MWC – Hands on with the Nokia N1 Tablet

So today we finally managed to track down the elusive Nokia N1 after searching for it for days James managed to find one and snap some close up shots. Immediately after he told me I was up out  of my chair like a greased whippet and went

Earlier on today we were at the Microsoft event where Stephen Elop and co announced the Lumia 640, the 640 XL and a bluetooth keyboard that actually works with Windows Phone. At the time details about the devices were sparse. We’ve since had the official press release

MWC – Nokia Event

With Nokia now now longer able to make phones due to the agreement with Microsoft I am not really sure what to expect here . I am hoping to see the European availability of Nokia N1 annonced and an update to Z Launcher. Hopefully there will be

CES – Nokia 215 announced. Welcome back, Microsoft smartphone

Anyone remember Microsoft Smartphone 2002? How about the Orange SPV? It was a honest-to-goodness phone, with a numeric keypad and a colour screen running a Microsoft mobile OS. Now, just 13 years later, Microsoft have announced their most affordable internet-ready smartphone which runs… err.. the Nokia Series

It seems there might be a Lumia 1020 successor after all

Cast your mind back a few months, I wrote this article here where I basically questioned what was going on with the Microsoft and the successor to the Lumia 1020. Well over the weekend things have changed, some leaked images show what looks like a metallic new

Cortana puts this guy in a spin.

Well this guy just takes the biscuit. There was me, pedalling on a mountain bike from London to Paris a few months ago for charity. I was pretty impressed with myself, but no – this guy has done a loop-the-loop on his bike. Pah… not fair. Microsoft,

Nokia Z Launcher beta is now available on the Google Play Store

A while back Nokia shocked people by making an Android Launcher, around about the same time as they released a few Android phones. At that stage they were only available by signing up and downloading the apk file and manually installing it. Well now they’ve gone and

Nokia Lumia 735 review

Nokia would like as many people as possible to get a Windows Phone in their hands and enjoy the experience. In fact Microsoft would also like that as it helps build out their platform even further, which is why the two companies working together under the Microsoft brand

Nokia. Thank you for the memories.

Bear with me here, because I’m in a rather strange mood after listening to a pirate radio DJ shouting “Oh my days” several times this morning and “Oi Oi” quite a lot. I think it’s gone to my head. Nokia, as you’ll know already, is dead. We

Surely it’s about time for a new 41 Megapixel camera from Nokia

In my eyes the modern camera phone market things are becoming a little bit stagnant. Most new phones arrive to a fanfare of propaganda about how the camera performs amazingly in low light, when being moved around and that it takes video unlike any other device, ever.

Samsung were paying quite a handsome amount to Microsoft

Hands on with the Lumia 930 camera

A decent camera is something most of us want, myself included. Let’s not forget that we used to use small 5 megapixel lenses that would never be able to replace a point and shoot camera. Thankfully Nokia were one company who decided to focus on this area,

Microsoft continues killing off Nokia name

It seems that Microsoft have started the process of moving the business and branding from Nokia to Microsoft directly. If you head over to Nokia’s UK website you now get redirected to Microsoft’s own website. This doesn’t come as a complete surprise, there have been rumours that

Lumia 930 free wireless kit offer back on

For those who are happy to forsake the Glance and Micro-SD features on the soon-to-be-available Lumia 830, the superior-specced (is this a word?) Lumia 930 has had a price drop and the offer of a free wireless kit revitalised.  When it was first released in the summer
