HMD Global finally releases Nokia 8 kernel source code

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

Despite doing a pretty good job on keeping its phones up to date, HMD Global has until recently had a bit of trouble with releasing the kernel sources for its devices. But in a "finally" moment, the exclusive manufacturer of the Nokia brand has released the Nokia 8 source codes to the developer community.

Having this code allows developers to start tinkering with custom software for the device(s) in question. These kernel sources for the Nokia 8, which was very well-received by our very own (awesome) Rita, have often been requested by the dev community since the phone launched.

Google will begin certifying Android devices for business use, starting with phones from LG, BlackBerry, Motorola, and others

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

When it comes to security, Android devices are a mixed bag - to say the least. Few manufacturers make promises about long-term support, and timely security updates are rare. This is understandably a concern for large businesses, which often don't want to worry about security flaws or constantly deploy new devices. For many enterprise customers, the question of which Android phones should be used is difficult to answer.

Google's solution to this problem is the 'Android Enterprise Recommended' program, which defines which Android devices are ideal for business use.

HMD Global still hasn’t released the kernel sources for the Nokia 8

Saturday, February 3rd, 2018

HMD Global, the exclusive manufacturer of Nokia-branded phones, has done a pretty good job of keeping their devices up-to-date. Late last month, for instance, the company opened up the Android 8.1 beta for the Nokia 8. But this doesn't change the fact that it's been 136 days since HMD's Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, tweeted that the kernel source code for the Nokia 8 would be shared with the open-source community — and it still hasn't happened.

Nokia opens up Android 8.1 beta for the Nokia 8

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

Treble and bootloader aside, HMD is doing a great job at providing as close to a "Googley" Android experience to Nokia users as possible. The Nokia 8 started beta testing Android 8.0 Oreo a few months ago then received the official update, now the Nokia 5 and 6 are in the beta stage, but the company isn't stopping here. Android 8.1 has been out for a while for Nexuses and Pixels and so that needs to start making its way to Nokia phones as well, starting with the Nokia 8 as announced by HMD's Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas.

Nokia 8 gets Android 8.0 Oreo, update for Nokia 6 and 5 coming soon

Friday, November 24th, 2017

One of the ways Nokia (or rather, HMD Global) is trying to differentiate itself is with quick Android updates. Android 8.0 Oreo, being the first major update since Nokia started releasing its phones, is the first major test of this claim. Now, about three months after it started rolling out to Google devices, the Nokia 8 is receiving its Oreo update.

The public Oreo beta test for the Nokia 8 started last month, and now the final version is rolling out to unlocked models.

Nokia 8 review: Nokia looks and Nexus feel make for a very enjoyable experience

Saturday, November 18th, 2017

Confused nostalgia. It's hard to find another way to describe my feeling right now as I sit down to write this Nokia 8 review. For those who don't know my history, my career covering mobile devices started with a personal blog in 2006 and a Nokia 3250 XpressMusic. For several years, I was Dotsisx (.sisx), a nickname that evokes how much I was involved with the Symbian OS. I reviewed phones, I covered events, I spent hours daily looking for the best apps and games.

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

I've had the Nokia 8 for a little over a week and have run Android 7.1.1 on it out of the box. Yesterday though, Nokia announced a beta labs program to test out Oreo on the Nokia 8 and I instantly jumped at the opportunity. After downloading and installing the update, the Nokia 8 booted into Android 8.0 and I started looking for the small changes that Nokia has implemented this time around.
