Re: Skype call slow and with spikes, poor quality

It is rather Wow given that on my newer Pureview 808 I cannot sign in anymore.

Re: Get Microsoft to release the goddamn files

Did they buy it or was it just baggage that came with the bits of Nokia that they bought? ;)

Re: Nokia’s Return To The Smartphone Market: Officially Confirmed

The above is the only stuff that's needed, the rest that you listed are unnecessary distractions (and indeed Nokia had already attempted some of them in the form of the short-lived Ovi)

Re: Should I buy a tablet?

Apparently that depends on where you're ordering from, I just checked and there's no "No Windows" option for me. The only thing I can customise is which of the expensive extended warranty packages...

Re: Nokia HERE works great on Jolla!

Re: [Announce] MihPhoto a photo viewer

Wouldn't that be more difficult to implement than sliding along the edges of the screen? Sliding along the edges should be pretty easy to detect and program, besides swirling looks silly :)

Re: Canonical announces Ubuntu for smartphones, we go hands-on

A proper desktop mode, ie one that can run full desktop programs as-is would be, for me, the holy grail of mobile devices. And frankly that would be the only reason to buy an "ubuntu" phone,...

Re: Awesome and Classic Nokia Phones!

I don't know about Samsung, but Nokia went for "differentiation", so each year they released a bunch of phones which was differentiated by which features were missing. So instead of releasing 2-3...

Re: Should I buy a tablet?

For me, one thing a tablet has a decisive advantage over a bog standard laptop is (as you've already noted) the reading of PDFs, and also other ebooks, comics and similar stuff in portrait mode. Sure...

Re: new here just bought a nokia n900 in 2015

Blackberry seems to be the only manufacturer who still sell qwerty phones "worldwide". Other manufacturers have carrier specific models for the US market now and again.

It's sad how modern smartphone designs have converged to become featureless phones.

Re: A Nokia 1100 with quad-core CPU and Lollipop spotted online

Some years ago I was helping a friend setup his new HP printer, when I got to installing the "drivers" I was shocked to see that it wants 300-400MB free disk space - I said to my friend WTF!?!

Re: A Nokia 1100 with quad-core CPU and Lollipop spotted online

Last century I was using a 1024x768 screen on a 64MB notebook, had a full KDE 3.x desktop running on it. And it even managed to run Eclipse. 512MB is a luxury ;)

Re: [Announce] AutoDisconnect - Automatically disconnect idle connections

Probably, and the solution is to not have it search for connections every 10 mins :rolleyes:

Re: Jolla vs Blackberry 10 (running android apps)

Does either BB or Jolla have user control over the permissions that android apps can use? Eg prevent access to: network, phone info, contacts, gps etc?

Re: Anyone tried 128 GB Micro SD XC cards?

So they've hit some physical limit now ... I would've expected a 256GB as the next step up from 128GB.
