Nokia N950 MeeGo phone named: “very elegant hardware” says CTO [Video]

Nokia N950 MeeGo phone named: “very elegant hardware” says CTO [Video]

Nokia CTO Rich Green has seemingly named the company's first MeeGo device, the Nokia N950, set to launch later in 2011. Speaking at Nokia's Developer Day keynote last week, My Nokia Blog caught Green on camera suggesting that coders "should look at this as the successor to the N900, the N950." The name differs from Nokia's current nomenclature scheme, but follows directly from the Maemo-based N900 launched back in 2009.

Nokia E7 Review

Arriving on the market late, the Nokia E7 finds itself launching at a shaky point in the Finnish company's history.

MeeGo User Interface Shown Off on a Tablet [Video]

MeeGo User Interface Shown Off on a Tablet [Video]

MeeGo is still a work in progress, but at least with these little tid-bits, we get to see how that work is coming along. Even if this video doesn't show everything we'd like to see, and it's probably missing a few extras from Nokia themselves, we do get to see some homescreen action, menus, and even Mozilla's mobile Fennec browser. The look and feel of MeeGo, as far as the "demo" goes on this tablet device, seems to be a bit of an upgrade over previous iterations.

Nokia C7 Review

Nokia C7 Review

The Nokia C7 could well be described as the less outlandish sibling of the N8: a more sober design, more mainstream camera and more affordable price tag, for what's the second Symbian^3 smartphone from the company. Alternatively, it could be a business bargain. First impressions at Nokia World 2010 were solid, but does the day to day experience live up to the sturdy chassis? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Nokia N8 Review

Nokia N8 Review

It feels like we've been talking about the Nokia N8 for a long time. February 2010 saw the first murmurings, followed by a string of leaks, rumors, semi-accurate previews and finally, around seven months later, a commercial release. In the meantime there's been no shortage of speculation over whether Symbian^3 still has a place among the smartphone elite, how the North American market will take to the N8, and indeed whether Nokia is still relevant in a world of Android, iOS and other successful platforms. That's a whole lot resting on a single device, so can the Nokia N8 shoulder the strain? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
