Ok, who turned on the switch at Nokia that makes them just want to talk about the #Switch, which is the Finnish OEM's new catchphrase as the Nokia Lumia 920 starts picking up traction all over the world; in the U.S., the exciting news is that we could soon be seeing a high-end Nokia Lumia model for Verizon Wireless which could be a carrier-specific variant of the Nokia Lumia 920...

They rushed it cause there Lumia WP8 were declining, so they thought they'd come out with this inception and show the world Nokia was first, but with heavy adverts and spending millions on adverts in peoples heart Nokia and Wp8 is dieing™

I envision wireless charging the way Nikola Tesla did. Free energy and from a distance, not from setting your phone on a pad, might as well use a charger to text and charge at the same time. Idiots.

We'll get there eventually. Just has to be implemented safely and effectively. No sense in having it if it causes people to have heart attacks or the charging is less than a trickle to where it actually gains power when using it.

I find it completely funny that a child like troll feels the need to degrade WP8 or Nokia.. Feed the troll, nice comment troll.. Didn't I see it somewhere else? Oh yeah, its every thread with either of these companies in it. Its okay, you feel threatened bye what you have no idea about. You just continue to use your buggy ICS. You like a stutter do you? I thought so... You sir should be banned for your complete nonsense. You give android a bad name and make them look ignorant...

I havent seen any stutter on any Android yet and I have used it since Eclair. You must really need to look for it.

Maybe its one of those really low end phones that are free and you must pick the worst one out of that free pile.

Dude you are delusional if you think ICS wasn't a stutterfest no matter the phone..reason I'm speaking of ICS? Troll has ICS and not jelly bean. I never bought the low end phone.. I had a nexus one, GS2, nitro hd, one x and now a l920

Not just bad for health but people behind this comic has no logic at all! xD
You can still move and use your phone while it's charging with a traditional wire charger.. Can we tell the same about restricted "wireless" chargers? LMAO! Logic FAIL, nokia!

No. Wireless charging is bull crap irrespective of the LOGO. It's just a way to earn more money by these greedy corporates and nothing else. Comfort? Comfort my foot it just adds to their bottom line at expense of public health.

NOKIA is not a charitable company nor are others. Do you think you would get it free? Cost is already built into the device and the FREE CARROT is dangled just to lure ... c'mon you can be more sensible than that :)

Well not just NOKIA anyone who tries to make Wireless Charging as USP are just fooling the INNOCENT buyers .. i call it "DUPING" and not fooling .. Around 15% of population is walking on diabetes without knowing that they are prone to "D".

And i see my son's Xperia P always on charging while he is playing games and testing continuously for hours ...

First of all that talks about its bad if you have diabetes... I'm not fat and I certainly don't have diabetes so for me wireless is the way to go.. Plugging in your phone is a pain sometimes and every phone I've owned the micro USB slot gets loose.

29. rusticguy (Posts: 2828; Member since: 11 Aug 2012)


The way you talk it is clear you have no understanding about diabetes ... and as a diabetic i can say so because before i was Dx'd even i did not know what diabetes is all about and carried same misconceptions as you do. Blind love is always bad and catastrophic ... use your head ... anything mishandled will get "loose" ... looks like you are blinded by Nokia love. Bad effects are traceable in a diabetic due to broken carbohydrate metabolism system but that doesn't mean it doesn't cause same changes in normal person. In normal person the feedback loops works perfect so it comes in normal range but it does overwork your pancreas to get it normal :)

As the saying goes ... better be safe than sorry as "D" can strike just about anyone ... except you perhaps :)

I am glad to see that Android is popular, and it's really great to see some of these people bashing WP8: the cyber-criminal community couldn't thrive if not for the huge amount of malware and viri embedded in Android apps. It's worth remember that cyber-criminals are people too; and stealing credit card information and other forms of identity and data theft would be far more difficult if more individuals were using WP8, ...

The cyber-criminals of the world wish to sincerely thank those who support the Android platform, and diss other more secure mobile OS's. They appreciate you helping them fill their own bank accounts with your money!

