Nokia MWC 2012: 41-megapixels and cheap Windows Phones

If there was a "Phoenix From The Ashes" award at Mobile World Congress it's hard to argue that Nokia wouldn't be the most worthy recipient. Twelve months ago the company was apologetically admitting it had no new devices for MWC 2011, and today it revealed a bevy of phones that opened new doors in developing markets, pushed the envelope for Windows Phone pricing, and busted the smartphone camera segment right open. We've a whole lot of Nokia coverage, so head on past the cut to get up to speed.

Nokia Asha 202, 203 and 302 hands-on

Nokia's Asha series aren't going to distract buyers looking at the Lumia 900, but for bringing smartphone-style tech down to the feature phone level they're impressively cheap, flexible devices. A combination of a new, more HTML5 capable browser, Microsoft Exchange email support on the Asha 302 and dual-SIM support on all but the 203, it's another sign of Nokia pushing what would traditionally be smartphone functionality into the sub-€100 segment. Check out more hands-on after the cut.

Nokia’s 1997 game Snake authentically recreated on Windows Phone

There aren't many mobile phone games from the 1990s that are really worth taking a second look. In fact, the entire market of vintage cell phone games is sorely uninspiring, but there is one that has and always will stand out from its monochromatic brethren. If you had a Nokia phone back in the day, then you either played Snake or you should have.

Nokia E6 Review

Nokia E6 Review

BlackBerry may be the name associated with QWERTY messaging phones, but there's a vocal cadre of Nokia users all too keen to talk about the merits of the Finnish company's keyboard-blessed candybars. The E72 met with mixed reactions, failing to quite capture affection the way its E71 predecessor did; now we have the E6 (aka Nokia E6-00), pairing keyboard and touchscreen and offering a taste of the latest Symbian flavor, Anna. Is the E6 enough to distract us from the rapid approach of Nokia's first Windows Phones? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Nokia Windows Phone deal final; Q1 2011 sees sinking smartphone share

Nokia has announced its Q1 2011 financial results, along with what the Finnish company is describing as a shift "from developing strategy to executing strategy." The Microsoft Windows Phone partnership is finally inked, and it's about time too: total mobile device sales are down 12-percent from last quarter, while smartphone sales are down 14-percent from last quarter. Still, they're higher than this time last year - up 1-percent and 13-percent respectively - and there are more Symbian devices to come: Nokia says it expects "the transition to Windows Phone as our primary smartphone platform to take about two years."

Nokia Symbian Anna OS update: Portrait QWERTY, Ovi Maps boost

Nokia Symbian Anna OS update: Portrait QWERTY, Ovi Maps boost

Nokia may be looking ahead to a shiny Windows Phone future, but that doesn't mean Symbian is left spinning in the wind. The company still expects to ship 150m Symbian devices this year (having sold 100m in 2010), and it still intends to invest in the platform to refine the experience for new and existing users. Today it's the debut of Symbian Anna, a significant refresh of the UI and underlying system.
