Nokia “Head Up”: How Lumia’s future is sharper than Glass

Are wearables like Google Glass the inevitable future for smartphones? Not if you ask Nokia, where simply floating a display in your line of sight doesn't quite satisfy the self-imposed "head up" challenge its designers and engineers are facing. The evolution of Lumia isn't just bigger displays or faster chips, it's a new way of interacting with the digital world. SlashGear sat down with Jo Harlow, EVP of Smart Devices, Marco Ahtisaari, EVP of Design, and Stefan Pannenbecker, VP of Industrial Design at Mobile World Congress this week to talk "people versus robots", rolling back the clock on convergence, and how the Finns want to pry our eyes away from smartphone screens, even if we're looking at a Lumia.

Is every phone the Facebook phone?

Is every phone the Facebook phone?

Facebook may refuse to deliver what the rumor-mill wants - an own-brand smartphone to take on the iPhone - but that's not to say it isn't following a cuckoo-style mobile strategy, progressively infesting handsets from other vendors. The company's new free voice calling service, quietly revealed in the aftermath of the Facebook Graph Search announcement, is the latest in a growing suite of mobile products that, while lacking the eye-catching appeal of a glossy slab of hardware, nonetheless shows that the social network finally has a mobile strategy.

An event is coming up this week that'll be hosted by Microsoft and Nokia in New York, it containing a whole lot of Windows Phone 8 news that appears now to have a leaky pipe.

Nokia Lumia 610 Review

Nokia Lumia 610 Review

The Lumia 610 is an interesting entry into the Windows Phone family. Microsoft lowered the barrier to entry with an update to the OS, dubbed Tango/Refresh, allowing handsets with lesser specifications into the fray. The Lumia 610 is the first shipping handset that takes advantage of the lower specs, coming with an 800Mhz processor and 256MB of RAM instead of the old 1Ghz and 512MB standard. As a result, Nokia is hoping that the reduced cost of the handset will capture the entry-level market, and we imagine Microsoft will be keeping a close eye on the situation too. Does the 610 hit the mark? Find out after the jump.

Symbian may not have been universally appealing, but at least it was unique; has Nokia sidelined its independence alongside its faithful old platform? Check out the full SlashGear review to find out.
