Nokia recently announced a brand new handset that is making quite an interesting splash thanks to its 41-megapixel camera. No, 41 was not a typo. The PureView 808 certainly manages some rather impressive sample shots, as you'll see below.
Most smartphones have a camera in the range of five megapixels. Some may have eight or even twelve megapixels. The newly announced Nokia 808 PureView blows them out of the water with an amazing 41-megapixel camera. Forty. One. Megapixels.
If you have nightmares about being watched, this will be your worst ever. Your mobile phone, the thing that you carry around almost everywhere, might be giving away your location to hackers. According to a new study, anyone with a cheap phone and open source software can easily track the location of a mobile phone (on GSM network, which provides service to 80 percent of the global mobile market) without the owner ever knowing about it.
The white Lumia 800 doesn't change up the hardware at all, still touting the same Lumia 800 specs. This includes a 1.4GHz processor, 3.8” 800x480 AMOLED ClearBlack curved display, an 8MP Carl Zeiss rear camera, 16GB of internal storage, Windows Phone Mango, FM Radio, and a 1450 mAh battery.
Nokia might be busy buddying up with Microsoft on their Windows Phone ambitions, but it looks like the separate Vertu division is still around doing what it has always done: jazz up relatively mediocre phones and sell them for astronomical prices.
There are reports that sales guys could get as much as $10 to $15 per handset sold. The money comes from Microsoft, as well as partners like Nokia and Samsung, and it's reportedly going to all be spent in "early 2012." The Nokia Ace from AT&T, in particular, will be getting a "concerted advertising push."
New reports are in surrounding the Nokia Ace for AT&T, including confirmation that it is in fact the Lumia 900, which will be sold globally as Nokia's flagship windows phone.
What could be worse than spending over $6000 on a 'dumb' phone? Perhaps spending $190 for the USB data cable that connects the phone to the PC? That's right, the data cable actually costs $190.
After positive attention for the Nokia Tab Windows 8 tablet concept, a similar designed concept device is now being shown off by YrOnimuS under the name Nokia 1.
The folks at Ubergizmo have gathered up four unique concept devices that debuted in 2011.
Now, we're ready for the next major update to Microsoft's smartphone platform and it looks like next month's CES is where they're going to reveal the Tango update to WP7.
The tech blogs Netbooknews and Pocketlint both recently reported that in China they have a Nokia N9 phone running seven different OSes, switchable by the fling of a finger.
Android is on the rise. In fact, when you look at the sales numbers for Q3 2011 and compare them to the sales numbers for the same period one year prior, you'll see that Google's mobile operating system has effectively doubled its market share.
It’s no secret that Nokia lost out on what they used to be in the United States. When Nokia announced its smartphone for the European market, many wondered when it would hit the Western world.
So, to help spread the word about Windows Phone 7 (and WP7.5 Mango), Nokia is planning to launch 26 Wi-Fi hotspots spread out around London.
