They say the darkest part of the night is right before the dawn of a new day. I think this is very true for Nokia today. Let me explain why I don`t think that Nokia is doomed.

They say that letting go is the hardest part in a relationship. When I recently replaced my Palm Pre with a Nokia N97 mini, I realized that this is very true. (more…)

Almost exactly two years ago, I attended my first Mobile Monday in Munich. One of the first things that struck me at the event was the ubiquitousness of Nokia phones. Nearly everybody was sporting either a Nokia E61 or Nokia N95 8GB. Two years later, the conversion to the iPhone is almost 100 percent done. Why? (more…)

I was rather unimpressed by the LG KP500 “Cookie”. So I didn`t have any high hopes when I got the Samsung S5230. I thought it would be just another inexpensive touchscreen phone. Boy I was wrong, very wrong. The S5230 turned out to be one of the very best and most definitely most surprising phones I have used recently. (more…)
