A new low-end Nokia (NOK +0.7%) Windows Phone will be unveiled at next week's Mobile World Congress to go with other cheap models (new Asha phones, perhaps?), "company sources" tell Reuters. The report comes shortly after Huawei launched its Ascend W1/4Afrika Windows Phone to take on Nokia's Lumia 510 and 620 in emerging markets, and Samsung launched its Rex touchscreen feature phone line. Both Samsung and Chinese vendors have seen sales of low-end Android phones take off.

    I'm glad to hear this somewhat however they probably need to spend a little time on Supply Chain Management to deal with their supply issues...

     

    innovation is great unless you can't bring it to the consumer.

    White on dark is hard to read. There's a reason why pretty much all major sites have simply black on white. Good luck with your site.

    Correction

     

    "Nokia today announced that Nokia Lumia smartphones will be used by select sales forces of The Coca-Cola Company in Vietnam and Cambodia."

     

    so like 1% of 1% will be using them lol not exactly stellar news but glad to see they are getting in the office buildings. People in my office seem to like my 920.

    RE: http://bit.ly/12YCiHL

     

    I'd be happy to say that the Lumia takes the best pics...but these examples show that the first pic is way under-exposed
    ie. loses colour and foreground details on the stage, while offering only moderately more details in the way-overlit window.

     

    In the second set, the colour balance is off around the window (green!) and the shutterspeed seems too low (blurry).
    Why exactly are you saying that the first pics of each set are the best ones ?!?
