Tech Query : Asha vs Smartphone behemoths

Divya Narayan

India

Ques. I currently own a Nokia Asha 305, and I've been using it since last September/October. It serves my purpose completely, and is in perfect working condition. However, observing the rate at which newer models of mobile phones are being introduced in the market, I'm worried that my phone might get outdated sooner rather than later. Therefore, I would like to know your advice regarding upgrading my mobile phone. Should I rely completely on Nokia's software updates? Or, should I go for a brand new mobile phone altogether? If so, which one? My requirements from any mobile phone are - long battery life, durable handset, large external expandable memory, hassle-free internet surfing, and a good quality camera. 


Please note that I don't want to invest in a full-fledged smartphone as of now.

Meet the new Nokia Lumia625 – the big-screen hero with 4G internet



Nokia has officially confirmed the Lumia 625, a successor to the mid-range Windows Phone-based Lumia 620 that was announced in December last year.

Although no range-topper like the Lumia 1020 launched two weeks ago in New York, the 625 is not a complete slouch and includes highlight specs such as a 4.7-inch WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) display, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 512MB RAM and 8GB of onboard storage. There’s also a microSD slot for expanding that storage.

Nokia Lumia 720 review

The Lumia 720 is bang in the middle of Nokia's line of Windows Phone 8 offerings. Nokia's Lumia handsets are coming thick and fast. They all run on the Windows Phone 8 operating system and the 720 comes in the middle of the pack, with a midrange spec by Nokia standards, but attention to detail and a feast of add-ons nudges it closer to the high-end than many manufacturers.

Does the Nokia Lumia 720 deliver on its promise or does it end up being a confused offering? Let's find out.

Why you dont need Instagram for Nokia Lumia 1020

I read about the people who keep on complaining that they do want to switch to Lumia but they cant as it doesn't have the Instagram like the Android & Iphone. Well for these folks i would say that a year ago Instagarm was not there but still you folks adopted for android why?, here im not advocating the Lumia or windows but all i want to say is that having android and using Instagrm on it is like blind rage where most of the people don't know why they are doing it but still do because their friends are doing that, Ok we will discuss that some other time now we should come to the point as amid the rumors Nokia finally launched the Nokia Lumia 1020 with 41MP camera, well that was a comendable job. So for the people who say that instagram doesn't run on windows i will say actually Lumia 1020 doesn't need that.

Tech Query: What is the difference between a netbook and a notebook.

Dr. Aditya Manekar

India

Ques. What is the difference between a netbook and a notebook??

Ans : Well the answer to this question solely depends upon the user & his/her own perception of using & satisfying the computing needs. As talking in terms of developers then a workstation for them is a hardcore machine that works like a beast but for a normal bank guy it will be a system that will just run his banking software without any lags in it. So, coming to the point of netbooks vs notebooks we can say that netbooks are usually smaller then the notebooks considering the aspects like screen size & its resources(ram, processing power & all other stuff) which are smaller then the so called laptops but only thing is without any predefined criteria.  

Whatsapp goes from paid to freemium on iOS

WhatsApp, arguably the most popular cross-platform chatting solution, has just gone free on the App Store. We’re not sure whether the move is part of the upcoming iOS subscription switch or if there was a change of heart.
Either way, we’re not complaining. Previously a 99-cent download, WhatsApp for the iPhone and iPod touch is now provided free of charge (jump past the fold for the fine print).
