Selfie addicts rejoice, the Nokia Lumia 730 has arrived. Since July of this year, Microsoft, which now owns Nokia, has hinted at releasing a smartphone designed for taking selfies. With the introduction of the Lumia 730, Microsoft has finally made good on its promise.
Nokia announced last Friday that the Finnish mobile manufacturing company has teamed up with Samsung in order to bring its Here app to Android-run Galaxy smartphones and to Samsung's Tizen-based smartwatches.
For those not in the know, Here is a mapping app that Nokia developed and kept, even when software giant Microsoft purchased the Finland-based phone maker's mobile device segment. The Here app was only available for devices that run on Windows 8 or Windows Phone.
Yet to be publicly announced, the Lumia 830 will be the next upper mid-range device to be released by Nokia, which is now owned by Microsoft. Like any other anticipated new phone model, the Lumia 830 has its own share of rumors and leaks associated with it. For instance, last July, a series of photos were posted on the Chinese website Weibo, purportedly showing the phone's exterior, specifically its aluminum frame and polycarbonate rear side.
After a few years of being almost exclusively in the smartphone telecom industry, it seems that Microsoft is changing course, a bit. Back in April 2014, Microsoft acquired Finnish tech company Nokia with the intent of becoming larger players in the smartphone industry. After the acquisition, Nokia stopped all production of smartphones on every operating system other than Windows Phone.
USA Today has reported that a bill is in the process of being passed that requires all smartphones have to a "kill switch" installed by the manufacturers. What exactly is a "kill switch" and why are these going to be installed?
