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 […]

All app menus are accessible via touch It’s advisable to set flash quality to “low” for increased frame rate on the games and then set to full […]

Video: The Phones Show – Episode 87 – Your favourite phone at the moment?

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 :). [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HE_1nLyBChA] via 3lib […]

Wrote this post a few weeks back but somehow never got round to ‘publishing’ it. After deep resetting the N97 and finding out “restore from memory card” did not restore my menu layout (as it did on 3rd edition), I got stuck in using the old S60 default menu layout, which was/is a pain! S60 […]

I just read an email from the WOM crew [the Don ;)]inviting me to a “virtual Q&A session” to discuss the latest firmware release (V11.0.021), where we see the N97 going in the future and what we’d like to see in future updates. This will take place on Thursday. I’m absolutely shattered right now and […]

If you’re unfortunate enough to encounter a problem on your Nokia N97, a hard reset maybe what you need to do. This wipes the entire phone memory and settings fresh to how it was (or should be) when you bought it. It’s also useful if you’re also unfortunate enough to have to send away your […]

Video: Behind the new Nokia homescreen – multiple homescreens coming soon?

| July 14, 2009 | Reply

In this video, the Nokia designers explain how the homescreen, as we have seen on the Nokia N97, has come about. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C35s7ZLm1go] Initially, I wasn’t sold on the subject when I heard about the homescreen – I thought it was like Nokia’s “active standby” just slightly beefed up. Having used it for over a couple […]

This application is a must have for anyone who travels frequently (or at all) on a train. Whenever I needed to travel by train, I used to go to www.thetrainline.com. You can access it from your S60 browser directly or you can choose the mobile version, m.thetrainline.com, which is more economic on the data and […]

The Nokia N97, if you take the time to get accustomed to it, has a pretty decent physical QWERTY keyboard. However, there are times that I need to use the onscreen alphanumeric keypad, like when I’ve only got one free hand or if I simply just want to text with the phone closed. The latter […]

Over at mobilbladet, they’ve got some absolutely drool-worthy photos of the black Nokia N97.  I’m really smitten with the black option, and I hope the rumors aren’t true that O2 have got the white N97 exclusive in the UK (I don’t want to move to Vodafone!); It looks discreet It looks professional It looks expensive […]

Now the N97 is by no way a Camera oriented device; not in today’s standards anyway (Grrr, Nokia!!) but 5MP Carl Zeiss isn’t too shabby at all. Below are some image samples said to have been taken by the N97. I say “said” as it looks astonishingly good compared to previous photo samples we’ve seen […]

If you’ve been following the Nokia N97, then the video below won’t tell you anything new about it. However, it’s still nice to watch, and certainly made me want to get the N97 (Black) even more now. Click HD for extra shiny goodness. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BG7CDNNjXeo] They seem to love playing with the slide mechanism of the […]
