I came across this video and upon watching it, many memories of Nokia rushed through my mind, its old struggles and new struggles, competition from rivals Samsung, Apple, OS rivals-Android, iOS and basically the media at large. Maybe it is just me and my memories of using Nokia tech, TV-out via RGB, GPUs back in the OMAP24xx era, […]

Tommi Laukanen strikes again with yet another awesome step forward with QT QML projects. Inspired by Flipboard for iPad (which he says would be the one app to make him get one) he’s sought about to mimic Flipboard’s page turn effect with QML script. Flipboard for iPad looks great huh? I wonder what other aspects […]

Yesterday we saw Kasvopus, a new project from Tommi Laukkanen that brings a very promising facebook client to Nokia Devices. The only one so far comes by way of the frighteningly bad Social App produced by NOKIA. There’s quite some potential with Kasvopus, hopefully it will receive more updates and more features, but for now […]

Tommi Laukkanen is at it again, this time taking on the Facebook app (which no one else, not even Nokia have done a good job on. It pains me how terribly overlooked the Facebook app has been on Nokias. You would think it was some hobo social network with 5 people on it the way […]

I don’t know if this is new, all I know is I’ve never seen it before. It’s a guy kinda going through his day using Ovi services. Now I’m not sure why they’re talking about N900. It doesn’t have a Nokia Facebook/Twitter app and navigation still lacks voice prompts (As well as other Ovi Maps […]

The Nokia N900 is renowned for its multitasking prowess. Not just in terms of how many activities it can juggle but also in the contextual grid interface of LIVE windows.   Here’s another look – a single column view. What’s interesting is that it’s vertical. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YX9zIL9P29Y] A brilliant must have addition is shortcutD which can […]
