Nokia Asha 201 Hands-on Videos

by GULLIVER - on Oct 27th 2011 - No Comments

Yesterday Nokia announced a new line of low-end smartphones running Series 40 platform, Asha. Some handsets from this line look like Nokia’s E series devices. Now we’ll talk about one of them — the Nokia Asha 201.

The Nokia Asha 201 is a candybar messaging smartphone, which means it’ll be welcomed by users spending much time on social networking sites. It’s packed with a 2.4-inch LCD display. Altogether, the phone is very comfortable to hold in hand, which is conditioned by its dimensions (115.5×61.1x 4 mm) and weight (105g).

This is not one of the phones we can talk for hours and still have something more to add. The only thing left to know is it’ll be available in Q1, 2012 for €60 ($85).

As for hands-on videos, we have a couple of them. Good watching!



How Nokia N9 is Made? Process Video

by GULLIVER - on Oct 25th 2011 - No Comments

The Nokia N9 is already available in many countries. Unlike other Nokia handsets it is sure to get more and more popular. This is a little bit strange because Nokia earlier announced it won’t continue working on MeeGo and it was just an experimental platform. However, the interest towards it doesn’t extinguish, and we’ll introduce our Nokia N9 review in coming days. At this moment I want you to pay attention to the video, which shows how the phone is made.

On the other hand, this video could be interesting because Nokia’s upcoming Windows Phone-powered smartphone, the Nokia 800 has similar design. Moreover, Nokia World is around the corner and most likely we’ll see more WP-flowered devices and no one knows what they’ll look like. There may be, for example, other unibody handsets, so it’s really interesting how such devices are made.

Watch the video below and let us know whether you like the Nokia N9’s design or no. Would you like to see other handsets looking similar?


Nokia 800 Teaser Hits UK TV channels

by GULLIVER - on Oct 24th 2011 - No Comments

The Nokia 800 has been spotted in wild pictures and carriers’ ads for several times. Beyond doubt it’ll be one of the first Nokia Windows Phone smartphones, most likely the first one. I am almost sure it’ll be so, because two days are left till the Nokia World, and a Nokia 800 teaser is hitting UK TV channels. So far no other Nokia smartphone running Windows Phone has been leaked in a video; only the Nokia Sabre was spotted in a photo.

Unlike the previous leaks, where the above mentioned phones are shown in UI themed pictures, in this video the teaser emphasizes the design of the Nokia 800. As we have talked earlier the Sabre comes in the same appearance as the Nokia N9; that’s a smart marketing step, because the Nokia N9 has managed to be loved especially for its buttonless design. So we hope the Nokia 800 will have a similar look, because Nokia’s moving to a new stage in its history and probably it’ll change the course of the entire mobile industry. At least that’s what we consider very likely.


Nokia 500 Camera Preview

by GULLIVER - on Oct 21st 2011 - No Comments

The Nokia 500/Fate is the cheapest smartphone running Symbian Anna. You probably think it’s mid-range and is not capable of doing many things. I have to disappoint you, because the Nokia 500 doesn’t yield many other handsets in terms of hardware, especially the camera.

The Nokia 500 is packed with a 5MP camera, which even though doesn’t come with a single-LED flash and the maximum megapixel you can use is 5MP, the widescreen aspect ratio is at 3.6MP 2560x 440 pixel resolution. Moreover, the videos can be recorded at up to HQ 640×480 pixels and the aspect ratio is 360p.

You think all these features are not enough to snap high-class pictures and videos? Vain, because  for your viewing pleasure we’ve grabbed several pictures and videos, where Nokia 500 shows itself.

The only weak point of the Nokia 500 camera is that it’s very slow to zoom in/out using the keys on the side. So we recommend that you use touch zooming for faster zooming.

Well, get acquainted with the pictures and the video below and let us know what you think of the Nokia 500 camera.

Windows Phone Mango vs. MeeGo

by GULLIVER - on Oct 20th 2011 - No Comments

While many people are busy discussing which platform is better, which one dominates on the market and how the smartphone market will be changed in terms of software requirements, others compare different operating systems leaving the final verdict to you. And that’s right — each platform has its own advantages and disadvantages, so only you — the consumer — can decide which one is better for you.

I want to introduce to you an amazing video comparing Windows Phone Mango and MeeGo. MeeGo? Yes the same MeeGo we saw on the Nokia N9. Windows Phone Mango partakes in this comparison video in face of the HTC Radar.

But there is this problem — the video’s in Russian, but I advise you not to focus on this fact, as you’ll see what you need; that’s how these two platforms do different things.

Well, you only have to know some details about both handsets. The HTC Radar comes with a 3.8-inch Super LCD touchscreen, a 1GHz processor with Adreno 205 GPU, 8GB internal memory and 512MB of RAM, while the Nokia N9 comes with a 3.9-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, a 1GHz Cortex A8 processor with PowerVR SGX530 GPU and TI OMAP 3630 chipset, 16/64GB of internal memory and 1GB of RAM.

On the whole, the Nokia N9 looks more attractive, so when making your decision take into account this factor, too.


Nokia Launches New NFC-Enabled Games

by GULLIVER - on Oct 18th 2011 - No Comments

While other manufacturers refuse NFC technology, Nokia strongly sticks to it. Apple refused it choosing Bluetooth 4.0 and so far I haven’t found any Android device with the NFC functionality (if I am being mistaken, please correct me). Anyway, NFC term has been circulating in the web for a while, which means the ignorance towards it is conditioned by factors other than its popularity. Well, NFC is not intended only for paying via the phone, but also for playing. Some of the games developed by the Nokia Research Center are Nokia World Flags, Nokia Shakespeare Shuffle and Nokia Nursery Rhyme Shuffle.

