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

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything really worthwhile on this blog. Then again, it’s been a long time since there’s been any worthwhile Nokia news. And so, after a four-month hiatus, it’s time again to look at one of Nokia’s latest phones: the oft-rumored N9.

Nokia E63 Now Available in the USA

It took a good month or so, but the E63 is now hitting Nokia Flagship stores on US soil (that’s New York and Chicago), as well as the usual bunch of retailers. There’s two things that make the E63 an interesting specimen. First is the price: at $279 USD, it’s by far one of the [...]

Send Your Valentine Messages With Nokia Cupid

This pretty much sums it up: “Nokia is playing cupid this year for anyone too shy to reveal their true feelings. So if you’d like to send a certain someone a Valentine but are frightened they’ll find out it’s from you, let us deliver a FREE and completely ANONYMOUS text message to your beloved on [...]

Preview: Nokia 6303 classic Phone

It looks like a slider, and it looks like a touch-screen. Unfortunately, the Nokia 6303 is neither – it’s just another budget handset based on the design of the older Nokia 6300. I have to admit, though, it feels like somewhere along the way this phone evolved into some kind of alien device. It’s just [...]

Contests: Win a Nokia N79 Phone From OK! Magazine

Usually the only contests I ever link to are Nokia’s now-defunct “Cool Phone Sweepstakes”, but the grand prize in this latest one in an honest-to-goodness N79. The giveaway is courtesy of OK! Magazine, a magazine that I have never heard of, but it seems legit. At any rate, the entry form will take you at [...]

Five Improvements That Nokia Maps Needs…Badly

Nokia Maps is undoubtedly one of the more useful S60 applications. But there’s a lot of room for improvement – Maps doesn’t stand a chance when pitted against even the most entry-level standalone GPS unit. And wihle it might not be fair to compare the two, if Nokia really wants to embrace the idea of [...]

Get Nokia Messaging Working Again on Your E66/E71

If you’re like me, you recently updated your E66 or E71 (E66 in my case), which completely broke Nokia Messaging. This seems due to the fact that the latest E66/E71 firmwares included something called Nokia Email, which is completely different from Messaging. It’s pretty confusing to say the least.

Preview: Nokia 6700 Classic Phone

Three more S40 phones hit the press this week, with the most notable being the Nokia 6700 Classic phone. Officially, it’s the successor to the Nokia 6300, a middle-of-the-road candy bar that sold like hotcakes. The funny thing about the 6300, however, is that it had no real distinct features, unless you count the stainless [...]
