Nokia Android 11 update delays made official

Nokia Android 11 update delays made official

Although it does try its best to update its dozens of phone models, it seems that this strategy is catching up to HMD Global. Despite its boast of shipping pretty much vanilla Android, the company is struggling to keep its phones up-to-date with the latest release of Android. Now nearing the middle of the year, HMD Global is releasing a revised timeline for its Android 11 updates and it isn't looking good for the company's reputation.

Nokia X20 will also ditch the charger in the box

Nokia X20 will also ditch the charger in the box

Apple definitely set a trend when it decided to ditch the wall charger in the iPhone 12 box. Samsung and Xiaomi have already followed in their footsteps and Huawei is expected to do so soon as well. It isn't just the big companies, though, as HMD Global seems to be following the trend. The Nokia X20, one of its new affordable phones, won't be coming with one and it could affect how consumers will see the overall cost of the phone.

Nokia N-Gage games brought back to life with EKA2L1 Symbian emulator

Nokia N-Gage games brought back to life with EKA2L1 Symbian emulator

Although perhaps most notorious for turning the mobile market into a dumping ground for dozens of models, the old Nokia was also famous for some iconic phones as well as some innovations that were far too ahead of their time. Even before mobile gaming became the lucrative industry it is today, Nokia was actually the first to put out a proper gaming phone way before smartphones became the reigning device category. For those old enough to remember or those who want to see what the fuss was all about, a Symbian/S60 emulator now lets you turn your Android phone into the modern version of the Nokia N-Gage.

Nokia X20 and X10 bring affordable 5G without the Android update flaw

HMD Global has revealed its latest Nokia Android phones, including 5G connectivity at roughly $360 prices, and longer update commitments than most low-cost devices deliver. The new Nokia X20 and X10, Nokia G20 and G10, and Nokia C20 and C10 collectively make up HMD's biggest single Nokia launch in one go, while a new MVNO will throw in service too.

Android 12 beta update release date tipped with device list

This week the expected release date for Google's Android 12 Developer Beta was reaffirmed with a list of devices. The devices that'll likely gain access to Android 12 will differ from the list of devices that'll have access to the first waves of Developer Beta. The list of devices Google works with to test the Android 12 developer beta will be relatively limited - the full Android 12 release schedule will expand beyond the first limited list.

Nokia 3650 might be HMD Global’s next revival

Nokia 3650 might be HMD Global’s next revival

One of the side effects of Nokia flooding the market with a dizzying array of phones back in the days is that it had the opportunity to play around with different designs. Some of these, like the Nokia 3310, became popular for their reliability while others, like the Nokia 8110 "banana phone", became iconic for their design. And then there are some Nokia phones that some couldn't make heads or tails of and one of those might become one of HMD Global's next attempts to modernize.

Nokia 1.4 delivers big-screen Android for a shocking price

Nokia 1.4 delivers big-screen Android for a shocking price

If your primary complaint about new Android phones is that they're still too expensive, then the Nokia 1.4 would like a word. Latest from HMD Global, the new entry-level smartphone pushes up the screen size in the budget Nokia range, but also keeps the price down low: under 100 euro, in fact.

Nokia 5.4 is coming to the US unlocked

Nokia 5.4 is coming to the US unlocked

It isn't really a surprise that HMD Global has been flooding the smartphone market with a dizzying array of smartphones just like how Nokia did back in the old days. Also unsurprisingly, it hasn't made all of those available in the US, where consumers are considered a bit pickier and often lean towards the high-end tiers. That said, it does open the doors to some of its mid-range Nokia smartphones in the US from time to time, especially in unlocked versions, like the new-ish Nokia 5.4 that will be arriving in two weeks.

Robinhood GameStop stock block prompts AOC and Ted Cruz investigation threat

Robinhood GameStop stock block prompts AOC and Ted Cruz investigation threat

An almost unprecedented set of circumstances have created a situation in which normally diametrically opposed politicians agree on an action. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just called for a hearing on (and likely an investigation into) Robinhood's decision to block retail investors from purchasing stock "while hedge funds are able to trade the stock as they see fit." AOC continued, "As a member of the Financial Services Committee, I'd support a hearing if necessary."

Robinhood, WeBull and others are down, it’s not just you

Robinhood, WeBull and others are down, it’s not just you

Robinhood, WeBull and other brokerages are down for the count, right now, thanks to extreme volatility in a wide variety of stocks across several markets. If we're looking at GameStop and AMC, we see massive market manipulation and calls from regulators to stop trading altogether. If we look at cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Dogecoin, we see a bit more of the same.

Nokia 5.4 debuts in Europe, US online store launched

Nokia 5.4 debuts in Europe, US online store launched

HMD Global literally has dozens of Nokia phones littering the global market, just like the Finnish giant of old. Almost ironically but unsurprisingly, it hasn't yet flooded the US market with those easy to forget models. It does have a few which you can get only through carriers or third-party retailers but it is now making it possible for US buyers to purchase a Nokia phone directly from HMD Global. Strangely enough, it doesn't yet include the Nokia 5.4 that it just launched in Europe.
