Nokia Reviews, Rumors and Upcoming News

Goodbye Nokia: Microsoft axes branding
By Luke Jones on Friday October 24, 2014

Say goodbye to Nokia smartphones, for now at least. Microsoft has killed off the Nokia branding for future smartphones the company confirmed today, ending months of rumors. Instead of the Nokia Lumia branding, devices will now be known as Microsoft Lumia and will come with the company's Windows logo emblazoned on them in black.

Nokia HERE Maps lands on Android
By Luke Jones on Tuesday October 21, 2014

Just recently Nokia launched its HERE Maps service for select Samsung Galaxy devices through Samsung's own app service. Now the Finnish company is going a step further and has rolled out HERE Maps for the wider Android community. The app is not yet available on the Google Play Store but it should land in the near future.

Five Year Predictions: Nokia
By admin on Monday October 13, 2014

We are introducing a new series today in the form of Five Year Predictions. Each week we will take a look at a major brand in the mobile space and will see where the company is now, what its short term future looks like, and finally where we think the brand will be in five year's time. We cannot please everyone and get everything right, but we hope this series will give more of an insight into the plans of companies as we enter the next phase of mobile technology. Kicking it all off is Nokia.

Microsoft to ditch Nokia branding
By Luke Jones on Wednesday September 10, 2014

Microsoft's recent history with Nokia has been a fruitful one; it helped to put Windows Phone on the map and Nokia had such success on the platform that Microsoft bought the Finnish company's devices division. Since then Redmond has been churning out its own smartphones with the Nokia Lumia branding, but it seems Microsoft is now willing to let go of Nokia altogether.

Nokia updates Z Launcher
By Luke Jones on Saturday August 30, 2014

Nokia actually no longer making hardware is not an easy thing to take, after-all, this was the company that dominated the mobile scene for years and was one of its leading lights in the early years. However, Nokia sold its devices division to Microsoft earlier in the year and is now focusing on its services and software.

What Windows device to get instead of the HTC One M8
By Luke Jones on Saturday August 23, 2014

We are the first here at MobileBurn to admit that the HTC One M8 has immediately become the best handset on the Windows Phone platform. The Taiwanese company's all metal device sports better specs than any other WP handset and arguably looks better too. However, we have been thinking that the stellar job that Nokia has done over the last couple of years has been drastically undercooked this week.

Lumia 520 gets Windows 8.1 and Cyan update
By Luke Jones on Monday August 18, 2014

The Nokia Lumia 520 has finally been treated to the latest version of Windows Phone, version 8.1 with Nokia's Cyan software on board. That is a fitting addition considering the 520 has done as much for Microsoft's (admittedly slow) mobile growth as any other smartphone.

Microsoft sticks with Android for new Nokia X2 affordable phone
By Andrew Kameka on Tuesday June 24, 2014

It made sense for Nokia to launch the X Android smartphones as a way to gain traction in the lower-tier market, but it was widely expected that Microsoft would abandon the venture once it assumed control of Nokia. That's no longer the case as Microsoft today launched the Nokia X2, a more powerful but still cheap smartphone, and it's still running Android.

Nokia Z Launcher show promise for the company
By Luke Jones on Friday June 20, 2014

In case you missed the memo, Nokia is no longer in the mobile phone making business since the company sold its devices and services division to Microsoft. Nokia cannot make a device until 2016, but it appears to be killing time with a new Android launcher.

Nokia links 50 Lumia 1020's for unique 'Arc of Wonder' video
By Andrew Kameka on Wednesday May 21, 2014

I have a Nokia Lumia 1020. If I had 49 more at my disposal and hours of times to carry them around the city, I still wouldn't have come up with the idea for the Living Moments - Lumia Arc of Wonder, a short video created by filmmaker Paul Trillo.
