Microsoft Lumia ditches the Nokia brand

Nokia Smartphones are dead, long live Microsoft Lumia It makes a refreshing change to write about Microsoft, Lumia and Windows Phone because it gives us an excuse to scrutinise the latest developments in Redmond’s smartphone business. Understandably, the media pays more attention to Apple and Android these days, while Microsoft plays the underdog with its smartphones inherited from the Nokia acquisition earlier this year. With the Nokia […]

Fire Phone fails to spark interest

Millions of Fire Phones left unsold It was obvious that a smartphone marketed mainly on gimmicks would fail. The confirmation came in Amazon’s latest earnings call, in which it revealed revenue and profits missed the target while losses ballooned to a staggering $437 million. Lacklustre sales of Amazon’s flagship (and only) smartphone were partly to blame, as CFO Tom Szkutak said the company still […]

Apple SIM: bad news for mobile operators?

Apple SIM quietly introduced Anyone who saw last week’s Apple keynote (where the company predictably introduced new iPad, Retina iMac and Mac Mini models) probably missed the moment when Apple quietly introduced its carrier-neutral Apple SIM in cellular versions of the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3, in what could prove to be a disruptive move for the mobile industry. The Apple SIM […]

Has voice recognition come of age?

Voice recognition – has it come of age?

“Hey Siri, wake me up at 7 a.m.”…that’s about all I use Apple’s Siri for at the moment, short of asking what song is currently playing (which always amazes me). It’s not that voice recognition on the iPhone is bad – most of the time it provides reliable and accurate information (when I’m in the UK; but abroad it’s another […]

Apple announces new iPads and Macs

“It’s been way too long” Apple held its October special event yesterday to introduce its line of new iPads and Macs and as usual, it was a more low-key affair than last month’s iPhone 6 launch. Teasing us with the mysterious strap line “it’s been way too long”, there was intense speculation that besides the expected […]

Getting nothing done quickly with mobile data

Sometimes I really do despair with the state of the mobile experience here in the UK. This evening I’ve been in Swindon and then in and out of London. Something must be going on with all the networks. Or maybe I got out of the wrong side of bed and ended up carrying around a […]
