Video: Nokia loses its mind with nightmare-inducing Lumia ad

We’ve been wondering about Nokia’s sanity for a while but the company has now made its complete descent into madness official with its latest ad for the Lumia 2520 tablet. The ad involves… well, there’s no easy way to describe it, but it seems to involve a man going into the world’s creepiest barbershop and asking to get a mullet-style haircut from a stylist who makes Sweeney Todd look like a cuddly puppy.  More →

Display expert: Microsoft has much to learn from Nokia about tablets

Although Microsoft is a much larger company than Nokia with a bigger workforce and more resources, it seems that the one-time Finnish dynamo has managed to completely trump Microsoft when it comes to building a top-notch tablet display. DisplayMate president Raymond Soneira, whom we last saw trashing the Retina iPad mini’s display, writes that the display on the Nokia Lumia 2520 is superior to the display of Microsoft’s Surface 2 tablet in just about every way in terms of brightness, contrast and overall color gamut.

Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, Lumia 2520 tablet to launch on November 22nd

Now, according to a report from WPCentral, inventory listings have confirmed that both Nokia’s Lumia 1520 phablet and the Lumia 2520 tablet will be available at AT&T and Verizon on November 22nd. The listings also show that the Lumia 2520 will be available in red and black on Verizon (although only the black variation appears for AT&T) and the Lumia 1520 will be available in red, black, yellow and white on AT&T. The Lumia 1520 is expected to retail for $549 off contract, $199 on contract. More →

Surface 2 Lumia 2520 Comparison

Qualcomm: Surface 2 is easily outclassed by ‘brilliant’ Lumia 2520

Qualcomm: Surface 2 is easily outclassed by ‘brilliant’ Lumia 2520

Qualcomm has taken sides in the battle of Windows RT tablets. CNET reports that Qualcomm product management senior vice president Raj Talluri thinks that Nokia’s recently unveiled Lumia 2520 easily outclasses Microsoft’s own Surface 2 in terms of GPU performance, wireless connectivity and other metrics. In fact, Talluri thinks that the “brilliant” Lumia 2520 performs so well that “it’s not really even a contest” between the two tablets because “in every area, it’s much bigger, faster, and lower power.” Talluri’s remarks shouldn’t come as a surprise, of course, since Qualcomm supplies the chips for the Lumia 2520 while the Surface 2 relies on the Nvidia Tegra 4 chipset. Even so, the Lumia 2520′s specs are very impressive and it’s nice to see that people interested in Windows RT tablets will have at least one other choice besides the Surface.

End of an era: Nokia unveils six final consumer devices

Nokia is aiming to make a bigger splash in the mobile market by releasing its first-ever phablet and tablet this year, two among the six final consumer devices that Nokia will ever debut. On Tuesday Nokia announced its new Lumia 1520 and Lumia 1320 phablets as well as its Lumia 2520 tablet. As previous leaks suggested, the Lumia 1520 features a 6-inch 1080p display, a 20-megapixel PureView camera, a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and Windows Phone 8. The Lumia 1320, meanwhile, is the same size as the Lumia 1520 but its display is only 720p and it has just a 5-megapixel camera without PureView technology. The Lumia 1520 will carry an off-contract price of $749 while the Lumia 1320 will have an off-contract price of $339. The Lumia 1520 will be released in the United States in the fourth quarter of 2013 while the Lumia 1320 will be targeted more toward emerging markets. More →

Nokia’s parting gift to the world: A day-glo version of Microsoft $1B flop

Nokia’s parting gift to the world: A day-glo version of Microsoft $1B flop

Nokia has been a household name around the world ever since it burst on to the mobile scene and helped shape the industry as we know it today. Then, the company was steamrolled by Apple and Google. Nokia will soon begin to gradually disappear from the general public’s eye as its devices and services businesses are absorbed by Microsoft. There are still a bunch of near-complete products in the company’s pipeline though, and it seemingly plans to spill them all out on the tablet during the Nokia World conference later this month. Among them is a parting gift to the world. One device in particular that illustrates just how badly Nokia lost its way toward the end. What is it, exactly? A day-glo version of Microsoft’s $1 billion flop. More →