The above mentioned corporation has mission to explore technology frontiers and solve scientific challenges today, so that tomorrow Nokia delivers irresistible personal experiences. As you see the Nokia Research Center doesn’t sit tight and does its best to help Nokia promote its Symbian Belle devices. I guess you understand which smartphones I am speaking about; NFC-enabled phones including the Nokia C7 Astound, C7-00, 600, 603, 700 and 701.

Well, you can watch the video below and find out a fourth concept (not available) where you tap different parts of a stuffed animal with an NFC phone to launch different games.

At the end, I have to note Nokia is not the first launching games that can be played with NFC-enabled devices. Let’s not forget Rovio, which launched an NFC-enabled version of Angry Birds called Angry Birds Magic. However, Nokia is a most popular brand and both NFC and games like that can become even more popular due to Nokia’s position in the mobile market.


Nokia Introduces Luna Bluetooth Headset

by GULLIVER - on Oct 14th 2011 - No Comments

Nokia’s always in love with new technologies, and does its best to be the first in their “life.” The same thing’s happening with NFC. As you know this technology allows users to pay directly from their smartphones. Though this idea was welcomed by many manufacturers, not all of them hurry to bring it to their handsets. Unlike them, Nokia is actively promoting its new smartphones supporting NFC and is even designing different accessories for such devices. One of them is Nokia Luna Bluetooth headset.

The Luna headset is designed with taste and weighs only 5g. The pod is a little bit larger and heavier weighing 18.3g, but it’s done to provide longer battery life — sixty days of stand-by mode and eight hours of talk time. Removing the headset from the pod will automatically answer an incoming call, and putting it back in the pod will hang up a call.

The Luna headset is automatically paired with a Nokia NFC-capable phone by just tapping the two devices together. On the pod you can find support for multi-point connections and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR.

All in all, the headset is designed quite well, and it will satisfy all those users who prefer glamorous accessories. The headset is expected to be launched by the end of 2011 with a price tag at 69 EUR (US$95).


Nokia N9 vs. Nokia N8 Video Recording

by GULLIVER - on Oct 14th 2011 - No Comments

If you ask me, it doesn’t really matter that Android is the most popular platform and that many manufacturers hold firmly to it. All I know is Nokia’s really cute and it has handsets that are completely out of competition. One of the best handsets in Nokia’s portfolio is the Nokia N8. It’s great, but it doesn’t mean the Nokia N8 stands alone at the peak of glory — the newly-launched Nokia N9 is there, too.

Yesterday we talked about the shocking results the Nokia N9 showed by its video playback. Much earlier we talked about its stunning features (buttonless design, pleasant UI and performance of MeeGo, awesome specs list and so on). Yes, we talked much about this device, but there is one thing we haven’t done so far — we haven’t put it in comparison in terms of video and audio recording. Here we go.

Below you can find a video comparing the Nokia N9 and the Nokia N8 recording abilities. Be attentive; besides the picture quality, there are also sound recording differences. And lastly I just have to say this — Nokia is the best when it comes to audio recording, and I don’t know any other smartphone company paying as much attention to it, as Nokia does.


Nokia X7 unboxing and design review

by GULLIVER - on Oct 7th 2011 - 1 Comment

The Nokia X7 is one of those few Nokia handsets that were launched in the US. AT&T ventured and didn’t mistake, because the phone succeeded and won geeks’ hearts immediately after its launch. Of course, it should have something that attracted US carrier’s attention, and it has — the Nokia X7 is designed for gaming, and unlike other similar smartphones, it’s also a good smartphone.

Though almost 4 months have passed since then, we have another first impression and boot up video. Before you’ll start to watch the video posted on Tech Prolonged, it’ll be better to put a quick look at it features:

  • 4-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 360 x 640 pixels
  • 256MB of RAM
  • 1GB of ROM
  • 8GB chip included
  • 8MP camera that takes pictures in a resolution of 3264×2448 pixels, it also comes with fixed focus and dual-LED flash
  • 680MHz ARM 11 processor with Broadcom BCM2727 GPU
  • Symbian Anna.

No matter you are surprised at or disappointed with the features it has, there are 3 reasons to get the Nokia X7. After all, it’s one of the flagships with the Nokia N8, E7 and a few other smartphones as well. So go ahead and share your thoughts with us.

Nokia N9 Video Ad

by GULLIVER - on Sep 27th 2011 - No Comments

Are you an Android lover, or do you think the iPhone is the best, or do you own a smartphone running Windows Phone or Symbian? Whatever your preferences are, you have to know there is another mobile operating system starting its way in the cruel world of tech, MeeGo. MeeGo? Yeah! And there is also a new smartphone running MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan, the Nokia N9.

I won’t talk about the features coming with the phone, or about the advantages this platform offers, because it is a matter of taste. But you should know the Nokia N9 is a buttonless device and looks quite attractive. I want to remind you that Android-packed handsets will lack buttons only in Ice Cream Sandwich. iOS has buttons on the screen, too, and though it’s only one button, it obviously affects the design. Design — the Nokia N9 has a charm, I can say it for sure.

Well, the design is the main thing the designers have focused on, so remember the following words:








All they are about one phone — the Nokia N9.
