Edward Snowden, the unwinding of Nokia and the post PC era were key themes for 2013.
Nokia's partnership with Microsoft for phones could easily extend into the Windows 8 hybrid market. Nokia has experience (albeit not very successfully) building a laptop.
If Microsoft's $2 billion loan to Dell plays out the same way its Nokia deal has, other PC makers may have less to fear than they initially might expect.
Microsoft has released mobile versions of its core Office products, Word, Excel and PowerPoint, for Symbian smartphone users.Although they are not yet in the Nokia Store, the apps became available for download via the Nokia software update tool and the PC-based Nokia Suite on Tuesday.
Some of you may have seen me tweeting recently about a little experiment that I have going on where I'm using a small PC (perhaps we can call it a netbook, but that's a semantics issue) — the Nokia Booklet 3G — as my primary computing device outside of the office. I am using the device with remote access from LogMeIn to replicate the screen of my work laptop which sits running, locked to my desk at Forrester.

Windows 7 was the big news of the week and James, Kevin, and I started off MobileTechRoundup show #186 talking about this latest Microsoft operating system. Hopefully James doesn't really go try to eat a Burger King Whopper 7 today. I talked a bit more about the Nokia N900 now that I have had this mobile Linux computer for almost 2 weeks. The other big news of the week was the Barnes & Noble Nook and James sounds like he is as excited as me, although I am the only one who placed a pre-order so far. Amazon didn't want to be left out of the ebook news and also announced Kindle for PC this week.
As I posted back in August I am not much of a fan of Nokia getting into the PC market with its Booklet 3G. I am sure it will be a rock solid piece of desirable hardware, but it will also be very expensive. Today, Engadget posted news from Nokia and AT&T that the Booklet 3G will come in at $299 with a 2-year contract and $60/month data plan. There should be shorter term higher prices being announced eventually, but for now they are trying to focus on the $299 price. Engadget stated that the non-subsidized price is going to be $599, which is actually lower than I thought it would be by a couple hundred dollars.

Handset manufacturer announces netbook weighing 1.25kg and just over 2cm thick, that includes many of the same features as its high-end smartphones.
Nokia announced on Monday that it is expanding beyond the cellphone and handheld computer market by launching its first notebook PC called the Nokia Booklet 3G. See why this little device could make an impact on the PC market.
The handset manufacturer has announced a netbook that includes many of the same features as its high-end smartphones
Nokia today announced the upcoming Booklet 3G Windows-based mini-notebook device that will debut with more details at Nokia World next week. What is Nokia doing entering the netbook market when it is flooded with competitors and their smartphone market share is falling every quarter? Let's get back to focusing on your base smartphone platform please.
I was reading through my feeds and stumbled upon the NokiaAddict.com site that stated there was a firmware update for the Nokia E71 available. I have the NAM (North American version) of the E71 and wasn't sure if the update was actually available since the European versions usually get the updates far earlier than the US version. I started and upgraded the Nokia Software Updater on my PC and was pleased to see there was an update available for my E71. The current firmware was shown as 100.07.76 and the new update is labeled as 200.21.118.
As regular readers know, I spend more time on my mobile phones than I do on a PC or notebook computer so being able to use my devices without connecting them to a computer is important to me. In the past, I have always had to make sure I had a Windows PC around to update my Windows Mobile or Nokia phones, but today that has changed. As presented on the All About Symbian website, Nokia now lets you download and update your device without ever connecting it to a PC. I followed the instructions for the Nokia N78 I am evaluating and even just connected via my T-Mobile EDGE connection.
As my interest is primarily in video chat / IM programs, I generally don't pay much attention to announcements of products without video. However, the announcement for "Nimbuzz" caught my eye, and sounded rather interesting, so I've downloaded it to my PC and my Nokia 6234, and given it a try.
I was given a trial account of Boingo Mobile to use with Nokia Nseries devices here at Mobile World Congress 2008 and it is a great way to get connected for only US$7.95 per month for unlimited worldwide access. Boingo announced that they have updated their clients to now run on Windows Mobile 6 and UIQ devices so now even more mobile users can enjoy low cost WiFi while on the road. I plan to download this latest client to the HTC Advantage and my T-Mobile Shadow to give it a try here at MWC. If you travel or live in one of the many thousands of areas covered by Boingo Mobile then I highly recommend you check them out as a good alternative for connectivity. FYI, the US$7.95 access is for access from a mobile device and is not the same plan as if you access the Boingo network from a PC (prices starting at US$21.95/month) as I found out at the Newark International Airport.
Nokia is to buy Trolltech, the company whose Linux-based Qt application-development framework is at the core of many PC and mobile applications including Google Earth and Skype.
James, Kevin, and I recorded MobileTechRoundup show #119 just before Christmas and talked about the HTC Touch Dual, usage of the HTC Advantage on the go, the WiBrain UMPC that Kevin is evaluating, the Dell Latitude Tablet PC, and the OS 2008 update for the Nokia N800. We had a couple pieces of freeware we talked about as well that you may want to try out. We'll have one more show before we try to record again at CES in Vegas in January so stay tuned for that final 2007 episode.
Earlier today, a free and downloadable Nokia PC Phone application was posted to the Nokia Beta Labs website.Appears to be a type of softphone.
I am on the road in D.C. and tried out the Plantronics .audio 480 Virtual Phone Booth to connect with James and Kevin for MobileTechRoundup show #113. It is a very portable solution for Skype and is much easier than packing around the Plantronics DSP-500 I usually record with. We talked a bit about the AT&T Tilt, Nokia N95-3, and a way to turn your camera phone into a webcam. James spent the money on an HP 2710p Tablet PC and is extremely happy with the device. Kevin read an email from Aaron and we each offered our opinion on a 3G iPhone. Earthcomber for S60 was also mentioned as a free download.
Skype has just released a beta version of Skype 2.7 for the Mac with Chat groups, Address Book integration and more. Downloading it now. I live in Skype – it's my office number and preferred IM and video chat environment. I also use Gizmo Project (especially on the Nokia N95 and N800) and a number of IM clients but the bulk of my contacts and friends are on Skype so that's where I look first. These enhancements will make it all the more useful and bring things more on a par with the capabilities I already enjoy when working on the Tablet PC.
