  • Nokia debuts BH-121, the tiny tile music player with Bluetooth and NFC

    Staying with its colour scheme of everything cyan, red, yellow and black, Nokia just debuted the new BH-121 Bluetooth Stereo Headset. Nokia is all about the colour and the tiles. This little device is only 39x39x12mm big which is about the same (yet slimmer) than your average box of matches. Using a clip you can secure it to your clothes or somewhere in your car perhaps. Given its small size, you'll be surprised to find a play button, volume controls as well as track control buttons arranged along the edges. Furthermore, the little tile has a battery LED indicator...

  • Nokia Lumia 525 official, rocks candy-coated covers and 1GB RAM

    Nokia's Lumia 525 is the nippy sibling to the Lumia 520, a budget phone with loads of nifty software and hardware features that made it genuinely stand out from the rest. The Lumia 525 adds a few more hardware updates to the 520's basic framework, such as more RAM. The Lumia 525 looks the business, thanks to its premium and ultra-glossy style. Is it thanks to the swap-in, swap-out covers, available in orange, yellow or white that makes it such a desirable candy bar phone? Nope, it's the specs which are more than fair for a phone of this price....

  • Nokia launches three new Ashas, Lumia 1520 and 1320, plus 2520 tablet

    This morning it's all about Nokia. Later on, Apple's going to try and capture some of that gadget magic we crave. Nokia's going to show us a new super-sized phone, Apple's going to punt refurbished tablets. But you came here for Nokia news, and the Finnish company has delivered. From Nokia World, live in Abu Dhabi earlier today, Nokia launched "the next generation of Nokia innovation", namely three new Ashas (the 500, 502 and 503). It's also catered to the phablet market with the 6" Lumia 1520 and the "for the youth" 1320 (also 6"). Finally, it announced its...

  • Nokia 6″ Lumia 1520 ‘Bandit’ may have 20MP PureView camera, cost $820

    Nokia's been teasing an event, "Nokia World" which will unveil its newest device, believed to be the so-called "Bandit" or Lumia 1520. Tomorrow we'll hopefully see the new Windows Phone 8 smartphone officially in action. Although rumours and leaks have been pinballing throughout the web, a recent leak suggests it's most likely to have a US$800 price tag which is more expensive than most smartphones out there. Apart from the 1520's massive 6"screen, it also carries a 1080p display. On top of that it's said to have a 20MP PureView camera and is powered by the latest Qualcomm processor (Snapdragon...

  • Nokia’s Lumia 2520 tablet outed on Twitter

    Is what's pictured above, care of Twitter tipster evleaks the real deal? Possibly. The oft reliable Twitter user evleaks managed to grab a shot of Nokia's tablet, the Lumia 2520. It's a great, clear shot of this cyan tablet and looks like it's taken straight from a press release. The great eye of Microsoft and Nokia stares down on us, looks in our direction with a lidless glance and casts some unconfirmed specs of "Sirius" our way: It's going to run Windows RT, which in our opinion is a terrible mistake A  quad-core Qualcomm 8974 (ARM) CPU will power it. This is a...

  • Six new Nokia devices revealed 22 October

    At Nokia's Innovation Event, hosted in Abu Dhabi next month, the now Microsoft-owned company will release six new devices, with two of them being Lumia's, said The Verge. "Sources familiar with Nokia's roadmap" have said that there will also be a brand new range of accessories and one of them's going to be "special". Perhaps a case with rabbit ears? Here's what the world (and us) think it's going to be: the highly anticipated and super-sized Lumia 1520, a 6" Windows Phone behemoth. The same article practically confirms this, which isn't a solid fact of course, and points out that Nokia wants to...

  • Nokia 108 has a VGA camera, dual SIM and a $29 price tag

    Nokia's 108 is a very low-specced "dumb-phone" and Nokia knows it. It's launching the 108 Q4 2013 for "when you just want to disconnect from the online world for a while." When was that ever an option? Behold the specs of this little device: It weighs 70g, has a 1.8" display, supports a 32GB microSD, dual SIM, has Bluetooth 3.0, a VGA rear camera and 31 days of standby. Holy hell. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=hojHCEnaMLw Ha, no. Nokia said on its official blog that the 108 is the successor to the 105, another US$29 candy-bar phone. Nokia wants the 108 to be a backup phone, a...

  • The Nokia Lumia 1520 is a 6″ beast and here’s a picture of it

    Nokia's dead right? A forgotten company eaten by the giant Microsoft machine. No, as Microsoft quietly digests Nokia, phones like this, the massive Nokia 1520, leak out of the digital orifices. EVleaks pulled this sneaky shot from the nether and posted it to twitter. Nokia Lumia 1520, 2013 pic.twitter.com/asZhT2YVsH— @evleaks (@evleaks) September 6, 2013 Here's a closeup: Now let's tell you about this phone with a 6-inch display and we reported on it ages ago. The Lumia 1520 was originally called "the bandit" but that's a damn stupid name, 1520 is much better. It sounds enormous. And it is. The 6" display...

  • From smartphone to smart car: Nokia launches HERE Auto

    Nokia's latest ambition? That would be to be the companion on your dashboard. The Finnish mobile giant announced today that its HERE navigation system is moving beyond your smart device and into your car with an embedded system called HERE Auto.

  • Nokia’s Lumia 1520 ‘Bandit’ 6-inch giant reportedly leaked

    If you've read our review of the Nokia Lumia 920 you'll know it's incredibly chunky. You should also know by now that Nokia isn't scared of announcing fat screen smartphones like the 4.7-inch Lumia 625. Today, the Nokia 1520 which is also known as Nokia's Bandit phablet, has allegedly been photographed -- and it's all kinds of big. Nokia Bandit = Lumia 1520— @evleaks (@evleaks) August 27, 2013 Not only does it have a ridiculously scraping-by-tablet-territory sized display, it's also expected to have impressive high-end specs which is something the Lumia 625 lacks. According to Windows Phone Central, it will host...
