toolsJust want to give everyone a quick heads up that Nokia has rolled out minor firmware update (3.2010.02-8) for Nokia N900 and you can get it as Firmware Over the Air (firmware over the air) through the Application manager or with Nokia Software Updater As well but in that case you'll lose all settings and apllications as well so be sure that you have valid back up before update.

If you haven’t been warned yet, than enable internet connection and refresh app manager and you should see the 16.2 MB large Firmware version 3.2010.02-8. It should be available for most of the generic product codes but owners of branded devices might have to wait a bit longer.

Although there is no detailed change log it is still highly suggestible to get it as it usually brings dozens of minor bug fixes and improves reliability of your pho... .. .

Qt 4.6 To Bring Multitouch & Gestures Support To Maemo and Symbian Smartphones

Monday, 07 September 2009 00:00

Written by Apocalypso.

qt_tmNokia announced today the availability of Technology Preview of Qt 4.6, a major update of the popular cross-platform application and UI framework which now includes the port to the Symbian platform with integration of the S60 framework, previously known as "Qt for S60".

This release also marks an important milestone for the open source community and another significant milestone in Qt’s life. Qt 4.6 is the first step in process of turning all of the great new Qt features you’ve been reading about on Labs into a coherent, stable and polished product that will power a new generation of applications.

Qt 4.6 extends Qt and introduces a range of new features and optimizations but unfortunately, it will be hard to go in details about all new features that are making their debut in latest QT release, so I’ll only highlight couple of new featuers that are set to bring mo... .. .

VIDEO: Nokia's Vision Of Mobile Mixed Reality

Wednesday, 09 September 2009 00:00

Written by Apocalypso.

iris_tmAs our lives become increasingly digital, and information about our environment becomes both more contextual and readily available, we will soon want to interact with the ever-growing amounts of information and expect capabilities provided by mobile technology to be delivered in more intuitive and convenient ways.

Rather than having to actively initiate a request for information or a service, we will want it to seamlessly blend into our daily routine, providing immediate feedback to us, as we need it, without disrupting our current activity. Smart phones are bringing about a new realm of "augmented" reality, where digital data can be visually overlaid into real life environments in real-ti... .. .

Wednesday, 02 September 2009 00:00

Written by Apocalypso.

 

fennecCouple of months ago, Mozilla, the nonprofit organization behind Firefox, has rolled out first public BETA version of Fennec, the long awaited mobile version of the their very popular desktop browser for Nokia's Linux based Maemo platform with hope that fully backed Fennec mobile browser could be ready to run on consumer smartphones by the end of the year for Windows Mobile and S60 devices.

Apparently, it seems that Mozilla will keep its promises and is planning to bring Mobile version of Firefox browser to the N900 in the next quarter, despite fact that Finns' native browser is powered by Mozilla technology with full Adobe Flash 9.4 support that in combination with high-resolution WVGA touch screen and fast internet connectivity makes mobile web browsing far more enjoyable than ever imagined!

Anyway, folks over at TechRadar managed to nab some time with the latest version of Fennec browser, and here are some exclusive photos of the new brow..... ...

NEC To Bring 12 Mpx photos & Full HD Video to Handsets

Wednesday, 15 July 2009 00:00

Written by Apocalypso.

cameraFew months back I made my feelings about 12 megapixel camera modules for mobile device abundantly clear, and as I said then, we should not treat these tiny little 12 MPX sensor chips for mobile devices as the revolutionary change in chip technology nor should we take mega pixels as a measure of camera performance as many hail them to be.

Generally speaking, the mobile technology progress gives consumers what they expect and the main problem is that leading manufacturers know it will be hard to sell a five or six megapixel camera when their competitor's shiny and tinny phone is equipped with 8, 10 or even 12 MP for not much more money!

Average mobile phone users don't know much about the accuracy and quickness of the camera's autofocus, neither about lens quality or sensor sensitivity, but I guess that most of you will agree with me that most of them ca... .. .
