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 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...

ZTE Nubia W5 with Windows Phone 8.1 revealed

Like we told you last year, ZTE is getting ready to re-enter the Windows Phone world in 2014. Following a few less than successful offerings in 2012, the Chinese company will release at least one Windows Phone this year. And that may be called Nubia W5. Yes, it looks like ZTE will use its Nubia premium brand for its first Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone. So far, we’ve only seen Android-powered Nubia-branded wares, but that’s...

LG Uni8 Windows Phone and blue HTC One M8 shown in leaked press renders

LG has been missing from the Windows Phone world for four years, believe it or not. The company’s first and only efforts in the Windows Phone space were the Optimus 7 and the Quantum for AT&T, both released in 2010. Since then, nothing. LG has focused exclusively on Android for its mobile wares. But all of that may be set to change this year. Below you can see what purportedly is a leaked press render of the upcoming LG...

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...

Samsung’s first Windows Phone 8.1 handset will be the Ativ Core

A couple of days ago Microsoft officially introduced Windows Phone 8.1, the latest version of its mobile operating system. At the same event, Nokia unveiled its first smartphones running that variation of the OS, namely the Lumia 930 and the Lumia 630/635. Today, Verizon has started taking pre-orders for the Samsung Ativ SE, though that handset still runs Windows Phone 8, because the newest software wasn’t available in time for...

Samsung Ativ SE quietly gets official, Verizon starts pre-orders

The much-leaked Samsung Ativ SE has finally become official today. Sure, we might not have gotten a press release or anything like that, but Verizon has already started taking pre-orders for the Windows Phone-powered device. The Ativ SE is Samsung’s first Windows Phone in a very long while. It comes with a 5-inch 1080p Full HD Super AMOLED touchscreen, a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 2 MP front camera, a 2.3 GHz quad-core...
