Video: Kelly Clarkson using Yellow Nokia Lumia 920 in latest hit Music video – colour amongst the black and white.

Posted: 28 May 2013 12:53 PM PDT

KELLY CLARKSON NOKIA LUMIA 920@KzudenO tweeted us that I’d like this video. I thought it was spam at first to make me click on a random video but noticed lots of Lumia things from their username.

The video turned out to be a brand new music video from Kelly Clarkson and woahMG, was I happy indeed to see my bright Pikachu Yellow Nokia Lumia 920 on the scene amongst the black and whiteness. It’s not there subtly, it stands out in the black and white scene.

I love how the story here is about bringing in colour and the colourful Nokia Lumia 920 is taking pride of place :D

Microsoft’s Infographic Breaks it Down, Why Low Light Images Matter

Posted: 28 May 2013 11:04 AM PDT



Microsoft posted the cute info graphic above on WindowsPhone.com detailing why we need proper lowlight photography in our lives. Pretty cool if you ask me, maybe this year we’ll have slightly less “bad 4th of July” pictures.

Rumor: Samsung to Implement OIS Technology in Galaxy Note 3

Posted: 28 May 2013 10:33 AM PDT

kevin-shields-600According to the latest rumors Samsung is once again copying others leads, this time by putting some OIS in the next Galaxy note. HTC have already attempted to reproduce Nokia’s lead in this field with some bitter-sweet results (although that might have been due to their insistence on using a 4 Mega Ultapixel camera).

According to a Samsung employee:

We are pondering various technologies at this stage – for example, OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and shutter functions. But, nothing has yet to be confirmed, so we cannot conclusively say that those functions will be added to the Galaxy Note 3.

What worries me more than Samsung actually being able to pull off a decent rendition of of the 920′s OIS, is the fact that it would be one less exclusive feature left in the most innovative smartphone in the world.


Thanks everyone who sent this in


Nokia Lumia 920 spotted on Penny Arcade comic strip

Posted: 28 May 2013 02:27 AM PDT

Screen Shot 2013-05-28 at 10.22.08An interesting spotting of a Nokia Lumia (either 800 or 920 – note LED placement, more likely the 920 due to being made in 2013). It’s in a Penny Arcade comic.

Note there’s some profanity.

SymbianApps: GoPro Browser for Symbian (GoPro Hero 3)

Posted: 28 May 2013 02:20 AM PDT

Screen Shot 2013-05-28 at 10.16.47Just came across this video showing the GoPro browser app for Symbian, which works with the GoPro Hero 2 and 3.

This allows you to access files from the GPH 2/3 directly from your S^3 (Anna/Belle) handset. You can download and preview items and video preview streaming (not sure you can do direct live streams from the device to use it as perhaps a surveillance camera but that’s not what GoPro is for).




Video: Nokia Lumia 920 – DIY paint job for dual shot colour

Posted: 28 May 2013 02:07 AM PDT

Screen Shot 2013-05-28 at 10.04.18Inspired by the dual colourings of the Nokia Lumia 620, the guy in this video modded his Nokia Lumia 920′s to have a similar effect.

I just loved watching the process of it all – it’s intriguing like a programme of ‘How it’s made’

My custom modification of a factory OEM Nokia Lumia 920 shell.

I just loved the Dual Shot design of the Lumia 620, so I improvised and created a dual shot for the Lumia 920 by using the Duplicolor Metalcast paints. These coloured paints are transparent, which creates the same Dual Shot effect of the Lumia 620.

I wanted an orange phone so I started with an OEM Nokia yellow shell and shot a very light application of Metalcast Red with a couple coats of clear. The result is a gorgeous orange dual shot finish.

I polished it off by wetsanding and using 3M polishing compounds.

Duplicolor Metalcast part numbers:
MC200 – Red Anodized
MC201 – Blue Anodized
MC202 – Yellow Anodized
MC203 – Green Anodized
MC204 – Purple Anodized
MC205 – Orange Anodized
MC206 – Smoke Anodized

3M Polishing part numbers:
Start with 05954 Medium Cut Rubbing Compound
Then 39002 Fine Cut Rubbing Compound
Finish it with 05990 Hand Glaze
