Nokia E7 starts shipping December 10th

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on November 8th, 2010

It’s been a hard wait for future E7 owners. You could have bought yourself an N8 instead, but you have stayed the course. And now your wait is almost over. Nokia has announced that the 4-inch tilting QWERTY handset will start shipping out on the 10th of next month.

Great news. Just hang in there. It won’t be long now. Resist the urge to get the N8, or not, it’s up to you. The excitement is palpable, but just take a deep breath.

Nokia lauches C5-03 Touchscreen Phone

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on October 14th, 2010

Nokia just launched their latest inexpensive touchscreen smartphone, the C5-03. This budget phone is powered by Symbian^1. And even though it is a budget phone, it features a compass and A-GPS feature that can be used with the latest version of the free Ovi Maps hands-free navigation service.

The resistive touchscreen instead of a multi-touch capacitive display is lame, but the features aren’t too bad though. You get a 3.2-inch resistive touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Compass, Ovi Maps, 40MB of user memory, microSD card support up to 16GB, 11.5-hour talktime on GSM, 4.5-hours on 3G, 24-25 day standby time, Symbian^1, and a 5-megapixel camera.

Nokia N8 gets torn apart

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on October 8th, 2010

The Nokia N8 is shipping to Nokia fans right now and the folks over at iFixit were happy to get their hands on one too. As usual, they decided to take it apart. Some good news is that the BL-4D battery is only two screws away from being user-replaceable.

There are also the massive Xenon flash and camera modules, which are not removable from the main board. Remember these folks are professionals. Do not disassemble your N8 unless you know what you’re doing. You may not be able to put it all back together.

Nokia Star Trek Communicator

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on September 16th, 2010

You probably already know that Nokia had some product placement in the latest Star Trek, but Nokia also made a few never-released prototypes for the movie. The beautiful “Starfleet Communicator” above apparently one of only 14 units made by Nokia, is intended to look like the comms of the original TV series.

It’s based on the N76 and comes with an external LCD and a trio of lights on front, with the familiar brass grill. It’s a fully functioning phone that really chirps when you flip it open. How awesome is that?

Nokia C3 Touch and Type unveiled at Nokia World 2010

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on September 15th, 2010

Nokia World 2010 gave the company a chance to debut the Nokia C3 Touch and Type. This model merges both a traditional keyboard and a touchscreen display, bringing the best of both worlds to the device. Single-handed operation is what its about.

Some features include Wi-Fi, quad band support, 3G/HSPA support, Nokia Messaging 3.0, and a 5-megapixel camera with flash. The stainless steel case makes for a classy looking exterior. You can choose from Silver, Warm grey and Khaki Gold colors.

Nokia to intro E7 next week

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on September 6th, 2010

Nokia’s plans for its in-house Nokia World expo should include the first mainstream Eseries touchscreen phone, according to leaks. The E7 is a touchscreen QWERTY model. Aside from that we don’t have many details, but it may be a Symbian^3 slider similar to the MeeGo-using N9.

The London event should also be used to confirm that the N8 is finally shipping, a mere seven months after it was first unveiled. Of course other new smartphones are expected to come along too, but we don’t know which ones.

Nokia C6-01 to run Symbian^3?

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on August 30th, 2010

The Nokia C6-01 first showed up back in July, and aside from the 8-megapixel camera, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 360 x 640 pixel touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Ovi Maps, it looks like it has another trick.

It might run Symbian^3. A Bulgarian online retailer uploaded some photos of the C6-01 which showed off the Symbian^3 operating system. Now mysteriously, the photos have changed to show Symbian^1, so we aren’t sure exactly what is going on. Hopefully we will learn more soon.

Vodafone Nokia N8 green edition

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on August 26th, 2010

Nokia’s savior, the N8, will be available from Vodafone in this lovely shade of green as an exclusive. This new Symbian^3-powered smartphone won’t be available anywhere else. Just Vodafone in the UK.

