  1. Microsoft has created a new "How To" site that teaches you how to use your phone like an expert. Included on the site is a number of videos that reveal how to personalize your phone, how to use Cortana, how to play music and games, how to use the camera, and more. This is a timely move by Microsoft, since the software giant has just started rolling out the Lumia Blue update for Lumia phones. This includes Windows Phone 8.1, and thus, there might be some questions about new features such as Cortana. The virtual personal assistant is available in the U.S. for Windows Phone 8.1 users, and wi
  2. A tweet sent by Cortana's program manager, Marcus Ash, reveals that inside of two weeks, a developer preview for Cortana will be available. Keep in mind that the only Windows Phone 8.1 users in the U.K. that will be able to see and use Cortana, will be those who registered as developers with Microsoft. For the rest of you, the personal assistant will be unavailable for now, unless a hack is devised, of course. Right now, only those in the U.S. with Windows Phone 8.1 are able to use Cortana. In his conversations on Twitter, program manager Ash said that while developing Cortana, Microsoft lea
  3. Not too long ago, Microsoft-owned Nokia decided to try a new approach in order to be a bit more competitive in this app-driven market. With that, they released the Android-powered Nokia X and Nokia X2 models. While not “Google Android,” these emerging market devices allowed users to sideload standard Android apps, as well as connect to Nokia’s (and Opera’s) Android app store. This allowed users looking for a Nokia device to enjoy a much wider app catalog than what is available on Windows Phone. Now, this is likely to be coming to a close, as Microsoft refocuses its portfolio to better position
  4. Lumia Cyan is set to roll out for existing handsets all across the globe, and Nokia even updated its software update page for those who want to know about its progress for their region. For now, users enrolled in the free Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers program should keep checking as an update is rolling out for the preview with build 12400. The update doesn't appear to be a big one, and does not bring any feature that's a part of the Cyan update. The update will start rolling out starting 1PM ET, so make sure you check for the update if you're rocking the developers preview.
  5. Microsoft has posted their official changelog for the GDR1 update on the Windows Phone Blog. Although it misses a number of things specific to OEMs and carriers, as well as no mention of the improved Bluetooth stack and IE updates, it does list a number of improvements specific to the end user experience. Windows Phone 8.1 Update OS version: 8.10.14141.167 or 8.10.14147.180 FoldersFolders let you organize your Start screen the way you want. Just push one Tile on top of another one to create a folder and get going. MessagingCombine multiple text messages into one, and then forward them to someo
  6. Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 was announced last week by Microsoft and includes a number of new enhancements and features which further align the mobile operating system with competing platforms. Today, Microsoft has released this new update for those who have registered themselves in the Preview for Developers. The Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 preview for developers has started rolling out now, which means it should hit your device momentarily. You can check to see if the update is available by opening Settings and navigating to Phone update > check for updates. Those in on the preview w
  7. Although Nokia had a lot to announce a few weeks ago in Abu Dhabi, one of those devices not mentioned was the Nokia Lumia 929, destined for Verizon. That device is said to be in carrier testing right now and it could be released between Thanksgiving and the beginning of next year. The Nokia Lumia 929 is a custom phone built for Verizon, featuring a 5-inch 1080P AMOLED display. It’s in many ways just a bigger, more powerful Lumia 928, as it features a Quad-Core Snapdragon 800 CPU and updated internals. Specifications Qualcomm Quad-core Snapdragon 800 at 2.2 GHz5 inch AMOLED display, 1080 x 192
