When talking about operating system of mobile phone, MacOS, Android, Symbian and Windows 7 always head on the list. However, new comers’ power also cannot be neglected. Mango, MIUI, Ali Cloud get its own fans shortly. Of course, I will not and don’t need to do to say whether it is good or not as sales data show everything.

Nokia’s fairly slow pace on the development of Windows Phone denies this Finnish firm a laurel to bring out the first Window Phone Mango, and apparently the phone division of Fujitsu and Toshiba makes the situation to their advantage by launching a Mango smartphone ahead of Nokia. This much-anticipated first Windows Phone Mango, Fujitsu Toshiba IS12T, seems to tout a well-constructed waterproof body, a Qualcomm MSM8655 processor, a 3.7-inch WVGA touchscreen and an impressive 13.2MP camera with autofocus.
It is also reported that IS12T will exclusively go on the second largest carrier of Japan, KDDI. Though there is still no word on the exact announcing or launch date of IS12T, things are sure that … Continue
The craze of most folks for social network seems to kindle phone makers’ passion for full QWERTY keyboard phones and brands like Sony Ericsson and Moto have already unveiled several full QWERTY keyboard models to cater the mass’ taste.

The over-exposing Nokia N9 simply rouses our intensive interest in its Meego-based sibling, Nokia N950, a model which is only offered to those developers and sees no possibility to meet the masses. But still, chances are that quite a lot folks are eager to know what the dissimilarities are between Nokia’s top smartphones of Meego platform this year except the conspicuous different design: the unibody N9 and slide-out N950.
Compared with the gorgeous-looking N9 painted with bright color, Nokia N950 appears more suitable for business use due to its sober black color and aluminum case. In spite of the slide-out keyboard, no physical button is spotted below the touchscreen, which will bring the same touch experience as N9. … Continue
It looks like that Nokia folks are working in full gear on the ten Symbian-based phones that it has stated previously, and the continually leaked models are the best proof. Shortly after the coy appearance of the four Symbian sisters, Zeta (the other three siblings dubbed respectively as Cindy, Fate and Helen) pops out first with the spy shots.
Though with a fairly figure of 10mm in thickness, Zeta can hardly be crowned as the rumored thinnest smartphone, but might be the slimmest one among Nokia’s Symbian series. As a latent successor of Nokia C6-01, Zeta, based on Symbian Belle, is also packed with a 3.2 nHD resolution AMOLED touchscreen but with a little humbler included camera … Continue
When it comes to the Nokia in recent days, our attention may be drawn on Nokia N9 or Nokia N950, the two awesome Meego-based smartphones that Nokia revealed in high profile just a couple of days ago, but we will also be interested in those unannounced. The rumored spy shots of Nokia N5, purportedly powered by updated Symbian Anna, tend to get off the wrap of this mystified device.
The popping-out of Nokia N5, a Symbian-based handset, seems to smash the rumor that Nokia N8 is the last phone of Nokia to run Symbian, but the modestly-specced N5 sees little hope to make a stir among a whopping impressive mobile phones stuck in the market. Based on the … Continue
The recent oft-exposed and worth-awaited Nokia-branded new devices now have all made their official debut on Nokia Connection 2011 taking place at the grand Marina Bay in Singapore. It seems too obvious that the much-anticipated Nokia N9 attracts most of the attention, a crucial offering presumably capable of dragging Nokia out of the current downturn. Well, Nokia N9, based on Meego operating system, is bestowed with snappy design and sound innards. The specs consisting majorly of a 1GHz OMAP330 processor, a PowerVR SGX530 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB or 64GB of internal storage and an 8MP camera make Nokia N9 feel no shy in front of most of current dominating high-end smartphones.
What accompany this giant star are three … Continue

It might be your knowledge that Samsung announced a phone codenamed as Samsung Ch@t 322 at the end of last year, feature with dual SIM and social network chatting.

While our major focus falls on Nokia’s forthcoming Windows-based smartphones to be announced soon on Nokia Connection this year, we might as well distract a smattering attention to some other Nokia-branded phones which loom around in rather low profile. Now recently Nokia revealed a new low-end phone codenamed as C2-06.
This is not the first time that Nokia C2-06 appears in our sight. But the leaked images this time offers us a good chance to see what Nokia has in sleeve for its low-end devices. Much like its siblings Nokia X1-01 and C2-00, C2-06 offers two SIM card slots and sports both touchscreen and T9 keyboard operations. The sliding design of C2-06 makes it look cute and chic. … Continue
