Nokia's strategy to buddy up with Microsoft and essentially go all-in with the Windows Phone platform is paying off. The Finnish handset maker turned a modest profit in the fourth quarter of 2012, coming out ahead on the balance sheet by 202 million euros ($269 million). That's not much, but it's just the sort of... Read more...
Perhaps a sign that 3D printing technology is edging ever further into the mainstream is that a company like Nokia is using it in a PR stunt. In this case, pun intended, Nokia is releasing 3D templates, case specifications, and handy best practices so that people can print their own Nokia Lumia 820 cases. The phone’s shell can actually...

In the Web browser world, WebKit is a force to be reckoned with.

While KHTML's initial focus was to support the popular Linux Web browser Konquerer, the... Read more...
Nokia can ill-afford any missteps as it attempts to rebuild its brand into a major smartphone player, so it's a little concerning on a number of levels that it was caught intercepting Internet traffic on its phones and redirecting the data through its own server farm. Is Nokia engaging in so-called man-in-the-middle... Read more...
Nokia is reportedly prepping a successor to its flagship Lumia 920 device. Codenamed "Catwalk," the new smartphone will feature a chassis constructed from aluminum rather than the polycarbonate body found on previous Lumia devices.

These new Windows Phone smartphones come with all of the Windows Phone 8 features you'd... Read more...
Nokia, arguably the biggest champion of Microsoft's Windows Phone strategy, is apparently fond of Windows RT as well. Or perhaps Nokia believes it can build a better Surface than Microsoft. Either way, Nokia has reportedly resumed development of its own Windows RT tablet, which it will likely unveil at the 2013 Mobile World Congress (MWC).... Read more...
For the past 14 years, Nokia has been the top cell phone brand. This year, there's a new leader: Samsung. According to analytics provider IHS, Samsung is expected to ship 29 percent of the world's cell phones in 2012. Last year, Samsung had 24 percent of the market and held the No. 2 spot. In 2011, Nokia held the No. 1 spot with 30 percent... Read more...
For a good while now, high-end Nokia smartphones have been planted in the Lumia line using Windows Phone, while lower-end Nokia phones were planted in the Asha line running an OS that hardly anyone in America could even pretend to care about. But now, it looks like Nokia's spreading its wings a bit. The company's... Read more...
Dell has been rather quiet on the mobile front lately, and there’s good reason: the company is officially getting out of the smartphone game, rendering your Streak, Aero, and Venue handsets instant relics of mobile computing history. Dell’s Jeff Clarke (pictured) told Forbes, “It needs a lot of investments to really be successful,”... Read more...
Nokia on Tuesday added to its Windows Phone lineup by launching the Lumia 620, the third and most affordable device in its range of Windows Phone 8 smartphones. It slides underneath the top-end Lumia 920 (see our review) and mid-range Lumia 820, but unlike those other two, Nokia's entry-level WP8 device aims to offer... Read more...
You might find this hard to believe (we certainly do), but obnoxious ringtones aren't the only ones that exist. If a study by Nokia is to be believed, classical music ringtones are actually the second most popular, followed by who-knows-what. It doesn't matter what came in third or fourth or fifth -- the point is, lots of mobile users enjoy... Read more...
Don't kick yourself if you missed out on the Black Friday madness or slept through Cyber Monday without snagging a single deal to brag about.

With so much at stake in the mobile sector, companies seem to be suing each other left right over various technology patents. The newest lawsuit comes from Nokia, which is seeking a BlackBerry sales ban in the U.S. and U.K. over Wi-Fi related patents. The Finnish handset maker wants Research In Motion (RIM) to pay royalties on sales of any... Read more...

Damian Dinning, the lead program manager for Imaging Experience at Nokia, has left the company. Reportedly, Nokia took the loss pretty hard, and it’s not hard to see why: under Dinning’s watch, Nokia developed the impressive PureView smartphone camera, and he reportedly helped create a relationship with...

In recent years, Nokia's biggest announcement has revolved around its decision to partner with Microsoft and make Windows Phone the company's exclusive smartphone OS.

Microsoft already has a BFF in the smartphone space in Nokia (plus other partners willing to dance to the tune of Microsoft's Windows Phone platform), but don't rule out the possibility of the Redmond outfit launching its own branded smartphone. It's a strategy that's been working for both Apple and Google, and Microsoft could be next. According... Read more...
With so much riding on the success of Windows 8 -- both for Microsoft and the PC industry as a whole, the latter of which is in a slump of sorts -- it'd be interesting to know how many copies of the touch friendly operating system (OS) the Redmond company was able to move since launching to the general public four...

For whatever reason, Nokia seems to have gotten into the habit of announcing new products without revealing launch dates, leaving it up to the Internet to dig up rumors and speculate. That's been especially true of Nokia's Windows Phone 8 devices, so it's nice to see the Finnish phone maker finally breaking its silence. Here's what we now... Read more...