  8. It looks like Nokia is about to build an 8-inch device, if the trust-worthy @evleaks is to be believed. @evleaks has a long history of leaking credible Nokia content, the Finnish company is building an 8-inch tablet that will run Windows RT and is codenamed the ‘Illusionist’. Little else is known, but it should not come as a major surprise that Nokia is going to be building another tablet in the smaller class size to help it compete in the low-cost tablet market. Seeing at it runs Windows RT, just like its bigger brother the 2520, makes a lot of sense even though Bay Trail tablets
  9. Since the launch of its first two Windows Phones in October 2011, Nokia has expanded its smartphone offering into an astonishing range of devices, from the brilliant and ultra-affordable Lumia 520, all the way up to the giant Lumia 1520 phablet. We’ve counted no less than twenty distinct Lumia handsets so far: the 505, 510, 520, 521, 610, 620, 625, 710, 720, 800, 810, 820, 822, 900, 920, 925, 928, 1020, 1320 and 1520 have all gone on sale or been announced by the company, with more still rumoured to appear. There have also been localised versions of some of these devices created for the Chine
  10. A tweet from evleaks proves that like us, the reliable source is slaving over a hot QWERTY over the weekend. But even more important is the content of the tweet which is a list of alleged new code names for upcoming Nokia devices. A couple of names on the list have a "Bond, James Bond" connection such as Goldfinger and Moneypenney. The other names are Normandy, Phantom and Spinel. Considering that Spinel is a magnesium aluminum mineral with the symbol MgAl2O4, this could be the code name for an aluminum clad Windows Phone handset. The other names lend themselves to a number of various
  11. The Chinese variant of the upcoming Nokia Lumia 525 has received certification in China. The Nokia Lumia 526 passed through TENAA which is China's version of the FCC. The Nokia Lumia 525 is the Finnish OEM's replacement for the hugely successful Nokia Lumia 520 and Nokia Lumia 521. The Nokia Lumia 520 has sold over 5 million units, and the T-Mobile branded Nokia Lumia 521 was largely responsible for the platform's gain in U.S. market share in the third quarter. Specs for the Nokia Lumia 525 recently leaked, and we expect the Chinese variant to offer the same 4 inch LCD screen with resolutio
  12. A judge has determined that Samsung probably violated a court-ordered agreement to keep Apple documents secret, the latest snit in the epic patent battle between the companies that started in the summer of 2012. Judge Paul Grewal asked to look over the documents himself last month. Now, "having finally crawled out from under the boxes," he says it does look like the order was breached and "sanctions against Samsung and its attorneys are warranted." Apple gave Samsung copies of confidential patent licensing agreements with Nokia, Ericsson, Sharp, and Philips as part of the legal discovery proc
  13. There's already been rumors that Nokia is working on an 8-inch tablet device, which would follow the company's recently announced 10.1 inch Lumia 2520 with Windows RT. Today, a new rumor claims that the 8-inch tablet model has a real name, the Lumia 2020, and it will be revealed by Nokia as part of their Mobile World Congress activities. NokiaPowerUser reports, via an unnamed tipster, that the 8-inch Lumia 2020 "will run on Snapdragon 800 and will have a 1080p resolution display. It will be faster and have higher PPI display than Lumia 2520 and will come with stylus support." The same tips
  14. Two years after hitching its fate to Microsoft's Windows Phone software, a withered Nokia collapsed into the arms of the U.S. software giant, agreeing to sell its main handset business for 5.44 billion euros ($7.2 billion). Nokia will also license its patents and mapping services to Microsoft. Nokia shares jumped 45% on news of the deal. The purchase is set to be completed in early 2014, when about 32,000 Nokia employees will transfer to Microsoft. It will represent the second most expensive acquisition in Microsoft's 38-year history, ranking behind an $8.5 billion purchase of Internet callin
  15. HTC just can't catch a break these days. The company has been in rough financial shape for a while now, despite churning out stellar products like the HTC One. One of the company's biggest threats is Nokia, which coincidentally has one of the biggest patent portfolios in the mobile space. The Finish company has won a patent lawsuit against HTC where Justice Arnold of the England and Wales High Court has ordered an injunction against the Tainawese manufacturer's products, which are in violation of Nokia's EP0998024 patent on "modular structure for a transmitter and a mobile station". HTC's arg

