Nokia Chargers Power Up

Posted by Nurhisham Hussein in "Nokia Windows Phones" @ 01:00 AM

"While it's been confirmed by Nokia already, the team over at WeLoveWP.hk have run some tests on charging the Lumia Windows Phone with a number of options. Turns out...the Nokia Lumia adapters provided more charge for a faster rate of recharge."

I'm not sure a "faster" charger is that much of an advantage, as bearing in mind my rudimentary knowledge of battery technology, fast charging like this tends to stress the battery more while also generating more heat. You might be trading off faster charging against a shorter battery lifespan. Of course, if you're in the habit of buying an extra battery or two, or changing phones every couple of years, that might not matter much. The nice thing though is that since the Lumia models will charge off a standard USB port, the decision is yours.

Nokia Battery Fault: Fix On The Way

Posted by Nurhisham Hussein in "Nokia Windows Phones" @ 06:00 PM

"...some of our customers started to comment in various social media that the preloaded diagnostics tool in some of the Nokia Lumia 800 phones was showing lower battery capacity than expected...The good news is that as this is a software problem it can be easily resolved. The planned software update in early 2012, as well as including many performance enhancements, will also include a fix that will enable the affected phones to access the total battery capacity."

It's not something that will affect many customers as yet, as the Lumia 800 hasn't been rolled out in some major markets (like the US). But if you're seeing this problem, helps on the way, though Nokia's vague on the timing. Just in case you're one of the affected, the problem isn't in the battery or the phone, but is a software fault that doesn't allow the phone to fully utilise it's existing battery capacity.

Designing Nokia's Lumia 800

They call it a documentary, but its more of an infomercial. Still it's a somewhat interesting look at the "inside story" behind the Lumia 800's design. Nokia has too much invested in the Microsoft partnership to hold back on any potential avenue for getting the word out.

Windows Blog Unboxes the Nokia Lumia 800

"When I was unboxing my Lumia 800, I found that the packaging is almost as beautiful as the phone itself..."

Ben Rudolph of the Windows Team Blog has received his Nokia Lumia 800 here in the States. He was kind enough to post a few unboxing shots of his new toy. Overall, the packaging seems to follows the new trend of minimalism and seems clean and neat. See Ben's post for a few more shots.

A Closer Look at the Nokia Lumia 800

As previously reported, the Nokia Lumia has been announced and it is a beautiful phone (in my opinion). The strength of the internals will no doubt be debated (as will the lack of a front-facing camera), but the marketing for the phone is already leagues better than the stuff put out by Microsoft. Take a look at the video above and let us know what you think, then hit up the Nokia Youtube page for more videos of the Lumia 800.
