On Facebook’s Phone!

On Facebook’s Phone!

May 31, 2012

Why do we need a Facebook Phone? I have a Facebook app that already puts into mobile all that Facebook is. And what’s Facebook’s interest of getting into hardware production, when there’s so many problems involved with it, and they know so little about it? There’s excellent mobile hardware out there: the Galaxy SIII, the iPhone 4S, and...

Nokia Play 360 On Amazon and Microsoft Store in the U.S

Nokia Play 360 On Amazon and Microsoft Store in the U.S

May 30, 2012

These might be old news, but the Nokia Play 360 is now available in the U.S in all three colors. A couple of months ago when I got my Play 360, I had to go through a lot of work finding a Play 360 overseas and having someone bring it to the U.S. I also paid considerably more than what the Play 360 is currently going for over here. Anyway, if you haven’t...

Unlocked Lumia 900 Available in the UK, Batman Version Soon

May 30, 2012

That’s right, UK residents can now get an unlocked Nokia Lumia 900. No carrier branding, no contract, no stupid AT&T logo like the U.S model. Seems like the only available color is black. The sim-free 900 is going for £489. That seems like a really high price, AT&T is selling the unlocked Lumia 900 in the U.S for $450. Anyway, you can read the...

What’s Up With Nokia’s US Quality Control?

What’s Up With Nokia’s US Quality Control?

May 29, 2012

Saying a whole company has quality control issues is somewhat difficult, but after a certain number of defective units, there has to be something more in the equation than the usual random problems. I have bought three Nokia Lumia 900s, and I have had to return three (update: four) Nokia Lumia 900s, but should return four (update: five) of them (I’ll...

No Waterproof Phones from Nokia Anytime Soon

May 29, 2012

There’s been reports this week of Nokia’s next-gen Lumias to be nano coated with waterproof technology. Those reports are not accurate, according to Conor Pierce, Nokia’s VP for Western Europe. The technology could eventually find its way to the mass market, but not anytime soon. Nokia demonstrated the nano technology at the Nokia Research...

Future Nokia phones Could Save Lives

Future Nokia phones Could Save Lives

May 24, 2012

I remember the N95. Nokia never said anything about the accelerometer sensor that had been silently built into every N95 sold, it was quite nice when the sensor was discovered and suddenly a new feature had been added without buying anything. Anyway, I bring up the N95 because it was amazing how sensors such as the accelerometer and GPS, two brand new...

The Best Pandora app for Nokia Lumia, in my Opinion

The Best Pandora app for Nokia Lumia, in my Opinion

May 23, 2012

I am a Pandora user. It’s the perfect music service. I love not worrying about creating playlists, and I am discovering new songs all the time. Pandora is great when I am at the gym using my BH-505’s, or at a social gathering when my Play 360 comes in very handy. Unfortunately, there’s no official Pandora app for Windows Phone. I asked someone...
