Here’s my review of the HTC 8X which is the first Windows Phone 8 device that I got to try out. The Windows Phone I used before this was the Nokia Lumia 900. Before we continue, I just want to warn you that this is running pre-production software. There might be changes or improvements when it hits the stores.
Which is the better Nokia Lumia Windows Phone for you: the Nokia Lumia 900 or the Nokia Lumia 800? Here’s a comparison on video.
I’ve always been a fan of Nokia’s cameraphones because it meant carrying one device instead of a point-and-shoot camera AND a phone. In regards to imaging, my favorites were the Nokia N93, N82, N86 8MP, and the N8. Nokia recently announced the 808 PureView which is going to be Nokia’s best imaging phone yet. I’ve played with the device at Mobile World Congress and was impressed especially with the technology behind it. There’s just one problem. It’s not a Windows Phone device.
I had a hard time getting a prepaid SIM card in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress, so I was glad Tripneter reached out before the trip to check out their 3G mobile hotspot service. With Tripneter, you can connect up to 5 devices to the hotspot. The young company also delivers the mobile hotspot to your hotel in Spain before you check in. Here’s my video review.
The Nokia Lumia 710 just launched at T-mobile, but there’s another Windows Phone device the carrier is offering that may sway customers away. It’s the HTC Radar. The Nokia Lumia 710 costs less than the Radar, but it appears that HTC’s device offers more features. Here’s my video comparison. Take a look.
I’ve been playing with the T-mobile Nokia Lumia 710 for at least a week already and now I’m ready to share my review. It’s the first Nokia Windows Phone in the US. It will be available on January 11th for only $50 at T-mobile. You might even find it for free when Amazon starts selling it. Is the Nokia Lumia 710 for you?
Here’s our Nokia Lumia 800 review. When the Fedex shipment tracker said the Nokia Lumia 800 was at my door, I quickly took a cab home. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Nokia’s latest hero device. A couple of paranoid thoughts mixed with excitement went through my head during the half hour ride. What if one of my neighbors took it? What if the delivery man dropped it off at the wrong door? Fortunately, the package was safe, waiting for me when I got home.
The Foursquare application 4squick for Symbian was updated earlier today to 0.715. The major changes include faster startup time, public/private check-in, share to Facebook or Twitter, leaderboard, user profiles, and bug fixes. I made a video to show the new features. Check it out!
