Nokia has recently made news with its Nokia Lumia 925 phone that will be hitting T-Mobile. The mobile giant has gone ahead to announce a revamped version of its flagship phone. However there is a slight difference from its predecessor as Nokia has ditched the wireless charging support for the handset. The Company has madeContinue reading »
Communication was the reason for which people started buying cell phones. They are handy and the call rates seem to be much lower than the fixed lines. In those times, mobiles were used only by adults, but the plates have turned and now it is the younger generation that is using more mobiles than the adults. A single person is known to own more than one mobile; this is especially the case with business people who wish to keep their personal and official lives separate, thus having two mobiles. As the number of mobile sale rises, it is obvious that the number of subscriptions will also rise. Statistics have proven that the number of cell phone subscriptions have exceeded the number of people in the country, showing how popular cell phones are among the people.

Second gen Nokia Lumia smartphones carry the suffix “20,” and as the number coming after the “Lumia” shows how powerful it is, we assume all new Lumias are more powerful than the ones launched earlier. Presently, there is the Nokia Lumia 620, which is the most affordable Nokia Windows Phone handset available in the market. As its number ends with “20” we can say the Lumia 620 is more powerful than the Lumia 610. Probably guys at WindowsMania.pl in Poland didn’t believe in this and tore the phone down.
In general, simple readers are not too interested in similar articles because of the technical terms that appear annoying for them. But this time everything is much simpler and not too technical.
The Nokia Lumia 620 is colorful from outside and looks very attractive but to discover its components take a look at the picture below, as it explains everything in details. Afterward I’d like you to share your comments in the box below.
A few days ago Nokia posted a job on LinkedIn seeking a “Principal Software Engineer, Embedded Linux Middleware,” who would work on “embedded Linux device software and hardware drivers for our exciting new products.” This made people think Nokia is switching to Android, or at least, there will be an Android-powered handset. However, those who are familiar with Nokia’s Stephen Elop and his interviews should know the Finnish company has no plans to make Android smartphones in the near future. So there should be another explanation behind this statement, and now we say there is.
Nokia’s Media Relations fellow, Doug Dawson has tweeted that the listing is for software engineers to help build a version of Nokia’s HERE mapping app to Android. As you know, Here Maps was recognized as the best mapping app among all available versions, and even Apple suggested it as a replacement for iOS6 Maps after its fail.
People like to play with electronics, and when a company like Nokia persuades them to do crazy things (remember the amazing everyday ads?), users don’t miss their chance to have a fun. But when unusual experiments are made by scientists or carriers, those devices should be chosen carefully not to shame the authors.
I bet you are not aware the Nokia Lumia 800 was propelled into space by a balloon. It was done by scientists at the University of Southampton. The phone soared as high as 32km (20 miles) and landed after 2 hours and 22 minutes.
Now the same experiment was performed with the Nokia Lumia 920. Finnish retailer Verkkokauppa sent several units of this model into space. The maximum height it reached was 30km (19 miles), and spending about 27 minutes in sub-zero temperature the phones landed. As the retailer reports, all models but one have successfully landed. So those who find the “lost” Lumia 920 will be rewarded 1000 EUR ($1294 USD). The last known coordinates are Latitude: 61.324573, Longitude: 27.734175, thus it is in Finland, most likely in water.
If you find the phone, there is a special number on the container you can call or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Nokia Lumia 920 is not known only for its sexy design and Windows Phone 8, but also for its perfect screen and outstanding camera. Today we’ll talk about PureView Phase 2 camera that makes this handset more and more appealing. Needless to go deep into its technical features because we can assess the job it does directly from the photos provided by an enthusiast, Keng Chang.
The Lumia 920 has been compared with a professional digital camera dubbed as the Canon EOS-1D X. It’s a high-end camera costing around $6,500-$7,000, so you should take all compared photos with a grain of salt. Besides this, the Lumia 920 is the follow-up to the Lumia 900 and it would be reasonable to see how it takes over its predecessor.
The side by side comparison of photos taken by those three devices clearly shows the 18.1MP Canon EOS-1D X is out of competition, but, still, the Lumia 920 still does a good job. Do not get surprised at seeing only nighttime and low-light photos because this is the only feature the Lumia 920 can’t boast of, and the author has had a goal to find out how bad it is in comparison with other cameras.
Today Nokia unveiled two new feature phones designed for emerging markets. These low end devices dubbed the Nokia Asha 205 and 206 come in single and dual-SIM variants as well as various colors. But their main advantage is the off-contract price.
