Nokia HERE Research: We talk Smart Cities, ethical tracking & self-driving cars

Nokia HERE Research: We talk Smart Cities, ethical tracking & self-driving cars

If you're carrying a smartphone or driving a modern car, you're a potential probe, and Nokia would love to unlock your location for its HERE Maps services. The company already has its own gathering programs in place yet, for all its gigabytes of daily data, Nokia's HERE 3D mapping car is only one part of a navigation data analysis program that combines 80,000 sources from across the globe. We sat down with Jane MacFarlane, head of HERE Research at Nokia, and along with her team responsible for making sense of the masses of data, to find out why being a probe might one day help you avoid traffic jams, travel more safely, and even discover the hottest new restaurants, all thanks to the "wisdom of crowds".

Nokia Lumia 521 vs Samsung Galaxy S II: budget boxing

Nokia Lumia 521 vs Samsung Galaxy S II: budget boxing

Thought Samsung has long since moved on from the second-generation Galaxy and tech news in general forgets about essentially any phone (even the Lumia 520) almost without fail once they've been out for a short period of time, there's a battle going on at T-Mobile between these two machines. Both the Nokia Lumia 521 (as it's called when you see it working with T-Mobile) and the Samsung Galaxy S II are currently tagged "Top Seller" on the carrier's stock listings, this honor only otherwise given to the HTC One and iPhone 5 at this very moment. What makes this set of devices so special?

Nokia Lumia 1020 Review

Nokia Lumia 1020 Review

Nokia's Lumia 1020 PureView might not need an introduction, but it may need an explanation. Announced with no small amount of fanfare (and hyperbole from Nokia CEO Stephen Elop) the new Windows Phone borrows Nokia's photography tricks from the notably-niche 808 PureView of 2012, refining it with Microsoft's OS and a more streamlined form-factor to make an attempt at the mass-market. That mass-market will get the Lumia 1020 on AT&T from July 26, but the 41-megapixel marvel has already been on the SlashGear test bench, so read on for our full review.

Nokia HERE Drive+ hits rivals’ Windows Phone 8 handsets

Nokia HERE Drive+ hits rivals’ Windows Phone 8 handsets

Nokia will offer its HERE Drive+ and HERE Transit navigation apps to Windows Phone users who didn't opt for a Lumia, though they'll have to pay if they want turn-by-turn directions. The news sees HERE Drive arrive in the Windows Phone Store for the US, UK, Canada, and several other markets as a free download, though global navigation is an in-app purchase for €15.49 ($19.90) or the local equivalent.

Nokia Lumia 521 Review

Nokia Lumia 521 Review

If you thought the Nokia Lumia 520 was good, boy are you going to have a great time with the Nokia Lumia 521. Essentially the same device as you'll be getting internationally, this T-Mobile iteration of the entry-level Windows Phone 8 device brings the same package (with slightly different radio connections and a few extra apps) to the USA, here with the same bright white back cover as we saw across the sea (one of three, as it were).

Nokia Lumia 925 Review

Nokia Lumia 925 Review

Nokia is on a roll with Windows Phone 8 - when it comes to filling out its range, anyway. The Finnish company has spent 2013 slotting a Lumia into almost every possible gap in the market, and now has a third flagship-spec model in the shape of the Nokia Lumia 925. The latest to bear PureView branding, and arguably the best-quality handset running Microsoft's platform that we've seen to-date, the Lumia 925 ticks all the boxes on paper, certainly. Is this the smartphone to sign two years of your cellular life away to? Read on for the full review.

Nokia Symbian taking final breaths this summer

Nokia Symbian taking final breaths this summer

The Symbian mobile operating system had its hay day, and surprisingly it was the number one mobile OS in the world up until a few years ago when Android took the lead. While many phone manufacturers used Symbian, Nokia was most famous for using Symbian (as they also own the platform), and it seems that after a several-year drought, the Finnish company is finally calling it quits for Symbian this summer.

Nokia Lumia 928 Review

Nokia Lumia 928 Review

Now that Verizon has its own Nokia hero smartphone working with Windows Phone 8, it's high time the platform takes off, isn't it? At the moment, the Nokia Lumia 928 is one of the nicer Windows Phone 8 devices on the market, and if it weren't for the release of the Nokia Lumia 925 (having been revealed this month right on top of the 928), it'd be an easy thing to say that this is Nokia's finest effort to date with this OS. As it stands, this device is ready instead to be the heartiest Windows Phone 8 smartphone in the USA.
