  1. Although Satya Nadella is being widely praised as a terrific choice as Microsoft’s new CEO, he won’t be completely free of Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer, his two predecessors who will stay on at the company as a technology advisor and a board member, respectively. The very well-connected Bob Cringely writes that that Nadella would be wise to keep Gates at his side early in his tenure because he’ll need Gates to help him to get Ballmer to back off if he decides to diverge from the outgoing CEO’s plan to remake Microsoft into a devices and services company. “Ballmer still owns 333 million Micro
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  9. Sony is dumping its PC business, and while that may appear like it will be repudiating its relationship with Microsoft, it may not be the case, after all. Sony CEO, Kazuo Hirai has hinted at something we saw coming already, Sony’s inclination towards making a Windows Phone. Let's address the elephant in the room first. It didn't come as a huge surprise when Sony pulled out of the PC business, as it had become a black hole for the company's money. Losing one of its biggest OEM partners wasn't something Nadella would have wanted to happen in his first week as CEO. To make matters worse, Hirai
  10. 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
  11. The yet to be announced, Nokia Lumia 929 went on sale in China. The top-end Windows Phone device is currently available for purchase in the popular online marketplace TaoBao for ¥3800 ($628). Also known as Nokia Lumia Icon, the smartphone is shown in a number of live photos, proudly wearing its Verizon Wireless branding. This is hardly a surprise, as the handset is bound to replace the Nokia Lumia 928 when it goes official on the Big Red. In addition to the host of live photos, the seller reveals the full specs of the Nokia Lumia 929. They include Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2GB
  12. This device will give us a good idea of the true demand of Windows Phone since it will be chock full of high end specs, but with a more pocketable 5 inch screen than the 6 inch glass found on the Nokia Lumia 1520. With specs similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4 we should get a rough idea of how far the platform has come. That is, until the next-gen top shelf Android models get released. The Nokia Lumia Icon got a quick release on Verizon's website before being pulled. The model was supposed to have already been launched, but there is a rumor that it has been delayed until next month due to Mi
  13. The recently announced Lumia 525 (a version of the Lumia 520 with 1GB RAM) has just made it to select markets putting an end to our guessing about its price. The surprise is that it's got an even more cutthroat pricing than the Lumia 520 right out of the gate. Online Chinese phone retailer Tmall has priced the 525 at ¥629, which is the equivalent of around $100.Amazon China, which sells both the Lumia 525 and Lumia 520 has the first listed as ¥699 ($115), making it the cheaper of the two despite its better specs.These prices are very appealing, considering what buyers get: a 4-inch display wit
  14. The geeks of mobile, and especially the Windows Phone fans, are eagerly awaiting Microsoft's Cortana voice-controlled assistant. That's not only because it will finally be an answer to Google Now and Apple's Siri, so their friends with iPhones or Android handsets will have one less reason to brag, but also because Microsoft is big in artificial intelligence, voice recognition and simultaneous translation research. Whether or not the amazing R&D demonstrations that you see in the embedded video below, will be transferred successfully to Cortana, remains to be seen, and likely very soon.
  15. The handsets are said to be loaded, with the Lumia 1820 sporting a 5.2 inch, 2K display, Snapdragon 805, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, and large 3400 mAh battery, as well as a camera with Nokia's post-shot focusing technology and Xenon flash. The design is said to be similar to the Lumia 928, which is certainly slimmer than the current flagships Lumia 1020. The other one, Lumia 1525, and will feature the same hardware specs and 2K screen resolution, but come with a 6 inch panel and 25 or 30 MP camera on the back, offering some sort of solar charging display panel.

