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.
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.
On one hand, it was nice of Nokia to finally release a couple of handsets powered by Android. On the other, they all weren’t from the sleek Lumia line. But things are about to change, as there’s reportedly an incoming Lumia handset that will run on Google’s operating system.

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.

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.
It’s no coincidence that the Nokia X phone was code named “Normandy”, and at the press launch of the phone yesterday, they made sure it made sense.
