  • Simple Solution – Nokia Bike Charger

    Sometimes it’s the simple things. Why not a dual purpose phone charger, phone mount for your bicycle? Stay above 7.5 mph and you’ll charge your phone at the same rate as if you plugged it into the wall and you’ll be able to enjoy free turn-by-turn navigation. Launching first in Kenya where it’s really needed […]

  • N900 PR 1.2 – Like Christmas Day

    I’ve been playing around with the most recent upgrade to the Nokia N900 and it really is like Christmas. There are so many little tweaks to the core OS that it really is like having a new phone again. Geek Christmas. After reading about Jason’s experience, Skype video calling  was the first thing I tried. Skype […]

  • Loosely Connected

    Mike Manos has joined Nokia as VP of Service Operations and has been tasked to build the cloud infrastructure for our Ovi services.

  • Nokia Phones, Survival of the Fittest

    Nokia prides itself on making a durable phone that can withstand daily wear and tear. The short video below gives you a look inside the test center where they drop, bend, and tumble the phones to see if they can stand up to whatever our customers can throw at it. But some tests can’t be […]

  • Software for the Nokia E71

    Old post recommending software for an old Nokia phone that was once best in its class.

  • Nokia’s Netbook, the N97

    I was going to write a post about all the amazing phones I saw last week while I was in Japan but this morning’s announcement of the latest Nokia device trumps that. Techmeme is smothered with coverage. I’ve been watching the convergence of the smartphone and laptop computer into a single device called a netbook. […]
