Calling the N93i an "upgrade" over the N93 might actually be a bit heavy handed. Though the monster clamshell gains S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 on its predecessor and shaves a solid 3.2 millimeters of thickness, virtually every other change is more of a sidegrade than anything else. The keypad d...

Nokia has taken its Nseries line of smartphones in a decidedly more fashionable direction than it's used to going, announcing the 13.7 millimeter thick N76 clamshell this week. Specs aren't quite up to snuff with Nokia's latest and greatest, but hey, they're not bad either: QVGA display, 20MB of in...

Nokia's business-friendly (but not necessarily uptight) Eseries has yet to pay host to a slider, which is kinda strange considering the overwhelming goodness of the N80 and the soon-to-be-goodness of the N95. No worries -- Finland's favorite phone company looks ready to right its wrongs with the 16...

Even as it celebrates its one-year anniversary in public circulation, Nokia's N80 keeps on scrapping with the best smartphones the world has to offer. After all, S60 3rd Edition is still fresher than anything Microsoft or ACCESS has to offer, the 3 megapixel camera is well above and beyond the stan...

In the most official confirmation we've seen to date, the alleged Nokia N93i has hit the FCC (true, the pictures appear to identify it as an "N00," but we somehow doubt that's its go-to-market model number). All told, the device appears to be a fairly modest upgrade to the N93 it replaces, bearing...

Sorry, SavaJe fans -- if you call Vodafone home, it looks like you're out of luck. Hoping to reduce integration, development, and support costs and speed up time to market, Vodafone has announced plans to purge their lineup of anything that doesn't run on Windows Mobile, Series 60, or Linux. The str...

So, this actually went down a couple days ago, and we've been sitting here trying to process all the information ever since. The idea of any carrier -- let alone a non-Japanese one -- announcing thirty-one handsets in one fell swoop simply boggles our mortal minds. We take it so seriously, in fact,...

Nokia gets the lion's share of the attention when it comes to the S60 platform and Symbian generally -- perhaps rightfully so, considering they ship far more Symbian-based smartphones than any other vendor -- but Samsung would like to politely remind everyone that they're an S60 licensee, too. Thei...

We're not getting played for a fool again until we actually have a real, actual device resting comfortably in our hands, but Nokia's promising to bring the 3G love to the US for reals this time with its new N75 clamshell, announced today as part of its Nseries onslaught. The S60 3rd Edition handset...

A Finnish fellow named Arto Holopainen on the Nokia forums has just come up with a way to control your cellphone without touching the phone -- that is, controlling it via Bluetooth-enabled EMG monitoring devices hooked up to your biceps. Holopainen took a Series 60 (or 80) phone, a small battery-op...
