The Camera Detailing of the 920 is Zirconium Made

The Camera Detailing of the 920 is Zirconium Made

Sep 29, 2012

One of my personal complaints about the Lumia 900, 800, and Nokia N9 is the aluminum-made camera plate. I have been through two 900’s, two N9’s, and one 800; in all of them, this piece would scratch within 24 hours of unboxing the device. The good news today is that Nokia is really paying attention to the details! (This little detail says a lot, they...

There’s a Reason for the Lumia 920 Premium Pricing

There’s a Reason for the Lumia 920 Premium Pricing

Sep 28, 2012

From a Wired magazine article published this week: “But these early numbers indicate that Nokia’s flagship Windows Phones will likely cost the same as the phones from the more established manufacturers like Apple, Samsung and HTC” “But why buy a 920? What is the lipstick on this that justifies [the price]? The case isn’t prettier. It doesn’t...

What Will Nokia Introduce Next Month?

What Will Nokia Introduce Next Month?

Aug 19, 2012

Practically speaking, we are about to have the first North American Nokia World in history. I know it’s not entirely a correct statement, but Nokia’s September 5th event in NY will be concurrently held with the true Nokia World in Helsinki, Finland. We are not used to this duality, but the reality is that many things have changed in Nokia since last...

Zero To Sixty Car Comparison App Soon in The Marketplace!

Aug 11, 2012

My third application has been submitted the Windows Phone Marketplace! I have learned a lot from my previous two apps: ATP Calc and Presso Recipes, and this last app, Zero To Sixty, is probably the best app I have coded to date. So, what’s Zero To Sixty, and why is it named like that? Zero To Sixty is all about cars; both exotic super cars, and...

I recently found in one of my drawers my old Nokia E75. I turned it on, configured my email, some settings, and immediately turned it back off and put it in the same drawer. I then checked the year it was released, and I could not believe it was a ’09 device. A 2009 device! I like to over-think things, and then share them on this blog for anyone who wants...

Nokia, it’s not about price anymore

Nokia, it’s not about price anymore

Jul 17, 2012

I have been traveling around the old continent for about two months. I visited 4 different countries, several cities, and innumerable small towns. As you would think from being the editor of this blog, I am a phone nut. I live, breathe, and love smartphones; it’s really fun for me to see what people are using on the streets, as well going into every single...

PSA: Spotify Premium is Awesome on Nokia Lumia and N9

PSA: Spotify Premium is Awesome on Nokia Lumia and N9

Jun 10, 2012

I am generally a Pandora user, but I am about to go abroad for a long month. Pandora is a no-no considering how expensive data is abroad, and the fact that AT&T wouldn’t unlock my 900. I always heard great things about Spotify, but I never bothered to look into it. I signed up for Spotify premium yesterday. It’s $9.99 a month, and it is worth...

Nokia’s Stock Price is Ridiculously Low, Say Experts

Nokia’s Stock Price is Ridiculously Low, Say Experts

Jun 7, 2012

I have been trying to understand the stock market lately; I don’t know much about it, but from browsing around, there’s things that just don’t make common sense. For example, Bombardier, a private jet manufacturer, has a 7 Billion Market cap. Kellog’s, the breakfast-table, ever-present brand, has an 18 Billion Market cap, and Audi, the...
