Nokia just crushed our dreams

One of the biggest dreams of many Android fans has been the mythical high-end Nokia Android phone the company never got to make. However, the Nokia Android rumor keeps coming back time and again, building brief excitement before returning to a dormant state.

A few days ago, a report said that what’s left of the Finnish company will soon get back into the smartphone business. But now, the company denied the new rumor, although it’s not entirely bad news for Android fans. More →

Nokia Android Phones Release Date

I’m tired of getting excited about Nokia Android phones, but I can’t help it

I’m tired of getting excited about Nokia Android phones, but I can’t help it

For years, I waited for Nokia to change its mind and start making the gorgeous Android handsets many fans wanted from the company. Instead Nokia steered clear of a path that may have brought it some success, and eventually succumbed to iOS and Android. Yet, Re/code has learned that Nokia is once again working on Android smartphones, something that was previously rumored as well, and I can’t help but get excited all over again. More →

Nokia N1 Hands-on

This iPad mini ‘clone’ is the only Android tablet you’ll want to buy

This iPad mini ‘clone’ is the only Android tablet you’ll want to buy

Let’s get the unpleasant part out of the way from the beginning, the Nokia N1 is awfully similar to the iPad mini. Nokia didn’t even really try to deny the N1’s resemblance to Apple’s tablet when showing me the device at MWC 2015. But the tablet is an unbelievably sexy device, and is quite possibly the only Android tablet you should consider buying in the near future. More →

Nokia is finally building the Android phones you’ve been dreaming of

Nokia is finally building the Android phones you’ve been dreaming of

Finally? Too little too late? The smartphone market has never been as crowded as it is right now, but it will soon have one more new entrant that will be a familiar name to just about everyone in the developed (and developing) world: Nokia. When then-CEO Stephen Elop made the decision to adopt Windows Phone instead of Android, enthusiasts let out a collective sigh. Right up until Nokia sold off its devices business to Microsoft, they continued to wonder what might have been if Nokia had instead adopted Android.

And soon, it looks like we may finally find out. More →

One of the best Android launchers just got even better – and you can finally download it

Nokia surprised the mobile community this past summer when the company unveiled its first ever Android app, Z Launcher. With its devices and services business out of the way and its obligations to Microsoft regarding Windows Phone gone, the company wasted no time in embracing Google’s mobile platform.

Z Launcher, a nifty and intelligent Android launcher that places a user’s most popular apps on the home screen and changes based on the time of the day, was initially released as a pre-beta intended to be made available to 10,000 initial testers.

By the end of its first day of availability, Z Launcher had been downloaded 100,000 times and Nokia had to stop accepting new users. More →

Nokia N1: Nokia bursts back onto the scene with an all-aluminum Android 5.0 tablet

Nokia recently shed its devices and services group in a multi-billion dollar deal that saw its entire Windows Phone business offloaded to Microsoft, which will continue to push Windows Phones under the Lumia brand. While many thought the deal could mean the end of Nokia’s consumer business, the company surprised us all this past summer when it launched its first Android app, the shockingly innovative Z Launcher app that will finally public beta on Tuesday.

Where Nokia’s efforts with Android are concerned, however, that app was just the beginning. More →

Nokia Android Smartphone Flagship

The flagship Nokia Android phone of your dreams might actually launch soon

The flagship Nokia Android phone of your dreams might actually launch soon

Nokia decided many years ago not to make Android smartphones, disappointing many fans who would have loved to own a flagship Android handset made by Nokia. The company did come out with some entry-level Android devices of its own earlier this year, but they ran a forked version of Android and Microsoft soon discontinued them following its acquisition of Nokia’s phone business.

But Nokia, which is still interested in the mobile landscape despite selling its mobile division, may be working on a high-end Android handset of its own, Chinese publication MyDrivers has learned. More →

Nokia exec shows refreshing honesty, admits HERE Maps was ‘rushed’ and ‘went horribly wrong’

The rise and fall of the Nokia HERE Maps app on the iOS App Store was a strange, unfortunate story for the Finnish company. Nokia came out swinging with a well-received app, managed to beat Google to the iPhone, but then struggled to hold onto any momentum the app had after it launched as it immediately faded into obscurity. Nokia was certainly down, but it wasn’t out — new mapping apps from Nokia are coming to mobile devices soon. More →
