The Nokia Lumia 925 and 928– what sets each other apart?

The Nokia Lumia 925 and 928– what sets each other apart?

Aug 13, 2013

The Nokia Lumia 920 is considered by many as one of the best camera phones so far – the premium optics of the Pureview 808 miniaturized into a slimmer package. From it came two more phones: the Lumia 925, and more recently, the Lumia 928. Stepping away from the vibrant colors of the 920, both phones sport more refined tastes in aesthetic engineering. They may...

On the Lumia 920 Design

May 28, 2013

I have been taking a close look at my red Lumia 920 lately–questioning myself whether there is room for improvement. I strongly believe there is. The Lumia 920 is a beautiful smartphone. However, I find the 920 has some design flaws that have grown to irritate me, particularly, because that other smartphone cleverly avoids them. The smartphone is personal yet...

Lumia 920 and 820 Coming to AT&T, A Great Day for America!

Quoting my favorite comedian Craig Ferguson, “It’s a great day for America everyone!” The Lumia 920 and 820 are coming to the U.S. on the Nation’s fastest network, AT&T. Not all the questions were answered, but Nokia fans in the U.S. should be happy to know that the Lumia 920 will come in yellow, red, white, black, and…. cyan! A...

I couldn’t believe it when I read it; it seemed more like a practical joke than real news coming from Reuters. Nokia’s spoke-person Maija Taimi made the following statement to the international news agency: We are evaluating different options for non-core parts, such as real estate holdings, and that includes the headquarters. Nokia is trying to lose...

Nokia Lumia 920 Shell vs. Lumia 900

It’s the beginning of the week and I am already late with this one. Nokia sent a teaser package last week; a shiny aluminum box with laser-engraved words reading “Nokia Lumia 920.” I jumped of excitement, but I knew it couldn’t be an actual 920 since WP8 has not been fully revealed yet and I haven’t signed an NDA…. ever....

The Camera Detailing of the 920 is Zirconium Made

The Camera Detailing of the 920 is Zirconium Made

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...

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...
