Nokia is working on a Windows tablet and it was reported to have Asus Vivo Tab style keyboard dock/cover. Here is the information we about it. The 10.1 inch tablet will have USB and HDMI-out, and also cellular connectivity, with 10 hours battery life which can  be fast-charged to 50% in a short period. The real innovation however will come from the accompanying cover, which The Verge noted will snap in place and will double battery life, provide a keyboard and also a kickstand for the tablet. The cover will also provide two USB ports. While the cover sounds rather fantastical, it is of note that the Asus Vivotab RT (pictured above) provides a “cover” with very similar functionality, and which effectively turns the Vivotab into a laptop. Given that Nokia cover also includes a battery and keyboard it is difficult to see how it could have a much different ...

MSNerd, long time Microsoft leaker,has passed on a little tip about the next version of Windows on ARM. Currently Windows on ARM runs on NVidia, Qualcomm and TI processors, which leaves OEMs like Samsung unable to use processors from their own supply chain. According to MSNerd, in the next update to Windows Nokia and Samsung will be able to use processors from their favourite providers – in Nokia’s case ST-Ericsson’s Novathor processor, and in Samsung’s case its own Exynos processor and SOC. Blue is said to be an interim update to Windows, much like a service pack, and may be the start of a regular, more phone-like pattern of yearly updates to Windows which add features, as we have come to expect from Windows Phone and the iOS. So far we do not know much else about the update, but one can hope the update removes the reliance of the ...

Nokia sold its Qt commercial business to a Finish company called Digia. Digia is now developing and selling Qt commercial license to companies around the world. Even though the existing Qt apps works fine on Windows 8 Desktop mode, Digia is now working on bringing Qt dev framework to develop Windows 8 Metro Style apps. The upcoming Windows 8 release is expected to bring a large amount of different kinds of tablet devices into the market. These devices are typically equipped with desktop-like capabilities, and can basically run all today’s existing Windows applications. Digia has been testing Qt Commercial with the Windows 8 Developer Preview, and both Qt C++ and Qt Quick applications work nicely. There were no modifications needed to make them run just like they do on Windows 7. However, in order to maximally benefit from the new things in Windows 8, the Metro style needs to be ...

A persistent complaint we hear is that Microsoft’s services, for a global company, is extremely US-centric. Hopefully their partnership with Nokia will help change it. One of the first fruits of that collaboration is that Microsoft Steetview, their Google Streetside competitor, is coming to Europe, courtesy of Nokia’s Navteq mapping cars (pictured above). Microsoft will apparently start by snapping London between March and June 2011, according to their schedule here, and unlike Streetside will not aim to map the whole city and all the streets in the country, but will stick to the business district and tourist attractions, ostensibly to protect privacy, but a limitation which I feel will reduce the value of the project immensely. Both Microsoft and Nokia have earlier said that mapping technology will be one of the lynchpins of their collaboration, with Microsoft planning to use it for location-based advertising and the two planning to share ...

Yesterday, WMPoweruser reported that NAVTEQ is launching Destination Maps that allows indoor navigation. Bing had similar mapping solution called Venue Maps with full maps of few US malls. Now today Bing has announced that Bing Venue Maps now shows 9 largest US malls and 148 malls in total. Here is the list of 9 malls, Mall of America, MN South Coast Plaza, CA Woodfield Shopping Center, IL King of Prussia Mall, PA Millcreek Mall, PA Del Amo Fashion Center, CA Houston Galleria, TX Roosevelt Field, NY Tysons Corner Center, VA.   I think Bing Venue Maps will soon be powered by NAVTEQ’s Destinations maps when Nokia-Microsoft deal gets completed in a year or so that the combined service might explore the market of indoor mapping to next level.
