Here's a bit of change on mobile phone history. Nokia has fallen from its throne as the top cell phone manufacturer in the world. Data compiled by both IHS iSuppli and Strategy Analytics, show that Samsung is now the top mobile phone maker in the planet.
It's not an insignificant achievement as Nokia was the world’s largest handset vendor for 14 years, a time period that spans from 1998 to 2011.
It appears that AT&T may not be the only US GSM carrier to offer the Lumia 900 Windows Phone.
A T-Mobile USA employee reportedly told Andrew Bares of WMPowerUsers that the carrier plans to offer the popular Windows Phone. The employee was said to have confidently stated that "Lumia 900 will be coming to T-Mobile this summer"
Rumors hinted that AT&T's Nokia Lumia 900 will be released on April 8th and the carrier's recent announcement confirmed the leaks. The Lumia 900 will bring along the HTC Titan II when it becomes available on the 8th of April. Both of these handsets were announced together at MWC so its seems fitting that they also enter the market on the same day.
AT&T might start selling a new Windows Phone with 4G LTE next month. Recent rumors indicate that the carrier will start selling the Nokia Lumia 900 online on the 8th of April.
New Windows Phones might soon be among the upcoming AT&T smartphones for 2012. Recent rumors indicate that the carrier intends to offer two new Nokia phones running on the Windows Phone operating system.
The Nokia 808 PureView made waves at the recently concluded MWC 2012 with its innovative 41 MP camera. Unfortunately, this fascinating phone will not be making its presence felt in North America.
The homepage for the Nokia 808 PureView suggests that it will be offered globally later this year. However, the markets targeted for the global launch will not include North America, smashing the dreams of consumers who wish to try the handset's remarkable shooter.
This year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona did not disappoint as it acted as a launching pad for a number of new cell phones across different mobile platforms. The trade show also allowed new manufacturers to show their wares and display their capabilities. The Samsung Galaxy S III did not make an appearance but other devices from other manufacturers carried the event. Let's look at the notable cellphones displayed at MWC 2012.