>> 6. Benefit of Wireless charger, when you PUT DOWN your device, even for 5 to 10 minutes, it will instantly start charging, get the point? And when you get a call, you can get it up, pick the call, talk for 30 minutes or an hour and put it back and it will be charging AGAIN

Do batteries have limits/life based on "Charging cycles"? I think pushing the battery thru too frequent cycles also reduces life. I am willing to learn from experts like you so asking :)

Did you mean to ask me this?

Well I happen to read something related a short while back, which said these batteries can take charge cycles like that. They did specify the type but I honestly forget.

I myself used to wait till battery goes down to minimum level and then I put my devices to charge and try not to unplug them until they are charged to max level. Now it has been over a year or near a year I am not doing it and I am not seeing any negative change in battery strength.

Yes sorry it went under wrong thread but was for you. As long as battery is replaceable short cycles one can live with as even if battery finally dies it can be replaced. Nokia isn't shipping with removeable batteries.

RIM seems to be concentrating on right things like removable batteries, extension slot etc.

Let’s talk about it with the little sense should we? And I will be talking about the uses of Wireless Charging, not because of Nokia is doing it so keep the fan-hatred from clouding something called common-sense.

1. Just an important reminder, there is a WIRED charger come with the package, so stop crying because wireless charging is optional for those who USE it and who VALUE it, you crying peeps can still use the wired chargers

2. Try to appreciate a technology; if not then massive giga processors are useless for mobiles, extreme number of resolution is worthless for screens. Both eat batteries

3. How long do you normally talk on the phone in a sitting? 3 or 4 continue hours that you actually sit next to a socket with your phone connected to a charger? You need a life.

4. For how long do you need to surf or play games on your device without putting it down, again same as above, you need a life if you don’t let go of your device for that long

5. You can at least still surf, watch movie or listing to songs when the device is resting on its charging bed. I believe you can use Bluetooth for calls too for a while. Use the accessories for your advantage, not to bash your head against others

6. Benefit of Wireless charger, when you PUT DOWN your device, even for 5 to 10 minutes, it will instantly start charging, get the point? And when you get a call, you can get it up, pick the call, talk for 30 minutes or an hour and put it back and it will be charging AGAIN

7. Possibility is that in next 6 to 8 months more accessories will be available with wireless charging options. At that time you will not have to find perfect pin when you are outside on strange places. You might find a Wireless charging station

I have more to go on with but I will stop by here. I am one of those who will use wireless charging and value it.

you forgot to mention one more point....while the phone is connected to the wired charger and talking on the phone at the same time has a great chace of causing death due to the current passing through the wire to the earpiece and then through the body of the person.......

posted on 22 Jan 2013, 06:02

130. FireDragon (Posts: 107; Member since: 13 Nov 2009)


I am aware of these sort of stories. The only possibility I see is if for some reason the charger short circuit or something that let full AC current pass to the wire to handset, make it explode and give person a shock.

But... accident (sh!t) happens, I remember a 3-sim China Phone explode all by itself in a pocket few months ago.

I myself talked for hours (yes hours, 2 3 hours on a single call) with handset attached to charger. Luckily that never happen and I hope it never happen to anyone.

Ok. Troll⤴. Wp8 is streamlined just like IOS. Apps aren't as diverse, they all work appropriately with the OS. Android is Completely open. And pardon me, but just like your mom who keeps her legs open, you'll get your share of apps that'll give you that bad itch. And that "mother" of yours gave me quite a few of those. Just cause the whole town loves her doesn't mean that she's the Best out there. My windows phone may be closed, but I've yet to get any bad itches from any of her apps. (and that my friend is the downside of android , I do not have the time or patience to deal with the frustrations of needing an app to work when I need it to)

P.s. I like android, WP, and IOS in their own ways, and I've used them all as a heavy user for extended periods of time. But like said before, ppl prefer different experiences. I prefer WP. I've yet to have an issue. (the essential apps are all there and if not IE for WP works surprisingly well) I suggest you try a WP and or IOS for a good period of time to see it as an average user. You might actually enjoy it.
