It’s been said in the reviews all over the place: the Nokia Lumia 1020 has an absolutely superb built-in camera, as good or better than most “point-and-shoots”. Some would even put it on par with some low-end DSLRs if you can be bothered to reach page 8 or 9 in a Google search.  I blindly […]

It wasn’t that long ago that I was lugging a Nokia 808 PureView around in my pocket, whilst also considering switching my SIM card over to my Nokia N9 when I got back home. It wasn’t that long ago I was turning my nose up at Nokia Lumia ads on TV either, and shaking my […]

The App Folder App!

Yes, the new app that appeared yesterday, the App Folder app. Hmm. At first I was all like, ‘Yes! Folders! At last!’ But after about 15 minutes I was all like, ‘Meh. And also… meh.’ You see the thing about folders is, if they’re to be implemented into the user experience, they have to perform […]

Ten years ago, in 2003, things in the mobile world were very, very different to the landscape that we live in today. Back then, the phone I was rocking was the Nokia 3100, a very lightweight, basic cellular device but one that expressed my personality just a little bit by the fact that it was […]

Happy 2nd Birthday, N9!

    I’m two days late with this post. Two days ago, September 27th marked the two year anniversary of when Nokia began shipping the mysterious but equally compelling MeeGo-powered N9, a device that everyone knew was being born into a cold, cruel world; its parents had, months prior to its release, already abandoned it […]

How did you start your day, on September 3rd? Mine began as normally as any other, for the first ten minutes. I got out of bed, used the loo, fed the cats, switched on the TV and tuned into BBC World News. I have to do that here in the States as the word “news” […]

I used to write for EverythingN9.com before Lenny at Nokia Innovation tapped me on the shoulder and asked me to write for this site. I was a huge Nokia N9 fan, and in many ways I still am, but time changes things, and it moves us on. Whether or not we want to stick with […]
