Nokia’s Fight

nokia_n8_left_lean_silver_604x604

Chances are you have had at least one Nokia phone in your life if you were born sometime before 1990. Fast forward to today, it's probably a Samsung, Motorola, HTC, RIM or Apple (smartphone).

That's the operating system the N770/n800/n810 have been using; it's the 'other' operating system for Nokia besides Symbian. On the OS topic, there's been [...]

It's made of real leather and has a classic, simplistic but elegant design while maintaining practicality. I'm not usually one to go for mobile phone cases. I've found that the range [...]

The Android G1 was a cool phone, but you and I both knew that I wouldn't stick with it very long. What can I say, I get bored easily. So, this week I'm going to be trying out the Nokia N85 smartphone. It's been awhile since I've had a newer Symbian phone, so I'm excited [...]
