OK, this is really ridiculous. Maybe it’s just me but every time I go to a T-Mobile store and ask to see a sample Nokia Lumia phone, it always seems like I’m asking for something strange. Four times now I have gone to a T-Mobile store and it’s taken an average of 10 minutes for them to FIND their sample...

OK so enough is enough. I have been waiting to hear exactly how many Nokia Lumia phones were sold in the United States of America since the rollout. I have heard lots of positive noise about how well the Lumia is selling and the latest number being floated is 1 million for Q1 2012. Nokia‘s (NOK) “Lumia 900,”...

AT&T Inc. and Verizon Wireless are cozying up to Microsoft Corp. and Nokia facing concerns that Apple Inc. and Google Inc. have too tight a grip on the market for smartphone software. Both carriers praised Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system, which runs the new Nokia Lumia phone when they reported...

You can actually get grey hair prematurely when you try and cover Microsoft strategy. It’s a roller coaster of ups and down (like the Mitt Romney campaign) and every time you think there’s good news, they provide a counterweight to depress you.

Kelly Ripa effectively plugged the Nokia Lumia 710 on her show the other day and I thought it was a great touch. Nicely...

Holy cow! I read this and almost fell off my chair. According to Google’s Senior Vice President of Mobile, Andy Rubin, Android device activations are now at 850,000 per day. Almost 1 million phones a day coming online with the Android OS. That is an IMPRESSIVE number and will be hard to beat with the...
