2011, In an interview with AllthingsD, Chris Weber (President of Nokia USA) has said that Nokia will effectively end its Symbian line of products in the United States, to focus primarily on Windows Phone 7 (WP7) handset. For Nokia, this is a “do or die” situation where the company is betting the farm on this WP7 smartphone push. By doing so, Nokia recognizes a new reality for smartphones: whoever wins in […]
08/09/2011, For those of you in the US waiting to get your hands on Nokia’s first (and last) MeeGo phone, the N9 – we’ve got some bad news for you. The folks over at Engadget recently got in touch with Nokia to determine a shipping date for the phone, and they’ve just received the terrible news: the N9 won’t be available in the USA – at least not at launch date, […]
08/08/2011, If you were wondering whether you’d get to play with your favorite feathered friends and slingshot on Nokia’s upcoming MeeGo phone, you don’t have to worry anymore. The folks over at MeeGo Experts have shot a video showing Angry Birds running on the Nokia N9 and it sure looks beautiful on the phone’s AMOLED screen. The game translates over to the platform really well, running smoothly without a hitch.
08/07/2011, Nokia is known as for making the world’s greenest phones and is consistently making an effort to encourage recycling and environmental-friendly behavior, with publicity stints like the mobile phone man. Well, the Eco profile for its upcoming phone, the N9, has been released online, and we get to see how green this MeeGo phone really is. Judging by what was in the Eco profile, we’re impressed.
08/05/2011, Looking for a fresh new game to play on your Nokia Symbian phone? If you’re tired of playing complicated, story-driven games on and you’re looking for an alternative, simple minded game that you can pick up any time just to pass the time, you might want to give Bounce It a shot. My Nokia Blog recently shot a video demonstration for the game and it sure looks like a fun […]
08/04/2011, Despite all the ongoing patent infringement litigations and lawsuits that are being served to Android OEMs recently, it looks like nothing can halt the sales of devices running the operating system. comScore has reported that Android is now on 40.1% of all smartphones used by subscribers over the age of 13 in the country. While the increase in growth has been lower than what it’s been experiencing in the previous few […]
08/04/2011, The Nokia N9 is being released in 49 days. Yes, it’s true. And if you’re wondering how I found out, a quick visit to the Nokia N9 Swedish website will tell you. In fact, at the time of writing, we have 49 days, 5 hours, 44 minutes and 25 seconds left until the release of the Nokia N9, Nokia’s first (and last) commercially available MeeGo phone (the N950 is a […]
08/04/2011, While patent infringement lawsuits aren’t new, the intensity and frequency seems to have increased in the past couple of years. Now it appears that Nokia is suing a Shanghai-based company, Huaqin Telecom Technology Co. Ltd, for apparently infringing upon on of their patents.
08/01/2011, You know the ridiculous MHz race back in the early 1990s with all the 386 and 486 processors? Well, the same can also be said of cell phone processors, although not up to the extent of the 80×86 processor era. Nokia’s latest Nokia 500 smartphone which was launched just yesterday was touted to come with a 1GHz chip – but it seems as though you do not really get 1GHz […]
08/01/2011, Can’t wait to get your hands on Symbian Belle? We can’t help you in that department, but what we can do is whet your appetite for the operating system even more by showing you more pictures of it. The folks over at My Nokia Blog reported on some pictures found on mobile4arab.com and were nice enough to share them. Judging by the screenshots so far, Symbian Belle is looking pretty […]
