Nokia roadmap for 2014 and 2015 gets leaked

Several of Nokia’s plans regarding phone releases for the next few months have been leaked today. The company, now owned by Microsoft, will obviously continue to focus on Windows Phone devices. First off, it seems like the Lumia 930, announced in April, will not be making it to the US. It is in fact already sold by Verizon under a different name (Lumia Icon, that is), but it won’t be coming to other carriers. So Big Red...

Nokia Lumia 530 possibly pictured for the first time

Right now the Lumia 630 is Nokia’s lowest-end smartphone running Windows Phone 8.1, but that’s set to change pretty soon. The Finnish company now owned by Microsoft is apparently working on a successor to the best selling Lumia 520 from last year. This will unsurprisingly be called Lumia 530, and what you see below may actually be the first ever picture showing it, however pixelated. Like the Lumia 630, it appears to come...

Nokia X2 has its specs leaked

The Nokia X and its brethren may not have taken the mobile world by storm, but the Finnish company now owned by Microsoft seems intent on releasing a successor for its first ever Android device. Or at least someone at Nokia is busy testing prototypes for the X2. That’s because the Nokia X2 ran the AnTuTu benchmark recently, which means that we now get a look at its most important specs. A word of warning, though –...

Nokia Lumia 636 surfaces in China with TD-LTE support

Last month Nokia made the Lumia 630 and Lumia 635 official. Those two devices share all specs except for each one’s mobile network support. The Lumia 630 is 3G-only, while the Lumia 635 also comes with support for 4G LTE. But not, apparently, TD-LTE, which is the variation of the high-speed standard that China Mobile uses for its 4G network. China Mobile, as you may know, is the world’s biggest carrier when counting number...

Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, and Nokia Lumia Icon all now $99.99 with contract

From the moment the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8 launched, Verizon made them both available with a BOGO (Buy One, Get One for free) deal. Essentially you paid for one device ($199.99 with a new two-year contract), and actually got two smartphones. So if you needed a couple of handsets, and not just one, you were in fact paying half the price for each. That was certainly a good deal, especially because we don’t usually...

Nokia Lumia 930, Lumia 630, and Lumia 635 announced with Windows Phone 8.1

Today during Microsoft’s Build conference, Nokia announced three new Windows Phones. And yes, among those are both the much-leaked Lumia 630 as well as the Lumia 930, a handset that at one point was said not to be outed on this occasion. Alas, it was. All three devices run Windows Phone 8.1, the latest version of Microsoft’s mobile OS, which just got introduced today. The Nokia Lumia 930 is, as was rumored, basically an...

Nokia Lumia 930 may not get unveiled on April 2. First Windows Phone 8.1 devices out on April 23

A while back we heard that Nokia would announce two new Windows Phones during Microsoft’s Build conference, which takes place between April 2 and April 4. These were to be the Lumia 630 and the Lumia 930. In the meantime, Nokia itself teased an announcement at Build on April 2. Now though a conflicting report says only the Lumia 630 will be outed at that point, whereas the Lumia 930 will remain a mystery for a while longer. This...
