  • Nokia's Qt Isn't Dead Yet

    When Microsoft partnered with Nokia, many thought the Symbian operating system died that day. But, it’s not entirely dead yet. Qt, the cross-application framework used by Nokia’s Symbian operating system developers, is said to continue going forward with the release of SDK 1.1 due out soon.

  • French health agency: Try to limit your exposure to mobile phones if only because we don't have enough data to say otherwise

    A group of researchers in France just recommended that we all limit our exposure to wireless devices, including mobile phones, Wi-Fi, and microwaves, because we really don’t understand how prolonged exposure to them can affect us. That’s particularly true with mobile phones, since they’ve really only been around for, what, 10 years? (Obviously there were available for longer… Read More

  • News flash: mobile phone sales slump

    Big surprise: people aren’t buying mobile phones the way they used to. Vodaphone saw an 18% drop in handset sales.

  • Doro HandleEasy cell is a good option for your sausage-fingered uncle

    That’s a bit of a grotesque-sounding headline, isn’t it? But it’s true. This handset is one of those designed for older people with limited manual dexterity and no experience with mobile phone technology. It’s got a simple layout and basic high-contrast screen, easy-to-set quickdial buttons, and no features to speak of other than text messaging and an FM radio… Read More

  • Mobile gaming is now apparently a billion dollar industry

    I’m tempted to take this study with a grain of salt, since they’re drawing far-reaching results from a simple poll, when there are actual market indicators they could have used (at greater cost and trouble) that would have given a more comprehensive picture of the industry. Still, for what it’s worth, the research they did indicates that a third of mobile phone users played… Read More
