Nokia DT-601 charging plate

Nokia DT-601

Charging plates can often be quite big and bulky, so the Nokia DT-601 looks to combat this issue.

Still as capable as any other charging plate, the 601 is smaller and circular in design rather than the larger rounded rectangle shapes that are more common.

The smaller size means less desk space is taken up, it weighs less and is more suited for portability.

It is available in an array of colours including Black, White, Cyan, Red & Yellow.

Watch the following video to see what you can expect and what they are like in action.

The are available here for £39.99 if you would like to purchase one.

Nokia DC-50 wireless charging plate

Nokia DC 50Wireless charging is slowly becoming more of a standard feature.  However one thing that has bugged many is that wireless charging really isn’t that wireless when the wireless charging plate has to be connected to the mains.

So what if there was a solution whereby this didn’t have to be the case?

The Nokia DC-50 offers just this.

You may be asking yourself how.

Well essentially the DC-50 is a battery pack with a 2400mAh battery.  Once charged, a wireless charging enabled device can be sat on top of it and be charged, with no wires.

The size of the battery in the DC-50 will offer 1-2 charges for many phones.

The pad itself can be charged wirelessly off another wireless charging plate if you really want, or of course it can be connected to the mains to be charged and used like a conventional charging plate.

Available in an array of colours here, the Nokia DC-50 comes in at £69.99 including VAT and works with a vast array of QI enabled devices.

Clove’s top 10 smartphones of February 2014

In January CES took place in Las Vegas and a numbr of new handsets were unveiled, but only one of which has landed on the shores of the UK, the Xperia Z1 Compact.

February is a big month in the mobile world, with Mobile World Congress (MWC) taking place in the last week.

Rumours are circulating at a frantic pace, but only when the event is over will we be able to look back and see which were correct. What we can be sure of is that manufacturers will be bringing us many new devices, that will likely appear in our top 10 lists later this year.

There isn’t a great deal of change in our overall list from January but there is at least 1 new entrant.

Nokia Lumia 1520 Pros & Cons

What are the advantages and disadvantages of the Nokia Lumia 1520?

Lumia 1520 Yellow Front

Pros

Display – When the Nokia Lumia 1520 was released, it was one of the first phones of its type to reach a 6 inch screen. Many other products before had come close, with only a couple reaching the barrier. Not only is the screen large, it is also of a high quality manufactured with a ClearBlack IPS panel at a resolution of 1920 x 1080. This means that you can view Full HD content and also benefit from an additional column of active tiles (the Windows Phone 8 interface) on the Home screen. There are also lots of other great benefits including super sensitive touch input and enhanced viewing in direct sunlight.

Build Quality – With Nokia you always know that you are going to have a product which has been crafted and produced to a premium standard. The materials used are not your typical plastics used by other manufacturers and thought has gone in the usage of the product. Buttons are conveniently located for the size and you have a final product which lasts and will still look good in a year’s time. Further demonstration of Nokia’s commitment to quality is the inclusion of Gorilla Glass 3, ensuring scratches to your screen are minimised.

Processor – A Qualcomm Snapdragon S800 2.2GHz processor has been included with the Lumia 1520.  This processor is currently Qualcomm’s highest range mobile unit, providing all the power you need for quickly moving between business applications, browsing the web and enjoying the latest games available on the Windows Store.

High Quality Camera - The 20 Megapixel Pureview camera technology developed by Nokia is quite simply stunning; producing the kind of photos you have always wanted on a smartphone, but have been unable to obtain. The level of detail which can be captured is amazing with bright and vivid colours, even in poor light conditions. This is to be expected as the camera benefits from ZEISS optics with a large f/2.4 aperture, 6-lens design, plus lots of other great features.

Cons

Physical size – The size of the screen is great but of course this increases the overall size of  the Lumia 1520 compared to other products. So even though Nokia has done a great job of keeping the product as compact as possible with good button placement and slimming at every opportunity, some potential customers will simply find that it is just too large for every day use.

Windows Phone 8 – Microsoft’s mobile operating system is very good for its target audience and also those who are willing to spend time learning its intricacies. There are some top-notch business applications included, the most notable being Microsoft Office.  Simply put though, one big problem is that Windows Phone is not a particularly popular development environment for application developers. With both Android and iOS providing more choice in available apps to the consumer. As a result your favourite app, or one you’re itching to try out simply might not be available within the Microsoft Store. Every potential WP8 customer should browse the store first before committing to their purchase.

Nano SIM slot – Having to change your SIM card can be an unnecessary frustration and with the Nokia Lumia 1520 you will likely need to do this, as it uses the new Nano SIM card standard. This new SIM card shape is both thinner and also decreases the overall dimensions further than the previous micro version. This makes it much more difficult to personally trim your existing card. Whilst possible, it is recommended to contact your mobile network provider for a new card.