The Nokia Asha 205 is the first Nokia phone with dedicated Facebook button. On the whole, this model looks quite attractive, and its isolated keys and quick-access buttons for superior speed and accuracy make us hope the QWERTY keyboards are still alive and can be useful. The rest of features are not that appealing as they include a 2.4-inch QVGA screen, a VGA camera and 2G connectivity. The phone will be launched in cyan, magenta and orange with stylish two-tone mixes. The battery is another selling point of the Asha 205 as it provides up to 37 days of stand-by to the single option and 25 days to the dual-SIM model. By the way, the latter supports Nokia’s unique Easy Swap technology allowing users to change one of the SIM cards through a slot on the side, without even switching the phone off. The handset also remembers settings for up to 5 SIM cards.
As for the Nokia Asha 206, it has a less attractive design and looks like older Nokia handsets, but it sports a 2.4-inch QVGA TFT display and a 1.3MP camera. The Asha 206 will come in cyan, black, white, magenta and yellow.
Besides these features there are a few more that make the Nokia Asha 205 and 206 quite desirable for consumers of entry markets. Firstly, it’s related with a new feature called Nokia Slam. It allows users to detect devices in Bluetooth range and offers any file you have chosen before. The other device can accept the offer and download the file immediately without pairing the devices. Moreover, the other handset doesn’t have to be a Nokia device or Slam installed.
Secondly, both devices come with Nokia Express Browser pre-installed that uses cloud-based servers to reduce data volumes by 90%.
Other apps include Nokia Nearby, Facebook, Twitter, eBuddy, Nokia Life (or Nokia Life+) and EA gift pack of 40 free premium games worth €75.
Both models will be out in Q4, 2012 at $62.
Nokia’s Series 40 mobile operating system can be found only on Asha line handsets, but this family has many members that differ from each other in many aspects. Say, the Nokia Asha 309 is a full touch smartphone for users with low incomes to have internet access. On the other hand, there is the Nokia Asha 303 with a physical QWERTY keyboard designed especially for those consider themselves as heavy texters. But there is also a newly announced Nokia 109 that lets users connect to internet.
The Nokia 109 supports GPRS/EDGE 2G internet connectivity. This is the main feature of this handset. Other features worth to be mentioned are — a 1.8-inch display at 128 x 160 resolutions, microSD card support up to 32GB and so on. Unfortunately, there is no camera, so the Nokia 109 is made only to make calls, to listen to music and to browse web pages.
The Nokia 109 will be launched in black and cyan before the end of 2012 in China, Pacific Asia and Europe. It will cost $42 off contract.
After the Nokia Lumia 920 was announced with its super-fast and super-sensitive touchscreen, many people used to ponder over whether they need a handset that will sacrifice its lifetime for more sensitiveness or not. It was a real concern for many users who eventually sent an open mail to Nokia asking whether the phone’s battery will discharge faster than necessary. Nokia has answered.
As we used to think, the Finnish company had considered every detail. Nokia answered there is no need to worry as they use the latest Synaptics technology making the Nokia Lumia 920’s display the fastest LCD in its class.
As you know, the PureMotion HD+ display of the phone can get commands from any kind of conductive objects — nails, gloves or even forks. On this occasion Nokia’s Senior Technology Manager, Jussi Ropo said:
The technology is adaptive so it reacts to any conductive object that is touching the screen. In other words, whether you are using it with gloves or a nail or stylus, it will automatically adjust the sensitiveness to provide the best possible touch screen experience.
What has made this possible? You need a lot of experience working with capacitive touch to be able do this. I would say it is a combination of the new hardware and the way it’s built into the phone but even more it is about knowing how to use it.
So it’s enough to “attack” this smartphone and consequently, prevent it from conquering the world.
The Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 will be launched with a special feature, which is available only on these Windows Phone 8 devices. It’s the wireless charging that makes both handsets stand out. To explain what it means Nokia has posted an entire article showing how the technology works and what improvement Nokia has made in it.
Basically the technology works due to two transmitter coils. One of them is located on the charging pad, while the second one is on the phone. The charger’s transmitter coil generates a magnetic field that is used by the handset to charge.
Fortunately, Nokia uses Qi (chi) global standard, which means there will be no problem with the compatibility across the globe. Moreover, Nokia has improved this technology and now around 80% of the pad is active. Thus, users can place their handsets in the way they want.
The bad news is only one handset can be charged at a certain moment, so do not hope to throw all your handsets on the pad for charging. The pads will be available for purchase separately from the phones.
