Here's What Tablets Looked Like in 2001, Courtesy of the Nokia M510

It's probably for the best that tablets didn't really enter the public mindset until a few years ago, as the Nokia M510 Web Tablet from the distant past year of 2001 shows that the technology of the early 2000s wasn't exactly... glamorous. Read More >>

Symbian is Dead: Good Riddance

As part of its earnings report, Nokia let slip that Symbian, wrecker of devices and boggler of minds, is dead. Nokia will design NO MORE SYMBIAN DEVICES EVER! That's right folks, the 808 Pureview was the last Nokia device to be riddled with Symbian-itis. Yeah, a couple of other people dabble in Symbian, but it was Nokia's baby; now that it's exterminated it, Symbian should be gone for good. PARTY TIME! [Nokia] Read More >>

UK Networks Say No Thanks to Nokia's 41-Megapixel 808 PureView

I can't say this surprises me, but our networks have more or less all come out and said: "What, Symbian? No thanks." None of them are picking up Nokia's beastly new 808 PureView, even if it has an incredible 41-megapixel camera. Read More >>

Nokia 808 PureView Lightning Review: A Really Great Camera With an Infuriating Phone Attached

Nokia's 808 PureView made a big impression on the tech world at MWC this year, and for good reason. With a 41-megapixel camera that's as impressive as it sounds, it's certainly something special. We were amazed by the photos it produced when we took a trip to the home of Carl Zeiss to have a play, but what about the rest of the phone? Read More >>

Nokia 808 PureView Hands-On: A Superb Camera (With a Phone Attached)

Nokia's 808 PureView made a big splash and caused a fair bit of controversy at MWC this year. 41 actual megapixels crammed into a cameraphone? It sounds ludicrous, especially when you hear it's running Symbian. The 808 PureView will be out around the start of June, so we grabbed some time with it to see if that beastly sensor is really everything Nokia promises it'll be. Read More >>

People In the UK Are Still Buying Symbian Phones

New research has shown that Nokia’s Windows Phone strategy hasn’t totally backfired – it’s now selling more Lumias than Symbian-powered handsets. That’s great, but the real take away from this is that people are still buying Symbian handsets in the UK. You have to ask, why? Read More >>

Nokia: "Some People Think We've Gone Too Far"

Dreamt up in a hotel bar in Japan by a couple of Nokia execs, the Nokia 808 Pureview phone has completely stolen MWC with its 41-megapixel sensor. I grabbed some time with Nokia's lead programme manager for imaging, Damian Dinning, to chat about how it's "almost like [they've] just invented time travel, it's that extreme." Read More >>

Nokia 808 Pure View Phone Has a 41-Megapixel Camera. FORTY-ONE ACTUAL MEGAPIXELS.

Forgive our capitals-explosion, but we're a little shocked right now. Nokia just announced a cameraphone with a 41-megapixel sensor. FORTY-ONE MEGAPIXELS. Naturally Nokia's sticking with Carl Zeiss lenses, but that 41-megapixel camera can shoot 7728 x 5354 photos in 16:9 format, or if you prefer 4:3, in 7152 x 5368. There's just one thing: It runs Symbian. Read More >>

The Most Popular Mobile OS on Earth Doesn't Exist Anymore

A little over a week ago, Nokia killed off the Symbian name, instead calling the platform Nokia Belle and, hopefully, letting it die a swift and unencumbered death. And then yesterday we find out that the very same Symbian, is the most popular mobile platform in the whole wide world. Read More >>

Symbian Is Dead

In a branding equivalent of quietly dumping a corpse off a pier in the middle of the night, Nokia is retiring the Symbian moniker for good. Except it's not dead—now it's just called Nokia Belle. Belle! Ha! Ha. Read More >>
