Most other devices lack iOS SMS security hole

Last week we found out about a new SMS security hole in the iPhone that could potentially leave users vulnerable to phishing attempts. To put it simply, this hole allows undesirable people to change the reply-to address on the texts they send you, making them appear to be legitimate and possibly convincing you to hand over some personal details. AdaptiveMobile has published a new report on the security hole, and while it may be scary for iPhone users, it appears that this flaw doesn't affect devices running a different OS.

Nokia 808 PureView Review

Excitement, about a Symbian phone? The Nokia 808 PureView has forced many to reconsider their platform loyalties by virtue of its big number boast: 41-megapixels of camera goodness. The surprise stand-out of Mobile World Congress, the 808 PureView is the first public evidence of a five year labor of love inspired by ultra-high-resolution satellite photography. There's compromise galore involved, however, to join the early PureView train, so is it worth it? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

The Nokia 808 PureView has landed

Nokia's 808 PureView has landed, and we're the most excited we've been about a Symbian phone in years. Gradually rolling out in Europe this month, and up for preorder - albeit with a hefty off-contract price tag of $699 - in the US with deliveries next month, the 808 has progressively wowed us since its MWC debut with its game-changing approach to photography.

Nokia has big plans for PureView, including thinner handsets and Windows Phone support, though there's more than just branding that's getting in the way of slimming the smartphone camera tech. We grabbed some hands-on playtime with the Nokia 808 PureView in Germany this week, at the headquarters of long-time photography partner Carl Zeiss, where we not only discovered just what the camera is capable of, but some of the decisions - technical, product and otherwise - behind the PureView concept.

Nokia 808 PureView Explored: Hands-on Samples

Nokia gave us no small surprise when it launched the Nokia 808 PureView and its new camera-phone technology. Promising a headline-grabbing 41-megapixel sensor, paired with image processing systems more akin to what you'd find in spy satellites than smartphones, it's the first fruit of a project five years in the making. Until now, though, all the sample images we've seen have been produced by Nokia's own hand, so we understandably jumped at the chance to join the PureView team at the headquarters of lens supplier and imaging specialist Carl Zeiss in Southern Germany to take some shots of our own. Read on for the full sample gallery - together with some comparison shots with the Nokia Lumia 900 - along with the full story as to why PureView is so special.

Nokia 808 ad lets PureView speak for itself

If this were any other Symbian phone, we would be looking at that large price tag with extreme skepticism, but the Nokia 808 PureView isn’t an ordinary Symbian phone. It’s packing Nokia’s PureView technology, bringing that famous 41 megapixel camera that stole the show at MWC 2012.
