Rumor: Nokia’s Catwalk may become the Lumia 925, ready for announcement on May 14

Nokia-lumia-920-review-flCheck out our review of Nokia Lumia 925 smart phone.

On May 14, Nokia is going to show off a new Lumia phone, and according to a Chinese Windows Phone blog, one of the devices will be the Lumia 925. We’re already familiar with the Lumia 920 – announced late last year – and are eagerly awaiting news of the Verizon-bound Lumia 928, but this is the first mention of the Lumia 925. It’s said to be better known by its Catwalk codename, and is likely to be the international GSM version of the Lumia 928.

If everything plays out as we expect, the Lumia 925 will be an updated version of the Lumia 920, with a slimmer, lighter aluminum body and a xenon flash replacing the dual-LED flash. If so, it’ll be announced really quite early – six months or so – into the 920’s life, a bold move considering the Lumia 920’s status and high price tag.

The launch of the Lumia 925 at the event could make sense, as although we’ve heard about the Lumia 928 for sometime, it’s only relevant to a certain section of the U.S. market, so for it to make its debut at an event in London is highly unlikely. Nokia already has several exclusive versions of its international hardware on sale with U.S. networks, and if the 928 is Verizon’s Catwalk, then it could play out as with phones like the Lumia 820, with its GSM counterpart coming first. Don’t worry too much if this does happen though, as Verizon will hold its own event just a few days later on May 22, during the far more America-centric CTIA show, where we’ll probably get to meet the Lumia 928.

The Lumia 925 is only one of the possible phones Nokia will reveal next week, as we’re still waiting for news on the rumored Nokia EOS, which could bring the full PureView camera experience to Windows Phone, and other (less likely) products such as a Nokia Windows 8 tablet. We’ll bring you all the news on May 14.

I’m going to do something crazy with my iPhone 15 Pro Max

I’m going to make a controversial suggestion: Don’t put your iPhone 15 Pro or iPhone 15 Pro Max in a case — use it naked instead.

I know it’ll go against everything we’ve learned about smartphones (usually the hard way) and how to protect them, but there are some really fascinating changes to Apple’s top smartphones this year, and not feeling them with your own hands would be a crime.

Amazon launched a pair of new devices for its Fire Kids range at its fall event, including updated models of the Fire HD 10 Kids and Fire HD 10 Kids Pro. While there's little to write home about in terms of physical updates, these two new tablets have also been released alongside some new apps that make them great options to entertain the whole family, not just children.

The big draws here are the new apps and games on offer. Amazon's big, new drive involves implementing AI into its products, and these two Kids tablets are no exception. The new Music Maker app allows children to become composers by combining a number of different instruments and sound effects into their own composition, while being assisted by the app's AI.

How to download watchOS 10 on your Apple Watch

It's that time of year again when Apple releases its major mobile operating system updates, and alongside iOS 17 for the iPhone, we're also getting a big new release for Apple's wearables in watchOS 10 — possibly the most significant software update we've ever seen for the Apple Watch.

For one, watchOS 10 brings with it a fresh new design to the user interface that's almost like owning an entirely new Apple Watch. However, there's a lot more here than just a fresh coat of paint, including new Smart Stack widgets, more powerful workout tracking for cyclists and hikers, new mental and vision health features, and more.
