I followed the Nokia/Microsoft announcement yesterday with great interest as they unveiled their new Lumia Windows 8 phones. I’m a fan of Nokia devices and I’m happy to be convinced that the new Microsoft operating system will deliver on all the promises that Windows 7 didn’t quite manage to do. This comes a week before Apple reveal their new handset, which I’m expecting will be much the same as their last one but with a slightly higher resolution screen. I have heard rumours that the tech boys in the Apple labs have updated those nasty, tinny headphones that they bundle with their iPods and iPhones. Their horrible, noisy sound leakage has ruined many a bus and train journey for me. They will not be missed.
