MeeGo, a choice for future Tablets

Nokia first mentioned that Symbian will still be in their minds but not as much as it was. MeeG0 still doesn’t have a device which leaves space to create Tablets but so does Windows OS. Elop doesn’t plan to initiate Tablets with Steven but it is a choice. Nokia hasn’t created a Tablet therefore it will take long to acheive that goal.

Nokia isn’t sure if Tablets is their thing, that’s why they are delaying but also testing out Tablets. Elop did mention that if Tablets are created, they may remain internal rather than external and internal. Another way to stop bad comments?


Nokia isn’t planning to abandon Symbian soon, WP7 delayed

Everyone thought that Nokia shall be abandon Symbian when the Nokia-Microsoft deal was signed. Nokia has made a statement regarding that it won’t abandon Symbian ” Nokia shall continue to milk Symbian to the possible end than it shall focus on MeeGo and WP7″.

Even though Nokia has closed of this deal, Nokia won’t be releasing the WP7 smartphones till next year January. It shouldn’t take so long as these rumors state. It isn’t the first time that Nokia will insert another OS into a device as well as it isn’t the first time that Windows will be on a smartphone either. Why the delay then?


Another 4G device leaked for South Africa

South Africa is a developing country in terms of network. More and more Tablets and devices that are equipped with 4G are appearing by the day. First the Motorola Xoom, then the Playbook candidate and now the leaked HTC Pyramid. It is told by some that this HTC shall feature the Android Pyramid, hence the name.

This HTC has similar front looks like the Windows concept phones if you think carefully. Even though this has similar looks to the concept phones, this Pyramid will still feature a display size of 4.3 inch screen and a 1.2 GHz processor. Maybe this has something to do with Windows?


Symbian devices to be announced at CTIA, media exclusive

Nokia was at the Mobile World Congress which was was held a month ago, this time, Nokia shall be announcing Symbian devices at the event but the devices are exclusive to US carriers. It was when Nokia said “We promised to sell millions more Symbian devices. Join us as we spotlight our latest solution for U.S. consumers”, it occurred to me that Windows Devices are once again classified as concept.

It’s best to first perfect the software probably under the table and then announce the deal so that customers can see that this new Windows Phone is really worth it, no glitches!


Windows OS devices categorized as concept phones again

Windows OS devices were to be launched this year but they were delayed according to rumors. If you read the Nokia regulatory filling in the US, it was stated there that it would take 2 years atleast to implement the Nokia-Microsoft strategy. According to Canalys, Windows shares had inflated 3% while 31% deflated in the Nokia shares. Some reasons for this were that Nokia was paralyzed for 2 years while LG and HTC created top class smartphones.

An estimated 20 rumored Symbian devices are to be revealed this year while the Windows platform was shifted for next year, the same year that the Mayans had predicted that the world will end. Who knows, if its the false truth, Nokia can try even harder.


ViewSonic dual-booting Tablet

ViewSonic has created a dual-booting tablet. Shipping started a few hours back, this device may not even be somewhere near the iPad 2 Specs says 2dayBlog. The iPad 2 doesn’t support dual-booting and this Tablet does, in terms of display, the iPad has lost here.

This time, Android and Windows is available at the same time in this 10.1″ display. Similar to the Chinese Netbook, in some aspects this Tablet sure does beat it. Another Honeycomb Tablet thrown into the market. As much as this Tablet is expensive, theViewPad that runs Mac OS is much cheaper than this dual boot.


One of Nokia’s slimmest concept devices

Nokia has been in the game of creating great software and terrible deals according to the loyal’s of Nokia. They enjoyed Nokia until Steve had to make a deal with Elop, a former Microsoft employee. The Nokia 888 isn’t a Tablet or the regular smartphone but a slim device that is atleast the thickness 20 sheets of paper or less.


Having a phone making a tantrum during an alarm is rather unusual for everyone. It is said that this subject shall be one of the first phones of Nokia to have 3D Windows or MeeGo platform. If you don’t have a matching bracelet for your white bridal dress, then the 88 is the best and productive bracelet I can recommend.


Qt licencing and services sold to Digia to grow

Nokia had an agreement with Microsoft done where the Windows platform would be used but the latter shall be remembered too but before this, TrollTech was acquired by Nokia back in 2008.

This time, Digia will buy the Qt commercial licensing and services business from the creator, 3,500 desktop and embedded customers actively using Qt today will also be transfered to them in the coming time. This is what the Nokia Vice President  of Application and Service Frameworks commented:

Nokia will continue to invest in developing Qt as a cross-platform framework for mobile, desktop and embedded segments, focusing on open source development and expansion, we wanted a partner who can drive the commercial licensing and services business around Qt. Digia has proven, in-depth Qt expertise, operational excellence and a keen interest in growing and improving the overall Qt community and so well positioned to expand the Qt Commercial licensing and services business

Don’t worry, you’ll get a call soon enough!


Nokia N9 classified as alien, Symbian tarnished

Nokia has made a partnership with Windows, many of the devices are been given Windows 7, the latest OS. Nokia mentioned that it will always continue to renew Symbian but despite that promise and many other bugs related to Symbian, Nokia is advancing with other devices and other OS systems.

The Nokia N9 has an appearance that is classified as an alien appearance as it looks rather unusual. It also has many similarities to the previous device of Nokia, called Nokia N8. The devices have many look-a-like. Another similarity that it has, Apple, that is a major competitor and in some ways, it is better. The iPhone has been compared to the outer looks of this alien.

The N8 does have another version of it, it is called E7 and here’s one more addition to the Symbian^3 folks!
