Remember that Nokia PureView tease from a few days ago? Well, suddenly it all makes sense. We are indeed looking at an imaging flagship phone and a true successor to the N8. It's called the 808 PureView and it's expected to reach Europe in the next quarter for a price of 450 Euros.
It appears that Nokia isn't coming to Microsoft's developer conference empty-handed. A proposed merger between the two companies is still pending, but Nokia decided to bring in some new hardware regardless. This time, the phone maker has announced the Lumia 930, which is essentially the international version of theLumia Icon.
When Nokia came out with theLumia 1520, we were treated to a new side of Windows Phone. All of a sudden, Microsoft's smartphone OS had come of age; it was using thebest available hardware specsand a wave of big-name apps had finally arrived in the Windows Phone Store. Even so, we were concerned that the 1520's 6-inch screen size and AT&T exclusivity in the US would limit its appeal.
You don't need to cast bones or read entrails to know that smartphones arrive in predictablecycles. February, home of Mobile World Congress, is likely to see the launch of new handsets from heavy hitters likeHTC,SamsungandLG. Those new flagships will rule the mobile hill until the fall, when Apple and Google are likely to wheel out next-gen devices of their own.
I enjoyed reviewing the Nokia Lumia 2520 Windows 8.1 RT tablet a few weeks ago and since it’s been over a year, I thought it was time that I reviewed another Windows Phone device as well. Verizon offered to send me the Nokia Lumia Icon (aka Lumia 929), which is available exclusively from them. I swapped SIM cards with my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and have been using the Icon for the past week.
Someone with access to Nokia devices behind-the-scenes appears to have made a move in leaking their latest Lumia model this week. The device appears relatively massive, ready to bring at least a 4.5-inch display to the party, possibly in an effort to tac on a new generation in the Nokia Lumia 820 lineup. That’d make this a Nokia Lumia 830.
Samsung , as expected, have just revealed their lineup of three new Galaxy Tab 4 products which include a 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10.1-inch size screen, all with new designs and new internals from the previous generation.
The "all new"HTC Onehas been one of theworst kept secretsof 2014, but today it's a secret no more. The Taiwanese manufacturer has taken the wraps off its latest flagship and fans of last years model (count us among them) won't be disappointed. The phone boasts the same aluminum unibody construction as last year's model, but with more pronounced curves and even more metal this time around.
There has been plenty of talk in regards to the Nokia X and the Play Store since the handset was announced during Mobile World Congress. Or maybe more accurately, the talk was in regards to the lack of the Play Store . While that may be an issue for some, it seems that may not be as big of a deal for others.
With so many details about the new HTC One already known, all that's really left for HTC to do is start selling the new smartphone, but even there the company has been beaten to it. A 2014 HTC One (aka "HTC M8") has already sold in Verizon form on eBay, confirming the much-rumored specifications along the way.
For the last 24 hours (and likely the next 12), excitable company execs have been barraging our inbox,YouTube and your social media networks with their best shenanigans. Love it or loathe it (and you're probably starting to loathe it by now), the April Fools tradition continues, even stronger, in 2014. Google went a little overboard, but hopefully, after today, selfies will die a death. Hopefully.
LG is rolling out their Chromebase today, an all-in-one desktop running Chrome OS. Saying it has “everything a home computer needs to suit a modern lifestyle”, LG is packing all we’ve come to like about Chrome device in a stylish desktop solution. Though it made an appearance at CES this year, the Chromebase is now available for consumers. The 21.
Verizon has refilled its Windows Phone flagship spot, with the Nokia Lumia Icon distilling what we liked from the Lumia 1520 into a 5-inch form-factor with a crisp metal chassis and 20-megapixel PureView. Fronted by a 5-inch, 1080p Full HD OLED ClearBlack display, and running Windows Phone 8 on Qualcomm's 2.
There’s a fellow by the name of Markku at Nokia’s Sensors and Energy department - the Principal Researcher of that department. He’s working on a project that’s going to allow users to dance to charge up their smartphone. While it’s relatively far off from a final product, the team has taken to the streets to show the concept off. You’ll find that Markku is pumped up about this project, having given it the code-name Sea Turtle and preparing it for real implementation int eh distant future.
In this morning's Apple news, Nokia's photography lead has moved over to Apple and a little bit of music news. Stop me if you've heard this one.
The Internet exploded today with news of Apple's potential acquisition of Beats Music . Note that this is not a formally-announced deal as of this writing. The Financial Times broke the story, claiming that Apple is set to pay US$3.

If our articles have been tagged properly, the first mention ofOppoon Engadget dates back toAugust 2005. No one would have thought that this then-fledgling DVD player manufacturer -- a spin-off fromVivo'sparent company BBK -- would end up making some interesting smartphones.
