Canceled Nokia Moonraker smartwatch shown off in video

In the tech industry, we are sometimes left wondering about ideas and products that never came to be. Just a few days ago we saw a glimpse of the modular Ara smartphone. This time, we’re being treated to what could have been Nokia’s first ever smartwatch. Given recent events, perhaps its only smartwatch. The Moonraker, as it was called, never reached the market, but that doesn’t mean there was no actual smartwatch produced. And for the first time, we’re actually seeing a real working, finished smartwatch that could have been.

Nokia D1C might be an Android tablet after all

Nokia D1C might be an Android tablet after all

If you’ve been waiting for a new Nokia Android smartphone, whether out of loyalty or out of curiosity, you might have to wait a bit longer. The Nokia D1C, believed to be the company’s first smartphone after selling its mobile business to Microsoft, might not actually be a smartphone. According to a Geekbench entry, it is going to be a rather large 13.8-inch Android 7.0 tablet instead. And while it confirms specs we’ve heard of so far, this combination actually makes even less sense.

Like this recent sighting of a certain Android smartphone made by none other than Nokia itself. The device, which bears a model number D1C, represents a repressed collective interest in seeing the former giant now underdog return to the market. Given how the Android market seems to be in a bit of a mess, that does sound like the perfect time.

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.

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.
