Nokia OZO pro VR cam new price revealed in China launch

While virtual reality technology has admittedly become more accessible to consumers, not everything is actually affordable. Dedicated and sophisticated equipment like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift are not something you'll buy on a whim. And neither is Nokia's professional VR camera, the OZO. As the Finnish company launches the product in China, it has also revealed the new price tag for this VR experience creator. And while significantly lower than last year's number, it's still something that only large companies will be able to afford.

It might be too late for a Nokia Android phone

The Nokia-branded Android smartphone we've demanded since before the company's ill-fated commitment to Windows Phone is finally coming, but it may be too little, too late. News today that Nokia will license its name for the next ten years to a new line of phones and tablets, only running Google's platform rather than Windows 10, seemed initially to be the perfect opener to Google I/O 2016, but it also raises one big question: does anybody still care about a Nokia device?

Microsoft sells Nokia brand use to Foxconn and HMD global

There was a time when there was one, unquestionable king of cellphones. No, I'm not talking about Apple, as this was before their time.

Well the brand is looking to make a comeback.

Nokia acquires Withings to make more devices

It would seem more and more each time Nokia reveals another acquisition that they got the better end of the deal when they sold their phones division to Microsoft. Today they've announced that they've made a deal with Withings to acquire their digital health products and apps business in its entirety. This means that Nokia's back in business - in one of the most (surprisingly) long lasting sectors of the smart device universe over the past decade - health technology. Devices. Apps. Withings is about to be part of Nokia.

Stephen Elop has another new job

Stephen Elop has another new job

After leaving Microsoft for a job at Nokia, then joining Microsoft again, Stephen Elop left Microsoft again to join another company. That company is Telstra. That's Australia's largest telecommuinications provider Telstra, a company that Elop is now a part of with a brand new (newly created) title as Group Executive - Technology, Innovation, and Strategy. We must assume that it'll only be a matter of time before the company is assimilated by Microsoft and Elop is given another leadership position which he will assume for less tan two years - that's sarcasm.

WhatsApp is ending support for old platforms like BlackBerry, Nokia

Popular messaging platform WhatsApp has seen almost non-stop growth since its Facebook acquisition a few years ago, even reaching one billion active users earlier this month. The app has been around for seven years now, but with that age and growth the company has decided to discontinue support for WhatsApp on several older mobile operating systems. The good news is that there's a fairly small chance the device you have will be affected, unless of course you're a big BlackBerry or Nokia user. Likewise if you rely on an ancient Android phone.
