The Nokia N900 Gets Previewed

Check out this great video previewing the Nokia N900, which packs a powerful ARM Cortex-A8 600MHz processor, up to 1GB of application memory and OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics acceleration. The result is PC-like multitasking, allowing many applications to run simultaneously with ease. Switching between applications is simple, as all running content is constantly available through the active dashboard. The panoramic homescreen can be fully personalized with favorite shortcuts, widgets and applications. Check out the video after the break…

Exclusive Q&A Session On The Nokia N97 PR 2.0 Firmware

Okay, it’s true. After all the hype for the new 2.0 Firmware I am also left feeling pretty disappointed, as are many of you. Well, fear not me friends, thanks to WOMWorld I have been invited to an exclusive Q&A session with the team behind the new 2.0 Firmware to discuss various aspects of the update. The virtual Q&A session is taking place on Tuesday 3rd November at 17.30GMT, where I will be amongst Nokia representatives Frank Zillikens, the Lead Firmware Developer and Catalin Gheorghiu, a member of the technical team responsible for the 2.0 Firmware update. This session is a chance to voice your opinions and ask any questions you like. More details after the jump…

If there is anything you would like to know or ask, leave a comment below and I will try to squeeze in as many questions as I can. If there is anything you’d like me to bring up in advance, if you let me know before Tuesday I will get WOMWorld to try and weave it into their conversation too.

The discussion will revolve around the following agendas:

  • How you are getting on with the device at the moment?
  • Where you see the Nokia N97 going in the future?
  • What do you and don’t you like about v2.0 Firmware?
  • What further improvements would you like to see?
  • Why certain aspects of the Firmware are as they are?

So think about these issues and get commenting below. After all, Nokia hosts these events in order to improve their quality of service, and if we don’t take part now, we will only have ourselves to blame when future projects aren’t quite up to scratch.

If you’ve been waiting to here from Nokia Care about re-downloading an application, game or any other content that you lost or deleted in error, you will be glad to hear that Nokia has officially announced that as from today, if you download or buy any content from the new Ovi Store, you can re-download it with the device used for the original purchase absolutely free.

The latest release of the Ovi Store v1.5.3 brings with it a simple way to restore any content you’ve already purchased or downloaded. You need to update your Ovi Store application on your device and the service is compatible with all devices, including S40 handsets (v1.6.1). The new service is pretty simple to use and also brings improved search, so finding more of what you want will be easier than ever.

Browser Test | WordPress on the Nokia N97 using Opera Mobile 10 beta

This post was written, tagged and edited, entirely on the Nokia N97 using Opera Mobile 10 beta, to simply demonstrate the power of this superb web browser. The image was also inserted via Share on Ovi using the mobile browser. Opera Mobile 10 is what Nokia need to look at when optimising the S60 browser. It would be great to have such a powerful browser pre-installed on all Nokia handsets. Check out my thoughts after the jump…

A Few Notes:

Opera Mobile 10 allows you to do many great things. You can copy and paste text directly from a web page, embed images and videos, and even multitask properly with multiple tabbed browsing. I did experienced one crash during the write up of this article, however something so minor should be taken with a pinch of salt considering the outcome of the final post. Furthermore, you can use most of the WordPress features, including the spell checker. You can also upload images from your device onto your server if you so wish.

I’ve tried to write articles on mobile devices using third party applications many times, however the options available through Opera Mobile 10 beta have finally allowed me to publish a finished piece. The Opera browser even allows you to preview the post, in a new tab if you like, to make sure it’s ready to be published. The only aspect of WordPress that never worked was the ability to edit using ‘visual mode,’ however I usually write in the html editor and so this wasn’t really a problem for me.
