  • News: Nokia Lumia 800 and 710: What You Need To Know

    Nokia officially unveiled on Wednesday what company CEO Stephen Elop called "the first real Windows Phone," the Nokia Lumia 800 and its lower-end cousin, Lumia 710. The 800's design is very similar (some might say a carbon copy) to the critically-acclaimed MeeGo-based Nokia N9. The N9 was also mourned by reviewers since it was Nokia's first and last MeeGo phone, and a device that never shipped in the U.S. Nokia said the Lumia 800 will start shipping in Europe in November for about $580. The 710 will cost about $375 and will first ship to Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan before the end of the year.

  • News: Hacking Apple's Siri: Not So Easy

    Hackers looking to port Apple's Siri digital assistant to iOS devices other than the iPhone 4S claim to have a rudimentary version of Siri running on the original iPad. Twitter user Jackoplane recently posted screenshots online showing Siri fully integrated into the iPad's operating system. The only problems is Siri can't do much on the iPad right now since most of Siri's processing takes place on Apple servers. Similar to the version of Siri on the iPhone 4 that hacker Steve Troughton-Smith had up and running earlier in October, the iPad doesn't appear to be able to interface with Apple's servers.
