With the winter months coming to a close (thank god, if you lived in the Northeast, you’d understand) it means that spring time is edging closing and so is the month of April. Why is April so special? The month itself isn’t exactly that spectacular, but it will host the upcoming Microsoft development meeting where the Redmond giant is expected to debut Windows Phone 8.1. The latest version of Windows Phone that is expected to be announced is eagerly anticipated due to all of the fantastic new features, like the ability to...

In a move that may seem counter-productive, Nokia (which may be soon under Microsoft) has announced their very first tablet, running Windows RT. Yes, Windows RT, the same OS that most other companies like ASUS and ACER seem to be dumping left and right. The new tablet, or Lumia 2520, is like a larger Lumia Windows Phone, it’s a 10.1 inch tablet, with a 1920 x 1080 display, which promise the same great viewing angles and rich deep blacks as their phones, but resolution wise, falls far behind tablets like the iPad, Galaxy Note 10.1...

After months or rumors and leaked images, Nokia has finally revealed their biggest Lumia phone to date, in fact, it’s the largest Windows Phone device ever made. The Lumia 1520 is a 6-inch monster and has all the specs to back it up. Nokia went out of their way to make this phone a solid performer, packing in a full HD 1080p display—which measures 6-inches diagonally—a cutting edge Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. Windows Phone has always been a smooth performing OS and with these new specs, it can only get...

During Nokia’s (ill-timed) product event in Dubai today, the company announced that an official Instagram app would be coming to Windows Phone in the coming weeks. Thanks to Nokia, Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom finally buckled to the pressure and confirmed the app is coming, saying “Our ultimate goal is to bring Instagram to everyone who wants to use it,” and “We’re looking forward to watching the Windows Phone community use Instagram to capture and share beautiful moments in the coming weeks.” This is...

Later this month, Nokia (soon to be Microsoft) will take the lids off their long-rumored Lumia tablet, which will be running Windows RT (why??). According to WinSuperSite‘s Paul Thurrott, this tablet will feature the typical 10.1 inch display size for tablet with full 1080p resolution. It will also feature a quad-core processor from Qualcomm, presumably either the 600 or 800 chipset. Since Nokia is a big fan of cameras, it shouldn’t be to surprising that they are squeezing in a 6.7-megapixel shooter, which we can only assume...

  When you have billions of dollars in the bank and you want to get into the “devices & services” category, sure you could put together a team and try and build products yourself, or you could just buy an already established company. That’s exactly what Microsoft did with Nokia, their biggest partner on their Windows Phone front. Microsoft and Nokia announced early this morning (Tuesday) that the Redmond giant will pay a combined $7 billion+ for both Nokia’s device and services business ($4.99 billion)...

With Nokia’s Lumia 1020, the camera phone has been reinvented, specifically, zooming. With phones like the iPhone and the Galaxy S4, zooming can cause severe pixelating effects, mainly because of their smaller pixels and sensors. With the Lumia 1020, by Nokia, you have a phenomenal sensor, that takes great photos in low light, you have lens optics by the legendary optics maker, Ziess and of course the sensor is capable of taking 41-megapixels pictures. So what does all that mean, it means you can sit back and know that whether you’re...

Is there any reason to be surprised that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is failing to catch on with the public? It’s more expensive ($299) than the already released Nokia 920 ($99), which also is failing to sell. Did Nokia really believe that putting a 41-megapixel camera into a phone that’s failing, would do the trick? Here’s a clue, I’ll give to Nokia for free. Despite its very slight climb in marketshare, the general population doesn’t care for Windows Phone. Aside from the lack of certain apps, most people are...

So Nokia wasted no time this morning unveiling its latest (and long rumored) flagship device, the Lumia 1020. The new Windows Phone 8 device packs a massive, 41-megapixel “PureView” camera and some semi-professional “themed” camera software to boot. Aside from those two elements, the 1020, is basically a Lumia 925. It features the same operating system, the same 4.5-inch HD display and oddly enough, the same 2,000mAh battery, despite a more power-hungry camera. Nokia did however boost the RAM to 2GB (most likely...

Update: While no offer is on the table, Huawei’s Richard Yu, Chairman of Consumer Business, did make the following statement in regards to purchasing Nokia. “We are considering these sorts of acquisitions; maybe the combination has some synergies but depends on the willingness of Nokia. We are open-minded.” ======== At this point, it’s common knowledge that Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform is still struggling to find a market. The OS has been on the market for over two and half years and just recently broke the...
