With Nokia's handset business now part of Microsoft, the Finnish phone maker is left to focus on its networking, mapping, location, and other technologies.

Nokia has reigned in camera phone technology over the years and the 808 PureView demonstrates the pinnacle of their imaging success. However, the camera is partnered with a dead OS that holds it back, especially with a price of $699 before tax and shipping.
The Nokia 808 PureView has the largest sensor in a smartphone available on the market today, but without operator support Nokia is unlikely to sell many. So why the uber-cameraphone even exist?
The cameras on phones just keep getting better and better and the great thing is that most of the higher end models compare well with each other too. Check through this gallery and see what photos you like best.
The Nokia Lumia 900 stole the show at CES this year and next we will see it hit the AT&T stores for just $100. You can actually find it for free from various online vendors and this gorgeous piece of hardware is sure to be a hot seller.
The Nokia N9 is a fantastic piece of hardware with a beautiful OS. Nokia tweaked the OS once with a nice update just after launch and is rolling out another update that adds several more functions and improvements.
Bill Detwiler cracks open the Nokia Lumia 800. Inside the Windows Phone 7.5 handset, he found hardware from Qualcomm, Hynix, Broadcom and others.
Nokia announced their first two Windows Phone devices at Nokia World last fall and now we are seeing the first model appear officially in the U.S. The Lumia 710 is a $50 smartphone, but is still a solid Windows Phone device.
The Nokia Lumia 800 is the first Nokia Windows Phone and it copies the Nokia N9 MeeGo device in terms of form factor, with just a couple minor differences. Is the Lumia 800 going to be the hit that Nokia and Microsoft need at this time?
At Nokia World, the phone maker showed off the centerpieces of what it hopes will be a road to Windows Phone-powered recovery, the higher-end Lumia 800 and lower-cost Lumia 710.
Cameras on today's smartphones are getting better all the time and in many cases people are leaving their point and shoot behind. I decided to test out some of the newest devices and put together an image gallery and video below from the HTC Amaze 4G, Apple iPhone 4S, Nokia N8 Symbian device, and Nokia N9 MeeGo device. There are other contenders, but these four are representative of the latest and greatest available today.
Nokia's first, and likely last, MeeGo powered device is now shipping outside the United States to select countries. The hardware is beautiful and the OS is powerful, but there may be very few people that get to experience such a good device.
Today Nokia announced three new Symbian devices with the Nokia 700, Nokia 701, and Nokia 600. They also revealed official details on the next OS update, Symbian Belle, that is loaded on these phones and coming to many existing smartphones later this year and in 2012.
Nokia introduces it's new Meego-powered N9 smartphone.
The Nokia N8 is the first Symbian^3 smartphone from Nokia and has high expectations. After the N97 failed to impress last year, Nokia hasn't had a great high end device since the Nokia N95. After spending three days with the N8, I think every Nokia and Symbian user will appreciate it as the best Nokia has produced and be satisfied. I am not sure many iOS or Android users will switch, but there are some compelling reasons to consider such a switch.
The Nokia N900 is now available from various US retailers and after two full months of using a loaner device I just purchased my own. This latest Linux-based device has a new version of the Maemo OS and integrates a cellular radio. You will find some aspects of S60 in the N900, along with a rather unique user interface and extremely powerful Mozilla-based web browser. Apps are still early in development, but with the browser you can do most everything you need to do with dedicated apps.
