Yes! You read the title of this topic right. The freshman class of 2016 at Seton Hall University are getting free Nokia Lumia 900. Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey decided to give away free Nokia Lumia 900 to all the freshman joining this fall. Seton Hall has partnered up with Microsoft, Nokia and AT&T to provide a custom version of Nokia Lumia 900.
Last month Nokia released their two handsets Nokia 110 and Nokia 112 from Pakistan for the first time. It was a global launch from Pakistan of any mobile manufacturer, and I believe Nokia broke the ice by realizing the huge potential and market of Nokia in Pakistan. Nokia 110 and Nokia 112 are the two low-end dual SIM phones but with quite a lot of features .
From the start of this year, Huawei started taking things seriously about Android smartphones market. Initially Huawei had been on the backend and provided major infrastructure for the mobile and telecom networks around the world. Today I got my hands on their new mid-range handset Huawei Ascend Y 200.
As you all are aware today Nokia is launching some new handsets globally and the launch event is for the first time setup in the city of Karachi of Pakistan. I am sitting in my room and outside my window I can see all the preparations going on for the event. The launch event look big and a limited number of media and technology specialists are invited for the launch. Not only the bloggers and media from Pakistan but across the world would be present at the event. I will be tweeting and giving live coverage of the event on the blog, so stay tuned here.

Huawei came in late, but striking the world with a pat on their back they told everyone that you have done enough now let us show you what a smartphone is. Huawei started manufacturing low end mobile phones initially and slowly came into action with the middle-end and high-end smartphones. Their main focus is towards Android operating system which is surely going to give them a boost in this field. I managed to get my hands on Huawei Ascend P1 which is a high-end smartphone and world’s slimmest so far.
Finally we have a digital camera which also has a phone in it. Yes, its the new Nokia 808 PureView announced today at World Mobile Conference (WMC) 2012. Nokia 808 PureView has a 41 megapixel camera (38megapixel effective). Everyone is talking about the camera so I decided to dig deep into the news to get the sample photos taken from that camera and videos made from Nokia 808 PureView. See the sample photos and videos of Nokia PureView here:
Nokia today on World Mobile Conference 2012 announced an amazing new smartphone. The only thing that you have to hear about this phone is “41 megapixel camera“. Yes, this is Nokia 808 PureView. To-date we only have 8megapixel cameras rolling out the market with the smartphones, and just couple of them got 16 megapixel. Nokia just got the break through from all the phone manufacturers and introduced the biggest megapixel camera sensor in a phone ever.
Just one word and that is “Awesome”. A 1.5 GHz dual core processor with 4.3 inches huge screen and when it comes to audio, yes you got to feel the bass. HTC this time introduced a phone with high end processor to co-op up with the upcoming trend of smartphone users plus keeping the music lovers in mind. HTC Sensation XE has Beats Audio by Dr. Dre with special custom made earphones for this handset.
Huawei came into the mobile and smartphone manufacturing industry just few years ago and within just these few years have proved that they can deliver what people actually want. Huawei‘s target market in starting from Asia is now getting stronger day by day in the west too. Huawei introduced the low-end affordable Android handsets so that everyone can experience the technology. Later in their next milestone came the high-end smartphone called “Huawei Honor / U8860″ also known as “Huawei Glory” which genuinely changed all the perspective of users towards Huawei and people are considering Huawei Technologies as a major smartphone manufacturer now. I reviewed the handset personally and believe it or not, my user experience with Huawei Honor was extremely pleasing.
In my earlier article about the Hands on: HTC Radar I mentioned few things about the handset. Windows Phone 7.5 is now out of the beta phase and getting quite mature slowly. There are still some things which are left to manage in WP7.5 and I’m very hopeful that they will all be fixed in the upcoming Windows Phone 8. I managed to take some photos of the body build comparison of HTC Radar and Applie iPhone 4 side by side. HTC Radar is almost the same in size as Apple iPhone 4/4S
