    Hands on with the Nokia N810

    I’m so thankful I found something worthwhile from this trip to San Francisco. Behold the N810 Internet tablet. It’s awesome. A very nice form factor that makes the N800 look like a fatty, fat, fat, fat. I wants it, too. Read More

    Reuters' N95-equipped toolkit for on-the-go reporters

    As a well-respected, professional, hard-hitting technology journalist, I can appreciate what this kit has to — buwahahahaaaa!! I’m sorry, I couldn’t get though it all. Well-respected! Professional! Journalist! L! O! L! Anyhoo, Reuters came up with an interesting idea to try out with some of its reporters that entailed the use of an entirely mobile setup consisting of a Nokia… Read More

    Nokia Mosh: What the feck is it?

    We were the first to drop the ball on Nokia Mosh a few weeks back and I didn’t pay too much attention to it because I figured it to be another social networking site. I picked up on it because they were poking fun at Apple and attempting to lure folks burned by the price cut to check it out. Well, I’ve spent a bit of time tinkering with the site and sat down with George… Read More

    Bloomberg, Nokia want you to man up, recycle that old cell phone

    I’m the treehugger at CrunchGear and I make it known every chance I get. I don’t overwhelm you with facts and figures or any of that nonsense, but I do put in a gadget here and there. Now this isn’t a gadget, but it does involve your old mobile device that’s just sitting in your junk drawer so listen up. Today is the start of Nokia’s campaign to collect… Read More

    Vertu Ti shipping, men with small weenies, dried-up crones rejoice


    I’m glad Nokia made the Vertu line. They deserve to have a little fun. But a $7,000 cellphone is just about the upper limit of what I can accept in the luxury market. Dear Oil-rich Sultans and Oligarchs: send me your old Nokia and I’ll dip it in golden paint and send it back to you for $3,500. You’ll get the same effect while spending half of what you’d normally spend on… Read More

    Nokia Maps

    Nokia is buying digital mapmaker Navteq for $8 billion. (See WSJ coverage here).  Navteq powers many in-car navigation services, but it is also one of the providers of mapping data used in Google Maps. Every mobile device should include mapping services. It’s a natural fit. But will Nokia try to charge extra for this or will every future Nokia phone come with free maps? You can… Read More

    Nokia Bluetooth Headset BH-501 Review

    I know I’ve called Bluetooth headset users tools before, but that’s because I’m a jerk and this is the perfect place for me to call people names. I keed, I keed. Just to be clear I think the tools are the ones who keep their headsets on when they’re obviously not going to be getting any calls like on the subway. It’s not cool looking anymore. You don’t look… Read More
