Nokia trolls the Samsung Galaxy S5

Besides the Nokia X, you don’t find much news on here related to Android. But we couldn’t pass up on this jab that Nokia made towards Samsung’s new flagship device – the Galaxy S5. The Galaxy S5 is Samsung’s newest model running Android 4.4.2 on a 2.5 GHz quad-core processor. It has a 5.1-inch display and a 1920 x 1080 resolution. It also has a fairly uninspiring design and is being lamented for not being too much better than the Galaxy S4, its predecessor. Which made it the perfect target for Nokia to take poke at. Check the image they tweeted out below.

Expect BBM for Windows Phone to feature modern UI design elements and come preloaded on (some) devices

94

Earlier today at Nokia's Mobile World Congress press event, Stephen Elop announced on stage that BBM will be coming to Lumia devices soon

BlackBerry followed up shortly after with their own announcement, clarifying that BBM will be coming to the larger manufacturer / brand base of Windows Phones as well as Nokia X devices, and that the rollout of BBM for Windows Phone would occur this summer.

Shortly after the announcements hit, I had the opportunity to sit down with BlackBerry's David Proulx, who is the Sr. Director of BBM Business Development, where I peppered him with questions, including a couple related to today's BBM on Windows Phone news.

Another Monday liveblog from Mobile World Congress is taking place and this time around,  Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to give a keynote address.  Zuckerberg is always an interesting one to catch as he's generally a fairly compelling speaker, so this should be good and if nothing else, at least interesting.

20

Late last year saw AT&T adding international LTE roaming in Canada and the UK, and today they're adding 13 more nations to the list.

AT&T put a full list of the countries where you'll be able to get LTE speeds while roaming starting today:
