Real life: Not your run of the mill, every day April Fools Story

It's all very well making up ridiculous, improbable stories to accompany April 1st each year, but what of the real stories that have surprised us in the past, any of which might well have made a decent April Fools story in their own right? Below, Ewan and I list a number of contenders. You won't be an April Fool for reading!

Read on in the full article.

Xenon and LED on N8?

Guys let's cross our fingers for Xenon. And is that really a LED beside the Xenon??

I actually didn't read your first comment, but I guess lots of people are excited on the rumours. Hoping some tangible evidence? hmm I think I already heard one. hahah

Has anyone seen photos of the N8 from the front? I've only seen the rear view leaked shots that show the flash. 12MP sounds great, but I think I will be waiting from a Symbian^4 phone rather than see my phone get almost immediately superceded.

Hopefully it won't bomb like a dog in the way that the N900 did.

Lots of pictures on front. You could try on the thenokiablog. I think the screws that are visible was the one to be consider superceded.

Nokia make flagship model worth the price. - In a daring move Nokia to release flagship sporting current premium hardware technology with ample processor power, RAM, System Storage and GPU which will enable it to cope with future demands, running on their new stable Symbian OS with gorgeous user interface.

Oh no my bad that`s the other sort of April Fools`

No evidence I can give right now. But I have seen it in person.

Nice idea!
I only wish other sites would have had the same one....when I told my girlfriend about this article she got the idea, and the Ovi maps example, but after that I quickly stopped mentioning the other items :-)

Don't get too excited about leaked phone specs

Because you have no idea what parts of the leaked information are bullshit and what parts aren't. This will not be the first time that someone has tried to "spike a company's guns" by prereleasing misleading information so that the ultimate release is less impressive than the crap presented in the leak.

You could get all worked up and then be disappointed. It's a shame.
