    N96 demo site up and running

    The N96 – which is similar to the N95 but is one more better – has finally gotten its own special Flash-based web-tour. It goes into all the dirty details regarding GPS, music playback, and Internet browsing but sadly leaves out the cool bloopy music we’re used to when we see these sorts of tours. Nothing amazingly exciting but if you’re a Nokiard you might get a kick… Read More

  • Nokia's new direction in the entertainment business

    Nokia's new direction in the entertainment business

    Meet the new Nokia, completely different from the old Nokia. Well, that’s what its executive vice president for entertainment and communities wants you to think. See, while Nokia is content creating genuinely good cellphones, some inside the company think it’s time to move in a different direction, namely entertainment. Hence, services like Ovi and deals with records labels. No… Read More

  • Android running on an Nokia N95

    A lot of you weren’t aware of this, but the opening music for Google’s new Android OS is Enter Sandman. Basically someone stuffed a Java VM and Android on an N95 and got it to run most of the applications including the dialer and Google Maps. This obviously requires some hit background music and poor lighting to be a true “proof of concept” so enjoy the videos above… Read More

  • MTMini: Even cheaper multi-touch

    Now that everyone is on the multi-touch bandwagon new systems are popping up all over. Seth Sandler’s solution is fairly ingenious. It uses a piece of paper and a camera to create a camera-based multi-touch interface. All you need is a box, a webcam, and some graph paper and he even includes the demo and application source code. The system can be used to demo multi-touch functionality or… Read More

  • Nokia N95 finally released in North America

    [photopress:nokia_n95_8gb_us_1.jpg,full,center] You’ve been patient little Nokia fans, haven’t you? You are now being rewarded. The N95, perhaps the most advanced cell phone after the iPhone, (even with my misgivings), is now available in North America direct, for $779 retail. This is the 8GB, US-friendly HSDPA version, and is SIM-free, meaning un-subsidized, and will work with… Read More

    Nokia's N95 8GB NAM FCC'd


    I know you’ve all been poring over FCC documents in your mad pursuit of Nokia news, but you might have missed this one. The new and improved N95 has been approved by the FCC, so now you can enjoy your High Speed Data Packet Access with their blessing. Apparently it looks just like the old one, which is just fine, though I would have preferred some big fins on it so you know… Read More

  • RotateMe, a free Symbian app to automatically rotate your mobile's screen

    RotateMe, a free Symbian app to automatically rotate your mobile's screen

    One of the handy things about phones like the iPhone and Ocean is the ability to switch between landscape and portrait depending on what app, game, or media you’re using. Well, a nice guy named Samir has written up a little Symbian app that lets you rotate your screen using a hotkey or, if you have an N95, by turning the screen. Handy, that. And it doesn’t appear to break… Read More

  • Mobile Browser Showdown: N95's Opera vs iPhone's Safari. Winner: Opera

    Mobile Browser Showdown: N95's Opera vs iPhone's Safari. Winner: Opera

    There has been some dispute over the speed of the browsers on these next-gen phones. N95 users say that the 3G connection makes all the difference, iPhone users say EDGE is just fine when you’ve got a great app like Safari. As it turns out, they seem to go at about the same speed in their natural habitats, but when you throw a 3rd-party browser into the mix, it’s all over. Opera… Read More

  • RC controlled by N95

    Navigating through NYC with a Nokia N95

    Yesterday, I was tasked with navigating the streets of Manhattan using only the GPS on a Nokia N95. Of course, I wasn’t alone in this ordeal. I was up against two heavy hitting travelers. Lee Abbomonte is a crazy mofo who is attempting to be the younget person to travel to every country in the world. He’s already been to 135 countries and he’s not even 30. Caleb Smith has… Read More

  • Nokia's N95 accelerometer demoed

    You know that cool thing the iPhone does when you turn it to landscape, it automagically knows to turn the content to match? That’s an accelerometer. The iPod Touch has one as well. And so does the Nokia N95, though Nokia doesn’t do much with it. And that’s the issue Mark at the Nokia Blog took up in this dope video. It’s not particularly usefull right now, but app… Read More
