  • 3G UMA Nokia headed to T-Mobile?

    Based on previous rumors surrounding T-Mobile’s upcoming 3G launch comes news of a six-band Nokia passing FCC compliance testing that runs on WCDMA and has UMA capabilities. That 3G launch has got to be close, I can feel it. Read More

  • Spike Lee finally loses last marble, plans on filming documentary with Nokia cameraphones

    Spike Lee is making a feature-length film shot entirely on cellphones. In this, the day when anyone can own a hi-def camera and make decent looking cinema, Lee is taking it down a notch. No, this is down, like, 23 notches, at least. And maybe a rung. He’s an Oscar nominated director, and his idea is to “democratize” film making. He’s partnering with Nokia who will… Read More

  • Renault + Nokia = Nokia Car for Brazil

    Renault, a car maker from France that nobody in America cares about, is partnering with Nokia for a special Nokia-branded Renault car for Brazil, where Nokia is quite popular. The car will feature built-in Nokia communication gear as well as GPS and other technology. They’re a special edition, only 1000 will be made, and will retail for about $27,810. Read More

  • Nokia's 'Comes With Music' signs another major label

    First it was Universal, then EMI expressed interest, and now Sony BMG has hopped aboard Nokia’s “Comes With Music” bandwagon. The basic idea is that certain Nokia devices will include unlimited music downloads for a year. At the end of the year, you’ll apparently be able to keep everything you’ve downloaded and transfer it to your computer and new Nokia… Read More

  • Nokia's 5320 and 5220 are some hot-looking media candybars

    Nokia has dropped some phones. The pictures above are the 5220 – the 5320 isn’t as cool-looking, but sports 3G and "Web 2.0 access," of which I am inexpressibly skeptical. It’s expandable to 8GB of room for music, and also can be used in landscape mode for games, though I fail to see how that works, as there are no buttons by the screen. Both are of the… Read More

  • Nokia's 6212 supports NFC

    Nokia has announced the 6212, which features Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. The NFC technology is designed for simple and intuitive interaction between devices. In the case of the 6212, you can do things like tap two phones together to transfer contact information and other data, or make purchases by storing your personal data in the device and swiping it over a surface. Nokia… Read More

  • David Blaine's going to make the continents magically reunite?


    I periodically check a Blaine fan blog to see if he’s performed any magical madness lately. He hasn’t, but the blogger writes that Blaine is supporting Pangea Day. My first question is what the heck is Pangea Day? Second, how’s he gonna make the 300 million year old puzzle of a landmass fit together? I’ve seen the guy. He’s wiry. For the magically uninclined… Read More

  • First good image of Nokia's Tube show up on the Nets

    Here we have it, Nokianauts, the first official image of the Nokia Tube. Is that a forward facing camera I see? I hope so! The Tube, or 5800, is Nokia’s touch-sensitive answer to the iPhone. We’ve been seeing leaked photos for awhile, but now we know that they were right on. We still don’t know much about the device, but one thing we can tell from this image is that the… Read More

  • More details on Nokia's 'Tube' device

    Like an old man at a urinal, details have slowly been trickling out about Nokia’s upcoming iPhone killer puncher. A post over on Symbian-Freak.com quotes an anonymous “journalist” as saying the following… Read More

  • Nokia "Tube" meant to compete with you know what

    I’m just as sick of writing about this thing as you are of reading about it, but Nokia doesn’t seem to get that. While they’ve been working hard on the “Tube” (we first heard about it in August) the world has moved on and realized the thing from Apple isn’t hot shit anymore. Really, Nokia, you’re approaching 10 months since we first saw the… Read More

  • Nokia officially launches N-Gage mobile service

    Straight from Espoo, Finland (loosely translated from Spanish to English as It’s Poo, Finland!) comes “the global launch of the Nokia N-Gage mobile games service with more games, additional compatible devices, and an expanded online offering.” Nokia handset and device owners will be able to browse, demo, and purchase games directly and can whoop it up with other N-Gage users… Read More

  • Nokia N810 WiMAX hands-on from 180 feet

    Got a chance to play around with the WiMAX-enabled Nokia N810 that’ll be coming out soon. It’s basically the same deal as the currently-available N810 with the added convenience of being able to glom on to WiMAX networks. Nokia had a “Sky Cafe” rigged up to a gigantic crane that hoisted what basically amounted to a metal platform with an island bar and seat-belted… Read More

  • Nokia officially unveils the N810 WiMAX Edition

    Hey, guess what? Remember all the rumors that were floating around about the WiMAX edition of the Nokia N810? Well, Nokia officially took the wraps off of it and I thought I’d tell you. The N810 is pretty much unchanged other than the addition of WiMAX. It comes with a Sprint XOHM account creation wizard to make the transition easy and fast. The N810 will seamlessly switch between Wi-Fi… Read More

  • Nokia N810: The first WiMAX tablet coming (??)

    A link to Nokia Europe shows a Nokia N810 tablet with WiMAX capabilities. It appears to be a standard issue N810 and we can only assume it will appear at CTIA this year. Read More

  • Nokia Siemens doubles speed of EDGE

    This morning Nokia Siemens announced that they’ve doubled the speed of EDGE to 592Kbps via a Dual Carrier EDGE software solution. Existing GSM/EDGE networks will likely benefit from this in Q3 such as T-Mobile unless the government unshackles their 3G network before then. iPhone v1.0 owners will also benefit. Nokia will continue to boost speeds with EGPRS 2, which is said to offer… Read More

  • EMI signs on with Nokia's 'Comes With Music' deal

    Music label EMI has expressed some interest in being the second major label to sign on with Nokia’s “Comes With Music” digital music subscription service. This is a positive move forward and helps to legitimize what basically amounts to an $80 premium per device in exchange for one year of unlimited music downloads. The deal’s not all Chapstick and back rubs, though, as… Read More

  • Nokia 3555 lands at T-Mobile

    Nothing to get too excited over, but T-Mobile announced that Nokia’s quad-band 3555 is available today for $50. The clamshell is MyFaves compatible and features an FM radio, VGA camera with 4x digital zoom for stills and video, IM, stereo Bluetooth, microSD and music player. Like I said, nothing to get excited about. T-Mo Read More

  • noBounds: Show mobile content at full HD on larger screens

    noBounds! – blast Smartphones display bounds! from Bernd Steinke on Vimeo. NoBounds is a new project by Nokia which allows you to stream full HD video at 30 fps from mobiles to televisions. It also enables mouse and keyboard interactions with your tiny, sassy cellphone. Smartphones have a tiny display, since they need to be pocketable. PCs and Notebook do not suffer from this… Read More

  • Un-CrunchDeals: Nokia N810 has mysterious price increase. Wait, what?

    [photopress:439.jpg,full,center] Nokia, you teasing little minx! First you drop the price of the lovely N810 Internet Tablet almost $100 to an iPod Touch-competing $389, making many of us check out bank accounts, and then just like that you raise the price to $439? Why do you do this to us? There are rumors of a WiMAX version to be debuted at CTIA in a few weeks, which a lot of people are… Read More

  • Rumor: WiMAX Nokia tablet launching at CTIA

    If the rumors are true then Nokia will announce the WiMAX N810 tablet that’s been swirling about for months. They did mention it coming way back in August so this seems to make sense. Doug and I will be on the ground to sort it all out for you in April. Nokia N810 with WiMAX launching April 1st at CTIA? [BGR] Read More
