They may be copying Apple's boring design approach as well: The Nokia head of design was sacked the first thing the deal was published. Great start...

With Apple's mapping technology, it is kind of irrelevant what they bring out. It will be extraneous to anyone living in the real world, anyway, like Apple Maps has been since its introduction.

Producing a RT tablet now is like investing in a black hole. Don't Nokia have better projects on which to expend resources this autumn? With the money invested in the manufacturing process and...

You can write it the other way round as well: WP is focusing on superior photography on this device, a real-world differentiating user experience for the most common use case of a smartphone after...

I wonder what the sound quality of the 520 is with head phones. It cannot pack but a cheap audio chipset, so I would be surprised if it can replace an iPod as a music player. Even my iPhone 5...

People throw around this "X buys Y" like it was a toss of a coin. Nokia + NSN have 150.000 employees with most of the business having nothing to do with Lumias. Nokia is a networks, feature phones...

WP8/WP7 ratio advanced only by 4 percentage points. The only conclusion: WP sales have slowed down during the summer and nothing but 520 sells. Or Adduplex's data are bogus. Which they may well be...

Not as coders, but as project and product managers for sure, if i know anything about organizations. Successful people sometimes move forward; and those who contrived MS-DOS sure have had...

A non-laggy Android experience finally available? That is sure exciting news!

It seems Google could kill WP once and for all and for good by simply refusing to support EAS. I am curious why they do not do this. It would be in pefect alignment with their corporate culture,...

"This dream had its roots with the original iPhone, a smartphone of many firsts, among them a reasonably good camera."

LOL. Are you serious here, Paul? iPhone had the first decent camera?...

The problem with RT is that it does nto know what it is or wants to become. Plus it is not yet even release-ready as it stands now, at 8.0. It is a poor Metro implementation with a confusing "...

Here in Europe I increasingly come across those situations where a company or organization advertises that an app has recently been made available for Android and WP but not (yet or at all) for...

Given my bad experience with Android in general and tablets running this inefficient and fiddly OS in particular, I will pass. I am waiting for the next generation of Windows mini tablets, which...

They have made those in the past, and in fact pioneered the concept. It seems to have become a niche genre with the advent of delicate smarthpones.

Well, inexpensive Androids are utterly-ridiculously poor, yet the more the Asian makers churn those out, the more leverage and prestige the platform seems to be gaining. Ask any Indian or Chinese...

Parents who care about their small children do not buy them smartphones, of course, but only very basic phones that offer reliable calls and a week'...

Actually, a modern Linux desktop is much easier to use than a modern Android tablet or a phone. With an Ubuntu-like desktop, all the user needs to do is start using it. Everything is available out...

It will not sell in the US at that price point. It may sell some in Europe and Asia. But then, I guess this is aimed purely as a niche product that also acts as a brand builder -- rather than...

Amen to this. People who follow companies and products too closely (fans) tend to invariably miss the actual, relevant faults in those products. For W8 that main fault is not being addressed,...

"While Nokia has set themselves above and beyond the rest (a win for them!) the platform as a whole suffers when I tell my son to grab "such and such app", but he can't because he's using a...

1080p screens are welcome, should MS realize they exist. But Androids with quadcores often lag in simply moving from one home screen to another, or browsing a menu. That's some quadcore magic...

Come on. Nokia sold more Symbian phones in 2012 than WPs despite having ran the platform down and having done no R&D on it for two years. More, freaking, Symbians! How on Earth could Android...

"For Nokia, on the other hand, a tie-up with MS was it's only realistic shot at relevance. Android was a dead end (for Nokia), and there was no third option, given the support that platform...

Nokia plus Nokia-Siemens Networks (which Nokia may soon (have to) buy back completely) have more employees than Microsoft has. Nokia without the networks business alone has about the same number...

The Drive+ license should become available for purchase on those (lower end) handsets that ship without it. Only no-one seems to know when.

Tuesday, June 18, 2013 - 02:57

In fact, some non-English tech magazines do not even consider WP a smartphone platform owing to these deficiencies. They talk about it as a multimedia phone or web phone or what ever. iPhones and...

So one can not edit the Word document using its styles? Which, if true, means there is no meanignful way to edit it wihtout breaking it. Really?

People who buy expensive products are happy with their purchases. People who buy inexpensive products (WP, Android owners) are less so. That is why a Mercedes owner is happier with failing...

The control centre looks hideous. Is this Apple? And the new icons are utterly Jonny Ive: Naivete to the extreme. Over-saturated yet without clarity and contrast in esential UI elemnets, over-...
