Some highlights of the final week of January 2010: we saw a fantastic game for the N900 called Numpty Physics, and Hiren showed us how to send MMS from the N900. WOMWorld played guess who with 40 Booklet 3Gs whilst Symbian put out a mysterious countdown (still ticking down – iz gonna be big apparently) […]

iPad vs Booklet 3G/Netbook vs N900/Smartphone vs laptop: Which is the most productive device?

Imagine you could only have one device on a day’s work. Steve Jobs criticized netbooks yesterday saying netbooks aren’t better than anything.  Apple are now trying to carve yet another new niche (the path pre-paved by iPhone) or at least make people think that’s what they’re doing. Really, they’re just polishing, adding sprinkles of BS […]

Steve Jobs announced today that Apple is the largest mobile company in the world (in terms of revenue). Bigger than Sony, Samsung and even Nokia.

Another test from James Burland places the 848X480 recording N900 against the 640X480 iPhone 3GS. James notes that currently the N900 suffers from frame rate drops and at times confusion with exposure. The frame rate issue is supposedly going to be fixed in the next firmware update. Nokia’s been producing phones with great video recording […]

This is a video for the Nokia Zero: The new Nokia phone to rule them all. This post is meant to demonstrate the importance of having a “memorable product name”. This goes for services as well as devices. Here I’ve taken “Zero” as an example. The rest of the post after the video explains why […]

This video was shown in Symbian CEO, Lee William’s keynote at SEE 2009. It’s supposed to be an artist’s concept of what Symbian UI will look like in the future. Note, this is apparently NOT in the Symbian roadmap. It’s about a mashup of information – integration of social network/services. …hmm a little rant… I’m […]

The BBC recently aired a couple of technology focused documentaries, one called Life and Death of a Mobile Phone and the other Upgrade Me. They’re available to watch/download on the BBC iPlayer (Sorry, UK residents only – er, unless you know how…) I always find it interesting to see technology related programmes designed for the […]

Aah, the slide to unlock. A side swiping gesture made iconic by the Apple iPhone. No button combinations, holding keys or unlock switches – just a somewhat futuristic thumb-flick to the right. A mate of mine stupidly bought an iPhone (first gen) just for the slide to unlock. N97, 5800, 5530 and other S60 5th […]

Episode 87 takes a break from Steve’s news and reviews of the phone world, instead shifting the limelight to his PhonesShow viewing audience as they reveal which phone they’re using right now, and why they love it. It’s a strong Nokia showing, but then again, Steve is from All About Symbian :). via 3lib My […]
