After a crucial decision to turn to Windows Phone as principal smartphone strategy, Nokia’s Windows Phones have been on sale in Europe since the end of last year. “No one comes into the store and asks for a Windows phone,” a European carrier’s executive in charge of mobile devices said.
This is a huge problem Nokia is facing and European carriers believe Nokia has failed to challenge the dominating competitors, Google and Apple. “If the Lumia with the same hardware came with Android in it and not Windows, it would be much easier to sell”, said [...]
A select few Nokia Lumia 710 and Lumia 800 units were shipped with unlocked Qualcomm bootloaders instead of the locked Nokia versions, according to reports.
When a device with such an unlocked bootloader was connected to a Linux computer a Qualcomm storage device popped up, basically allowing full reads and writes to the NAND. “That means you can actually write data to the device, allowing custom ROMs and more”, like interop unlocked ones. Of course, there are risks of bricking your phone which would not be covered by warranty. However, if you are interested in the [...]
Last time we looked, Nokia Music was updated to version 2.0 with UI and audio improvements. This time around, the application has been updated to version 2.1.
The changelog includes general improvements in performance and responsiveness, Nokia Music Unlimited (only available in selected countries and on certain devices) as well as controls for shuffle and repeat in the music player. If you have a Nokia Windows Phone and you use the application you might want to consult your Marketplace on the device for the refresh.
