Microsoft Launches Nokia X2 Running Android

Posted in Mobile Phones by Darrin Olson on June 24th, 2014

Nokia X2 from Microsoft with Android OSNokia announced on Tuesday the release of the Nokia X2 Dual SIM smartphone. The X2 is the successor to the X1 with more power and the intention of delivering a reasonably prices smartphone to the “next billion” people according to Microsoft.

The device will sell for around $135 USD but most interesting is that the device will continue to run the Android OS despite the purchase of Microsoft who themselves have been struggling to keep up with their own operating system in the smartphone market. Microsoft stated that despite the phone having the competing OS, it will have access to some Microsoft services including Skype and the OneDrive cloud storage service.

Nokia’s N950 torn apart by FCC

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on June 26th, 2011

Looks like the FCC has already torn apart Nokia’s new MeeGo development phone. And it looks like the rumors of watered-down N9 specs are true, except for a 12-megapixel camera, which is a nice addition.

The N950’s official specs list an 8-megapixel camera, so this is certainly a bonus. And the N950 obviously has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The non-user-accessible BL-4D battery is lower capacity than the N9, at 1,320 mAh.

Specs remain a mystery though. At least we have some images. It looks rather pretty and shows off bicycles very well. That much we can see in the image above. More when we have it.

British carrier 3 and Nokia have posted some videos of the E6 and X7. The X7 features a four-inch ClearBlack display as well as an eight-megapixel camera and a newly updated version of Symbian.

We don’t know much about the E6, but it will be the first modern Symbian device with a 4:3 ratio screen and a fixed QWERTY keyboard. It packs a 640×480 resolution screen, and it should have up with 720p video recording along with other modern features.

Nokia expects phone delays due to Japanese quake

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on March 21st, 2011

When we base so much of the world’s tech in one area of the globe, there are bound to be problems when natural disasters strike. Nokia has issued a statement on its operations in light of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The company’s end results for the quarter probably won’t be affected, but some gadgets may be delayed as the parts supply has been understandably interrupted. The company has pledged to do it’s best to work with suppliers inside and outside of Japan to work around the problem if they have to.

As you might expect, many technology companies have been affected by the Japanese quake and Tsunami. Some have had killed or wounded employees, or had their factories damaged etc. I think we would all just wish for them to get some stability at home and be safe before we worry about delays of our devices.

Nokia N8 phones randomly dying worldwide

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on November 22nd, 2010

Nokia’s N8 smartphones were supposed to save the company, but this strategy seems to have hit a snag. The problem? Well, the initial batch of N8 handsets worldwide have begun to suffer from problems concerning power issues, including a dead phone that won’t boot up or light up even with a charger plugged in.

This was originally thought to be an isolated case, but has now expanded into a 6 page thread on the official Nokia forums. Things aren’t looking good for Nokia’s flagship phone. Hopefully there is some kind of fix coming soon.

Nokia lauches C5-03 Touchscreen Phone

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on October 14th, 2010

Nokia just launched their latest inexpensive touchscreen smartphone, the C5-03. This budget phone is powered by Symbian^1. And even though it is a budget phone, it features a compass and A-GPS feature that can be used with the latest version of the free Ovi Maps hands-free navigation service.

The resistive touchscreen instead of a multi-touch capacitive display is lame, but the features aren’t too bad though. You get a 3.2-inch resistive touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Compass, Ovi Maps, 40MB of user memory, microSD card support up to 16GB, 11.5-hour talktime on GSM, 4.5-hours on 3G, 24-25 day standby time, Symbian^1, and a 5-megapixel camera.

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on October 14th, 2010

Nokia N900 owners might have a some good news soon. Right now, the phone is powered by Maemo, but an upcoming PR 1.3 update will allow the phone to dual boot between Maemo and MeeGo, offering you a different experience on the same phone.

There is also the possibility of developing applications supporting both operating systems, based on Qt and Qt Mobility APIs on the Maemo side. The N900 might not be the hottest thing around with the launch of the N8, iPhone 4 and other competitors, but this update would definitely breathe some new life into this phone.

Nokia N8 gets torn apart

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on October 8th, 2010

The Nokia N8 is shipping to Nokia fans right now and the folks over at iFixit were happy to get their hands on one too. As usual, they decided to take it apart. Some good news is that the BL-4D battery is only two screws away from being user-replaceable.

There are also the massive Xenon flash and camera modules, which are not removable from the main board. Remember these folks are professionals. Do not disassemble your N8 unless you know what you’re doing. You may not be able to put it all back together.
