Nokia Shares Surges 7% On Reports About Huawei ‘Open’ To Buying Them
PC Advisor decided to see which is the best mobile platform by pitting the Nokia Lumia 620 against the iPhone 5, Blackberry 10 and Sony Xperia Z, in a test designed to see which phone was easiest to use by novices unfamiliar with the platform.
PC Advisor took four groups of users and deposited them in the centre of Edinburgh with a phone and a mobile platform that each had never used before and set them a series of navigational challenges, asking them to find and take pictures of famous landmarks identified only by cryptic clues.
Unfortunately we can not report that the team assigned the Nokia Lumia 620 did very well with the device, who in the end resorted to paper maps and emailing their pictures to Facebook instead of uploading them using an app, which they did not seem able to find.
The other groups overall did much better it seems, and I wonder if Windows Phone’s radically different user interface is responsible, or if the phone drew the short straw when it came to the capability of its team.
What do our readers think? Let us know below.

Updated WP 7.8 firmware for the Nokia Lumia 505, 510, 610 and 800 WP7.8 new firmware 8862 now on Navifirm
Plaffo.com reports that that Nokia has released new firmware for the Nokia Lumia 610 and 800 on Navifirm.
The Windows Phone 7.8 software remains unchanged, and has the fix for the Live tile bug, but the Nokia Lumia 800 firmware has been incremented to 1750.823.8862.13110 and the firmware for the Nokia Lumia 610 firmware to 1066.0.8862.13101.
Winp.cn reports that updated firmware has also popped up for the Nokia Lumia 505 and 510, and also a specific version for the Nokia Lumia 610 on China Unicom.
As of yet we do not know what is new, but hopefully this will be one to make the phones work better rather than worse.
