  • Nokia 5610 incoming with FCC's blessing


    I actually almost took this phone’s little brother, the 5310, when I switched over to T-Mobile. Nice and compact, decent media playing ability. Looks like the 5610 sports all the good stuff the 5310 has, but better camera and battery life and probably a lot of changes that would be more noticeable to a person who had the old version. I imagine you can expect it to bust into your… Read More

  • T-Mobile keeps on giving

    No disrespect to the original, but BHIC does a damn good job here. Give it a minute before you hit the jump for the one and only. Looking to switch carriers? T-mobile near the top of the list? Well, the deal just got sweeter because they’re waiving the $35 activation fee for n00bs until the end of the year. So scoot on over to your local store or check out the site. The Curve, Sidekick… Read More

  • N-Gage First Access delayed till next year

    One week after promising us that N-Gage First Access would be available [this week], Nokia went ahead and delayed it. The improved N-Gage, which is now a service for the N81 rather than a stand-along cellphone, has now been delayed till 2008 in order to work ensure that it works “smoothly.” An exact date hasn’t been released, but you can bet that Nokia just ruined dozens… Read More

  • Smartphones Now: Symbian

    Ask the average American about Symbian and they’ll look at you blankly. In the grand pantheon of mobile OSes, it is the dashing, shadowy figure with the charming accent to sneaks into your life through Nokia and some Sony Ericsson phones. At its core, Symbian is fairly basic. It works as equally well on a basic candybar phone as it does on one of S-E’s high end personal communicators. Read More

  • It's the Nokia N96!

    It certainly looks real. The photos are a little grainy, but the N96 badging seems legit. The hardware also doesn’t look like anything else Nokia has produced. Check em out. Read More

  • Maemo OS2008 for Nokia N800/810 looks hot

    OS2008 is officially available for the N800 and it looks pretty hot. The web-browsing is almost perfect now — Flash video looks good — and Ajax web apps work as well. There are some new application manaement features and more codec support as well as a video converter for DivX/Xvid. Tabletblog is just giddy about theirs so maybe we should all download ASAP. Internet Tablet… Read More

  • RotateMe, a free Symbian app to automatically rotate your mobile's screen

    One of the handy things about phones like the iPhone and Ocean is the ability to switch between landscape and portrait depending on what app, game, or media you’re using. Well, a nice guy named Samir has written up a little Symbian app that lets you rotate your screen using a hotkey or, if you have an N95, by turning the screen. Handy, that. And it doesn’t appear to break… Read More

  • Meanwhile, uptown, the N-Gage appears

    Way to destroy our hopes for a usable gaming system for Nokia phones that will never be as good as standalone consoles like the DS or PSP and will be considered an afterthought by all but the most dedicated gamers and game manufacturers! Nokia announced that it would roll out its new N-Gage platform on the N81 and N81 8GB and offer “one or more games.” As one poster… Read More

  • Mobile Browser Showdown: N95's Opera vs iPhone's Safari. Winner: Opera

    There has been some dispute over the speed of the browsers on these next-gen phones. N95 users say that the 3G connection makes all the difference, iPhone users say EDGE is just fine when you’ve got a great app like Safari. As it turns out, they seem to go at about the same speed in their natural habitats, but when you throw a 3rd-party browser into the mix, it’s all over. Opera… Read More

  • Nokia wants its US market share back

    Remember back when everyone basically had the same cell phone? Those old, brickey Nokias? Well Nokia misses that feeling and wants to claw its way back into the US market again. Its market share here in the states is about 10%, down from 28% five years ago according to the New York Times. Much of the reasoning behind Nokia’s fall from grace has to do with "its refusal to adapt… Read More

  • 3G phone for T-mobile! Too bad T-Mobile has no 3G network

    Behold, the Nokia 6263! Not much to look at, but I’m told that deep within its silicon heart lurks the capability to communicate at blinding speeds on a 3rd Generation network that, well, doesn’t exist for it. I feel bad for the poor thing, forced to work at data rates that make it want to flash its own bios. Oh, to join its brethren in two-way video chats and full-featured browsing! Read More

  • Free Universal Music with purchase of select Nokia cellphones starting next year

    Nokia, the Finnish cellphone maker, and Universal Music Group, which serves no purpose in 2007, have cut a deal that will allow users of certain Nokia phones to download the entire music catalog of Universal. The program, which is set to launch for consumers sometime in the second half of 2008, will have users trading in vouchers (that comes with eligible cellphones) for the ability to… Read More

  • Nokia internet radio – enhanced for your pleasure

    I don’t listen to the radio much, but maybe that’s because I don’t have one at my fingertips at all times. Nokia is introducing a streaming radio service that will be available for their N81, N91 and N95 phones, as well as upcoming phones that will have the service embedded. There are tons of stations to choose from, and you can also browse by what’s popular country… Read More

  • RC controlled by N95

    This is a pretty neat mod from ShakerRacer that uses the N95’s accelerometer via Bluetooth. Are our recent N95 winners willing to rig an RC with Bluetooth and test this out for us? Read More

  • Nokia N810 unboxed and scrutinized

    Peter the Ha was lucky enough to get a little face time with the N810 a month ago and Ars Technica got to play around with one yesterday as well. They found it to be "impressive" but think that the keyboard could have been executed better, which is somewhat unfortunate because the Nokia Internet Tablet family has been aching for the inclusion of real keys since the 770. I like that… Read More

  • America Recycles Day is tomorrow, dump your crap on Microsoft's campus

    Just a reminder to everyone that tomorrow is America Recycles Day. In order to “Make an Effort to Make a Difference” Nokia and Microsoft have partnered up to collect your scrap electronic materials for recycling tomorrow at Microsoft’s Silicon Valley Campus. We know you have old computers, cell phones, TVs, monitors and whatever else lying around so why not trek on over… Read More

  • Nokia officializes N82

    Yes, I know, the N82 was leaked yesterday, but in case you’re wondering, here are some details. The latest Finnish handset features A-GPS, 5-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, Carl Zeiss optics and Wi-Fi. It seems like it’s a pretty good camera phone and Nokia certainly wants you snap pics and take video with the inclusion of a 2GB microSD card. Press Release Read More

    Well look at that. Early photos of the N82 that’s launching tomorrow. Nokia N82 Press Pics leaked on Nokia site [Unwired View] Read More
