Nokia Skipping CES 2013

We are now less than three weeks from CES 2013 and all the companies are putting their last minute touches on their presentations, all but one of the big names. Nokia has cancelled their CES appearance and will not be presenting any new devices. Nokia has now decided to focus its attention on another electronic show Mobile World Congress 2013 which is about one month after CES.

We all expected to see Nokia’s new line of Lumina devices this year at CES along with their new Pureview devices. However we will just have to wait until Mobile World Congress and see what surprises Nokia has in store for us. Hopefully the company has some new and exciting things that they are applying the finishing touches to and Nokia will add some new devices and improvements.

Microsoft Windows Phone 8 Features

Today Microsoft has officially launched their Windows Phone 8 OS and a list of new/enhanced features it has to offer. Joe Belfiore, Program Manager took the stage to detail the features.

With Windows Phone 8, there is a “new lock screen” which will refresh content, notifications and other tiles depending on which mobile apps are being used, such as Facebook. You can also change it into a photo slideshow; display sports scores, weather and more. It is a completely customizable experience.

Skype is now completely integrated into the OS, resulting in an always-on solution. You are able to receive calls or messages at anytime and it does it without running code in the background improving battery life.

If you love Pandora you are going to love the deal they have for you with Microsoft. Pandora users get the service ad free for the first year.

Another major addition is the Data Sense technology. Not only does Windows Phone 8 compress data to conserve expensive cellular data it also keeps track of usage in real time and alerts you to potential problems and apps chewing through your plan. Verizon users will be the first to get their hands on Data Sense feature.

The addition of Kid’s Corner, in directly allows for a makeshift multiuser environment. It allows you to set a restrictive environment to allow a friend or child limited access to your device. You can choose what apps or features the user can access.

The People Hub gets better as it has a new feature called Rooms. If you are a GroupMe user you maybe experiencing a little deja vu. Skype purchased GroupMe and Microsoft purchased Skype. With the list of technology buyouts Microsoft has deployed their own private chat area for family, friends and coworkers.

Microsoft has released a 19 minute video highlighting Windows Phone 8. If you have any interest in the OS we suggest you check it out below.

 

 

Nokia Jumps In “Line” With Samsung – Mocking Apple

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zjrv9-Botx8&feature=player_embedded

It’s always interesting to see manufactures attack Apple and this time instead of Samsung, Nokia is taking a bite out of the apple.

It is a simple attack that makes us wonder if Nokia believes smartphone technology is all about color. I for one like a neutral color device with a wide range of colorful accessories.

Nokia ends the ad with “This is Lumia”! The title of the ad is “Time to #switch”, take a look at the ad and let us know what you think.

 

Windows Phone 8 OS Video

Nokia and HTC have both announced their Windows Phone 8 and now we have a leaked video that walks us through Windows Phone 8 OS. This is 10 minutes, “Hands on with the finalized Windows Phone 8 emulator OS Build 9900”.
