Nokia’s N950 torn apart by FCC

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on June 26th, 2011

Looks like the FCC has already torn apart Nokia’s new MeeGo development phone. And it looks like the rumors of watered-down N9 specs are true, except for a 12-megapixel camera, which is a nice addition.

The N950′s official specs list an 8-megapixel camera, so this is certainly a bonus. And the N950 obviously has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The non-user-accessible BL-4D battery is lower capacity than the N9, at 1,320 mAh.

Specs remain a mystery though. At least we have some images. It looks rather pretty and shows off bicycles very well. That much we can see in the image above. More when we have it.

Nokia E6, X7 show up early in official promo videos

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on April 10th, 2011

British carrier 3 and Nokia have posted some videos of the E6 and X7. The X7 features a four-inch ClearBlack display as well as an eight-megapixel camera and a newly updated version of Symbian. You can expect the browser to be three times faster than it is in Symbian^3 devices like the N8 and it looks like it will feature a portrait ratio on-screen keyboard instead of making you switch into landscape mode.

We don’t know much about the E6, but it will be the first modern Symbian device with a 4:3 ratio screen and a fixed QWERTY keyboard. It packs a 640×480 resolution screen, and it should have up with 720p video recording along with other modern features.

Nokia expects phone delays due to Japanese quake

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on March 21st, 2011

When we base so much of the world’s tech in one area of the globe, there are bound to be problems when natural disasters strike. Nokia has issued a statement on its operations in light of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The company’s end results for the quarter probably won’t be affected, but some gadgets may be delayed as the parts supply has been understandably interrupted. The company has pledged to do it’s best to work with suppliers inside and outside of Japan to work around the problem if they have to.

As you might expect, many technology companies have been affected by the Japanese quake and Tsunami. Some have had killed or wounded employees, or had their factories damaged etc. I think we would all just wish for them to get some stability at home and be safe before we worry about delays of our devices.

The charger also sports a 2-mm charger interface and provides 28 minutes of talk time for every 10 minutes spent riding between 6kph (4mph) and 50kph (31mph). Europeans can pick one up from Nokia’s online store. The rest of us will have to wait.

T-Mobile bound Nokia 1616 hits the FCC

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on December 31st, 2010

The FCC was recently introduced to the Nokia 1616 and they got along great. They had polite conversation, tea, a nice dinner, back home at the FCC for coffee, then woke up next to each other smiling the next morning. And so the handset was deemed worthy of arriving Stateside via T-Mobile.

If everything goes as planned, it will probably be part of T-Mobile’s prepaid phone lineup. We have no idea what T-Mobile would price this feature phone at, but we are confident in guessing about $15 or $20. Somewhere around there.

Well, the initial batch of N8 handsets worldwide have begun to suffer from problems concerning power issues, including a dead phone that won’t boot up or light up even with a charger plugged in.

This was originally thought to be an isolated case, but has now expanded into a 6 page thread on the official Nokia forums. Things aren’t looking good for Nokia’s flagship phone. Hopefully there is some kind of fix coming soon.
