Nokia is sending out invitations to an event this Thursday, January 21, indicating it will \"share some big ne

Bugs are to be expected in brand-new apps and platforms -- particularly when they're clearly marked with a \"beta\" sign -- but it starts to get a little hairier when there's money involved. One of the early crowd favorites in Nokia's Ovi Store for Maemo appears to be the game Angry Birds, which is av

Nokia has announced that it has started pushing the N900's very first post-launch update, but apparently it's not anything crazy like Maemo 6 (yeah, we know it's not even close to ready, but you know you want it) or system-wide portrait orientation support -- instead, it's just a minor bump designed

As revealed by Ralph de la Vega at AT&T's CES Developer Summit this morning (liveblog here) and singled out by CNET, Nokia's flailing and heretofore not-available-on-AT&T Ovi Store is finally available on Ma Bell, complete with direct billing. As of today, Nokia users can snag the usual ass

There's solid evidence from its success on other platforms that Skyhook's unique WiFi-based positioning system makes a big difference in GPS usability on handsets -- and if you're looking for it on your Nokia, your moment has arrived.

One of the purely theoretical benefits of an on-device app store is that you don't need to worry about archiving and managing apps you've bought in the past -- your download and purchase histories are magically managed up in the cloud, and if you need anything again in the future, it's there waitin

Just under two months. That's how long it took Nokia's N86 8MP to go from FCC to store shelves here in America, as the cats in Espoo have just announced to the world that the aforementioned cellphone is now shipping globally.

Where's the fail whale when you need it, right?