This lovely green smartphone will be available for purchase later this year if that is your color. You’ll need to sign up for Nokia N8 updates at the Vodafone website while saving up some cash if you want to know when it will arrive. The main draw of the Nokia N8 is its camera, with a Xenon flash, 12-megapixels and the biggest sensor ever seen in a camera phone.

Indian farmer killed by exploding mobile phone

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on August 22nd, 2010

It was not a good day for Farmer Gopal Gujjar of Bandha village in Rajasthan. It was a bad day for Nokia as well. Gujjar’s phone exploded in his face. Nokia initially had a problem with their battery, the BL-5C, that was only rumored to explode while charging.

Apparently that was not the case at all as Gujjar’s Nokia 1209 exploded in his face while he was working with his cattle and having a conversation. The explosion caused severe burns to his left ear, neck, and shoulders which turned out to be fatal. This is the first time a phone has exploded without being hooked up to a charger.

Nokia N8 release date is September 2010 for $550, Pre-orders have begun

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on August 16th, 2010

Will Nokia’s latest Nokia N8 smartphone save the company? We shall see. Those of us living in the US will be able to place a pre-order for the N8 for $550 and it is expected to ship at the end of September 2010.

So it will likely hit the scene after the Nokia World Event ends on September 15th. The N8 is the first 12-megapixel smartphone from Nokia, offering HD video recording, HDMI output and 16GB of internal memory. It’s no iPhone. That’s for sure.

Updated MeeGo Smartphone UI revealed

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2010

MeeGo fans will be happy to get a glimpse of MeeGo’s pre-release stock UI for devices. However just like Symbian, there’s no guarantee that the experience is going to be consistent across manufacturers. There’s a video apparently captured from an online survey that makes it seem like Nokia might be going in a different direction.

Some of the improvements include a powerful multitasking user interface, Ovi Store integration, updated music player, and more. Check out a video below to see what Nokia has been up to recently.

Nokia C6-01 to have an 8 MP camera, Ovi Maps

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on July 18th, 2010

Nokia fans will be pleased to know that the C6-01 has an 8 megapixel camera along with dual-LED flash. You’ll also get all of usual features like Wi-fi, GPS with Ovi Maps, a QWERTY keyboard, etc.

The C6-01 appeared on Nokia Netherlands’ official website, although it wasn’t officially announced in a press release. Pictured is the back of the C6-01. The front of the C6-01 is similar to the C6-00. The phone is priced at €279 (the C6-00 should be around €220).

Renesas Electronics to buy Nokia modem operations for $200M

Posted in Nokia by Shane McGlaun on July 6th, 2010

Nokia may be the largest maker of mobile phones in the world, but most of the devices it sells are low-end handsets with little profit. Nokia wants a bigger part of the lucrative smartphone market and is making moves to concentrate more on its core offerings.

To do this Nokia has announced that it is selling its LTE, HSPA, and GSM modem operations to Renesas Electronics. The company has been licensing the Nokia modem tech since 2009.

You can hold Nokia phones however you want

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on June 28th, 2010

When Steve Jobs addressed the iPhone 4′s antenna issue by telling people they are holding it wrong, Nokia seized the opportunity over at its official blog, where they tell readers that “whether you’re left-handed or right-handed, there’s no shortage of ways to hold your phone.”

And that’s how it should be with any gadget. To design a product like crap and then tell people they are holding it wrong is just lame. Good one Nokia. And for the record, I will hold any phone any way I like and it better still work.

Nokia special edition V handsets

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on June 24th, 2010

If you live in the UK, pay attention. Nokia will be rolling out the X6V and the Nokia 5230V special edition handsets at Glastonbury. Nokia is going all out too. Kasabian and Kings of Leon are headlining the event and Nokia has also teamed up with Virgin Media to unveil the two devices.

Both will come pre-loaded with lots of V Festival extras including wallpapers and an application that lets you plan the weekend with a GPS-enabled map of each site. The Nokia X6V won’t cost you anything upfront, though you will need to pay £20 a month (£15 for Virgin Media customers), while the Nokia 5230V retails for £15 a month (£10 for Virgin Media customers).
