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...

Lumia 900 “Purple Screen” Update Now Available!

Lumia 900 “Purple Screen” Update Now Available!

Jun 6, 2012

Soon after the Lumia 900 was released, some eagle eyed users reported “purple washed out” screens. Basically, the phone was unable to display proper blacks, and instead displayed a purplish color resembling black. The issue is not very noticeable unless you hold a good unit next to the faulty unit, so don’t be surprised if all this time you...

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...

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...

Microsoft’s Imagine Cup is a highly challenging competition where the best students around the world compete in creating the best application possible. The Cup has different categories, and one of them is no other than Windows Phone. This year, the goal was to create “software that can really make a broad impact in the world,” with an app that...

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...

Nokia Sends Lumia 900 Customers to Closed Stores

Nokia Sends Lumia 900 Customers to Closed Stores

Apr 8, 2012

I find it completely unbelievable that Nokia could have screwed up something as important as the Lumia 900 release. This should be the day when fans and customers pile up in front of AT&T stores waiting for the new phone, while the media makes a big deal about it, thus, attracting more customers. I don’t know what happened, but seems like Nokia...
