Iconic Nokia 3310 Updated and Relaunched (0)

During the mobile phones early history, Nokia stood to be the model that most people all over the world knew. They were the company that came out with the coolest mobile phones that established the standard and became quite popular. Many of their mobile phone models have become classics and even became historical icons. One of them is the very popular Nokia 3310 mobile phone. Although the popularity of the brand has waned over the years, especially with the smartphones taking over the market, there is still that nostalgic feeling whenever Nokia comes to mind. Based on such attachment, a company has reintroduced and launched an updated Nokia 3310 phone into the market. HMD Global, a Finnish start up, will be introducing a new version of the iconic Nokia 3310 mobile phone under a licensing agreement with Nokia. Unlike the classic predecessor, the new Nokia 3310 is updated to also include web browsing and a host of other features like a 2 MP camera. The new Nokia 3310 model still evokes that classic design reminiscent of the old Nokia 3310, albeit more streamlined and with a 2.4-inch colored display. It also has a better battery that can last for days without having to reach out for that charger every now and then. Let it be known that the new Nokia 3310 is a feature phone and is not designed to compete with any of the smartphones of today. It offers the basic functions such as text messaging and making calls using a better interface and with upgraded technology. The new Nokia 3310  is for those who yearn for the simplicity of past mobile phones as well as for people who are happy fools for nostalgia. The new Nokia 3310 phone is currently available in Europe and Asia. It is priced around 49 Euros or around US$52. Image Source: Nokia Read More

Nokia Not Yet Dead After All, Introduces The Nokia N1 Tablet (0)

There were concerns regarding the possible demise of the Nokia brand when it comes to consumer electronic devices. The Nokia Lumia line was recently taken over by Microsoft when it announced the Lumia 535 recently. People thought that it is the end of an era for the popular brand. But then all these thoughts changed when Nokia recently announced it is introducing a new device in the form of the new Nokia N1 Tablet. The new Nokia N1 Tablet recently made the rounds online with images to boot. It may be an unorthodox move from Nokia to say that it is still alive in kicking. By the initial attention, the company may be going in the right, although quite unfamiliar territory. Departing from its forte in making mobile phones to introducing a new tablet may be another direction for Nokia. But it is not their first one. They have already previously forayed into this market with their forgettable Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet. But now they are doing it with Android. The Nokia N1 will come out with a 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor and a 2GB RAM along with 32GB of storage. The tablet does not seem to have a micro-SD slot, instead has a reversible USB Type C port. It also comes with an 8MP rear and a 5MP front cameras. Its 7.9-inch screen comes in an elegant milled aluminum chassis. All these features are packed into a tablet that is just 6.9mm thin. The Nokia N1 also features some Nokia software aside from the usual Android stuff. There is the Z Launcher for example that offers letter recognition features to allow users to scribble directly into the home screen to pull out apps, make search queries and others. The Nokia N1 is a WiFi only tablet and is expected to come out sometime in February next year. It is expected to cost around $250. Image Source: Nokia Read More

Nokia 130: Microsoft-owned phone with 36-day battery life (0)

Microsoft-owned Nokia's attempt to dominate the basic cellphone market begins with the $25 Nokia 130. It may look old school, but it comes with basic smartphone features such as music and video capabilities, as well as a battery that will last for over a month. The Nokia 130 is the first Nokia phone unveiled since Microsoft bought the phone-manufacturing unit of the Finnish electronics company. Also, since Microsoft plans to ditch the brand, it is perhaps one of the last phones with Nokia written on it, but not before building up Windows Phone in developing regions where the smartphone market is blooming (even though it technically runs in a different mobile OS, the Series 30+). The candy bar phone sports a 1.8-inch color screen (not a touchscreen), a nine-button keypad, and function keys in the middle. It has music and video capabilities, a built-in FM radio, and a microSD slot for up to 32GB of audio and recorded video. Its battery lasts 36 days on standby, which is an impressive amount when most smartphones would not even last 36 hours. In a statement, Microsoft says its latest mobile phone will be available in selected countries, including China, Indonesia, India, Kenya, Pakistan, Nigeria, Vietnam, Philippines, and Egypt. The Nokia 130 will roll out "this quarter," or until September, and will come with single and dual-SIM models. Source: CNET Read More

Nokia X2: Microsoft’s First Android Phone Unveiled (0)

