Why the Nokia N8 WON'T be like the Nokia N97. Nokia N8 vs Nokia N97.

Click X now or prepare for a mighty wall of text. This time last year, we were all in anticipation of Nokia’s hottest flagship – the Nokia N97. A year later, N97 is a dirty word, encapsulating Nokia’s failure to understand the high end. Unfortunately, many N97 users got burned. Myself included. Although there was […]

Hmm, I doubt anyone will read this but I couldn’t sleep (trying to finish off some presentations…meh, they want us to use OHP :[) and seeing these “reports” circulated got me kinda worked up. I haven’t made a proper Nokia rant in a while. Nokia’s been churning a lot of awesome sauce since N900 (Free […]

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 […]

I’m an eager fan of Steve Litchfield’s the Phone Show [aka The Smartphone Show] and was honoured to be asked to help out in Episode 96 where Steve gives an introduction to the wonderful N900 and Maemo 5. There’s some Symbian news and top 10 apps for something called an iPhone – what is that? […]

Video Review: Nokia N97 Mini Review – The Phones Show – Episode 94

| November 10, 2009 | 2 Replies

This episode by Steve Litchfield reviews Nokia’s N97 mini. The mini is the baby brother of the original N97, (seemingly) created to rectify to abysmal mistakes when Nokia succumed yet again poor compromises which rendered the original N97 somewhat ever so frustrating in general day to day use. There are several positive notes that Steve […]

Nokia uploaded an advert on YouTube about the Ovi Store: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rh9704QIgF4] In the video, Nokia claim that you can “GET THOUSANDS OF APPS FOR YOUR N97 AT THE OVI STORE” Now, “THOUSANDS” implies at multiple thousands, at least 2000, right? Are there at least 2000 applications for the N97 at the Ovi Store? NO! Are […]

UPDATE: Since installing V21.0.045 I have no more hard reset problems! I thought V21 didn’t fix it, but that was because I was just getting impatient and staring at that damn “Nokia” Screen too long. It does take about 50 seconds, where before it would only take around 28 – anything past 40s meant you […]

I just watched Episode 91 of Steve Litchfield’s “The Phones Show” where in this episode, he covers Application Stores: Apple’s App Store Nokia’s Ovi Store Google’s Android Market.

Theme of Rant/Suggestion: 2 parts – Sidebar & Icons in menu Have you been watching Nokia World 09 Online? Perhaps you’re actually there? Some big announcements of devices we’ve already heard of (Booklet 3G /N97 mini/n900), and some new ones too (X6, X3). But something a lot more interesting for current S60 5th edition owners […]
