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 6600i: Sleek S40 Slide Coming in Q3

Correct me if I’m wrong, but the 6600i is the second S40 phone armed with a 5-megapixel camera (no Carl Zeiss, though). The first was the 6260 Slide, a phone that looks and feels strangely similar. And you might be better off with the 6260 Slide, because the 6600i’s a slight downgrade from there. At [...]

Nokia’s E52 Is a Huge Improvement Over the E51

We’re getting awfully close to the second half of 2009, which means a whole slew of new phones coming soon to a Nokia Flagship Store near you. Joining them will be the E52, Nokia’s latest Eseries candy bar. While it might be a little bland in the looks department, it’s got an impressive feature-set including [...]

Rumor Mill: Swivel E71 Contraption Heading to Verizon

The Boy Genius Report reports that a new, swiveling, cell phone just might be coming soon to Verizon Wireless. Wow.

Nokia Starts Things Off in Korea With 6210s

Yay for Korea: after mass producing millions of cell phones for years, the country finally gets one to call their own – the Nokia 6210s. Normally, this would be something to brag about, but here’s the catch: the 6210s is essentially a 6210 Navigator, made in Korea, for Korea. Not to mention that the 6210 [...]

Nokia 1661 Crash Lands at T-Mobile

Wow, what a deal. AT&T gets the chic E71x, and T-mobile gets left with the Nokia 1661, an ultra-budget handset that’s referred to as an “economically priced utility device”. Quick summary: it’s a flashlight with calling features.

E71x To Hit AT&T In May

There were a grand total of two Nseries/Eseries phones ever subsized by AT&T. About zero of them were actually successful. They were the N75 and E62, and both suffered from some major issues: the former had some lousy battery life and heat problems, while the latter looked like a bland, oversized calculator.

Nokia N-Gage Gets Recognized as “R&Dfective”

This one gave me a pretty good laugh: Minyanville did a slideshow of the nine biggest “Consumer-Product Misfires”, and the Nokia N-Gage (the actual gaming device/phone, not the service) made the list thanks to some “huh?” engineering: you needed to remove the battery to insert a new game, and you had to turn it on [...]

Nokia 7205 Intrigue: A CDMA Phone That Actually Looks Decent

It’s good to know that Nokia’s CDMA handsets keep getting progressively better. Better looking, that is. At this rate, Nokia will have quite a looker in 2012.

New Nokia E66 and E71 Firmware Updates Are In

I have to admit, Nokia has done a pretty good job with the whole firmware-updating-thing – at least with the E66 and E71 phones. Today Nokia released 210.21.007 (E66) and 210.21.006 (E71), which are essentially the same update:

Three New XpressMusic Phones Coming Today?

So says Netherlandish blog All About Phones. Apparently there’s a music-themed event coming later on today, with three new phones being announced: the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic, 5330 XpressMusic, and 5030 Xpress Radio (sense a trend here?). And while the 5330 closely resembles the Nokia 5630 XpressMusic phone, it’s not. Confused yet?
