For all those people wandering around our great Australian cities and spewing they can't watch a streaming video over 4G because of network access and congestion - we've found a place where you can get access to a brand new 4G network that isn't being hammered. The downside - you'll need to travel about 384,000km to get there. Nokia and Vodafone are teaming up to put 4G on the moon.

Mobile World Congress is the big show when it comes to all things mobile. Whether that's laptops, smartphones, tablets or retro gadgets, this is where everyone that isn't Apple unveils their latest and greatest products. This year has been no exception, with Nokia, Huawei, and others all showing off the mobile hardware we'll be coveting for the next year.
Here are the five new products that have us intrigued and grabbed our attention.
I've been using the new Nokia 3310 3G as my primary phone for a full work week, and it's been like living in a localised time distortion field where I was in 2000 and everybody else was 17 years ahead. As someone with an appreciation for retro technology I thought this might be an interesting — or even refreshing — experience, but it was borderline intolerable.
Aside from the classic 3310 dumbphone, Nokia announced a trio of affordable phones earlier this year. Sporting Gorilla Glass 5 screens and running on Android's Nougat, they will be available locally starting from $249.
If it wasn't such a laugh, you'd cry. NBNCo, the company that will be delivering a patchwork of network technologies in order to bring fast broadband access to all of us has conducted a test using technology from Nokia that could deliver 10Gbps performance - if only FttP was on the menu for all of us.
Ever since Nokia introduced the new iteration of its classic 3310 there's been an intense debate going on in my head.
"It's really cheap!" shouts Nostalgia.
"Why the hell would you want a phone that doesn't have apps?" replies Logic.
Maybe that same debate has been going on in your head too. Don't worry, I went hands-on with the device and now have enough facts to settle things.
This year's Mobile World Congress has gone retro: Nokia has announced it will be bringing back the classic 3310 handset and, with it, the classic mobile game Snake.
Even if you don't get the new Nokia 3310, you can still play the game on your current smartphone or on your computer through Facebook Messenger. Read on for the instructions.
Nokia has announced it will be resurrecting the iconic 3310 mobile phone that thousands of Aussies dropped without breaking. It promises a whopping four weeks of battery life and represents a refreshing antidote to feature-packed, gimmicky smartphones - but will it ever make it to Australia? Here's what you need to know.
We all know Microsoft's phone business has been floundering and it has all but written off its US$7.1 billion acquisition of Nokia. In May, the company announced it was selling its feature phone business to a subsidiary of Chinese electronics manufacturer Foxconn but Microsoft has not given up on making Nokia handsets just yet. It has just launched the Nokia 216, a feature phone that will appeal to developing markets. Here are the details.
PayPal is the latest company to ditch support for “fringe” phone operating systems: Windows Phone, BlackBerry and Amazon’s Fire OS. This decision comes on the heels of Microsoft’s announcement of getting rid of a further 1850 jobs; mostly from the remnants of its acquisition of Nokia. It was the latest terrible business decision from a company that is fighting its slow slide to irrelevance...
During Nokia World 2013, Flipboard announced it would be bringing its popular social news reader to the Windows ecosystem, starting with the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet (read our first impressions of the device here.)
Fresh on the heels of its Lumia 928 announcement, Nokia has just taken the wraps off the Lumia 925: an updated, metal-clad version of the Lumia 920 that packs some enticing new features beneath the hood.
Nokia has officially lifted the curtains on its latest flagship Windows Phone offering; the Lumia 928. Boasting a feature-packed 8.7-megapixel Pureview camera with Carl Zeiss optics, a 4.5-inch OLED screen and 4G/LTE connectivity, it's shaping up to be one of the best Windows Phone on the market. But will it be enough to convert the Android and iOS faithful? The answer will likely depend on whether you prefer processing grunt or a great camera.
