• More Nokia cellphones on the way for America

    Nokia plans to release lots more cellphones here in the U.S. in the next “few months.” Seeing as though Nokia makes some fairly decent phones, that’s not bad news at all. Nokia, which is based in Finland, sells 40 percent of phones globally, but its lack of CDMA love has lead to a smaller numbers here since CDMA is still in use by the likes of Verizon Wireless and Sprint. Oh… Read More

  • The May 1 Meet-up Ovi Stream, Courtesy of Nokia Here are some initial shots of the CrunchNetwork May 1 meet-up — an event, I might add, that went off without a hitch. The attendees enjoyed fine beverage, a real Rock Band band made up of members of the Harmonix team, which… Read More

  • Nokia drops a trio of mid-range, slick phones

    Three new phones to Nokia today, including two that are apparently a variant on the same model. The 6600 Fold is similar to the 6600 Slide, except that it’s a clamshell instead of a slider, as the names would imply. They’re not identical though, as one would assume from the model number. The slide has a 2-Megapixel camera, OLED screen, 3G connectivity and a flash. The Fold has… Read More

  • Nokia N810 WiMAX edition priced like we told you a month ago

    We told you how much it would be a month ago, but some people just don’t listen. We’re off by a few dollars, but we were correct in our initial claim. I don’t understand how it’s already sold out, though. Are there that many people in Chicago and DC that want this thing? I guess I’d buy one if I were in an active WiMAX market. Read More

  • Trolltech's QT, Ubuntu coming to Nokia Internet tablets

    I’m a fan of the Nokia 800-series Internet tablets, and Nokia is making effort to keep them current. It recently bought Trolltech and is in the process of finalizing the purchase. Trolltech makes the QT applications platform that many devices use, and Nokia is no doubt planning on bringing QT to the N810 and perhaps future tablet devices. What’s also notable is Nokia is working… Read More

  • 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 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
