In the epic mobile dominance battle we sometimes get devices that cross into other territories and impose their will on other devices’ jurisdiction. We’re seeing that now with the image above — the 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520 smartphone and the  7-inch Kindle Fire HDX tablet. I’ve had the Nokia Lumia 1520 for about a week […]

I just got my hands on the new Nokia Lumia 1520 for AT&T. It has a large 6-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution. When Nokia contacted me about reviewing this phone, I knew I was in for a surprise. But not this big of  a surprise. It almost feels like I’m holding a […]

Reviewed Item: YESOO Ultra Slim Fit Flexible Case Cover For Nokia Lumia 1020 I say this all the time. I’m not a huge fan of covers on my phones, I like them bare so I can get the real experience that the manufacturer intended. Especially on a phone like the Nokia Lumia 1020 which has […]

Its been nearly three years since a partnership was formed between Nokia and Microsoft, an abrupt departure from a solid plan ushered in by Stephen Elop that was met with much resistance and anger from loyal Nokia purists. Utilizing a new mobile operating platform, a unique design language borrowed from an “experimental” Meego device, bright […]
