Nokia 5230 Nuron gets reviewed: needs to be cheaper

Nokia 5230 Nuron gets reviewed: needs to be cheaper

Nokia smartphones offered by US carriers are still relatively rare, so it's with no small amount of interest that we checked out the Nokia 5230 Nuron for T-Mobile review over at SlashPhone.  The handset, known as the 5230 XpressMusic in Europe, is designed to give entry-level smartphone users a cheaper bite of the touchscreen pie, but in return for the $70 sticker they'll have to make do with a resistive display and no WiFi.

Nokia 5230 gets hands-on preview: inexpensive entertainment

The Nokia 5230 is the Finnish firm's attempt to cash in on the success - and shape - of the 5800 XpressMusic with a more budget-minded entry-level version, and going by gsmhelpdesk's hands-on preview it sounds like they may be on to a winner.  The 5230 gets praised for its ease of use and sound quality, happily using a standard 3.5mm headphone socket rather than anything unpleasantly proprietary.

Nokia Lumia 920 PureView camera hands-on vs Samsung Galaxy S III

Nokia Lumia 920 PureView camera hands-on vs Samsung Galaxy S III

The Nokia Lumia 920 in its AT&T iteration has landed on the SlashGear test bench complete with PureView imaging and Carl Zeiss wide-angle optics this week - so of course it's immediately time to test it against the Samsung Galaxy S III. We'll be testing its camera against the iPhone 5 as well rather soon - and whatever other devices you request as well - but first it's time to battle one of the biggest competitors Nokia has in the field. The Samsung Galaxy S III wasn't originally pushed specifically on its photo-taking abilities nearly so much as the Lumia 920 has been, so pay close attention to how they compare in some real-world tests.

Nokia: misguided or misunderstood?

Nokia: misguided or misunderstood?

Of all the mobile device companies out there today, you could make a strong argument for calling Nokia the most misunderstood. Fresh to the table this morning comes the Nokia N8 - capably specified and distinctively "of" the company - a device that on the face of it should slot somewhere in among the Droid Incredible, iPhone and Nexus One for lustworthiness. While the company press machine will happily tell you that more than 1.2bn people, worldwide, use Nokia devices every day - and Nokia enthusiasts can legitimately rival Apple fans for their rabid levels of devotion - there's already a sense among many that the N8 is just the latest flawed icing on a misguided corporate cake. Where is Nokia going wrong?

Nokia Comes With Music gets DRM-free Chinese launch

Nokia Comes With Music gets DRM-free Chinese launch

If you were to believe the hype, China is a hotbed of counterfeit software and fake products, and now Nokia are throwing Comes With Music into the mixture.  The Finns have announced that their Comes With Music service is launching - as Yue Sui Xiang - in China, with no DRM on downloaded tracks; subscriptions range from twelve months to two years, and once that period is up you can keep any songs you've downloaded from them.  Of course, thanks to the absence of DRM this time around, you're also free to load up the tracks on other media playing devices.

T-Mobile HTC HD2 price leaks, plus CLIQ XT and Nokia Nuron details

While we've pretty much known that T-Mobile plan to launch the HTC HD2 in the US sometime this month, what we haven't been aware of is what sort of pricing we should expect.  Thanks to a nifty leak from Tmonews, however, we now know figures for not only the HD2 but the CLIQ XT and the Nokia Nuron (aka the ExpressMusic 5230).  Best news?  The HD2 isn't as expensive as we feared it might be.
