Nokia N900 sold “well in excess” of 100,000 in five weeks; Gartner figures seriously wrong claims source

Nokia N900 sold “well in excess” of 100,000 in five weeks; Gartner figures seriously wrong claims source

Analyst predictions - like any other - should generally be taken with a pinch of salt (the Steve Ballmer at WWDC 2010 speculation is good evidence of quite how much sodium is necessary), but it seems someone at Gartner has been seriously mistaken in their counting.  They're quoted as claiming under 100,000 Nokia N900 units were sold in its first five months on the market; however, a source we spoke to at Nokia today told us that in fact the Finnish company sold "well in excess of 100,000" N900 handsets in the first five weeks.

Apple sue Nokia: “Companies must compete by inventing their own technologies, not just by stealing ours” [Updated]

As press releases go, Apple's latest is about the briefest and most direct we can remember seeing.  The company is countersuing Nokia - who recently brought a lawsuit against Apple - and alleges that the Finns have infringed on 13 Apple patents.  "Other companies must compete with us by inventing their own technologies" Brian Sewell, Apple's general counsel and SVP is quoted as saying, "not just by stealing ours."

Nokia recalls 46 million cell phone batteries

Nokia recalls 46 million cell phone batteries

Well Sony shouldn't feel bad, they're not the only ones recalling batteries these days. Now mobile phone giant Nokia is reaclling roughly 46 million cell phone batteries.

The batteries affected are model number BL-5C and were manufactured between December 2005 and November of 2006. Quite a few Nokia phones use this battery ranging from the 1100 series up to the N91 and E60.

Nokia E90 – does the keyboard live up to expectations?

Nokia E90 – does the keyboard live up to expectations?

Oh dear.  Initial reports on the Nokia E90 are trickling in, and like a warm rivulet of liquid down your inner thigh it's not particularly great news.  A bone of contention - and demonstrating just how subjective smartphones really are - is the keyboard.  My Symbian readily heap praise on it:

"Only good words can be said about the keyboard. It has the same height as the keyboard of the 9500 and the same width as the keyboard of the 9300(i). And, just like with the dimensions of the device, it's a PERFECT combination. What's more, in contrast to 9500's and 9300's flat keys, the keys in the E90 are slightly convex and shaped in the way that makes you clearly feel where each key begins or ends"

This, however, stands distinctly at odds with The Register's hands-on report, where they find the keyboard to be too small to touch-type on and perhaps too broad to comfortably thumb-type with: "Alas, unless you have very small fingers indeed, you're going to be disappointed."