Microsoft announces the launch of the Nokia X2, which can be considered as the tech company's first Android-powered device. The X2 is an entry-level smartphone that sets its aims on emerging markets. This is not the first time Nokia ventured to Android, as it announced the X, X+, and XL smartphones in February, before Microsoft acquired the company's mobile phone business unit in April. The Nokia X Class line of devices--including the Nokia X2--runs on Android mobile OS, but its user interface is based on Windows Phone's tile-based experience and has a bevy of Microsoft services. Microsoft calls X2's operating system as the "Nokia X software platform 2.0," which includes three types of home screens: one that resembles Windows Phone's Live Tiles, one that puts priority on recent apps, and one that allows users to pin content to the home screen. Another difference from the Nokia X2 compared to your usual Android device is that this smartphone does not use any Google services and uses Microsoft's instead. This means Gmail is replaced with Outlook.com, Google Drive is switched to OneDrive, Bing instead of Google Searceh, you get the picture. It also uses Opera's mobile browser instead of Android's native browser. As for the physical specs, the Nokia X2 sports a 4.3-inch display with 800 x 480 resolution and Gorilla Glass, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage, a 5-megapixel back camera with flash and 720p HD video capture, a 0.3-megapixel front camera, a microSD card slot, and a lot of sensors and connectivity options (except 4G LTE). The dual-SIM version Nokia X2 will be sold first in India, Indonesia, and Africa beginning July starting at $135. It is highly unlikely this smartphone will become available in North America, where Microsoft continues to sell Nokia's Lumia-branded Windows Phones. Source: Information Week Read More

Nokia officially announces acquisition to Microsoft (0)

As reported, Nokia has officially announced the acquisition of its devices and services business to Microsoft over the weekend. Nokia has long been offering mobile phones that run on Windows Phone, and Microsoft has announced its new arm will continue to support Nokia's feature phone that do not run on Windows Phone such as Asha and Nokia X ranges. The press releases from both companies do not reveal much about future plans or shift in focus. "Today we welcome the Nokia Devices and Services business to our family. The mobile capabilities and assets they bring will advance our transformation," Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said. "Together with our partners, we remain focused on delivering innovation more rapidly in our mobile-first, cloud-first world." Former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, who has since moved on to become Microsoft's head of hardware division, also released a similar statement: "As Microsoft and Nokia Devices and Services come together as an expanded family, we will unify our passion, dedication and commitment to bringing you the best of what our joint technologies have to offer."

Nokia to be renamed Microsoft Mobile (0)

Nokia as we know it will be gone... as least by name. Microsoft will complete its acquisition of the Finnish company's phone unit, Nokia Oyj, and will be renamed Microsoft Mobile Oy by April 25. According to a leaked letter to Nokia's suppliers, Microsoft will gain control of all rights, benefits, and obligations of Nokia Devices and Services business unit. "This acquisiion will help Microsoft accelerate innovation and market adoption for Windows Phone," Microsoft's Executive Vice President of Legal and Corporate Affairs Brad Smith said in a statement. "In addition, we look forward to introducing the next billion customers to Microsoft services via Nokia mobile phones." The statement also includes revisions from the original agreement, including taking Nokia employees in China into Microsoft, having originally been designated to stick with the former. Microsoft will also take control and manage the nokia.com domain, as well as Nokia's official social media channels for at least a year. Will Microsoft Mobile be able to turn its struggling fortunes? Data from global consumer analyst Kantar Worldwide ComTech shows that Windows had a 10 percent market share for smartphones in United Kingdom on February 2014, compared to a 32 percent share for iOS and 54 percent for Android.

Nokia X Android smartphone unveiled (0)

After revealing its surprising partnership with Android during Mobile World Congress, Nokia has formally released its Android-equipped smartphone to selected markets in Asia and Africa. The mid-range Nokia X handset sells around $150 (price adjusted per country) and encompasses the most popular mobile phones in developing markets. "Our primary strategy on smartphones is Lumia and the Nokia X will be a feeder platform into the Lumia," Nokia India's managing director P. Balaji told the Economic Times during the smartphone's launch in South Asia. "We see the opportunity for Nokia X in the affordable smartphone category where most consumers want the apps from Android." The Nokia X features a 4-inch WVGA IPS screen with 800 x 480 resolution and 233ppi, dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 8225 processor, Adreno 203 GPU, 4GB of storage (expandable up to 32GB via microSD), and only 512MB of RAM. It has Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi, and a microUSB port. Although the phone runs on Android, the Nokia X does not sport any other Google apps like Google Search, Google Maps, and even Google Play. Instead, users can access the Nokia Store and download Bing and Here Maps, as well as the ability to download Android apps through third-party app stores. Nokia will also unveil two more Android smartphones, namely the Nokia X+ and XL within the coming months. Source: CNET Read More

Nokia Android smartphone coming this February? (0)

As Nokia completely gives off its entire mobile business unit to Microsoft, it does not mean the Finnish device maker will sit around doing nothing. The Wall Street Journal reported that a Nokia Android-based smartphone is actually in the works, with an expected debut at the Mobile World Congress two weeks from now. The report claims that Nokia has been developing an Android mobile device while Microsoft got down to the nitty-gritty of the transaction. Both companies announced in September that Microsoft would be acquiring Nokia's mobile division and patents for a whopping $7.4 billion. The Nokia Android device will be available in emerging markets and will not include key features commonly seen on similar devices, such as access to Google Play Store. Instead, the smartphone would be Nokia's update on its low-cost Asha handsets. Both Microsoft and Nokia have yet to respond on the rumor.
