A couple of weeks ago, Nokia officially launched their second Windows Phone 8.1 handset, the Nokia Lumia 930, in the Philippine market. I liked its smaller brother, the Lumia 630, especially given the price point. Realizing that its older brother might turn out to be the last phone to be branded as a Nokia phone before we see Microsoft Mobility etched onto the subsequent ones, I hoped it’ll blow our minds.
Following the successful launch of Windows 8.1 and the first phone to carry it, the venerable Nokia Lumia 630, the higher end flagship carrier of the platform has officially been made available here in the Philippines. The specs of the phone is pretty much awesome on paper.
The latest installment of one of the most popular first person shooters on smartphones and tablets is finally out, raising the bar even more for the genre on mobiles.
Yes, the update is coming to both platforms, the list of what’s new is enough to make any WP8 users shout, “It’s over 9000!”. For Windows 8 users, that means You’re being bumped up to Windows 8.1. For existing Windows 8.1 users, you also get new features.
A couple of weeks ago, Nokia launched the successor to the venerable Lumia 620. When I reviewed it, I admitted to like it, but since that review didn’t come in a timely manner, I couldn’t recommend it since it’s overshadowed both by the bang-for-the-buck Lumia 520 and the not-quite-the-successor Lumia 625.
With the launch of the anticipated Windows Phone 8.1,Nokia have just launched the first device to use it. Curiously, it’s not a high end phone but the budget-friendly Lumia 6xx family, specifically the Nokia Lumia 630. Spec-wise, it’s an incremental update to the Lumia 620:
Nokia just announced the all new Nokia 3310 with a monstrous 41-megapixel PureView camera paired with Zeiss Optics and Xenon Flash. The 3310 is probably one of the most popular Nokia device back in the day, so it’s good to see it making a huge comeback in the mobile industry.
Well, it’s official. Phablets aren’t Android-only territory any longer! And it’s a testament to this new classification’s market viability. While still technically a niche market, its popularity has been steadily growing, so much so that other platforms have taken notice. While Apple is rumored to still be contemplating on the concept, Microsoft went ahead and made what is arguably one of the best phablets in the market today.
Not too long ago, I said that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is one of those few WP8 devices that make sense in purchasing if you can swallow the price. I personally use a Nokia Lumia 620, and while I do like the device, I really could no longer ignore my dislike for small screens (aside from my other caveats).
Akin to the VLC media player for the PC, the Moliplayer Pro for the Windows Phone platform is compatible with several video formats. It can play 1080p videos in your smartphone too!
While the Nokia Lumia 525 is technically just an entry level phone, its predecessor, the Lumia 520, set some very high standards for it.
Nokia hasn’t been shy about touting the imaging prowess of their Lumia 1020 and its 41mp sensor, but how does it stack up against a mainstream DSLR?
Not too long ago, we introduced you to the Final Word in smartphone cameras, the Nokia Lumia 1020. We were able to have a limited hands-on of the phone at the said event, but last week, Nokia was generous enough to loan us a unit for review.
Or, to be more precise, shoot first and refocus later. A couple of days ago, Nokia have released the app that will most probably change everything. As the name and my earlier introduction implies, the Nokia Refocus app allows you to change the focused subject in your photo after you’ve taken the picture.
