for 2 Chainz, but on Saturday night the Based

Atlanta for a triumphant hoemcoming to
headline Hot 107.9’s annual Birthday Bash
concert; and he added a few big names to the
already star-studded guest list.

Alpacalyptic Times

By Enoch Chuang

Celebrity dating is a common thing. They get together and after a while, they either break up, like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez or they get married, like Jay-Z and Beyonce. The more known and common one is the break up scenario, and Taylor Swift takes it on a complete new level.

In just a few weeks, Nokia will unveil its next Lumia Flagship, undoubtedly the EOS. This beast will most likely tote a 41MP shooter, akin to Nokia’s own Prueview 808. For all those familiar with the Purview 808, it has the best camera on any smart phone to date. Finally, Nokia plans to bring this amazing camera to Windows Phone with the EOS however, will this impressive camera make a difference in Windows Phone sales?

Very few devices leave a truly lasting impression on consumers, which after all, consumers are the reason manufactures make smart phones. Obviously the iPhone is world renowned, and Android, carried heavily by the Galaxy S, is runner-up. Microsoft however has yet to gain much market share from its competitors. With the EOS, Nokia and Microsoft are looking to turn heads with a smart phone that can out shot most point-and-shot cameras.

Sadly however, I fear…
