Nokia N9 Gets Early Hands-On, Hardware Deemed “Near Perfect”

Nokia N9 Gets Early Hands-On, Hardware Deemed “Near Perfect”

Nokia's strategy in the smartphone market is a heated subject for some out there, but it looks like the company may have a line of silver along some of those formulating storm clouds on the horizon. Thanks to Eldar Murtazin, the (in)famous Russian-based journalist who has been known to break a few Nokia-centric stories in the past, it looks like Nokia's upcoming effort, the N9, is looking very, very good. At least, when it comes to the hardware.

Nokia C7-00 gets pre-announce preview: “more balanced” than N8

Nokia C7-00 gets pre-announce preview: “more balanced” than N8

It seems even the threat of legal action can't keep Mobile-review's Eldar Murtazin from spilling the beans on unannounced Nokia handsets, with the latest on his test bench to be the upcoming Nokia C7-00.  Spotted in the wild back in early June, the Symbian^3 handset has a 3.5-inch AMOLED 640 x 360 display and, Murtazin reckons, is basically the N8 with a mere 8-megapixel camera and no HDMI output.

Nokia take N8 leaker to task (but “does not send thugs”)

Nokia take N8 leaker to task (but “does not send thugs”)

With his track record of leaks and occasionally scathing previews, we can't imagine mobile-review's Eldar Murtazin is the most popular guy at Nokia; still, we're surprised all the same that the Finnish company apparently approached the Russian Interior Ministry hoping to take him to task over allegedly stealing trade secrets.  Murtazin says that his Nokia N8 coverage touched a raw nerve; though the ministry official did ask where mobile-review's servers were physically located, for the moment the site is still online.

Nokia N9 caught on video?

Nokia N9 caught on video?

Last we heard of Nokia's N9 it was a mysterious unannounced device near the peak of the Finnish company's roadmap "house"; now we're being asked to believe that this monochromatic slider is the handset itself.  A new video purported to show the N9 in pre-release form has emerged, tipping a device similar to the N8 only with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

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 N97 Mini gets early review: Awful keyboard

Nokia N97 Mini gets early review: Awful keyboard

We knew the Nokia N97 Mini was only mildly smaller than its full-sized sibling, but Mobile-Review's Eldar Murtazin has - thanks to his early access to the QWERTY smartphone - confirmed it with a full review.  Unfortunately for Nokia, he's not impressed: a combination of insufficient price differentiation between the N97 Mini and the N97, mediocre looks and, most damning, a keyboard that's actually worse than that of the original add up to a handset that's yet to answer the original question of "why bother?"

Microsoft taps Samsung and Huawei for dual-boot Windows Phone options

Microsoft taps Samsung and Huawei for dual-boot Windows Phone options

Just as they have apparently tapped HTC for the dual-boot option for Android phones with Windows Phone 8, it's become apparent today that Microsoft may have asked Samsung and Huawei to do the same. Microsoft was tipped this past week to have suggested HTC make a selection of devices that boot to Windows Phone 8 as well as their basic Android mobile OS to increase the likelihood that a user would find Windows Phone appealing. If Microsoft does indeed get their way with the likes of HTC and Samsung as well, we may see Windows Phone 8.1 working on the HTC One Max and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Active.
