Nokia launched its Lumia 2520 tablet late last year. We reviewed the Nokia 2520 and liked it well enough despite it running Windows RT. Nokia has made an announcement this week that there is an issue with the charger for the tablet. The charger used for this tablet in the UK and Europe is the AC-300 charger and only the 2520 uses that particular charger.
America, do not fall in love with the orange rear of the Nokia Lumia 930. The Finnish firm's new high-end Windows Phone may like to flaunt its baboon-like backside, far brighter than the sober black or white rear panels on Verizon's Lumia Icon, but for fans of color there's no point in holding your breath for a US release.
Nokia has a track-record with affordable Windows Phones. The new Nokia Lumia 630 - and its Lumia 635 sibling - follow on from the best-selling Lumia 520, only running Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box and thus benefiting from new features like the Cortana virtual assistant. Best of all, unlike many affordable Nokia of old, they're actually headed to the US market. We grabbed some hands-on time post-launch at Build 2014.
With the Nokia Lumia 930, the company is bringing the device otherwise known as the Lumia Icon to the international market. Here the device won’t just be headed for Verizon, instead moving outward. Onstage at BUILD 2014, Stephen Elop made clear that the Icon would "continue to be [their] focus in the USA."
This week Stephen Elop himself stepped onstage at Microsoft’s BUILD 2014 conference to introduce the Nokia Lumia 630 and 635. The Nokia Lumia 635 is the 4G LTE-enabled version of the device, coming with Windows Phone 8.1, a 4.5-inch display, and what Elop described as "more operator support ... than any other Lumia device to-date."
With the Nokia Lumia 630 and Nokia Lumia 635, the company is going for another release that’ll match their success with the Nokia Lumia 520. The Nokia Lumia 520 is, after all, the best-selling smartphone in its price range according to several studies as well as Nokia. Here with the Lumia 630 and 635, things get a bit bigger in all aspects.
In an effort to make certain the owners of Nokia Lumia devices were overjoyed with their continued support of the Windows Phone ecosystem this week, Stephen Elop stepped onstage at BUILD 2014. There he suggested that "all Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices" will be getting Windows 8.1 over-the-air this summer.
At this year’s Microsoft BUILD conference we’re likely to see the following device appear for the first time. Taking on many of the newest specifications outlined at MWC 2014 for Windows Phone devices, the Nokia Lumia 630 arrives with a 4.5-inch display with WVGA resolution and a quad-core Snapdragon 400 under the hood. This device will also appear with a chassis that’s thinner than the Lumia 920 while sitting at a height that’s essentially equal to the older phone.
