image thumb16 Windows Next Version, Windows 8 Build Now Available For Download!

Microsoft has been ringing loud since yesterday about the Windows 8 and the great many promises it brings to the PC users. I for one have been bought all over again by Microsoft for the great new features it brings, so many that it will be almost impossible for me to write about in one post. Honestly I don’t feel like reporting about this for I am busy counting the time remaining till the download for the Windows Developer Release completes.

Windows Phone 99 Windows Phone Set For A Major Announcement Tomorrow, Maybe The First Nokia Windows Phone?

A close friend of mine recently complained about why exactly I avoid writing about Windows Phone and Nokia. To be honest, I haven’t been impressed by earlier Nokia Devices, owing primarily to the fact that the Operating System for the Nokia devices has been very lousy to say the least. I am now anxiously waiting for the much anticipated Nokia’s Windows Phone, which by all means has to be a game changer in the smartphone industry.

image thumb10 Nokia Says Yes To Windows Phone 7: Because iOS Won’t Sell And Android Is On The Hated List!

This is big, really big and hopefully will lessen my hate for both Nokia’s smartphones and the Microsoft Windows Phone 7 alike. Today Nokia officially announced its partnership with Microsoft to port the Windows Phone 7 as its primary mobile platform.

image thumb80 Opinion: Why Nokia Partnership With Microsoft Prove Beneficial For Nokia

There has been quite a stir about Nokia being in talks with the likes of Google in connection to the Android platform. Nokia has of course turned down any possibility of this Android Nokia marriage ever happening. But to the contrary, I believe such a move would only prove beneficial for Nokia in the long run. Of course Android is not the only option. This brings us to the recent news on Nokia in talks with Microsoft, not surprising at all as the two have been in talks now for a couple of months.

We can of course turn this down as a plain rumor for Nokia is adamant at building up on its own OS. There are plans for 2011 and we can expect revamped software and the hardware alike. But just in case Nokia has any plans of extending partnership with Microsoft, it will be quite an interesting move. We have our reasons for this, primarily the fact that Windows Phone 7 recently crossed a 1.5 million unit sale, which shows that the OS in itself is not a risky option to power Nokia devices with.

When Computerworld’s report read that Nokia is planning a really busy 2011, I was a bit lost. Isn’t that what they have been doing or at least trying to do since 2008? We have seen that the devices so far released haven’t really left a desired impact on the mobile market with the sudden burst of so called high end, revolutionary smartphones in the form of Nokia N97, Nokia N900 and the very recent Nokia N8 that qualifies as a pretty decent attempt.

image thumb64 Its Really Cool To Pee In Your Pants! Nokia Android War Goes A Video Ahead

A day or two back Nokia’s outgoing head, Anssi Vanjoki had great thoughts to share on the Android Platform. Honestly I was disappointed, more than I was when Steve Jobs acted like a whiner and blamed ever phone in the universe having the Antennagate issue. The respectable head, while talking to Financial Times was of the opinion that people using Android are like Finnish boys who pee in their pants to keep themselves in the cold Finnish winters. How sick! How irresponsible and downright lame!

Well Google has been quite, which I think is good as Google doesn’t need to stoop to such low level. But folks at TechCrunch shared a video by Eclectic Method which takes the Nokia VS Android battle … a video forward. Enjoy!

image thumb45 Transform Any Screen Into A Touchscreen With Nokia Plug And Touch

Nokia has some great concepts and lets not hammer them for losing out in the smartphone battle with the iPhone and Google Android OS. Nokia recently released three new models of its smartphones, the Nokia E7, C7 and the C6 running on the Symbian 3 and the Nokia N8 a couple of days back. All those look promising, but this latest video from the Nokia World has impressed me more than anything else.

image thumb30 We Will Be Back! Nokia Adopts The Spartan Spirit To Beat iPhone, Android.. Hopefully

Nokia is back… once again with a series of smartphones set to hit the markets by Christmas. I think the cell phone manufacturing goliath might very well be anticipating to give the likes of Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Android phones and the BlackBerry smartphones. The entire Nokia management is confident about Symbian 3 taking its mobile devices to the next level.

The new devices set to be released are the E7, C6 and C7 as well as the Nokia N8. And be sure that the cell phone maker crashed heavily on Apple, with Steve Job’s allegations of the Nokia devices having the Antennagate issue as well, just like the iPhone 4. First up with Apple shamelessly stealing the Nokia Phrase Connecting People and using it to market their own iPhone. That was absolutely lame of Apple in the first place. The smartest folks at Apple can design a revolutionary hardware and a mobile operating system but can’t create their own slogan and catchy phrases.

image thumb78 The Much Awaited Nokia N8 Now Available For Pre Order

Alright I know I have reviewed a few Nokia devices in the last few months, but that by no means should mean I am its fan. No personal envy, but I seriously feel that Nokia does the most needed very late. The touch screen, OS efficiency and what not? I mean they were and are market leaders and they had all the time and revenue to experiment a number of things. Anyways coming over to mobile news, the much awaited and talked about Nokia N8 is now available for pre-orders online.

Not sure how many of you are going to buy this device priced at $549 [Pre-order] but in all honesty it is a better device compared to the recent releases. Especially the Nokia X3-02. Some of the key specs are:
