At Mobile World Congress last night, Nokia announced a lineup of its Android phones. The phones are the Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL. The three phones are manufactured by Nokia but run a forked Android version called “Nokia X”. Nokia has built its own services and interface on Google’s Android and the OS has no ties to Google. It reminds us of the Android version on Amazon’s Kindle Fire range. We’ll go into specs, features, photos and videos of the Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL. Nokia X+Read More
Instagram finally arrived on the Windows phone platform after Nokia attempted to put pressure on the photo-streaming site when they launched their own app called #2InstaWithLove. Well, looks like this move worked as the Instagram app is now available for download in the Windows Phone App Store. The App is listed as “Instagram BETA” and includes all the usual photo editing features like the filters you find in its other versions but excludes the Video recording function for now. You also cannot tag people or view maps from geo taggedRead More

Mine is a matte yellow, but they also come in black and white. The device has a very high build quality and is very sturdy to hold in your hand. My one gripe with its shape, however, is the fact that theRead More
Nokia’s latest Ad for the Lumia 920 takes a heavy jab at iPhone and Android fanboys. It starts at a wedding scene with a young man taking pictures with his really large phone. Someone in the congregation asks if he can stop obstructing their view and then someone jabs at Samsung’s Galaxy range of phones. Another attacks the iPhone and the wedding breaks out in chaos. An iPhone user asks another attendee if he can autocorrect a slap. Nokia has joined the train of Samsung’s efforts at jabbing other phones.Read More

Since Microsoft surprised us by entering the tablet market with its Surface Tablet, speculations have been going around about a possible Surface phone. This has led to a lot of rumours, and one of them is that the device went into test phase late last year. ZDnet reported that Nokia made a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), stating not only did it suspect Microsoft of making a phone, but that it could be “detrimental” to the Finnish phone firm’s business interests because this could lead Microsoft to focus moreRead More
