Leak: Nokia Sea Ray With WP7 (Video)

Nokia’s first Windows Phone 7 device is probably music to many Symbian users who have long carried the burden of trying to use their phone in the first month of owning it. Symbian, of course, is Nokia’s operating system, that they’ve been using for the past decade + years, and it’s a royal headache.

Simple things like turning off the WiFi, takes many clicks here and taps there and it’s probably the farthest thing from being intuitive.

Microsoft Working On Secure Messaging & UI For WP7

It looks like Microsoft is up to no good in that they are working on a ‘top secret’ Windows Phone project, or at least that’s what the job listing says on its website.

It seems as if the project would be a version-one design with initial planning set to undergo in a month. The interface will be targeted to those user-friendly consumers and Windows may spend more time on making messaging more secure.

Microsoft Gives Green Light To Hack Your Windows Phone

Microsoft has traditionally not been too friendly with people messing around with its products but they have recently changed their position, at least when it comes to their mobile phones. Microsoft has given its users the “all okay” when it comes to loading Mango on Windows Mobile devices, but warned that doing so would void the warranty.

This is great news for people who still have Windows Mobile phones. Although Windows Mobile looks nice, it’s prone to freezing and glitching and causes its consumers a royal nightmare. Getting the green light to port directly to Mango may be the end of frustrations for many.

Nokia Takes Down Apple In Patent Case

Nokia has announced today that Apple has agreed to pay them a one-time settlement and continuous license fees for Nokia-owned patents, which ends a long-standing battle that Apple had started back in 2009. Both companies have also agreed to retract prior complains from the U.S. International Trade Commission.

The CEO of Nokia stated, “We are very pleased to have Apple join the growing number of Nokia licenses…This settlement demonstrates Nokia’s industry leading patent portfolio and enables us to focus on further licensing opportunities in the mobile communications market.”

Microsoft Planning To Acquire Nokia For 19 Billion?

Reports have begun to spring up, suggesting that Microsoft might be getting ready to swallow Nokia for $19 billion. While Nokia has three main business groups: Mobile Phones, Smart Devices, and Markets. Mobile Phones would be the only one that would be taken over for the 19 billion.

This is an interesting bit of news when you consider that Nokia announced that a number of their phones will support Windows Phone 7, coupled with the fact of the mobile operating system, Symbian, being undesired for a large majority of mobile users.

BlackBerry OS 7: Leaked

Many consumers may have been waiting for the new BlackBerry Curve, codenamed Sedona or Apollo at the time, but for some reason RIM decided to pull back on the scheduled plans. Fortunately, a recent leak of the BlackBerry OS 7 for the Curve 9370 has just come to light, and comes packed with some tutorial videos.

As you can see from the videos, to mobile operating system seems to be as intuitive as ever, except carries a more modern twist than your conventional BlackBerry device. You’ll notice for one that this OS has a navigation bar rather than having the user cycle through rows and rows of applications.
