In the first screenshot, the Notification Center, or “Action Center” as Microsoft is labelling it, is shown when you take a short swipe from the top of the screen.This will display various toggles or shortcuts. Toast notifications are shown off in the second image.
Are you excited for this major upgrade to arrive on your phone, do you think Microsoft has delayed it enough?!
Nokia is really taking advantage of customers waiting for newer iteration of these devices and pulling customers to the Windows Phone ecosystem with this marketing trick. If you trade in your iPhone 4, iPhone 4s or Galaxy S2, you can get a free Nokia Lumia 1020or Nokia Lumia 1520 device from Microsoft.
Things to note though : Both the phones are offered on AT&T’s network and need a two year contract or upgrade.
This is basically what an unnamed Senior Nokia India Executive unveiled, under the condition that his identity should be not unveiled further disclosing that this phone would be available in India from March. For obvious reasons, this phone seems to be built for emerging markets like India.
Are you excited for this Asha running forked-Android!?
There is absolutely not a single day that passes by without a rumor of Nokia’s code named Normandy. The latest leak by TheGioididong.com suggest some interesting specs of the phone, says it would running Android KitKat.
There appeared to be small window while they uploaded the above which taken down shortly after.The phone is expected to feature a 4-inch display with WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) resolution, powered by a lowly 1GHz dual-core CPU (probably a Snapdragon 200 chip). 512MB of RAM and 4GB internal storage, which can be further expanded via a microSD card fill out the flash memory column of the spec sheet.
Back in early 2013 there were rumours of Microsoft encouraging OEMs to push Windows Phone by enabling it to exist alongside another operating system so users can jump back and forth. While back then it was a far fetched dream, there is one very strong contender attempting just that.
The BM 180 is based on WP8, and looks and feels a lot like it, but with an industry focus, rather than being intended for personal use. That means it isn’t ready to be your daily driver as we speak. Also we are sceptical about how quick the switching would be so let’s just hang around till someone figures it out in a better way.
There is almost no day that passes by without a new leak of this Nokia Normandy smartphone which is making headlines for one sole reason because it is expected to be – Nokia’s first Android smartphone.
Very strong rumours say that the UI above is a forked version of Android like the one on the Amazon Kindle Fire line of tablets but that doesn’t convince us enough. Everything else looks the Asha OS just got a facelift. There are a lot of apps out there from Skype to Vine and even BBM and Viber that makes us think again, what really is the Normandy!?
It is expected to launch on February 25th so keep your fingers crossed Android fanboys.
At this point Microsoft has a lot of questions yet unanswered that would decide the Windows Phone fate. We do know that Nokia – Microsoft now being one could mean that there is one big question- Will Microsoft encourage other OEMs to use their OS tp compete against their own manufacturing?
A Source says that Microsoft is in talk with Sony to push WP on their hardware . While at this point it might mean starting from scratch, Microsoft wants this to happen and would like to take the pain to get this sorted as soon as possible.
evleaks on a spree of leaking new Windows Phone tips and now we have a rumour with a photo to back it up. The Lumia 630/635 codenamed “Moneypenny” would bring Dual-SIM support to Windows Phone alongwith alleged On-Screen buttons.
Based on the network indicators, we think both SIMs could be active simultaneously. Nokia has its eyes set on developing markets, and giving those users this sort of flexibility may be key to winning many over.
It’s holiday season again and that time of the year when there are a lot of gifts being wrapped. Let’s take a look back and see what this year meant for the smartphone industry and which one’s made it big. Here is a list of Top 5 Smartphones for 2013!
1. Apple iPhone 5s
While Apple would not have won a medal in redesigning this much similar-looking iPhone, it surely won all the attention, primarily because of it’s neatly tucked fingerprint scanner – a first on any commercially available mobile phone.
The 64-bit A7 processor is logically a major upgrade over the predecessor, but the bigger change is the M7 co-processor, which picks up data from various sensors even while the phone may be asleep. The iPhone 5s is everything you love, only much better.
2. Samsung Galaxy Note 3
The Galaxy Note 3 is the pinnacle of Samsung’s line of large phones. It’s Samsung’s best effort by far. The Note line of devices brought phablets (i.e., large-screened phones) to the masses, and none is more accessible than the Note 3.
Samsung managed to reduce the device’s footprint while increasing the size of the screen to a whopping 5.7 inches. The Note 3 is also thinner, lighter, and classier than ever, thanks to the faux leather back and tasteful chrome accents.
3. Google Nexus 5
Google bought a treat and well needed upgrade to it’s Nexus 4 and man does this phone offer the best bang for the buck! Historically the Nexus devices bring flagship level hardware at rock bottom prices but with the Nexus 5 you get even better.
he Nexus 5 packs in a bigger screen this time around – 5-inch Full HD IPS+, with Gorilla Glass 3.And yes, how can we forget Google’s promise of instant OS updates being rolled out for Nexus smartphones and tablets?
4. LG G2
The LG G2 is by far one of the best effort devices in terms of hardware and innovation throughout. The 5.2-inch display is by far one of the best that’s currently available on any available smartphone at 424 ppi.
The power key sits just below the camera at the back, with the designers assuming that a finger will naturally reach that spot when you hold the phone conventionally.
5. Nokia Lumia 1020
If you are extremely concerned about picture quality on your phone and need a camera replacement then here is a great option. Although you need to be a quick adapter to a new and quite-friendly operating system, the Lumia 1020 snaps photos like a boss!
With a 41 MP sensor with OIS, It offers full manual control over every aspect of creating a photograph such as shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation, white balance and even offers the ability to manually focus the lens.
Do you have another best that we have missed? Comment below.
These wearable components would still be produced under Nokia’s name even after the Mircosoft takeover but since we do not have any official news, it’s wise to not get excited.