  16. While BlackBerry CEO John Chen has recently confirmed that the Canadian OEM will be offering BES for Windows Phone, it seems that the beleaguered manufacturer is not going to offer its BBM for the platform. The messaging application has already been offered to iOS and Android users and large numbers of both downloaded and installed BBM on their phones. The apps allow iOS and Android users to send and receive messages using PIN numbers. Eventually, they will be able to make phone calls, engage in video chat, and populate discussion groups. David Proulx, BlackBerry’s Senior Director of BBM B
  17. It's finally happening! After being announced at the Nokia Lumia 1520 unveil last year, the highly awaited Lumia Black update is set to begin its rollout starting today. In a press release from Nokia, the company claims the update will begin rolling out today for Lumia 1020 and 925 owners, with other devices being updated within the coming weeks. The Lumia Black update brings a number of new features to the table, including a yet be be seen feature called App Folder which allows users to group apps on their Start Screens. Other features include Glance Screen 2.0, which now displays more t
  18. We have some pretty awful news about T-Mobile and Verizon subscribers who have a Lumia 810 or 822. Apparently Nokia has completed the Lumia Black firmware update for the Lumia 810 and Lumia 822, but the carriers won't push it to the users. This info comes from a chat with Nokia's Customer support, so it's not like is fully official just yet. According to the user's chat with the Nokia representative, the update is not happening and Verizon is only listing it as Coming Soon, just to avoid angry users' rant. There is no official reason for not releasing an update that has been finishe
  19. According to Nextleaks (another mobile phone rumor Twitter account, a la Evleaks), Nokia is planning to release the Lumia 930, 630, and 635 smartphones. They should be officially announced at Mobile World Congress, which begins on February 24th. The 930 is the higher spec'd of the devices, packing a quad-core 2.2GHz CPU, 2GB RAM, a 4.5” 1920x1080 resolution display, microSD card slot, 16GB of internal storage, 20MP camera, and a 2700mAh battery. The 630/635 is the successor to the Lumia 620. They're both mid-range handsets, with the 635 reportedly being a dual-sim variant of the two. Thes
  20. The Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet is going to be released this coming Friday, although at least one person was able to purchase the device days in advance of the launch from an AT&T kiosk in a North Carolina mall. The guys at windowsmania.pl have accessed the Lumia 1520 ROM and pulled out the ringtone pack which they have turned into a 20MB download. The ringtone pack will include some tones that no doubt are already on your Lumia phone, but also offers some new tones including some that have been featured by the Finnish based OEM on its new commercials. If you're interested in adding Nokia's
  21. WhatsApp Messenger is a popular app on the Windows Phone platform, among other platforms. Today, a minor update for the app was released. "WhatsApp Messenger is a smartphone messenger available for Windows Phone, Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, and Nokia phones. WhatsApp uses your 3G or WiFi (when available) to message with friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, pictures, audio notes, and video messages. First year FREE! ($0.99/year after)," the app description reads. This update addresses an issue in which some users received a "no routes" error. The bu
  22. Hey, soccer fans, gather around! A Windows Phone version of FIFA 14, the latest addition to one of the most popular soccer simulators, has finally been released. The iOS and Android versions of the game landed on the respective app stores back in September 2013. FIFA 14 features more than 16,000 real soccer players from 34 different leagues. Players can choose among 600 licensed teams to play with. Of course, a bigger portion of these comes directly from Europe. A completely new feature has also found its way to the popular game. FIFA 14 is the first mobile game of the FIFA series to fea
  23. Nokia Care re-released the Software Recovery Tool for Lumia devices, and today the software has been updated to support Windows Phone 8.1. First spotted by the guys over at WPCentral, the tool will help you recover your phone if it is having software issues or problems while installing an update. "Use the Nokia Software Recovery Tool to recover your phone if you have software or software update problems. If your phone is not responding, it appears to be stuck or is not starting you can try to recover it at home before initiating a repair," Nokia Care writes. The latest update (version 1.3.
  24. Nokia has announced its largest device yet. The new Lumia 1520 features a massive 6-inch display, making it the largest Windows Phone ever released. The 1520 is also the first Windows Phone with a 1080p screen and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 processor. The 1520 retains Nokia's familiar design language — it's a single piece polycarbonate design that looks like a bigger version of the Lumia 720 — and build quality. But when you have a 6-inch display, there's no getting around having a big phone, and the 1520 is downright massive: it's 3.36 inches wide, 6.4 inches tall, and weighs 7.37 oun
  25. Microsoft is going the extra mile with this particular pre-order. For everyone who pre-orders the phone, they'll throw in a $50 Microsoft Store app card as well as a $20 app gift card provided by Nokia. There's also a free Lumia 1520 flip cover included as well. And if that's not enough, there's a free download of Halo: Spartan Assault for Windows Phone to top things off. Microsoft's offer will end on November 21, while the device starts shipping the next day. The Nokia Lumia 1520 sells for $199 and will initially be available in black, red and white, with yellow to come later thi
