Nokia Lumia 920 Shuts Samsung Galaxy S4 Up- The Shutter Stabilization Story Leaves Samsung High But Dry

I have been waiting to announce my grand buy this year. No, I do not mean the Samsung Grand. I have the Samsung Galaxy S4 in mind. Before I go gaga over its sexy physique, too-die-for features, its beamer of a display—I am a tad let down with its shutter lacking stability. While admitting that I love the shutter’s 13-MP tag that brings my clicks to life, shaky hands at times do mar my mod. But why could the Galaxy S4 not have an optical image stabilizer? In a lance war with the Nokia Lumia 920, my buy bows down just because of its shutter story.

While shelling a decently lump bill [+more]

Nokia’s Gamble With Windows 8 Phone Pays Off: Lumia Models Catapults The Leader Back Into Game

Looks like Nokia’s gamble with Windows Phone is finally beginning to pay off. After consecutive quarters of disappointing results, the former world leader in mobile phones managed to jump up out of red during Q4 2012.

What comes as more good news for the company is that its overall sales volume in the North American market also saw an increase of 40 percent year-to-year, to 700,000 during Q4 2012. Q2 and Q3 saw Nokia selling 600,000 and 300,000 respectively. While the U.S. sales are yet to register a dramatic increase, looks like Nokia’s slow and steady approach is definitely [+more]

Nokia Lumia 920 vs iPhone5 : The Map App War

Apple got lot of criticism for its new Maps app in iOS 6, and rival Nokia roped in to take full advantage of the situation.
