Nokia C7 + 2 Chinese Friends + 1 BMW Car = James Bond

Two Chinese friends use a Nokia C7 and use it to control a BMW!! Its real and not a April Fool prank. Good to see some innovation coming from outside Nokia, now that we wont be seeing it from within! Video after the break. Thanks to my friend Naveen for sharing this video on fb!

Nokia's Stocks take a Hit after Stephen Elops "Win Mo" Announcement

I have told yesterday here that this deal is a big mistake and sure it does seem so... Today as Stephen announces Nokia + Windows Mobile 7 deal, Nokia's shares are deep down almost 10%.

Its a sad day today as we see the open source platform loose to the closed platform - Windows Mobile 7.....

Nokia + Windows Mobile 7 (or) Android = Big FAIL

The recent news of a possible Nokia + WinMo 7 based partnership is very disturbing to me. This is not Nokia, its sooo Microsoft. Stephen Elop is burrying Nokia - That is all I have to say.

Sneak Peak: N8 Running PR 2.0

Hot news for N8 owners and symbian fans. A short video of the N8 running what is most likely a beta version of PR2.0. The video clearly shows the portrait QWERTY and the home screen swipe without the percieved delay. A Pic and video after the jump.

Ipad is here: I Hate Apple for how it is Treating India

I have expressed my feeling about Apples's view of Indian Market here. Now again this is a royal snub to the second largest Telecom market with more than 689 million users. Now when the world is looking forward to the ipad 2, Apple wants to dump its (soon to be old) ipad stocks in India. Is this fair? Now all the die-hard fans will throng the stores and get themselves an overpriced ipad. Let me make my point clear, I like their products but I dont like the way they are treating the Indian market, users(worldwide) and also developers in many cases. This is a serious issue and I think we Indians must take note of this. No other major company is doing like this, look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab - it came to India so early! Nokia releases its phones almost instantly but Apple - it is yet to release the iphone 4 in India when people elsewhere are waiting for iphone 5.... Whats your say??
