By now every single soul must have heard how awful Apple Maps is in iOS6. With thousands of complaints worldwide, this isn’t an area Apple is claiming to be proud of either. Nokia seems to have taken this opportunity and remind everyone, how good their Maps is, in the meantime.
Apple will start shipping the iPhone 5 on September 21st. For iPhone fans, the 5th avatar is arguably the best thing that has happened since the original iPhone itself. The first version was launched in 2007. It was a revolution then. Apple completely re-defined how a cellphone should work and showed the world what a cellphone should actually be. And then the others followed.
Nokia’s move to Windows Phone 7 had initially raised quite a few questions. However, with Lumia 800, the Finnish giant proved that it can work hand in hand with Microsoft (Windows Phone 7), and still keep its trust among the Symbian fans (well…sort of).
The Nokia Lumina 710 is coming to the US in January. Scheduled to begin its operations with T-Mobile on Jan. 11th, Lumina 710 will officially be the first Windows Phone 7-powered Nokia device.
What you see above is a leaked image of Nokia’s first Windows Phone 7-based smartphone. Any information on the configuration of the phone is unknown. However, we all have to agree that it does look like a lot like Nokia’s N9.
Well, this was kind of expected. Nokia has finally decided to team up with Microsoft. So expect to see some new Nokia smartphones powered by Windows Phone 7 soon. So I guess Symbian’s fate is now more or less sealed. This certainly helps Microsoft as well. Nokia being the world’s largest mobile phone maker can surely help Microsoft compete better.
