    @twelveways Hmm, it shouldn't overheat during music playback - at least, my 920 doesn't. It gets roasting during games though! Have you tried a restart?

    Do you have a 925? How are you finding the camera?

    I don't use it for music much but I was listening to digital radio the other day and it was definitely quite a bit warmer. Games really heat it up though as you say.

    The camera is nice and photos look great on the screen. I like the smartcam app that comes with it, I'm rubbish at taking pics but I think in the right hands you could get some awesome action shots.

    I do find that the 'buttons' are a little close to to the screen and I occasionally press the search button whilst I'm playing games.

    but I do have fingers like sausages so it may not affect everyone.

    Ah right, that'll be the streaming then - was it over data or wifi? I'm always playing locally-stored music.

    I'm still waiting on the Amber update for the new camera stuff. I'm eager to give it a crack though.

    Yeah, I think that's just something you eventually get used to - I used to do it a lot back on WP7, but I can't remember the last time it happened now. A helpful tip: if you catch yourself tapping the capacitive keys, 'holding' it will cancel the action.

    6" Nokia 'Phablet' incoming. Codename 'Bandit'. Rumoured to have a quad core snapdragon processor, 21mp camera and a 1080p screen. Allegedly out in the states by the end if the year, although knowing Nokia, probably end of next year. Colour me interested.

    Well, so long Nokia.

    Interesting that Microsoft only gets Lumia and Asha names, not Nokia. A good thing at least.

    Still sucks, hope they don't cancel the throwaway back up phones like the 100.

    Mission completed by Elop.

    Hope they still keep the jobs in Finland.

    Microsoft Lumia, eww. Might have a brand replacement for their Surface catastrophe.

    The jobs are staying in Finland... though there will likely be considerably fewer of them.

    Yeah, I got distracted a few times. It doesn't read well.

    It would be a shame if quality went down the toilet. Have been very pleased with Nokia quality over the years.

    Now that the lead hardware designer quit I can't help but wonder what will happen.

    Maybe they just hire a better one.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Kickstand aside this seems to outdo the Surface 2.

    http://www.theverge.com/2013/10/22/4862952/nokia-lumia-2520-windows-tablet-hands-on-photos-video



    Lumia 2520 Specs:

    Here are the rest of the specs for Nokia’s first Windows 8 tablet.
    •Windows RT 8.1
    •10.1” full 1080p HD AH-IPS, High Brightness with Low Reflectance, Gorilla Glass 2
    •6.7MP Auto Focus ZEISS optics, Secondary: 2MP HD wide-angle
    •Video 1080p@60fps
    •4G LTE
    •Nokia Music for unlimited streaming of ad-free music
    •Free global HERE Maps
    •Microsoft Office built-in
    •Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (2.2GHz Quad Core)
    •8000 mAh (integrated)
    •Red, White (glossy), Cyan, Black (matte)
    •Price: USD 499

    Nokia doing it right again, pretty great deal with 4G. I hope Microsoft doesn't fuck them over. Pity they still need more apps for RT. iPad with LTE is over $700.

    They announced some new phones as well. 1320 and 1520.

    Fuck Nokia. They're ceasing the Nokia Store, meaning I'm not going to be able to get app updates any more :-(

    I assumed it would be business as usual. Doesn't seem to be the case.

    I had a fair bit of brand loyalty towards Nokia, it was my first mobile. (The philips c12 is stricken from my memory!)

    Just always liked the build quality and the design. Looked like a lot of love went into their phones.

    Until just after the N95. The N97 + N96 were turds.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    Neat feature.

    Nokia Refocus

    Two giant phones.

    Lumia 1520

    Lumia 1320, the more budget version

    Rather massive. I thought the 1020 was big.

    The Lumia 2520’s battery is capable of such feats as playing video for ten hours non-stop without a charge. The battery also offers a quick start with its ultra-fast charging time. It can go from zero to 80 per-cent charged in an hour.

    Alongside the Nokia Lumia 2520, we’re releasing the Nokia Power Keyboard, a natural companion for the new device. It offers a keyboard with a touchpad, of course, but also wraps right round the tablet to offer complete protection without needing a separate case. The Power Keyboard also contains an extra battery for up to five hours extra use, plus two USB ports, for whatever other accessories you wish to attach.

    Looking at this article on The Verge made me feel nostalgic and admittedly a little bit sad:

    A look back at iconic Nokia phones

    ... feels nice to say that my first mobile phone was a Nokia 3310.

    3310 was my first too!

    Nokia have always made quality phones and they were never afraid to push boundaries. They led the pack for a long time but when someone else took the lead they were too slow to follow. My missus was well happy with her Symbian phone, until she saw my Android one.

    What a fantastic find, CSC. I see my first and last Nokia phone in there. And a few others I had. And some I wanted, but could never get because O2 didn't offer them. What a difference 14 years makes.
