Nokia N9 Announced: Packs MeeGo, 8 Megapixel Camera, and Swiping

New Vertu Signature to Feature 3G, Wi-Fi

Friedblogs reports that a new Vertu Signature is coming, and while that’s not necessarily news in itself, the ultra-high-end device is ushering in some features from the modern era: 3G (850/2100), Wi-Fi, an OLED display, and a “SIM drawer” that allows the user to swap SIM cards without removing the battery. Pretty impressive for a [...]

Nokia Beta Labs: Enhanced Calculator

Here’s going backwards for you: Nokia’s latest Beta Labs creation, the so-called S60 Enhanced Calculator, is actually the same software that’s preloaded on certain Nokia S40 phones. Of course, it IS a more fully featured application than the current S60 calculator, so we’ll let it slide.

Preview: Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte

Nokia loves churning out new 8800 series models by the truckload. Last time, it was the 8800 Sapphire Arte. That one sported a genuine sapphire gem and retailed for about $1600 bucks. And now, in an attempt to match the success of the Sapphire, we turn to the Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte.
