Welcome to Thursday evening, everyone. This afternoon, RIM delivered its quarterly report, and even though it didn't look too good, it was still better than quarterly reports of the past. Samsung is teasing a new Galaxy Note II event for October 24, while Google turned 14 years old today and celebrated with a brand new doodle. Qualcomm introduced a pair of new processors for mobile devices today, and a series of new iPhone patents deals with things like disappearing buttons, 3D displays, and invisible speakers.

Nokia slaps HTC with Windows Phone 8 innovation snub

Nokia slaps HTC with Windows Phone 8 innovation snub

Nokia has lashed out at HTC over the 8X and 8S, dismissing the new "signature" Windows Phone 8 handsets as rebrands that are lacking in innovation. "Instead of changing a product name, we're changing the game with benefits like PureView, nav & wireless charging" Nokia executive vice president of sales and marketing Chris Weber tweeted shortly after HTC revealed its new line-up. "It takes more than matching color to match the innovation of the Lumia 920."

Nokia LTE Everything Everywhere Lumia 920 deal tipped; Apologizes again for PureView goof

Nokia LTE Everything Everywhere Lumia 920 deal tipped; Apologizes again for PureView goof

Nokia is reportedly planning an exclusive 4G deal with UK carrier Everything Everywhere for the Lumia 920,  a potential distraction from its second mea culpa over the faked camera sample goof. The UK exclusive would see Everything Everywhere - including T-Mobile UK and Orange - snap up the Windows Phone 8 device for a November launch, the Financial Times' sources say, echoing Nokia's sole-carrier deal with AT&T in the US on previous handsets. However, the new Lumia is still being overshadowed by Nokia's faking of the initial photography samples, something the company now says will be handled with an internal inquiry.

Hang on, Nokia’s Lumia 920 only records mono video?

Nokia's Lumia 920 may be focused on photography with its PureView-branded camera, but the Windows Phone 8 handset's Full HD video recording will only store mono sound, despite an advanced microphone array. Detailed specifications shown to SlashGear yesterday confirmed that the Lumia 920 has three of Nokia's special High Amplitude Audio Capture (HAAC) microphones, co-developed by the company for the 808 PureView and delivering audio recording more akin to what the human ear can hear. However, according to Nokia's photography chief, the Lumia 920 won't actually record stereo sound.
