Nokia Lumia 920

This is nice. If you've been waiting a long time for Nokia to come up with something competitive in the smartphone market then the wait might be over, because the Lumia 920 is certainly as good as the best of them.

Perhaps the interesting thing is Windows Phone 8, based on the same core as the desktop version. It holds out the promise of eventual Active Directory integration and easier management for corporates. And it's a lot, lot sexier than a BlackBerry.

Nokia N9. Beautiful but doomed.

I've always been a fan of big Nokias, especially the Communicator series. My collection includes a Nokia E90, Nokia 9500, Nokia 9110i, a Nokia 770 tablet and even the rare Nokia 7710 touchscreen phone.

So I should be pretty excited by the Nokia N9. Well, yes.. actually I am excited by the N9 which is Nokia's most powerful phone to date. There's a lovely big OLED screen, a relatively fast processor, lots of memory and the interesting looking MeeGo operating system as well.

But will I be buying one? Probably not. MeeGo is doomed. Nokia announced a switch to Windows earlier this year, but the MeeGo-powered N9 was already in development and is now official. However, it's quite likely that we won't see another MeeGo device from Nokia, leaving the N9 as an orphan. And an expensive orphan at that.

The N9 really should have been announced over a year ago to follow up from the N900, as it is it's a beautiful but ultimately doomed device.. which is quite sad. Perhaps there will be some bargain ones on eBay in the future though..

Virus / Malware on Nokia.com / miisolutions.net

Nokia.com appears to have been compromised through a third-party script:

europe.nokia.com (e.g. hxxp:||europe.nokia.com/support/download-software/nokia-pc-suite) ->
nokia.tt.omtrdc.net ->
omniture-nokia.secure.miisolutions.net ->

Details on the general attack can be found here. It appears that miisolutions.net has had malicious code injected into the script, rather than it being Nokia.com itself that has been hacked.At the time of writing the malicious code is still present.

Update: the infected page at miisolutions.net has been taken down.

Awesome or what? The Nokia N97.

Announced a couple of hours ago, the Nokia N97 is a pretty awesome looking bit of kit. We've waited a long, long time for Nokia to come up with something like this.. although I don't think that I will be giving up the Nokia E90 just yet, since the rumour is that there will be a touchscreen Communicator next year (probably announced at Mobile World Congress).

It's not cheap: €550 (around £450 or $650) SIM-free before tax. You can get a laptop for that. Very tempting though...
