When is The N8 Shipping in The US? We Got Some Answers!

Sep 29, 2010

The wait for the N8 has been ridiculous….really. While most major companies announce a product and put it in the market within months, Nokia has this horrible custom of letting fans wait for months, months, and months. To put it in perspective, the iPhone 4, announced this past June, was released that same month. The Blackberry Torch, announced this past...

Angry Birds for Symbian^3 Hits The Ovi Store!

Sep 29, 2010

Angry Birds was first available for the Nokia N900, but later, as Nokia pushed Qt forward, Angry Birds was ported to Symbian^3. These are really great news for Nokia, not only because more Nokia users can now enjoy one of the best mobile games ever, but because Qt is really encouraging developers to create apps since they can serve a wide range of platforms with...

Nokia C7: A Revolutionary, Uncelebrated Handset

Sep 26, 2010

With all the talking about the Nokia E7 and N8, the C7 hasn’t had an opportunity to shine. And with a valid reason, these handsets and their amazing specs can easily get all the attention, leaving the C7 looking as just “another” Symbian^3 smartphone.

Nokia World was the opportunity for Nokia to make a positive change. And they did. Lets start with Nokia’s leadership. CEO Olli-Pekka is out, Stephen Elop is in. This change is a very significant one because Elop is a totally unexpected person to come in and take the leadership at Nokia. The fact that he is the first non-Finnish person to direct the...

C3 Touch and Type Demo at Nokia World

Sep 18, 2010

The second day after revealing all the devices at Nokia World, Nokia unexpectedly introduced the Nokia C3 Touch and Type. Wait, C3? Yeah, this phone has the same name than the other C3, the one with a full QWERTY keyboard. This is very confusing, adding the suffix “Touch and Type” doesn’t do it.

X3 Touch: Hands On With The Nokia X3 Touch and Type

Sep 17, 2010

Since the day Nokia announced the X3 Touch and Type I have been looking forward to get my hands on it. The concept of what Nokia calls a “Touch and Type” device is brilliant in theory, but practice is often different. The small screen of the X3 is what worried me the most; the UI was my second concern. The first time I held the X3 Touch and Type I...

Sep 16, 2010

While having an interesting talk with the product managers of the Nokia E7 at Nokia World, Devin from The Nokia Guide had the brilliant idea of checking the Flash version capable of running on the E7. With Android already supporting Flash 10.1, Nokia definitely couldn’t lag behind in the area in which they were always leaders: Nokia phones were for years...
