    About a week ago, I decided to do a little experiment: to see if I could still use (and enjoy using) a Nokia N9 as my only smartphone for a few days away from home. I charged it up and dived into some settings to make a few updates and changes to various […]

Nokia: Design Beyond Belief

| April 25, 2014 | 5 Comments

Nokia: Design Beyond Belief That’s the tagline I would’ve gone with after they stopped using “Connecting People” under the famous “NOKIA” logo. Nokia has produced some of the best designs in the world of smartphones, (along with the weirdest!) and each Nokia device I have bought has always been one I’ve been proud to lay […]

Point-and-Shoot vs. Nokias

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 […]

2003 and 2013: quite a difference!

2003 and 2013: quite a difference!

| October 5, 2013 | 3 Comments

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!

| September 29, 2013 | 3 Comments

    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 […]
