Nokia E7 Review

Nokia E7 Review

Arriving on the market late, the Nokia E7 finds itself launching at a shaky point in the Finnish company's history. Under new management, suffering doubts - internal and external - over the strength of its current platforms, and watching increasing amounts of attention and revenue being taken by key rivals like Apple, Nokia has high expectations for its new business flagship. Misplaced, misguided or money in the bank? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

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.

Nokia E7: 4-inch QWERTY smartphone outed

Nokia's third new smartphone for Nokia World 2010 is the Nokia E7, the spiritual successor to the original Nokia 9000 Communicator.  It has a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen display, a slide-out full QWERTY keyboard and a slimline stainless steel case.  And, as Anssi Vanjoki insisted at several points during his keynote, "it's BIG."

Nokia and Intel open Joint Innovation Center: 3D UIs and mobile holograms ahoy!

Nokia and Intel open Joint Innovation Center: 3D UIs and mobile holograms ahoy!

We already knew Nokia and Intel were deeply in love, thanks to their collaboration on MeeGo, but now the pairing has decided to hook up with the University of Oulu in Finland and open a joint research center.  Part of the Intel Labs Europe scheme, the new Joint Innovation Center will focus on "new and compelling mobile user experiences," taking advantage of mobile device processing grunt to offer 3D graphics and even holograms.

Nokia N900 gets Maemo 1.2 update; official MeeGo a no-go

Nokia N900 gets Maemo 1.2 update; official MeeGo a no-go

Nokia's N900 has just been gifted a software update, though it's not the MeeGo v1.0 firmware we're waiting for (more bad news about that after the cut).  Maemo 5 version 1.2 (v10.2010.19-1) is out in the UK today and will go global by the end of the week; it boosts email support, adds Facebook IM chat, video calling and portrait-orientation browsing, together with tweaking Nokia Ovi Maps.

Nokia N8: 32GB version tipped, removable battery & QWERTY speculation

Nokia N8: 32GB version tipped, removable battery & QWERTY speculation

Nokia's N8 certainly seems to be creating some hype for the Finnish company, and we can't imagine that's going down too badly at Nokia HQ.  Currently being picked over is the N8's ability to hook up to an external hard drive and access its files - something that we actually knew from the spec sheet back on the day of the N8's launch, since that detailed the USB on-the-go support  - together with rumors that a 32GB N8 is planned together with the 16GB Nokia announced.

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 N8 gets official: €370 in Q3 2010 [Video]

Nokia have officially announced the N8 smartphone, the handset we saw prematurely reviewed (and somewhat panned) yesterday, and the first from the company to pack a 12-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, HDMI connectivity and Symbian^3 OS.  As we've heard before, there's a 3.5-inch 640 x 360 capacitive touchscreen, GPS and 16GB of built-in storage plus a microSD card slot.
