I’ve been in Houston, Texas visiting relatives for the past week. Yesterday, I took my mom on a bus tour to a casino in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The trip took two and a half hours to get there. I’ll tell you how I survived the road trip with the Nokia N82, Nokia N95, Nokia N800, and Proporta charger
Firmware update version 20.2.005 became available to the North American Nokia N95 8GB, and sources have noted there’s not that many changes. Other than faster camera start-up, I also noticed the font has changed. It looks like it got shorter and more jagged than the old version. I took a few photo comparisons of the two versions for comparison.
I’m reviewing the Boxwave Cleartouch Crystal Screen Protector for the Nokia N95 8GB. I carry my phone in my pocket, so having a screen protector makes sure that anything else in my pocket does not scratch the screen. If you go though plenty of phones like me, you want to make sure that the screen is mint when selling it later.
I was going to write about my experience with the Nokia N82 at a sporting event, but instead I want to share my experience at a concert last Saturday and more specifically with the camera and battery life. In the end, I noticed bubbles appeared on a few pictures, but I was really happy with the battery performance.
Launching tomorrow, May 23rd, is The Mapsters website. These cute not-so-little creatures shows off the full feature set of Nokia Maps 2.0 and what you might want to use it for. I had the opportunity to preview the Mapsters before the launch. I’m not sure if I didn’t have enough breakfast because I’m getting a headache listening to their voices. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
What’s good about the S60-powered Nokia phones like the Nseries I mostly use is that they are like computers: you can install applications. I go through a few phones for testing and review, so I’m accustomed to starting fresh and installing applications all the time. I’ll list the first 10 applications I install on my phones. I hope this list helps out the new users.
