That’s right folks. We finally have an app to utilise the FFC on our N9’s to take photos. Haven’t tried it as my N9 is out for repair, with the temp. replacement to arrive today, so I don’t know how well it works. It isn’t a free app, costing AUD$2.00 but, if it works as […]

Awesome! Yoda, Vodafone and Nokia Lumia 800 (no Jedi Training needed)

Awesome! Yoda, Vodafone and Nokia Lumia 800 (no Jedi Training needed)

| January 19, 2012 | 10 Replies

How awesome is this advert? Star Wars’ Yoda, and the Nokia Lumia 800 getting contacts from the old Moto. The premise is that there’s a difficulty in transferring contacts and you’ll be needing some special skills, such as that from a Jedi (hence Yoda). But not with the Vodafone service.  Well of course we could just bluetooth transfer […]

Znet, popscience, laptop mag, Cnet, cultofmac, many others and now also IGN. In IGN’s best of CES 2012 award, the best smartphone category is won by….The Nokia Lumia 900. It’s quite an odd feeling getting so much unanimous praise for a Nokia device (and having continued for well over 6 months now since N9). Again, […]

eBuddy XMS for MeeGo and WP7 out of Beta

| January 19, 2012 | 27 Replies

The latest SMS alternative for Nokia Phones, eBuddy XMS has finally graduated out of Beta status. (Surprising since the last version on both N9 and Lumia were quite buggy. Lumia being slightly better.) I can’t seem to find any sort of changelog so I hope this isn’t the same as the last beta release. If […]

Simple yet brilliantly addicting game. Clash of the planets is kinda like a logic/puzzle type game in a sense that you have to have a strategy of how you’re going to invade the other planets. The game play is actually very simple. Just send over some troops from your planet to the enemy/empty planet. Your […]

Here’s Nokia’s video of the bloggers they (Nokia Connects) brought over to CES. Remember Mike and his LA kings Jersey? Here’s how it went down.  If it looks like the other videos of bloggers in that hotel room, it’s probably because all the rooms look the same (not as some suggested, they’re all in the […]
