Hi all! Andrew here. Bringing you a review of the Nokia N810 tablet in case you were ever in the market for such a gadget. Having owned the N800, I can tell you that the N810 is no sidegrade, and definitely takes it a step up.
Hey out there, new to writing for the Nokia Blog. I’ve been blogging on my old personal blog about tech gear and cell phones for quite some time now. Saw my buddy Mark had this site up, and well here I am. Anyway be on the lookout for my Nokia N810 review. Coming soon.
Blogging with mobility is becoming popular. For example, Ricky Cadden uses Maemo Wordpy on his Nokia N810. Norman John uses combination of the Nokia DT-22 Tripod, Nokia SU-8W Keyboard, and Nokia N95 8GB for mobile blogging. I like to keep blogging on my laptop, but I do moderate the Nokia Blog comments through my Nokia N95 phone using a plugin for Wordress.
Nokia already announced the Nokia N95 8GB NAM on January 7th, 2007, but the FCC approval was nowhere to be found. Today it appeared on the FCC pages. It is called the Nokia N95-4, supporting networks using 850/1900 MHz HSDPA (high speed data packet access) in the Americas. I took some screenshots of the information that mattered and the link to the documents.
So you have a bunch of photos geotagged with GPS-capable cameraphones like the Nokia N95 or the Nokia N82 and want to show it off on your blog. Here’s the tutorial on how to do it so you and other bloggers can show off where you’ve taken your pictures. This was how I was able to embed my map in my blog posts.
Here’s a video demonstration of the Nokia N95 Original (also known as N95-1), playing flash videos within the Youtube.com site. The firmware on this Nokia N95 is version 21.0.001, but its availability is still unknown. The current firmware at the time of this post, 20.0.015 can not play videos within the Youtube.com site.
During my quick stay in California, I went to Laguna Beach. The Nokia N95 NAM was with me to take pictures of the sunset as well as geotag the photos. I have never seen so many exotic cars in one place. The streets were filled with Lambos, Maseratis, Ferraris. No pictures of the cars, but check the embedded map to show where the pictures were taken.
The Nokia N82 firmware was updated today to version 11.0.117. The changelog shows nothing significant, but I was surprised that even when I backed up all my installed applications and contacts, no data was lost after the update. Previously, I had to reinstall everything. The Nokia N82 was updated on my Mac using VMware Fusion running Windows XP.
I used the Nokia N95 NAM to take pictures at Puerto Vallarta, one of the ports visited during the cruise last week. All the photos were geotagged thanks to Shozu. I also embedded a map in this post to show the route from the beach back to the ship using Sports Tracker. My girlfriend spent half of the day shopping for jewelry, so we did not really see much of the city.
I combined data from Sports Tracker and the geotagged photos uploaded on the Cabo Flickr set to embed a map in a blog post. This is pretty cool to use for bloggers who take pictures with GPS-enabled phones like the Nokia N82 and Nokia N95. Pictures show up as dots on the map and goes to its Flickr page when clicked.
