Nokia Has Announced a New Windows Phone Lumia Icon


Nokia has announced a new Windows Phone in its Lumia lineup, the Lumia Icon. The phone is based on the Lumia 1520 and has virtually the same spec sheet.

Lumia Icon comes with a 5.1″Super Sensitive ClearBlack AMOLED display with Full HD resolution. Lumia Icon isn’t the most compact of phones, being 9.8mm thick and 167g heavy.

Under the hood, Lumia Icon features with a 2.2Ghz quad-core processor with 2 GB worth memory and 32 GB non-expandable storage.

At the back lies the entire package’s main attraction: the coveted 20.1 megapixel PureView camera. It comes with a 1/2.5″ BSI, f/2.4 aperture, OIS and dual-LED Flash. It also does 1080p videos at 30 fps.

The phone also comes with all the cool software apps which comes pre-installed on the 1520, and take the same duo of 5 megapixel and full resolution photos on pressing the shutter, the former meant for easier sharing.

Connectivity options of Lumia Icon include WiFi 802.11ac, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 4G LTE, FM Radio and microUSB 2.0. Lumia Icon also comes with a 2,420 mAh battery which might not sound much but wireless charging is supported.

Availability and pricing details for international release are not disclosed yet.


Nokia Has Plans to launch First Android Phone Soon


Nokia has plans to launch a long-rumoured Android phone later this month at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, reported Wall Street Journal.

Phone is widely reported to be aimed at low-end segment of the developing markets.

Report said that Nokia X – code named Normady – will come with a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 4-inch WVGA screen, 512MB of memory, 4GB of storage, and a microSD card slot.

It will reportedly sport a 5MP camera, a 1,500mAh battery, along with dual-SIM option.

Speculations say that Nokia won’t allow the “Play Store” access to this phone, instead Microsoft and Nokia developed services – such as Here maps and Mix Radio — will be offered along with Nokia’s own store with popular Android Apps, such as Skype, Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp etc..

Nokia X will Finally change Nokia’s decision for not going Android. Company remained committed to Windows Phone operating system for its high-end smartphones.

However, we have seen Nokia testing various other home-grown operating systems for its low-end phones for developing markets. Android on a low-end phone from Nokia seems in-line with this long-running policy.

Nokia’s hardware run by Android phone would be an interesting proposition. This may not only revive the brand, which was sold to Microsoft last year, but may also help result into faster adoption of smartphones in developing markets, especially if phone is priced well.


Nokia and Telenor Introduce the Nokia Asha 500, 502 and 503

Nokia Releases the Lumia Black Update Worldwide


Nokia has released its “Black” update for Lumia smartphones worldwide. The update brings several enhancements and nifty, little features for people using the Finn’s Windows Phones.

The first among them is the App Folder, which allows you to group several common apps of the same kind under one large Live Tile on the Start Screen. Bluetooth Low Energy is enabled for the complete Lumia range. Glance 2.0 makes an appearance, giving you an overview of even more activity straight from the lockscreen, and in more colors.

Two of Nokia’s imaging apps – Nokia Pro Camera and Smart Camera – have been placed under one banner to form the new Nokia Camera app. Access to raw image files is coming exclusively to the Lumia 1020.

Nokia Refocus is an app which allows you to snap a photograph and then refocus it later on. Storyteller is another app coming, which arranges all your photos on basis of time and location.

Finally, Nokia is adding more imaging algorithms to make your snapping feel more fruitful. For instance, a new oversampling algorithm reduces noise and makes photos sharper and more natural.

Nokia 108 An Another Low-End, Dual SIM Phone by Nokia


Nokia may have been brought by Microsoft but that hasn’t stopped it from announcing new featurephones. The latest phone in the chain is the Nokia 108 which will also come with a dual-sim version of the phone.

Specs-wise the phone is not much different from most other devices of its class. Upfront is the 1.8 inch LCD display with 160 x 128 resolution. Beneath it are the 5-point navigation keys and the 12 button keypad. An addition is the VGA camera on the back which the Nokia says is enough for first-time camera phone buyers.

Storage is expandable via a microSD card slot. A 950 mAh battery with over a month worth standby time and about 14 hours talk-time. And as is the case with phones like these, the 108 is quite compact too, weighing in at just 70 grams.

An optional dual-sim version of the phone will be there at launch. As for the software, the phone (most-probably) comes with Symbian S40, and has music player and FM Radio applications.

The 108 and the dual-sim version will cost around $29 at launch which is just about as cheap as you can expect from Nokia. They’ll arrive in Q4 of this year. While they won’t be replacing your smartphone, it’s sometimes really helpful to have a secondary phone with extra-long standby time. Or to play Snake.


