Nokia Lumia 1520’s Snapdragon 800 processor confirmed by Qualcomm? [Update]

73

Did Qualcomm just confirm the Lumia 1520's new advanced chipset? [Updated below]

The upcoming 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520 is expected to be announced next month and released in the US for November. While many points about the device have already come forward, it’s still nice to get some seemingly solid confirmation on specifics.

In this case, the official Qualcomm Twitter account responded to a Mika B. regarding the brand new Snapdragon 800 chipset. Mika simply noted “See you in Lumia 1520 with superior 20 Mpx Camera” to which Qualcomm surprisingly replied “You are correct – and we’re proud to be a part of that awesome device.”

More details emerge on Nokia's "Mountain View" Android phone, which is still being manufactured by Foxconn

229

Some new details have emerged on Nokia's alleged "Plan B" to build an Android phone running on Lumia hardware, in case things went South with their Microsoft partnership.

According to CTechCN, a site with a pretty solid history of reporting leaks, Nokia's Beijing Research and Development team designed an Android-powered smartphone codenamed "Mountain View" that was manufactured by Foxconn and had progressed to later stages of testing.

Stephen Elop picks up $25.2 million as he leaves Nokia for Microsoft

90

Two and a half weeks ago Microsoft announced their intent to buy the devices and services division Nokia. At that time, Stephen Elop stepped down as CEO of Nokia to become the VP of the devices and services division. This would allow him to move to Microsoft when the deal completes sometime in early 2014. He’s also getting a hefty payout as part of the deal. How much?

Sonic 4 and Flux Family Secrets are the Windows Phone Red Stripe Deals

16

I wasn’t too thrilled with last week’s Xbox Red Stripe Deal, but this week’s sale title is a much more solid game. Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I is on sale for $1.99, down from $4.99. This marks the fourth time it’s been on sale, but the last time was back in November so a lot of Windows Phone newcomers probably missed it.

The non-Xbox Red Stripe Deals are pretty good too. The hidden object game Flux Family Secrets from Big Fish Games is on sale for 99 cents. If you like the genre, consider it a must-buy. And JDB Pocketware’s calendar/productivity app AppoinTile is 99 cents as well. Details and Store links after the break!

AT&T Nokia Lumia 925 Review

AT&T Nokia Lumia 925 Review

The Nokia Lumia 925 is a fantastic Windows Phone that is now available at AT&T. We've shared our first impressions and unboxing of the Lumia 925 late last week and now we take a little closer look at the latest AT&T and Nokia offering.

The AT&T Nokia Lumia 925 is almost identical to the unlocked version and the T-Mobile variant that we've covered previously. However, AT&T is only offering the Lumia 925 in black and it works with AT&T's LTE network.  The Lumia 925 has made a very good first impression and the more we use it, the more the Lumia 925 grows on us.

Is it strong enough to push us away from the Lumia 1020? What about the Lumia 920? Maybe.... just maybe.

Six-Guns Review: One huge, free Wild West game on Windows Phone 8

50

This week, the massive open world Grand Theft Auto 5 launched on consoles. Sadly, Rockstar has yet to port any of its excellent mobile Grand Theft Auto titles to Windows Phone. But thanks to Gameloft, we do have one open world game on Windows Phone 8: Six-Guns. Of course, Six-Guns takes its inspiration from the Wild West-themed Read Dead Redemption, but it’s still the closest thing to GTA in the mobile Xbox lineup.

Six-Guns is a free to play game – a payment model that can be a blessing or a curse. Is this one of Gameloft’s free to play successes like UNO & Friends or a greedy failure like Real Soccer 2013? Read on for our verdict…

Today was supposed to be a joyous day for Telstra customers, a day that they could pre-order the Nokia Lumia 1020 Windows phone. Sadly, however, Telstra has run into a software issue on their Lumia 1020s that is bad enough to postpone the release indefinitely, forcing Telstra to cancel all pre-orders for the Nokia flagship phone. Thankfully, the news isn't all bad. As a result of the cancelations, Telstra has generously shipped out free Nokia Lumia 520 smartphones to those who pre-ordered the Lumia 1020.

Analyst: Nokia likely to prevail over HTC in patent dispute over USB

88

Just over two weeks ago, Microsoft announced plans to buy the hardware and services division of Nokia. It’s the part of the company that actually makes all the hardware you’ve come to appreciate over the years. The remainder of Nokia will focus on three core businesses: location services (Here platform), Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN), and its advanced technologies division.

Nokia also keeps its patents portfolio, which Microsoft has licensed for 10 years. For others, they'll continue to need to pay royalties to use patents that Nokia owns and Nokia will continue to protect those patents. It’s happening right now in Germany. And according to one patent analyst, Nokia is closing in on one victory over a USB configuration patent against HTC.
