Nokia, don’t Let HTC get Ahead in the U.S!

Oct 2, 2012

Scary news came out this morning about AT&T announcing the “Windows Phone” 8x coming early November to their network. Where’s Nokia? The Lumia 920 and 820 have been at Nokia USA’s website since day one, but Nokia has not even mentioned which carrier will offer the phones later this year. One possible explanation, is that Nokia is...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