Microsoft Buys Nokia Devices & Service Unit for $7.2 Billion


Microsoft and Nokia have just announced that both companies have decided to enter into a transaction whereby Microsoft will purchase substantially all of Nokia’s Devices & Services business, license Nokia’s patents, and license and use Nokia’s mapping services.

Under the terms of the agreement, Microsoft will pay $ 5 billion to purchase substantially all of Nokia’s Devices & Services business, and $ 2.2 billion to license Nokia’s patents, for a total transaction price of $ 7.2 billion in cash.

Microsoft will draw upon its overseas cash resources to fund the transaction. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2014, subject to approval by Nokia’s shareholders, regulatory approvals and other closing conditions.

“It’s a bold step into the future – a win-win for employees, shareholders and consumers of both companies. Bringing these great teams together will accelerate Microsoft’s share and profits in phones, and strengthen the overall opportunities for both Microsoft and our partners across our entire family of devices and services,” said Steve Ballmer, Microsoft chief executive officer. “In addition to their innovation and strength in phones at all price points, Nokia brings proven capability and talent in critical areas such as hardware design and engineering, supply chain and manufacturing management, and hardware sales, marketing and distribution.”

“We are excited and honored to be bringing Nokia’s incredible people, technologies and assets into our Microsoft family. Given our long partnership with Nokia and the many key Nokia leaders that are joining Microsoft, we anticipate a smooth transition and great execution,” Ballmer said. “With ongoing share growth and the synergies across marketing, branding and advertising, we expect this acquisition to be accretive to our adjusted earnings per share starting in FY15, and we see significant long-term revenue and profit opportunities for our shareholders.”

“For Nokia, this is an important moment of reinvention and from a position of financial strength, we can build our next chapter,” said Risto Siilasmaa, Chairman of the Nokia Board of Directors and, following today’s announcement, Nokia Interim CEO. “After a thorough assessment of how to maximize shareholder value, including consideration of a variety of alternatives, we believe this transaction is the best path forward for Nokia and its shareholders. Additionally, the deal offers future opportunities for many Nokia employees as part of a company with the strategy, financial resources and determination to succeed in the mobile space.”

“Building on our successful partnership, we can now bring together the best of Microsoft’s software engineering with the best of Nokia’s product engineering, award-winning design, and global sales, marketing and manufacturing,” said Stephen Elop, who following today’s announcement is stepping aside as Nokia President and CEO to become Nokia Executive Vice President of Devices & Services. “With this combination of talented people, we have the opportunity to accelerate the current momentum and cutting-edge innovation of both our smart devices and mobile phone products.”

Nokia has outlined its expected focus upon the closing of the transaction in a separate press release published today.


Nokia 515 A New Best-Looking Featurephone by Nokia


Most of the mobile phone manufacturers nowadays neglect the design front of their cheaper models which is, of course, expected. Nokia has been guilty of doing that too but not with the new Nokia 515.

Nokia 515 is possibly the best-looking featurephone and doesn’t arrive exactly cheap either.

The design of the Nokia 515 is quite sleek and seems to have taken cues from both the Lumias and the HTC One. It is made of a single piece of sandblasted and anodised aluminium. Like the other cheap Nokia phones, it is also a bit boxy. The display is slightly curved and astonishingly, features Gorilla Glass 2. It isn’t even a touchscreen.

On the front, you have a 2.4 inch QVGA display and a numeric keyboard. Around the back though, you have a 5 megapixel camera with LED Flash.

The sides incorporates volume keys.

There will be a dual-sim version of the 515 too. The battery life is quoted at 38 days worth standby.

And then lastly, the price. The phone will be available in Q3 of 2013 for a tough-to-swallow price-tag of $150. For that, you can even get a dual-core smartphone nowadays which means that Nokia might face a tough time selling this phone. Still, given the number of people who aren’t in the smartphone circle yet, the 515 may not be failure after all.

Here are the specs again:

  • System: 3.5G HSDPA – GSM 850/900/1800/1900 WCDMA 900/2100
  • Size and weight: 114 x 48 x 11 mm; 101.1g
  • Display: 2.4” QVGA LCD 262k display
  • Memory: Up to 256MB flash, support for up to 32GB microSD card
  • Connectivity: microUSB port supporting data transfer and charging, Bluetooth 3.0, 3.5 mm AV connector, Micro SIM
  • Camera: 5 megapixels, LED flash
  • Battery life: up to 38 days standby; up to 10.4 hrs talk time
