2 Days to go…Sports Tracker site. . . N800 says no?

| January 23, 2008 | Reply

This post is being written on the N800 via SU-W8 keyboard.

Now I’ve had another SU-W8 for a year and my gripes are still the same: There’s sufficient width to acommodate a real QWERTY keyboard but instead the top line is fused with both the numbers/letters/symbols. I know there’s a battery there and it is quite a relatively old accessory, but consumers won’t care for excuses when they’ll be buying products. They’ll just get the one which better suits their needs, i.e. Not the one with the excuse (just remembering the reasoning from several Nokia product managers at Nokia world when questioned as to why some of their products were leaving out simple things such as an external hot swap card port)

Hopefully, it’s something I’ll get used to as I’m forced to use it as my only way of text input other than the understandably slower touch input.

Today, straight after my exam I played about with the latest update to sports tracker: 1.70. It kept on crashing after installation last night but it seems to have settled down now. On the n82 side, GPS is still reasonably fast and maintains a good connection through out.

Here’s the link to my ‘workout’. Since maps can only zoom in so much, pictures taken in close viciniity just blur on the map placement so that’s something I’ll have to try and avoid.


I actually had to cheat to get that link as my N800 wouldn’t load the sports tacker page properly. (Emailed it to myself and opened from N800…I’m determined to post using this device)It was just perpetually saying it was “loading data” even after being left for 10 minutes. The same page worked via WLAN though so…hunting for free WLAN maybe my only way of personally editing the picture descriptions for sports tracker.

I’ll leave you now with just pictures of the BH-701…it’s even more piratey with its chain.

After a few days of use, I’ll let you guys know what I think about it.

(Post edit: oooh…I’m going to miss my lappy, haha)