    Nokia Lumia 929 Leaks

    The Nokia Lumia 929 could turn out to be the most important Windows Phone model once it is launched. Expected to be packed with nearly the same specs you can find on the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, the Lumia 929 will feature a more comfortable 5 inch screen. As a result, the model might catch the attention of those who normally wouldn't chase after a phablet due to its size. Looking at it another way, the Nokia Lumia 929 is the Windows Phone response to the bevy of Android models with 5 inch, 1080 x 1920 resolution screens. And like most of those Android units, the Nokia Lumia 929 is believed
  17. It looks like Microsoft isn't going to have too difficult a time in getting through its massive purchase of Nokia's mobile devices and services business. The boards each voted through the $7.2 billion acquisition, and now the governmental review process is moving along quite well. Just a couple days ago, the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) approved the deal "unconditionally". Both the Motorola acquisition and the Waze acquisition by Google brought much slower approval processes as investigations took place. But, Microsoft doesn't have Google's standing in the mobile market, so its purcha

    Nokia unveils the Lumia 525

    The 525 is destined to become the successor to the Lumia 520, the most popular Windows Phone so far and, at one point, the most popular of any Windows device on sale. That makes it an incredibly important product, both in Nokia's range and in the broader hardware offering across the platform, which in turn makes it all the more curious that Nokia outed the new handset by doing nothing more than posting a product page on its site. The Lumia 525 sports a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, along with 8GB of onboard storage, and a microSD slot (supporting cards up to 64GB) to expand
  19. The second Windows Phone phablet, the Nokia Lumia 1320, launched Friday in China with the device headed to Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore in the coming weeks. Some of the specs on the far superior Nokia Lumia 1520 can be found on this device, such as the 6 inch Gorilla Glass screen. But instead of the 1080 x 1920 resolution found on the Lumia 1520, which provides it with an outstanding pixel density of 368ppi, the 720 x 1280 resolution on the Lumia 1320 works out to a 245ppi pixel density. Powered by a dual-core 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU (as opposed to the quad-core 2.2 GHz Qual
  20. After failing to purchase the patents previously owned by the now defunct Nortel in 2012, Google is going after the large group of companies that currently holds those rights. The company filed a lawsuit on Monday, claiming that the Rockstar patent consortium has "placed a cloud on Google's Android platform" with their ownership and enforcement of their properties. According to GigaOM, Google feels that the Rockstar group, which includes Microsoft, Apple and BlackBerry, is using its over 4,000 patents to unfairly threaten mobile device makers that use the Android OS. Google seems to be pa
  21. A published report out of China indicates that a "mini" version of the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet is on the way. The device will reportedly be named the Nokia Lumia 1520 V and will feature a 4.3 inch screen, down sharply from the 6 inch glass found on the full-sized version of the phone. However, the screen on the "V" will keep the same 1080 x 1920 resolution employed on the larger model. That could result in one of the highest pixel density figures on a smartphone. The rest of the specs include 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. A 14MP PureView camera is on back and a 3000mAh batte

    Microsoft’s toughest choice

    Never mind Bing and Xbox. What the heck is Microsoft’s new CEO going to do about its feature phone unit that is churning out 200 million low-end handsets a year? The dilemma here is that Nokia’s handset unit has two very disparate parts: feature phones and smartphones. Feature phone demand is now dropping rapidly as low-end Android smartphones are beginning to hit the $100 unsubsidized price. That was the segment of Nokia’s feature phone business that kept the whole low-end business profitable: The $80 to $100 premium feature phones that offered tolerable camera performance, relatively tigh
  23. Nokia and HTC ended their prolonged legal war with a patent and technology collaboration agreement. The partnership ends all pending patent litigation between the two companies. Its full terms are confidential. According to the official press release, HTC will make payments to Nokia, but the exact amounts haven't been disclosed. The Finnish company on the other hand will gain access to HTC’s LTE patent portfolio, thus further expanding its own expertise. Furthermore, the companies will look into future technology collaboration opportunities. Unsurprisingly, representatives from both
  24. The Nokia X, aka Normandy, is out in the open again – spy shots reveal a device with looks that won't be out of place in the Asha line. That's exactly where the Nokia X is headed allegedly, now that Nokia has sold its smartphone business and the Asha line just can't compete with dirt-cheap Androids. The alleged specs for the device are a 4" WVGA screen, dual-core 1.2GHz processor with 512MB RAM, 5MP camera, 4GB of expandable storage and optional dual-SIM. It's essentially an Android rendition of the Lumia 520. It won't be mainline Android though but rather a Nokia customization
  25. Robin Sinha, January 24, 2014 Nokia has confirmed its presence at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2014 event, which is scheduled from 24 to 27 February in Barcelona. The Finnish firm has dropped an invitation for a press conference to be held on February 24, at 0730 (GMT). Just what does Nokia have in store for its MWC 2014 event? A range of handsets have been rumoured since November last year, out of which, we expect most of them to show up at the event. In total, six Nokia handsets are rumoured to get revealed at the event, including a few large-screen smartphones, or phablets. Back in
