    Lol i'm far more interested in that seriously sexy new Nokia tablet. No mention of that on here though. Reply

    I'm really craving that nokia 1520! But I'm trying to figure out how to justify it given that the nexus 5 will only be $100 more OFF CONTRACT. Reply
  • Mondozai - Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - link

    I've always viewed the perennial "you guys are biased towards Apple" complaints levelled here at Anandtech's comments' section and forums as baseless.

    But I'm starting to reconsider. I myself am most interested in getting an iPad Mini 2 as an upgrade from my 4th Gen iPad, but Nokia just launched a ton of new devices today and you guys don't even write about it. Have you guys decided simply not to cover the Windows Phone ecosystem? For people like me, non-fanboys who consider all altenatives and try to make a rational decision and not based on emotion, we want coverage on all things.

    I don't demand that you liveblog the Nokia event which is far from America, Apple's events are much closer after all, but at least a news item or something. Stunning lack of interest in the 3rd biggest ecosystem.
  • eanazag - Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - link

    I think the Nokia should/would be covered in pipeline. To some extent things are covered on the Dailytech feed on the side. There is a thing called logistics and it just doesn't cover travel distance. It covers people as well and if there is more than one event in a single day then it might not get covered here. There is one smartphone editor and Anand who can and does cover lots of stuff. Give them a break. I don't think the Nokia event is more interesting than Pipeline value. If Nokia provides some review units, then Yes we should see fair effort given to what is genuinely new. I have listened to the podcasts and agree that Windows on the Nokia devices doesn't really warant the same attention as Apple's event today.

    I am not expecting any shockers like Android based Nokia phones. The only thing I would find interesting is a Bay Trail Nokia tablet running Windows 8. Other than that meh.
  • Anand Lal Shimpi - Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - link

    It's just been a lack of time/bandwidth. I was in Montreal, then just came out here for this - meanwhile pushed out the T100/Surface2/SurfacePro2 reviews. Nokia's stuff is interesting for sure. Reply
  • teiglin - Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - link

    It's an issue of bias vs. interest. From what I can tell, Anand and Brian are both Mac and iPhone users, so Apple is a primary coverage topic for them. Obviously Brian also uses Android and Anand also seems to use the Moto X, but neither uses Windows Phone/RT at all, and I think Brian has commented in the past that he's just not interested.

    I don't think it makes them biased, insofar as what they say about Apple or Microsoft or Google is unfair, but it objectively leads to Apple having more time in the spotlight, and MacOS getting more in-depth coverage than Windows. That's what they use, so that's what they can talk about--I wouldn't want them to write about things they don't use/understand properly just for the sake of fulfilling some expectation of providing "balanced" coverage.
  • Nagorak - Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - link

    Apple should have more time in the spotlight though. If you look at the usage numbers, there are many more people who buy Apple products than will buy Nokia's tablet or Surface. Whether you like them or not, you have to admit they have a dominant position at the moment. I would never buy an Apple product, but that doesn't mean I can't respect their position. Reply
  • ESC2000 - Sunday, October 27, 2013 - link

    Sort of...iPad market share is dropping every quarter...35% market share last I saw and I'd bet it will be 10% like their phones and computers within a few years Reply
  • tipoo - Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - link

    Every publication follows the page views. Apple events generate lots of them, perhaps even more than full reviews of other competing products. By being here, you encouraged it. And the Nokia tablet looks like it could be good, but it's not very noteworthy, it's much like the Surface in a plastic shell. Reply
  • Anand Lal Shimpi - Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - link

    We were not invited to the Nokia event. I'd be interested in reviewing the tablet though. I'd love to see how S800 compares to Tegra 4 under Windows RT 8.1. Reply
