  • Nokia falls short of their own predictions for Q3

    Anybody hedging bets on Nokia’s Q3 market share results at the local mobile market gambling hall based off of the company’s previous predictions might want to see if they can weasel their way out. Where as Nokia previously predicted that their third quarter sales would be right on par with those of the second, they’re now warning folks that it may come in a bit lower than… Read More

  • Nokia N96 now shipping: Who *doesn't* want one, really?

    The Nokia N96 is now shipping, for the before-subsidy (if you find any) price of 550 Euros, or about $794. An $800 cellphone? I guess that’s why Nokia is wisely calling it a “multimedia computer.” To be fair, just looking at the specs sorta makes me say, “iPhone, what’s that?” Built-in 5-megapixel camera and 16GB memory (expandable to 24GB with microSD… Read More

  • No VoIP for Nokia's N78?


    While Nokia has typically included VoIP functions in many of its smart phones—much to the chagrin of carriers—it looks like the top handset maker may be changing its stance, and removing VoIP on some of its new N-series handsets. Gigaom reported that the N78 is not VoIP compatible and when they asked Nokia why, the company replied: “Nokia Nseries is committed VoIP services… Read More

  • FCC spills the beans on Nokia 2680 for AT&T

    Sometimes, the FCC can be an outlet for the most interesting of goods. Other times, the only things they have to share are things like the Nokia 2680 slider phone. There’s nothing wrong with the Nokia 2680 – baseline handsets are a key product for the huge chunk of the market that isn’t completely obsessed with their phone. Hell, we wouldn’t even make fun of you if… Read More

  • Fring adds Nokia E66 support

    Fring has a thing for Nokia as of late, it seems. It wasn’t too long ago that they added N810 support; then two days ago, they added support for the Nokia E71. Now they’ve gone and added the Nokia E66 to the list. I’d point out that there are other handsets Fring can be adding support for, but it seems like they’ve already got most of them covered.

  • Images of Nokia Tube keep on comin'


    I’m not really sure what to make of these images. They’re clearly showcasing the Tube‘s Web browser, but images clearly don’t do anything to get us excited about this device. How about some video, dailymobile.se? Read More

  • Bad reception on your Nokia E71? Just don't touch it.

    According to BGR, the Nokia E71’s signal catchin’ abilities aren’t exactly meeting expectations. In places where signal generally flourishes, they’re reporting little to no service. The problem purportedly stems from the placement of the cellular antenna. Tucked behind the only plastic part of the phone, the antenna hangs out down near the bottom of the rear side of… Read More

    Some people, like Peter Ha, text like it’s their job.
